File this under unsurprising: Abercrombie & Fitch, of all wholesome places, now purveys padded bikini tops for 8-year-old girls.

ABC News took a look at the latest in tween swimwear, which had Babble.com bloggers up in arms, writing, "The push up bra is, effectively, a sex tool, designed to push the breasts up and out, putting them front and center where they're more accessible to the eye (and everything else). How is this okay for a second-grader?"

However, Abercrombie isn't the first to be under fire for selling such things. Last year, British department store Primark pulled padded bikini tops for girls aged 7 from its shelves after complaints from child protection groups. The UK chain donated all money made from sales to charity.
