Good for The Limited

I'm generally not a fan of the Limited. After all, this is the company that thought it was a good idea to sell thong underwear emblazoned with slogans like "wink, wink" and "eye candy" in little girl sizes.

That said, my cousin's boyfriend has started working at the corporate offices of their "tween" division and he reports back that they have lactation rooms with corporate pumps, storage space, comfy chairs and locked doors. ;) (Don't ask me how he knows this, I'd imagine it was mentioned on his tour and he paid attention since he knows I'm such a lactivist.)

So, to the folks at "The Limited"...you suck for trying to sex up our kids, but at least you get a little credit for knowing that they need breast milk in the years before you turn them into tramps.

    I think that the company that made the thongs you are describing was Abercrombie and Fitch not The Limited. Or are they owned by the same people? Most things are these days. :)

    A&F is owned by The Limited. (Or at least it was at the time, it may have been spun off by now.) The Limited is the parent company of

    A&F
    Victoria's Secret
    White Barn Candle Company
    Limited Too
    Justice (for girls)
    Express
    Bath and Body Works
    C.O. Bigelow

    And I think a few more... They don't list Limited Too, Justice or A&F on their site anymore, but it's because they are spinning them off as separate divisions.

    The Limited does suck. Worst several years of my life. Yeah, they have a room but you think they are happy about it? I'm sure it's one of those begrudging things.

    I think it's funnt, too, that the off loaded Limited Too and then picked up another tween line, Justice.
