  • Some swimsuits can be complicated to put on, but once they're in place can look great. Unfortunately for Lyndsey from Glasgow she wasn't too happy with hers.

    The 20-year-old was baffled to discover that her one-piece swimsuit was a lot more revealing than she’d initially realised.

    Lyndsey’s message to swimwear brand Pear Swimwear went viral on Twitter, after she asked the company: ‘Is it meant to stretch like that? This is what it was like. It was so bad and embarrassing.’

    In the pictures, Lyndsey is shown wearing the swimsuit that exposes way more of her lower body than she would’ve liked, causing her embarrassment. She also claimed it was ‘fine at first’, and she wasn’t sure what had gone wrong.

    The retailer responded to Lyndsey’s question, and explained why the swimsuit didn’t look right. A spokesperson told her: ‘I’ve had a look at the picture you have sent and believe you are wearing it upside down.

    ‘The thinnest part of the swimsuit will be the strap which sits across your shoulder. I hope this helps.’

    It turns out Lyndsey had been wearing the swimming costume correctly to begin with, but after a few drinks and a trip to the toilet, she wasn’t able to put it back on the right way around. As a result, she’d put the shoulder strap where the bottom should be.

    Lyndsey’s friend also shared a photo of Lyndsey wearing the swimsuit properly, before all the drinks had kicked in.

    At least Lyndsey saw the funny side, taking to Twitter to share her experience and reveal she was kicked out of Ibiza’s Ocean Club for being ‘a lightweight’, and not for accidentally exposing herself.

    She also said she was ‘howling’ at the thought of wanting a refund from Pear Swimwear, considering the mishap was entirely her fault.

    Hopefully she enjoyed the rest of her holiday despite the embarrassing moment!
