Marks & Spencer launches supersize uniforms for obese schoolkids
Jul 26 2010
A SUPERSIZE schoolwear range has been launched by Marks & Spencer - with kids' trousers and skirts available in a massive 41 inch waist.
The plus size uniforms - aimed at children aged between four and 16 - also include blazers for girls reaching an adult size 18.
And it caters for four-yearold new-starts with waistlines of up to 23in - a size usually worn by eight-year-olds.
At the moment the items are only available online, after the firm reported demand from parents.
Tam Fry, of the National Obesity Forum, said: "It is a shocking indictment of the scale of obesity affecting young people."
Tory health spokesman Murdo Fraser added: "It's appalling that Marks & Spencer has had to introduce super-sized schoolwear."
