Matalan have caused a stir this week as it has been revealed that they're selling a padded bra for young girls. The fast fashion store currently offers a padded bra for 8 year old girls for just £4.50. Last year, Primark landed in hot water over a padded bikini for children which was part of it's Summer range. It was later forced to withdraw the pieces from shops across the UK.
In Matalan, the bra is part of a range for 3-13 year olds with sizes starting from 28AA. This has left the tabloids accusing the store of sexualising young children. I am interested to know your thoughts on this story. Do you think that Matalan is in the wrong, or is this just a lot of fuss over nothing?
