Designed by Aria McManus, a conceptual designer. Towel and swimsuit all in one. But according to the article on the Today Show's site, the back is totally exposed.

 

It's 100% cotton, only $199!

You're supposed to swim in that?

 

I don't understand this thing at all.

@KittyLouWhoToo When you Google it the pictures show it over a swimsuit. But that's because the model would be naked in the back if they didn't wear one. The designer says it's supposed to function as a swimsuit, which makes no sense at all. It works as a cover up so that you don't need a towel too at the beach. Someone is willing to spend $200 on that?

 

My favorite picture is the guy looking out the door..

Expensive and makes no sense.  I am sure that some celebrity will wear one and be in the tabloids, but a wet towel as a bathing suit just will not work.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!
