Quote:
Primark, the discount clothing store, has withdrawn padded bikini tops aimed at girls as young as seven following criticism that the items were sexualising children.

The £4 bikini, which comes in pink with gold stars or black with white polka dots, was part of the retailer’s swimming costume range.

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.
