Underwear uproar over Victoria's Secret panty collection

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Victoria's Secret collection "Bright Young Things" have panties with words like "I Dare You," "Call Me" and "Let's Make Out."

The collection is part of the company's PINK line.

"There is a fine line," Angela Fisch said.

She and her 16-year-old daughter often go shopping, but not always together.

"As a high schooler now, you know I let her shop a little more on her own and trust that she's buying appropriate undergarments," Fisch said.

But some parents are pushing for a panty boycott over the collection because they said it targets young girls.

They believe the ad is racy and are writing posts on Facebook.

"No, I wouldn't let my daughter wear something with 'Aloha' or 'Look at Me' on her backside," Fisch said.

And although the panty collection may be a bit much for some parents, Makenzie Moore had a different take on the underwear uproar.

"It comes down to the parents and if they're going to let their kids shop there," Moore said.

She's 22 years old and is familiar with the line.

"I don't think it's trying to go younger than I'd say 20s," Moore said.

That's what representatives with Victoria's Secret believe too. They said the PINK line is for college-aged women and the slogan "Bright Young Things" is used in conjunction with college spring break.

Fisch said that's how it should be and the line isn't for her daughter.

Representatives with Victoria's Secret said despite rumors, they have no plans to introduce a tween line.

Some parents signed a petition for the company to remove the ad and drop the line and plan to send it to company executives.
