Concerned parents are blasting discount fashion chain Primark for selling “padded” bras to children.
The controversial bras are branded “My First Bra” and are assumed to be targeted toward girls age seven to 13.
GIRLS AS YOUNG AS NINE REQUESTING LABIAPLASTY
One woman took to Twitter to express her concern, arguing that the bras are sexualizing children.
This isn’t the first time the company has been called out for this issue. Another person noticed the same thing last year with a similar bra.
Though not everyone agrees. Some people feel that the bras aren’t an issue, pointing out that everyone develops differently. Another Twitter user noted that they don’t even appear to have much padding.

A spokesperson for Primark told Cosmo U.K. that the allegation the bras are padded is incorrect.
“We would like to be absolutely clear that these bras are molded, not padded. ‘My first bra’ ranges are designed and constructed purely for support, comfort, and modesty and adhere to the BRC’s childrenswear guidelines. There is no enhancement. This type of molded bra is extremely common, and selling them is entirely normal practice on the high street.”
