A popular fashion brand's bikni comes with the following warning on the label: "for poolside posing only"... So, underwear?
This bikini isn’t bathing suit-able.
A 22-year-old woman from Swansea in Wales was appalled when her new teal swimsuit from Pretty Little Thing bled blue dye when submerged in water.
“I wore it to the spa at my gym [and] I had a shower in it before entering the sauna and noticed the dye running down my legs, luckily I was the only one in there,” Alisha (aka @Princrastinate on Twitter) tells BuzzFeed. “I was stained blue and it destroyed my towel.”
Alisha reached out to the company, only to be told: “on the website it does say that the set shouldn’t be worn in water.” The customer service rep also pointed out that this bikini’s official designation is “for poolside posing only.”
This unsatisfied customer promptly issued a social media alert.
