Further high street stores have been caught selling sexy kidswear, according to an investigation by The Sun.
Following yesterday’s revelations that Primark was selling a padded bikini top for children – which the value retailer withdrew and apologised for – the Sun newspaper reported that it found further offending products on the shelves of other retailers.
All the retailers responded to the newspaper. A Tammy spokeswoman said: “Having reviewed the products we will be withdrawing them from sale.”
Tesco promised to review where the tiny bras are sold in stores, while Next boss Simon Wolfson said: “We will look into the issue. If anything needs changing, we will do it immediately.”
Peacocks boss Richard Kirk said: “We have started checking every product to make sure everything is appropriate.”
Primark said yesterday it had pulled its padded bikini range and will donate any profits to a children’s charity.
Primark’s £4 bikini sets attracted allegations about the “premature sexualisation” of children and were labelled “disgraceful” by Conservative leader David Cameron, who has previously criticised other retailers for similar reasons.
