M&S have taken a lot of stick for selling these but I can't really see what the problem is.The garment, which is stocked as part of the school uniform category on the website, is controversial as it reportedly would fit a child around the age of 3-4. The sizes on the website are a vague, coming in ‘small’, ‘medium’ and ‘large’ without giving a specific age range, or a size guide to explain what age each of the sizes is aimed at. However, from the reviews, the medium size would apparently fit a four year old
It's not a face covering which I would object to. It's ubiquitous in some countries (Morocco for instance) and AFAIAC is no more controversial than a turban or a yarmulke. Would M&S get into trouble for selling Catholic first communion dresses?
Is the problem that it's associated with Islam?
