Forever 21 is a clothing store known for its trendy, affordable clothes and accessories where little girls, teenagers and young women alike shop.

They just added a new maternity line to their "Love 21" brand which will only be sold in six states for now, Texas being one.

Some parents are concerned that the new maternity line will make their young daughters think that its cute to be pregnant at a young age.

Glenn Works, a father of two says he didn't like the idea of the maternity clothes being offered in Forever 21. "I would not let my daughters in this store, no there's other stores to go in but when they're 15,16,17 they see maternity clothes they'd probably think it was an okay thing," Works said.

But some new moms like, Aracely Ramirez, say that they wish these maternity lines would have been around while they were pregnant.
"I really like it I'm a new mom, I'm young, I'm 26 so i don't feel like the maternity clothes we have in town really cater to a young mom," Ramirez said.  

Forever 21 sent us this statement, it says the company did not create, design or distribute Love 21 Maternity to target, or appeal specifically to pregnant teens. Any relationship between teen pregnancy rates and the locations of our stores is unintentional.

I THINK FOREVER21 IS MORE FOR GIRLS IN THEIR 20'S NOT THE TEENS N I THINK ITS PRETTY COOL THAT THEY WANT TO HAVE A NEW LINE OF MATERNITY I AM 23YEARS A NEW MOM I JUST HAD MY BABY A YEAR AGO N I WISH A YEAR AGO THEY HAD THIS LINE I LOVE TO SHOP AT FOREVER21 AND I SAY THEY SHOULD CARRY THIS LINE IN AROUND CHICAGO!

Welcome to the reality of the world.As mentioned before teens do get pregnant.Its our social culture of the U.S. right now that says "hey your 15-17 and pregnant its okay everything will work out."

Most girls get cuddled after they get pregnant & still don't see the harsh realilty of things because mommy and daddy will be there.Let my teen get pregnant and guess what her dreams just died.Drop out of school get your GED and start supporting your child or move out and have the father do it.

I think we should focus more on steering our daughters in the right direction rather than worry about a store that sells this maternity line. If a young girl gets pregnant, can we honestly say that its Forever 21s fault. Of course not.

Listening to the comments on this story tonight compelled me to write in. I have two daughters ages 17 and 15 and I think it's ridiculous to have the mentality that my daughters might walk into that store and see some maternity clothes and think how fun it would be to be pregnant. If maternity clothes makes them want to get pregnant, then I'm not doing my job as a parent. Absurd!

ok well forever 21 i believe is specifically designed for girs within there 20's, not there early teens! then it would be called forever teens lol... if teens and there parents have a problem with the new maternity line, then they should not shop there and get on with there day... there are alot of people who would like to shop there and lets face it, its the 20th century and teens do get pregnant and this gives them a place to shop and buy clothes that is cute for around there age group...
