One Mom Is Outraged after Finding Padded Bras Sold for Young Girls

It’s not untrue that puberty nowadays begins earlier and earlier, especially in girls. This is a fact of the modern world and a lot of underwear and clothes brands are trying to adapt.

But, is a 6-year-old really in need of a padded bra?

This is at least what Angela Fellars, a mom from Illinois, asked the public on her Facebook status when she found out that Calvin Klein sells padded bras for girls aged 6.

Fellars was shocked to see that Nordstorm sold padded bras for girls who’re very young and she was definitely confused!

Mother Shocked from Seeing Padded Bras Sold for 6-Year-Old Girls

If we take into account that a size 6X is a step up from toddler clothes, we can understand this mother’s disbelief. A lot of other parents who commented on her posts were also concerned with the limited amount of appropriate clothes for their young girls.

Despite most people agreeing with this mom’s worries, several individuals thought differently. They claimed these pads aren’t there to enhance the girl’s breasts, but rather to provide comfort with the tenderness from breast growth.

Despite most people agreeing with this mom’s worries, several individuals thought differently. They claimed these pads aren’t there to enhance the girl’s breasts, but rather to provide comfort with the tenderness from breast growth.

Still, even though a lined bra can help girls, do they really need a molded foam cup at this young age? This padding will in a way make the girls look like they have fully developed breasts, wouldn’t it?

Although the pads are removable, the question which comes up is why were they even there in the first place?

Youngsters Are already Faced with Impossible Body & Beauty Standards

Aren’t children already faced with a long list of impossible beauty and body standards pushed from the media and internet?

We believe brands should make clothes with sizes appropriate for a certain age and always put comfort first.

 What about you? What is your opinion on padded bras for girls who’re 6? Do you think they would help or not?
