Surf Is Up, Top Is Down 2

Denim’s been big this season.

Wait, let me rephrase that: the misuse of denim has been big this season.

Why yes. Yes, this is a denim bikini. Because denim is the second most practical swimsuit material, second only to velvet.

Of course, this isn’t actually denim – it’s fabric designed to look like denim. It’s essentially Swim-Jeggings. I half expect the description to read “Your bikini looks good, but let’s face it, it’s not that comfortable.”

I realize that it’s not like the bikini is made from a heavy-weight denim. It’s just a pattern, like a madras print or polka dots. But it’s not. It’s not just a pattern. It looks like denim. And I’m sorry, I just can’t get past that. It feels wrong. It feels wrong down to my bones.

Oddly enough, the bottoms don’t bother me nearly as much. I think it’s because I associate denim with the bottom half of the body, so it seems kind of reasonable. Not really reasonable, but at least it’s not the skimpiest Denim Tuxedo this side of a stripper pole.

Also, the top looks like it’s way too small, even on the model. One big wave and you don’t have to worry about tan lines.
