It is no surprise that immodest clothing intended as daywear for women is pervasively marketed in Western cultures. However, a new study released by Kenyon College researchers documents the trend of pushing elements of this type of styling into the category of girls' clothing. The study examined pre-adolescent clothing that is marketed online in the United States and found that around 30% of items had some type of sexualizing characteristic that would traditionally be considered inappropriate for daytime wear, especially for a girl whose figure had not yet matured.
