The fashion world has had a new craze in the last few years with new designs popping up around the world.
While many of the designs have been well received, some have been met with backlash and even some have even sparked outrage.
A few years ago, designer and swimwear blogger Lane Bryant shared a series of swimwear designs with the website Glamour that was so popular, she was forced to take down the designs.
“My love for swimming has never been more evident,” she wrote in the post.
“The water is full of meaning and I love the moment when I feel like the world has been taken away from me.”

The beauty of Lane Bryant’s designs was that they were bold, sophisticated and full of colour.
“They were designed to be fun and feminine,” she told Glamor.
“When you wear a swimwear dress, you are wearing a swimsuit, a piece of clothing that is designed to make you feel good and to be beautiful.”
This is where you want to take your clothes and make them into something that you want, that you will wear forever.
“Her designs were also highly effective in creating a sense of comfort for the wearer.”
You can feel the clothes as you walk, or if you’re sitting down and you don’t feel like you can move or you feel like it’s going to take a bit of time to get up again,” she said.”
So you are able to feel that there is a lot of comfort in the clothes.
“Lane Bryant’s post was widely shared on social media and she had to take it down after some negative feedback.”
I’ve been told by a lot people I’ve met over the years that I’ve created a bad image of women,” she shared.”
That’s really hurtful.
I really respect women who don’t accept that the world is not fair.
“It was at this time that Lane Bryant was inspired to create her own line of swimsuits.
The brand’s products are designed to give you a comfortable fit, while still being stylish.”
We wanted to create something that was a little more sophisticated, more wearable, and we wanted to bring a little bit more luxury to our products,” Lane Bryant told Glimour.”
Our goal was to create an outfit that you’d want to wear forever, and that you were going to wear every day.
“In the last year and a half, our clothes have become something of a sensation and it’s just a pleasure to see it so much.”
It’s just great that it’s a fashion trend and people love it.

Everyday swimwear has become so fashionable.
I’m a huge fan of the idea of comfort.
So when I started Lane Bryant, I felt I had to make my own and create something unique.
“Read our interview with Lane Bryant here.
Lane’s line of products was inspired by the idea that “everyone deserves a comfortable day, every day”, but Lane Bryant has also had a few critics.”
People have a very negative reaction when they see the clothes that I make and that I do,” she says.”
But I don’t get a lot in the way of backlash.
I’ve received tons of messages on social networks and I just want to make sure people are happy and that people are comfortable.

When we first interviewed Lane Bryant she said she had “no clue” where her inspiration came from.
But now, she’s had enough.”
A lot of people are going to be saying, ‘Oh, I have a bad taste in my mouth’, and I think it’s important to be aware of it,” she explained.”
And I know that if I do something that’s not right, people are gonna have a lot to say about it.
“What’s really important to me is that I feel confident in the products and that they work for me.”
