Poundland has been accused of selling “crop tops for babies”.

The budget retailer is selling pink tees that display the words “smile, sparkle and shine”.

They are styled with high-waisted leggings, which means there isn’t any tummy showing when the items are worn together.

But some customers aren’t happy that the tops are being sold at all – including mum Kathy Clarky.

She told her local Facebook group: "This is by far not the worst case to use as an example.

"Poundland is selling a crop top for six to nine months onwards. These are not pyjamas for the comfort of your own home on a six to nine-month-old baby.”

Kelly added: "Perhaps a vest would cover the midriff but what about on a two-year-old as it goes up to 24 months. Is it just me? I find this really DISGUSTING.

"It's amazing how many people pass the buck to others OWN mindset, yes pedos will look at any child regardless whether they're wearing a coat or crop top and shorts but personally I feel as though I don't need to make my daughter perhaps more appealing for those sickos."

Some agreed with Kelly’s thoughts, with one writing: “Yuck”.

Another commenter said: “Yes it’s disgusting. My babies won’t wear anything like that.”

Many disagreed with Kelly’s opinion though – and argued the garment is perfectly innocent.

One commenter said: “STOP sexualising children and the clothes they wear.

“STOP shaming parents for choosing to put their children in clothes like this."

And another argued: "Adults shouldn't be sexualising children's clothing. They are children. The problem lies with you."

Poundland were equally unimpressed by the complaint.

A spokesperson told the Daily Star: “We’re more than bemused. It’s just a T-shirt and leggings set with high-waisted leggings so when worn together, no midriff is on show. ”
