Victoria’s Secret has since posted this response on the company’s Facebook page.  “In response to questions we recently received, Victoria’s Secret PINK is a brand for college-aged women. Despite recent rumors, we have no plans to introduce a collection for younger women. “Bright Young Things” was a slogan used in conjunction with the college spring break tradition.”

Still, some parents aren’t buying it – and say they won’t be buying any suggestive thongs for their teens and tweens.

“Victoria’s is doing what sells,” says Cindy Jaynes, mother of a 13-year-old daughter.  “Sex sells.  It’s disappointing; but, it’s the age we’re in.”

Jaynes says as a parent she works to convey her family’s values to her daughter, but worries that the teen is still exposed to so many competing and often harmful messages.

“They just want to be accepted. And they think if they’re doing this, this makes them seem older, more mature… It’s really sad.”
