Do Super Skinny Girls' Jeans Encourage Eating Disorders?

Last night I got a sneak peek at Old Navy’s 2010 holiday collection. While I was busy obsessing over an adorable pair of ruffled mary janes, though, my boss was wondering what message Old Navy’s super skinny jeans were sending little girls.

Old Navy is definitely not the first brand to manufacture skinny jeans for little girls, but they very well may be the first to have sewn the words “super skinny” right into the jeans. I get that super skinny references the style of the jeans, but you can’t help but wonder what little girls will think every time they slip these jeans on.

Now don’t get me wrong–I love skinny jeans, especially on little girls because they can pull them off. But should we be calling them something else for impressionable young girls who already have enough pressure to be thin? Weigh in in the comments.

Ironically, Old Navy’s super skinny jeans are available in plus sizes, so at least they’re attempting to be inclusive of all sizes and body types despite the unfortunate stitching at the waist. And really, if Old Navy was looking for something to sew on the jeans, they should have went with super cute because that’s what the jeans really are.
