Southaven Middle School in northern Mississippi sent a letter home to parents of girls at the school, who are aged 10 to 14
It discussed the downsides of having negative body image, including poor self-esteem
It concluded by offering literature on body image as well as bras and shapewear for the top and bottom, asking parents to provide sizing for their daughters
Mom Ashley Heun shared the letter online, slamming it for perpetuating the problem of negative body image
Others, including author Glennon Doyle, have also criticized the 'unacceptable' policy
A representative for the school has since said that the initiative had been 'discontinued'
