Sexy Underwear for Teens

I only have boys, so while I have an opinion on this, wanted to see how the moms of teen girls feel about store's such as Victoria's Secret carrying lines of sexy underwear that are for college aged girls, but appeal to a teen audience.  They were recently targeted by moms for their "Bright Young Things" spring break line.  From Time.com: 

But should anyone be walking around in undies that declare “Dare You,” “Call Me” or “Feeling Lucky?” like some of the missives printed on the manufacturer’s spring-break inventory? That’s certainly a matter of personal taste — for adults. But for young girls, “This speaks to the idea that girls have a fantasy of being raped, that women on some level are asking for it,” says Dana Udall-Weiner, a Santa Fe, N.M., psychologist who works with girls on body image.

Would you let your teen wear suggestive underwear?  Do you think that teen girls have a right to feel confident and sexy, or are they getting the wrong message from retailers?

"Nope, no one has answered that question yet." ------ Why should they? It's not relevent, it's not even slightly connected to anything that anyone has said.

Yep, that is why lol

"Can you answer the questions I asked about PT's in our parents and grandparents days?" ------- Why should anyone answer that question? How is it relevant? Did anyone (besides you) make that claim (therefore needing to defend it)?

The more of this thread I read, the more I'm thinking it must be the type of "guys" that SG knows. You know, the "manly man"? Yuck.

NO.  Why is that you think those of us without teenage girls can't speak for shopping for underwear but you can speak for ALL teenage boys on their emotions?  Yea, double standard much?

Nope, I met my dh when he was a teenager lol. 

Again, I didn't say anything that you are claiming, nothing I have said on this subject is similar to what you are saying. Zip.  I still don't think it's funny that you think a proper appropriate response to inappropriate action is funny and cause for concern but I guess my standards are different?  I don't know, help me out here...why do you think this response is cause for concern?   I think you really need to look at your reaction to this situation.

You are really making no sense. Can you answer the questions I asked about PT's in our parents and grandparents days? I guess they just didn't have "morals" either like these "bad" girls who wear these underwear?

We shop at Rue21 quite a bit.  I have two jackets from there and a pair of yoga-style pants. The Girl has bought a ton of hats and socks from there.  And I bought dh a shirt there for Christmas.

"No, Rollmops I have said from the beginning of this thread that she does NOT have that type of underwear. Sigh....." -------------- OK, so why are you arguing that it is fine and dandy if you won't let your own kid wear it either?

Not for young girls.

Considering teenage boys could be suspended, expelled or arrested for having them on their phones? Yes.

I would not be married to a man who wanted to wear vulgar misogynistic t-shirts.
