Your very post and the language you use says to me that you are imposing your own assumptions on this photo.
I would probably find it very confronting if one of my girls posted something like this but I'd have to think very carefully before I accused her of doing it for the reasons you identify.

It does become a social outlet for them and the preferred method of keeping in touch with friends outside school. My 15 year old has only recently signed up to Facebook and mainly uses it for group chats. She has had instagram for longer.
The downside is when there has been a party / sleepover and someone is left out and knows they have been left out when photos are posted. Or as we have found "friends" taking photos of your child in an embarrassing pose and posting them on instagram. It helps having an older sibling telling the offender to delete said photo.
I'm not above taking devices to work and locking them in a filing cabinet until things blow over.
My DS has really only used Facebook group chats for collaborative efforts with school assignments, but chats to friends on skype while they all play the same game online.

Nail polish that matches 'leotard'
Hair pulled back
Face out of view
Straps of something on arms
It all adds up to a picture of provocativeness.
My assessment would be very different if there was a picture of a gymnast exercising in her leotard. This is not an athletic pose by any means.
I'm not saying it's all about being provocative. Chances are there was another slant to the intention behind the photo as well - artistic, creative etc. To deny provocativeness as one of the factors behind the photo though IMO would be to deny the truth. 13 year olds have raging hormones. Hormones + social media = eeek!

I know that stating that there is worse out there, therefore this is not bad is a weak argument, but unfortunately it is becoming the norm amongst teenage girls.

Her hair is completely natural..unbrushed and about to be put in a bun for Cali.
Nails matching leo is coincidental.
She wears very little jewelry other than stud earrings and my old high school ring.
Her face is in view in the original. .but I have covered it with a bandaid ☺. In the original she is looking at her phone - neutral expression.
The black bands are hair lackies. ..for the bun.
I see what you are saying, but those thongs are all everyday things...
