'All that succession and repetition of massed humanity... Those vile bodies...' - Evelyn Waugh

I usually try not to do "what the hell?" posts...mainly because one man's meat is another man's poison and...who am I to judge? Which was a great sentiment...until I came face to face with a picture of Antipodium's Vile body jumper. I can't decide if this is some kind of (very obscure) Evelyn Waugh tribute...or a reference to that fact that no-one is going to look good dressed in what is essentially a variation of a 1920's bathing suit with buttons on the nipples...either way I can't think of a more fitting name.Photobucket

    Yep, Vile really nails it. It kind of reminds me of movies named Jinxed or Doomed or the like. Generally they are.

    I don't know....I can picture it worn under something sheer as a sort of underpinning. Either that, or as a nautically-inspired wrestling outfit!

    VILE is really good. Much better than my usual 'preposterous!'
