`Skimpy` Wimbledon dresses recalled by Nike after players complain

Melbourne, June.24: Sportswear giant Nike has decided to withdraw its ‘Premier Slam’ dresses for the 2016 Wimbledon Championship after receiving increasing complaints from female players that their apparels were too revealing.

Nike has requested its sponsored players to bring their stock of the all-white outfits to Nike’s rented out space at the All England Club so that they can be altered before the first round matches get underway from Monday, news.com.au reported.

According to reports, players complained the dress was too revealing below the waist, with some commentators labeling it as ‘ skimpy’.

At least 20 female players were reportedly given the faulty dress for the All England Club this year, including Canadian star Eugenie Bouchard and Australian Open semi-finalist Johanna Konta.

However, the All England Club had approved the dress saying it did comply with Wimbledon’s strict all-white dress code.
