Victoria Hervey can say whatever she wants in order to make herself feel better, but she got swindled into overpaying for the equivalent of a pair of overalls in swimsuit form. Personally, I see nothing wrong with that, but the fashion world, a world in which Victoria has been deeply immersed, tends to stick its nose up at anything that is overall related.
I spent a lot of time growing up around overalls, so they are easy for me to spot, and those are definitely just modified overalls. You can see the telltale straps going over each shoulder which are the only things keeping her bikini bottoms from being pulled off when she pulls herself out of the water. It is kind of ingenious actually. There have been many times in my life that having over-the-shoulder straps would have been handy. It is amazing how much water can still get trapped in that netted underwear that comes sewn into swim trunks.
I honestly don’t mind that high-fashion companies are starting to mimic workwear brands. I kind of like it. Maybe that will even save brands like Carhart and Dickies from being ruined by people who only want to look like they work for a living, people like me.
