This is such a nonstory.
And lo, a story about babies in bikinis made me comment on lb once more.
My comment was stupid and snarky and pointless, so this isn’t really a big deal.
Have they ever tried to stuff a wiggling baby or toddler into a one piece? Or, god forbid, to get them back out of it once the kid is sopping wet and needs a diaper change? Hoo lordy. I can’t watch the video since my computer is le suck, so I don’t know exactly what the piece is saying. But baby two-pieces have been around forever, and they’re quite convenient.
Now, I prefer the tankini or rash guard style ones since they have better sun protection. And I’ve definitely seen ads for baby bikinis where the kid is put into a weirdly sexualized pose, and that’s NOT cool. (Hell, I put a link to one of those in groupthink last summer, way to catch up Jez!) But chill out, people!
Total non-story, for the precise reasons nerdling describes, as well as being fucking idiotic. I had an ass kicking two piece (1978, Ladyblog) that was red terrycloth and with a theme of ladybugs. The pictures are awesome. I was fucking adorable. ShortAG was totally put into two-pieces, because getting a squirming wet bebeh out of a one-piece at the beach is among the biggest wastes of time you can subject yourself to as a parent.
Christ. Give a fuck about shit that matters, or is even remotely new.
Did I mention 1978? 1978.
Oh dear lord I think I had the same ladybug bikini! Probably wasn’t wearing it until 1979 since I was born in July of ‘78 and I don’t think my parents were quite dumb enough to put a newborn in the wading pool. Damn I wish I had any of my baby pictures here!
