I don't like it personally and probably wouldn't put it on my daughter if I had one. But if your friend liked it, that's all that really matters.

I think also the boys muscles costume is in the context of a well known cartoon character. that kind of overtakes the muscles/adult body on a child suggestion to me.
this is all about perceptions so what one person interprets as inappropriate and overly sexual might be a-ok to another.
when I see the little boy, I see Spider-Man. the muscles are incidental to the overall look.
but, as others have pointed out, muscles aren't really as sexually suggestive as breasts.
I also think there's a tendency to sexualize girls and it's much easier for little girl stuff to be sexualized/interpreted the wrong way.
sadly I think it's the world we live in. but I would dress my child with all that in mind. I know there's no way my mother would've dressed me in that top. I still think it's a really cute top, maybe just unfortunate placement of the clam shells

I think it's fine. I don't see any thing sexualised about it. But I guess I could see someone else like a pervert looking at it in a sexual kind of way. Maybe as part of a costume for a party or something it would be just fine though.
