The 25 Ugliest Swimsuits Of Summer 2013


It’s summer, y’all! And you know what that means: time to head down to the beach to make giant penises out of sand, show your boobs to children, play velcro scatch, and engage in whatever other fun beach activities your particular group of friends may enjoy. But first, you need to buy a swimsuit, and that’s where the tricky part comes in, because some swimsuits are really, really ugly. How ugly? Well, look at these 25 I just found. None of them seem like they are serious about being swimsuits for humans to wear while they swim in the water, and yet, they are totally not joking. Let’s laugh about them together.

      I think I saw #25 on a blog last summer – paired with the cover of The Stranger. I actually think it’s kind of pretty, but how the hell are you supposed to get it on?

      i really don’t see anything wrong with some of these, it is clear that there is a certain style of bathing suit that just isn’t for you. Really wouldn’t declare these the “ugliest”

      Hmm..I actually really like 13. But what is happeing with 15? I am choking just looking at it!

        If you register your account with disqus you get an edit button and I seriously love it a little too much.

      Oh god, even the model looks bad in 22.
      You know it’s bad when 110lb women who are paid to look hot are looking funky

      Yeah Anya, I totally agree. Some of these are rad (2, 3, 8, 9, 11 & 26– yep, I get the mesh hangups though). Maybe they’re not meant to be worn by most people or IRL period, but they at lease make for some cool shoots. I LOVE The Gloss, but this is why I usually don’t read the style related posts. They tend to be a little sartorially narrow-minded and a bit yawn. You hate Nasty-Gal-esque edge, just say it (but ya know there IS a reason it’s one of the fastest growing e-commerce sites EVER). Again, I’m obsessed with The Gloss, so I think that’s mainly why I’m always so disappointed when I read the original style content. Not tryna troll or anything.

      unsightly lumps in your chest called “breasts.”


      Also, the fact that #2 is sold out makes me nervous about going to the beach.

      Laughed so hard I almost peed my pants and my cat had to run and hide under the bed.

      7-10-11-18-20, are not that bad. Sadly there are women that would wear the slutsuits (sorry I meant swimsuits). What are you doing? wow factor? You’ll get treated like you dress. We will lie then we’ll fly…”the kind you don’t take home to mother” Please get a clue

      I actually find some of these very unique and beautiful, and i would totally wear 25!
