I saw this suit, and really wondered how many women would buy it with that awful crotch! If it looks like that on a thin model, geez, what's it gonna do on my body!

OH. MY. GOSH.

I simply cannot thank you enough for posting this pic.

The reality behind the illusion of perfection!

I needed to see that!

It makes me feel smug that I can do better, and relieved that even stick thin models have calves which cause hang ups.

Great post.

I feel better about my pants sewing ability now. I can do better than that and I don't even think I am good at sewing pants.

Wow, that crotch is terrible! I looked at the back view and its just as bad. I wouldn't ever wear pants that bad, much less put them in an ad. Wow, is all I have to say.

I dread to think what the pants would cost if they made them fit properly?
Did anyone actually look at these before posting the image?

OP thanks for the encouragement :)
