The Swedish clothing brand Kapp-Ahl says the bikini it manufactures is not responsible for causing burns under the breasts of a customer in Skåne.

TV4 Malmö reported earlier this week that the woman and her doctor had suspected the metal wiring of the bikini top had resulted in what she said were severe burns on her chest.

Kapp-Ahl submitted the garment to an independent institute for testing, reports news agency TT, but the test showed no connection between the wire and the burns.

The garment contains several chemicals, including the UV filter oxybenzone, which can apparently cause a reaction that resembles a burn.
