Lingerie for 4 to 12 year olds?

Yes you read right, there is now a lingerie line aimed purely at children between the ages of 4 and 12 called ‘Jours Apres Lunes’, which designs ‘loungewear’ or ‘loungerie’ for young children. It’s quite interesting that this should occur not long after the uproar surrounding Thylane Blondeau’s provocative cover shots for French magazine Cadeaux, in which the 10 year old girl was made up to look like a woman.

These children, or toddlers in some cases, are made to look far more grown up than they are, with faces full of make-up, scantily-clad and lounging provocatively for the camera. But one has to ask, is this ok? Are we Brits really showing our world-famous prudishness or are the French displaying a blatant disregard for our children’s innocence? Surely if we were to search for these type of images without thinking of this designer we’d be in trouble for downloading child pornography, and the photographer shamed as some sort of paedophile? But because it’s a designer suddenly this sexualisation of children is acceptable.

Take a look at the pictures below and decide for yourselves....
