We do enjoy a design fail.

Today we must thank Marks & Spencer for the joy, as theyre selling a pair of bikini pants that, well, make you look like youve had a bit of an accident. An accident of the period genre, to be clear.

The bikini bottoms in question are a lovely light pink, with a leaf design on one side. So far, so lovely.

But right on the crotch, theres a red patch. The patch emanates from the vagina area, spreading upwards and giving the distinct look of a period stain.

Because who doesnt want to hit the pool looking like they forgot their menstrual cup?

The product description reads: This sophisticated bikini bottom will have you ready for the poolside or beach in no time. Featuring a chic ombre print with a placement leaf design on it, theyll instantly make you feel like grabbing your beach towel, sunglasses and enjoying the sunshine.

M&S arent wrong there. We do indeed feel like grabbing a towel when theres a red stain on our pants – mostly to cover up our lower half, run to the bathroom, and sort ourselves out.

The design fail was brought to our attention over on Twitter, when Bex Renshaw tweeted: I think the M&S designer was having a bad day, not a look I want to go for this summer.

Us neither, Bex.

Now, to be clear, theres no shame in a period stain or in free-bleeding at large. Menstruation is perfectly natural and its silly to pretend it doesnt exist.

But we cant help but think the M&S design team didnt quite think this one through.

Or perhaps theyre advocating to free the period and free-bleed on the beach this summer.
