This weird swimsuit is yet another impossible body standard for women
The summer is upon us, people are heading to the beach and might reasonably be looking for the right swimsuit – or ‘lying on the sand reading a book’ suit, if that’s their thing.
Alanna Okun, author and deputy editor of Vox consumer supplement, The Goods, has found one that would certainly make the wearer stand out from the crowd.

Alanna wasn’t the only person to be unconvinced by the design. The reviews are in – and they’re not great.

Do I put it over the left flap, or the right? Because it ain’t covering both. https://t.co/h3fx6y5veC

These replies are so discouraging. Everyone claims to support women/be body positive until it’s about my 11 foot vulva, 4 inch stomach & award winning bazongos. Guess you’d all be devastated to know that the backside is a single industrial wire (supports 3,000+ lbs) (for my ass) https://t.co/2AQuyX6Zgt

A few years ago, I switched to board shorts and a rash guard for the beach. It helped prevent sunburns and anxiety-fears of trying to wear whatever this is. https://t.co/uUPf8DVt2g

If your eyebrows have only just lowered after seeing that – brace yourself.
‘This is the weirdest bathing suit I’ve ever seen’, I thought while Googling the description. And then came pic.twitter.com/Cm6qXICdvc
