Burlesque-Inspired Wardrobe Malfunctions for Babies

Call it awesome and funny or just plain disgusting, but Twisted Twee’s Nipple Tassel top for infants is in hot debate on the blogosphere. That’s good--free publicity at its finest!

The owner of the London-based clothing company defends her concepts, saying it actually makes a point against the sexualization of our children, especially since it is a full coverage, long sleeve tee:
“There is nothing very sexy about a baggy, lap neck, long sleeved t-shirt for a 6-month-old. So by embellishing this style of garment with printed nipple tassels, the result is not that the baby becomes sexualized by the tassels, but that the tassels are made benign and silly by the baby. In fact the more inert, innocent and unaware the infant is, the more ludicrous the contrast becomes.”


Whatever your opinion is on its appropriateness, there certainly is a market for statement-making apparel for kids. Check out some of Twisted Twee’s other crazy designs above and as reported by Trend Hunter last month. Stats for Toddler Nipple Tassels Trending: Older & Mild
