Primark has stopped selling padded bikini tops for children after criticism that they sexualised young girls, a spokesman for the chain said today.
The company apologised for any offence caused by the product and said profits from any bikinis already sold would be given to a children's charity.
A spokesman said: "Primark has taken note of the concern this morning regarding the sale of certain bikini tops for girls, a product line that sells in relatively small quantities.
"The company has stopped the sale of this product line with immediate effect.
"Primark will donate all the profits made from this product line to a children's charity, and apologises to customers for any offence caused."
What the hell! how did they ever allow anybody to make a bikini wich is padded for a 7 year old?!
did absoloutly no one realise in the process of designing,making and selling these that it was so wrong. in my opinion i would never lit my daughter wear padded bras/bikinis not until shes old enough to pay for them herslef.
what sort of message is this sending out to our children? what parents actually thought it would be a good idea to get there child a padded bikini? what about all the perverted men out there...did no one think of them!!
whats your opinion?
