A Utah mother was so incensed about some racy T-shirts for sale at a local mall that she bought all the stock so the shirts would no longer be on display.

Judy Cox was shopping with her teen son in Orem, Utah, on Saturday when she saw the "Visual T-Shirts" for sale at the PacSun store, the Provo Daily Herald reported.

The T-shirts feature photographs of scantily dressed female models in racy poses shot by L.A. photographer Van Styles.

Cox told the paper she asked the store manager to remove the shirts, but the manager said she couldn't without talking to corporate office.

Cox also spoke to mall management, who she thought should enforce community standards against the display of vulgarity and nudity, the Daily Herald reported. Mall manager Rob Kallas said Cox's wasn't the only complaint he'd received, but the decision to remove displays would have to come from the city attorney.

The inaction prompted Cox to buy all of the shirts from the store for US$567.

She told the paper she'd like to destroy the shirts, but will let the store's corporate office figure out what to do with them when she returns them on day 59 of the 60-day return policy.

PacSun didn't respond to the paper's request for an interview, but told other shoppers the display was taken down on Saturday.

Cox said if she hadn't bought the shirts, they'd still be available for minors to see and purchase.
