Jour Après Lunes Child Lingerie is Provocateur ou Chic?

Jours Après LunesNew French lingerie brand Jour Après Lunes is making waves over here in America, but not for the reasons you think. The brand sells lingerie for children aged 4-12. As we know, the French think baby women a la Thylane Blondeau are cute. Americans, on the other hand, have visions of JonBenet Ramsey, and that is what is going on now. Just like the Thylane Blondeau scandal from a few weeks ago, Americans are furious and the French are nonchalant.

I don’t know how I feel about this. It truly is complicated. Do I think the lingerie is cute for little girls? Yes. I saw some of the same things for little girls in Limited Too or even Walmart. I do think this images are a bit much though. I don’t think girls should be posing like sexy little women. There is something about that that just doesn’t sit well with me at all. What do you think? Am I just being an overreacting Puritanical American? Photo from Fashionista.

  1. I think it’s completely inappropriate, and I just can’t fathom how someone would think children’s lingerie would be a good idea. The very premise of lingerie is centered around sex – why would you want to make a child look sexy!? I understand that the French are far more liberal with nudity than we are, but I didn’t think that extended to children. What’s wrong with keeping kids as kids? What is with this current obsession with creating grown-up, hipster, trendy kids? I personally don’t think it’s cute at all, and I don’t feel Puritanical in the least saying so. /rant 🙂

    1. Exactly! Kids should stay kids as long as possible. I know the French don’t really have that weird transitional time called teenage adolescence in their society, but it is still weird
