Primark in huge trouble over horrifically inappropriate clothing
Primark have caused controversy over a new line of underwear designed for young girls.
The high street clothing brand has been accused of sexualising young girls by selling padded bras for girls aged as young as 7 or 8.
Parents are condemning the bras, arguing that they unnecessarily sexualise young girls.
The extra padding undoubtedly makes young girls look older than they are, which parents argue is wholly inappropriate.
Some mothers are arguing that the bras suggest that girls as young as 7 or 8 need extra support, encouraging the notion that girls should constantly be concerned with the appearance and size of their chest.
However, other people have argued against the idea that these bras are sexualising or preventing children from being children.
Some have argued that it's just a bit of padding - not a full on push up bra. Whilst others have argued that everybody's body develops differently, with some young girls potentially needing these bras.
Horrified that u don't know ur own body. Didn't you learn in school that everyone's body develops differently? You're the one sexualising.— Stevie (@Sergeant_Stevie) July 26, 2017
Get a grip. It's a wee bit of padding not a push up bra.— // jen 💀 (@fringe_xo) July 27, 2017
In a statement given to the Metro, Primark said that the bras were 'moulded', not padded:
'This allegation is simply wrong. We would like to be absolutely clear that these bras are moulded, not padded.'
What do you all think? Are these bras inappropriate?
Is @Primark's selling of moulded/padded bras for girls as young as 7-8 years old inappropriate?— Everything Student (@everythinstudnt) July 27, 2017
