It's true: One man's sexy is another man's nightmare fuel. Mostly though, aren't these swimsuits just impractical? Aerodynamic they ain't. However, if you're swimming in the ocean I suppose the front there could be used to collect baby smelt and other small bait fish. China never fails to confuse me.
I'm pretty sure that these aren't what they'll be using in the Beijing Olympics; the actual suits will look more like this, no doubt. These were from Beijing's swimwear fashion show on Thursday, which is all part of China's push to make Beijing one of the big players in the world fashion industry. Can China achieve world swimwear dominance, and oppress Tibet at the same time? That would be quite a feat.
