    Would you wear it? I saw a nice patterned purple one the other day, but I don't know! I'm so used to bikinis, however I'm getting bored. :\

    Some can be even more revealing than bikinis. I probably wouldn't wear one-I might scare people

    It'd have to be a tasteful one but yeah I'd wear it - not sure what for though - not swimming because there may be a slip-and-slide factor in there, and not for sunbathing because of the lines! Hmm, what actually could you wear it for? :confused:

    Awful. Awful. Awful. Awful to a factor of a billion and twelve.

    Completely impractical (you can't tan in it, you can't swim in it, what the hell can you do in it other than hang around looking a cheap slut?) - anyone with decently-sized non-fake breasts (see the first model on the page for an example of FAKE ones) would fall out of that thing in no time.

    It's hilarious that the site says "The top usually has deep plunging necks that go all the way down to your belly button. Your cleavage will be out of this world!" and "Perfect for Hour Glass and Apple shaped bodies.". Uh, no. Cleavage requires some degree of support, or you'll just get sag-lines instead - not sexy. And anyone with an 'hour glass' figure will be in a one-piece or a bikini so they have proper support and their breasts don't flop around with every movement! As for 'apple' figures, if your largest part is your stomach, wearing this monstrosity will make you look like a hippopotamus in a circus harness. (Note that I'm not insulting those of curvy/large figures, being in possession of one of those myself, but laughing at the idea that this tiny thing is supposed to be flattering to us!)

    Edit: Oh, okay, they define 'apple' as what I'd call a 'carrot'. Odd.

    omg that white one is gorgeous!!!!
    and yes it does help that the model wearing it is some non-existant barbie doll... so it kind of gives us unrealistic expectations as to what it will actually look like on... but still... i like

    Hel i can see where your coming from with your post... but isnt it a little unfair to say that anyone who wears one will look like a "cheap slut"... theyre pretty strong words.

    I didn't exactly say anyone wearing one will look like a cheap slut, I said that they won't be able to do anything but hanging around looking like one. A subtle distinction, I know... what I mean is, since it has no practical use (swimming/tanning) then all you'll be able to do is sit/lie around, and thus you will likely look like you're gagging for it. I know it's more and more acceptable to wear revealing things for the beach, but the fact that it's so impractical and unsupportive will make it look like you're wearing it for the sake of showing off as much skin as you can (but not in a tanning kind of way, since it would give you some freaky tan lines) and so... yeah. Slutty. I may still have been a bit harsh, but hey, I'll change my mind if you show me someone wearing one who doesn't look like a porn star or slut.

    you could wear it to sunbathe in... wearing a high SPF factor stops you tanning quickly, and alternating bathing suits each day prevents tan lines

    but yeah, most of us dont have the figure for that thing lol

    Hmm, good point. I wouldn't really know - I never try to tan.

    Rather, that thing isn't designed for people with the figures most of us have. The defiency lies in the item, not us.

    That's horrible. If you had any boobs, they'd have no support in the thing, and if they were small enough not to need it, the fabric would just skim over and make you look very flat chested. Not to mention how trashy the thing is!

    Oh I couldn't agree more with you Sarah *finds a new friend*

    Yeah you should wear one, you'd look hot :p:

    Seriously just that whenever I open up a magazine over here, all I see is swimsuits now so was just going through which ones I haven't worn before.

    See I'm unadventurious! I need to get in touch with my inner fashion queen.
