I'm late this year for the annual swimsuit wrap up, but better late than never. However, I've got to tell you I am disappointed in this year's batch of designer swimsuits. Really disappointed. Swimsuits haven't been over the top, there have been no ridiculous embellishments, no poses with french poodles and feathers. They have been tame, in traditional shapes and fabrics, even wearable... and that's no fun at all.
(Though it does make my prospects for finally finding a pair of 50s style full-cut bottoms a smidge more realistic. Oh come on, with a halter? You know that would be HOT!)
However, there are always a few that need mentioning. Especially this disturbing trend...
Boys be warned! Vaginas equal DEATH! Oh, that winking boob might try to lure you in, but don't be fooled! Clearly any fraternization with said vaginas may result in serious injury, as indicated by the oh so helpful warning label and skull.
This trend was obviously started by Ed Hardy's Swimsuits Love Kills Slowly line that showed up last year and continues today, despite the numerous unreported abuses that I'm sure occurred. Men, don't be afraid to come forward. (How much more grief are you going to cause in the world, Ed Hardy?)
This one's a bikini! No, an applique project! No, a patriotic statement! I'm so confused! VAGINA!
That headband there? That headband speaks volumes!
But if you are going to chance the dangers and hook up anyway, try this one. She's got bandages.
