Just what every woman has been waiting for! The world’s first compostable bikini:

Women hate swimsuit shopping, am I right? And we all know why: Because swimsuits do not disintegrate when buried underground for 180 days. Luckily, designer Linda Loudermilk has come out with the world's first line of compostable swimwear . Yes, they're hideously unflattering (warning: image mildly NSFW, definitely NSFA where A is aesthetic sense). But they achieve the thing women really care about in a swimsuit: disposability. Plus, they look like garbage bags, so their compostability is never far from your mind -- because when people look at you in a bikini, you want their first thought to be about decomposition. Loudermilk suggests that you give the disposable suits to your guests, something like the paper thong at a tanning salon. So in addition to disappearing when buried, they also make your guests disappear!
