A store in Mississippi State selling "bikini onesies," which show a silhouette of a woman in a polkadot bikini has sparked criticism.
Gordman's store in Southaven, MS, has been selling the baby bodysuits, which some have deemed as totally inappropriate for babies.
The onesies were produced by "Wild Child", which is a brand manufactured by Bon Bebe. The onesies were sized for 18-month-old baby girls.

Bon Bebe's website describes "Wild Child" as their "collection of outrageously funny bodysuits and tees. Some are cute, some have attitude, some rock, and they will all make you smile!"
However, their bikini onesies seems to have had just the opposite affect, with one parent telling Action News 5, "I just think that is a little ridiculous that you would put that on your child."
Outraged parents have criticized the onesies, saying it sends out the wrong message. The sexualization of young girls is already a problem, with clothes ranging form padded bikini bras for 7-year-olds to crotchless panties for school-aged children.
Last year, French brand Jours Apres Lunes launched a "loungerie" line for baby/toddler girls 3 to 36 months. They advertised their product by slapping on heavy make up to the little girls.
Do you think the bikini onesies are appropriate?
