Halloween has been growing in popularity for years. It’s one holiday where people can let their hair down.
For many teens and even older women, that means shedding inhibitions and stripping down.
They trade Abercrombie & Fitch and Anne Taylor for straps, lace, silk stockings, micro-mini skirts, plunging tops and bare midriffs.
Even characters from Disney children’s movies like “Frozen” are getting sexed up.
Of course, they wouldn’t last on store shelves for a minute if they didn’t sell. And, they sell like hotcakes, according to retailers.
Meanwhile, over-the-top sexy Halloween costumes that objectify girls have been a sore spot for feminists and women’s groups for years.
After all, Halloween is traditionally a childrens’ holiday. But, increasingly, it’s become a national Bacchanalia.
Many corporations know a marketing opportunity when they see one.
