Mississippi middle school is slammed for offering SHAPEWEAR to its young female students --


Southaven Middle School in northern Mississippi sent a letter home to parents of girls at the school, who are aged 10 to 14 

It discussed the downsides of having negative body image, including poor self-esteem

It concluded by offering literature on body image as well as bras and shapewear for the top and bottom, asking parents to provide sizing for their daughters 

Mom Ashley Heun shared the letter online, slamming it for perpetuating the problem of negative body image

Others, including author Glennon Doyle, have also criticized the 'unacceptable' policy

A representative for the school has since said that the initiative had been 'discontinued'
