Matching Mom and Daughter Swimsuits

Faux Leather Bikini For Girls: Ga Ga or Gag?

Oh, put this in the category of "what will they think of next"! Matching mom and tot apparel isn't reserved for the preppy Lilly Pulitzer set. Now mamas who like things a bit more on the edgy side can outfit their lil ones in the same bohemian-style resort wear they wear. INCA, which counts hot moms such as Kate Hudson, Halle Berry, Naomi Watts and Salma Hayek as fans, has introduced mom and daughter versions of its faux leather bikini ($75 for the children's size and $175 for the adult) just in time for Valentine's Day shopping. The company is even marketing the mini version as the perfect gift for "Daddy's little girl."

For some reason, I don't expect to see Nahla or Valentina wearing the two-piece anytime soon.

Nude tot picture in a bathtub in a family album that is offline--totally OK. This photo--not OK! The idea of parading your child in a very revealing outfit is sickening. There are so many perverts out there, this is just fodder for them. I would not mind a two-piece tankini, but a string bikini is just asking for trouble--grown up or child. To those who think this photo is OK--you've never been molested as a child.

hmm... so is it more provocative than a nude tot? i guess since i dont mind nudity for young kids, i mean its not MY THING but it doesn't really bother me either this doesnt seem so bad. but i agree that the photo is horrible "The company is even marketing the mini version as the perfect gift for "Daddy's little girl."" - this is for sure weird though!

I think what's wrong with this bikini isn't the fabric, it's the model. If they made a black leather one-piece or a two-piece with a more age-appropriate cut, I think it would actually look pretty awesome and rock n roll, without the sexual vibe. :/

the problem with this bikini isn't what its made of and the color. Bikini's for adults are NOTHING like bikini's for children. Adult bikinis are cut to reveal and emphasize. This has nothing to do with just liking the type of style, it has to do with putting a very scantily made bikini on a child. It barely covers her, and she has nothing to cover! The bottoms are hardly on.. its disgusting, to be honest, a child doesn't need a sexy bikini.

Lovely. All she needs is a pair of stripper heels.

That is disgusting. I have tattoos, I have leather pants, and I love motorcycles. I would never dress my kids in that, and I never wear anything even close to that, even to the beach, when I'm with my son. I completely agree that this is oversexualizing children and it is completely disgusting.

ok i voted gag, since i dont like it. i would never wear it as an adult either. i hate the rocker/ motorcyle look, leather clothing, skulls piercings, tatoos, etc. however if mommy loves this style then having the kid match (not forcing though) isnt so bad. personally i love a classic one piece on a little girl, though i've heard thats the most inconvenient choice out there. but if you're willing to put, say a babyish orange floral spandex bikini on your little darling, i dont think you can assume the mom who prefers the 'tough' looking bikini cares for her girl any less. and really no matter what they wear, you have to watch them. conservative clothing will never be protection from predators. so just dress your kids well, in a way that both of you are comfortable with (if thats possible) and above all DONT LET THEM OUT OF YOUR SIGHT.

Little girls shouldn't be wearing two-piece swim suits period.

Yeah.. that's just alarmingly wrong in my opinion, and i can be pretty lax. I don't mind the heels... I prefer one pieces on kids just becuase I think they're cuter, but the two piece kid ones that are halter tops are nothing like this. Why would you ever stick something that really borders on skanky on an ADULT on a child??

This is so sick! You really need to take that photo down, Lil. Whoever dresses their kids in stripper clothes needs to get arrested for child neglect!

i wish you'd take the picture down. this is so wrong, on so many levels. it's not only a bikini (which i guess i don't find all that objectionable), but a string bikini...that's leather...for a 4-year-old...and then this picture of this little girl who almost has this "sexy" pose is just foul. why can't parents just let their kids be kids and keep childhood innocent and carefree. i am no prude, but i will always, always vocalize my contempt for the oversexualization of our children. yuck.

So inappropriate for a child to be wearing a bikini like this. Must be the mom living vicariously through their child again.
FrankiLee FrankiLee 7 years I don't think little girls should be sporting a faux leather bikini look at all. My daughter wears one-pieces and that's how it's going to stay for a while.
