Four year olds DON'T need lingerie

As Salaamu Aalaykum,

A few years back I had a conversation with a group of women who were upset some Muslims put hijabs on little girls and felt that it was sexualizing her.  At the time I didn't have a daughter so I didn't see what the big mess was about.  NOW that I do have an 11 month old daughter I put a baby hijab on her when we were visiting a sister's iftar, she looked super cute in it and I LOVED IT! It framed her little chubby cheeks so well and her only 2 teeth at the time shined prominently.  I don't put it on her everyday and that was the 2nd time she had worn hijab.

Anyway, while discussing the following article they didn't see anything wrong with a company making lingerie inspired underwear for four year olds. I see THAT as sexualizing little girls!

I don't know what to say other than I REALLY hope no parent purchases these for their daughters as it encourages this behavior.

Stripes and chucks

In the name of Allah, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Peace be with you السلام عليك

Lately I've been into stripes I wanted a tanktop but I wasn't satisfied with the way it came out but the shirt I ended up choosing looks too fancy.

Would you wear more than one striped piece at a time?
