A&F Defends Thong Underwear for Kids
The thong underwear comes in sizes for ages 10 to 14 and does not come in small sizes, he said. "It's just a fun fashion accessory," Carney said. "It's been very well received by our customers."
Abercrombie & Fitch has a history of controversy with its products and catalogs. In April, it removed a line of T-shirts and apologized after Asian groups claimed the products reinforced negative stereotypes. In June 2001, A&F fended off calls by the lieutenant governor of Illinois to boycott the company to protest sexual content in one of its magalogs.
