A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Lots of mixed messages. On one hand, Paige whines a lot, avoids responsibility, and can be very self-defeating. And her mom is constantly trying to soothe her with food. But her mom also encourages Paige and says she's proud of her. And Paige is, in fact, trying to get herself out of her mess, listening to advice and even taking it.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Several models and customers are shown wearing bikinis, but it's an issue of fashion, not sexiness.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that, in some respects, swimsuit designer Ashley Paige provides one heck of a bad example of how to destroy your own business. While she acknowledges that she's not good at money, she also perpetuates her problems by avoiding them (ignoring bills, etc.). Paige practices a form of New Age spirituality that includes Tarot cards and séances. Also, because she makes high-end bikinis, viewers see lots of gorgeous women in skimpy swimsuits, but it's more about fashion than sexuality. Kids may not be totally engaged by the topic, but there's not much age-inappropriate content here if they do tune in.
Is It Any Good?
Despite coming across as a whiny ditz, Paige is oddly compelling. It's embarrassingly obvious how she got into her predicament: She routinely avoids paying bills until she absolutely must, and she post-dates checks and then gets upset when they're deposited before the date and they bounce. But you also get the sense that she's sincerely trying to get her act together. She asks for advice and seems to be taking it. And she does have some understanding of business and knows enough to talk about having a business plan.
Overall, the producers do a great job of creating a story from the oddments of Paige's life. So, in spite of all her mistakes, you can't entirely help rooting for her. And at the very least, her experiences serve as an excellent cautionary tale.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
