We’re sorry. We’re really, really sorry. We know that this is terrible. And you’ll probably be doing this in a few minutes.

But this was just too weird not to share. We’re still not sure how (or why) these supposed bathing suits came into existence. We’re also not sure how they’ve managed to actually stay on. Although, Mark Shrayber from Jezebel seems to think it works via “a clever system of ropes and pulleys” that are inserted in a place we’d rather not think about.

According to Cosmopolitan UK, the man in the red, uh, thing is Bobby Norris; a cast member of The Only Way Is Essex (or TOWIE) while the one in the white is Harry Derbidge. Every year the show films special episodes in the Spanish coastal town of Marbella which is where Bobby decided to whip out (sorry) his barely there mankini for all the world to enjoy.

This kind of makes you grateful for Speedos, doesn’t it? In this case, it’s the lesser (or is it more?) of two evils. Would you rather see a man in a Speedo that’s maybe a size too small and a bit too tight in THAT area? Or wake up from your poolside nap to a half mankini that basically looks like a permanent wedgie? Hhmm?

And like our lovely intern, Laura, said “You gotta admit, it takes balls to wear this. Literally. Without balls, it’d probably fall right off.”

If you still can’t get over the awfulness, here’s another picture for you to gawk at.
