Purchasing a swimsuit is something that most women stress about at some point in their lives. It doesn’t help that every magazine on stands at this time of year has a headline that screams something containing the words “BIKINI BODY!!!!!!” What does that mean anyway? For the curvaceous among us, it can be a truly frustrating experience as cute options for the zaftig body type can be limited.

American Apparel‘s new swimwear ads are here and—OMG, are those nipples?! Yes, the gratuitously provocative ad department at American Apparel has brought us a topless model for spring. Let’s all pretend we’re freethinking Europeans and not have a cow about this, OK? Personally, I could care less about headlights in advertising, but the first thing I look for when buying a bathing suit is how am I not going to flash everyone. [Fashionista] Keep reading »
