The Towelkini summer outfit has come to solve all your sandy struggles while at the beach as it is part towel and part swimsuit. But, people have mixed reactions about the design.
While at the beach, there's nothing worse than getting out of the sea dripping wet, just to pick up your only towel and get sand all over yourself and anyone in the vicinity. Thanks to the Towelkini, you don't have to worry about the issue.
Summer is coming! It's time to pull out your long-stored swimsuit from your closet or buy a new outfit.
We have a perfect summer experience if you must carry some of the necessary items to the beach. They include a towel, a swimsuit, refreshing drinks, sunscreen, and a t-shirt.
This year you don't need to include both the towel and swimsuit when preparing for your summer. You only need the Towelkini, and it has come to save space in your beach bag.
Ara MacManus designed this warm-weather accessory. She's a conceptual designer based in New York, and the outfit was launched in July 2018.
The Towelkini product description reads:
"Towelkini by Aria McManus melds the two essentials for all things beach, no need to carry a cumbersome towel and an easy to lose swimsuit - here they come as one, materialized as ideal."
With a Towelkini, you can lay down by the pool, beach and have the comfort of a towel under your head.
The outfit will leave your legs exposed to the sun, making it hot-weather-friendly.
However, keep in mind that the outfit is backless, meaning that the butt area is open. So, you'll need to wear some bottoms.
It'd appear that it's more practical to wear the outfit as a post-swim cover-up, as MacManus demonstrates on her Instagram. But would you? That's up to you to decide.
The Towelkini costs $199 (£156.45) on the Special Special website, and you can choose from a variety of colors, including hot pink and bright yellow.
Once the out was released, people have been having mixed reactions concerning the garment. Some seem happy with this summer idea, while others are confused by its impracticality.
Putting parodies and skepticism aside, MacManus shared a post on Instagram to convince the critics that the garment has sold out in online stores despite their criticisms.
MacManus also posted a photo of sunbathers wearing the outfit as a cover-up alongside some headlines with dubious reviews.
