In yet another case of swimwear not being designed to actually swim in, a woman was left stained orange after squirting some body spray while wearing a bikini.
Harriet Wright, 20, bought a £40 La Vida Loca orange bikini from OhPolly to wear on holiday in Ibiza.
She bought the set from the swimwear section of the site but kept out of the pool.
But even without any major contact with water, Harriet says the bikini still left her body and bedsheets covered in orange dye.
She thinks this is because she applied a squirt of body spray while wearing the bikini.
Harriet needed two showers to completely remove the dye from her body. When she contacted OhPolly to complain, she was told the bikini shouldnt get wet and was for servin looks by the pool only.
Harriet shared her experience online to warn other customers that even the tiniest bit of liquid might make fast fashion swimsuits transfer their colour.
I get so many messages about this bikini, Harriet wrote alongside photos. Its from OhPolly but its one of them for poolside only which is
ridiculous since its listed in the swim section.
I did not get in the pool with this bikini, water contact was TINY and this is the colour transfer!
The bikini itself is stunning but I wish Id known it literally cannot come in to contact with any water at all or else the colour will run and stain everything including my skin!
Love the bikini but spending £40 to barely be able to wear it is not ideal.
People responded to the tweet, calling the bikini a rip off.
Harriet said OhPolly offered to replace the bikini for free, but she thinks the whole concept of a swimsuit that cant get wet is ridiculous.
She said: I completely understand that they cater largely for influencers, but what use is a bikini to most of us that literally cant come in to any contact with water?
Also, why would it be listed under the swim section, when you absolutely could not do any swimming in those bikinis?
To be honest, Ive been pretty dissatisfied with them as a whole recently anyway. I will definitely think twice before ordering from there from Read More – Source
