Well, you’re not going to be doing a whole lot of swimming in THIS, are you? Which makes us think that either:
a) They’re lying about the “swimsuit” bit and it’s actually just a bodysuit. Which actually brings up problems all of its own, because if you wore it under trousers or a skirt, you wouldn’t actually see the detail on the bottom part. This makes us worry that it’s supposed to be worn Lady Gaga style, with nothing over the top.
b) It IS a swimsuit, but it’s just for posing in. We’ve yet to see a “just for posing in” swimsuit that we didn’t consider a crime of fashion, so this concerns us too.
Either way, we’re not going to be paying £49.99 for it, but if you want to, you can pick it up at River Island.
