Wet ‘n’ Wild: Swimwear that Melts Away!

Adidas admits to an embarrassing design flaw.


When looking for your next swimmers you have to ask yourself what you will be comfortable in; a one piece, or does a bikini suit best? Perhaps what you really want is swimwear that falls apart when it comes into contact with water? If the latter is what you’re after, then hurry out to your nearest Adidas stockist. The Infinitex 3-Stripe range has been recalled recently because of a slight flaw in which parts of the swimmers fall off when they get wet. Oops!

Adidas began receiving complaints from customers after many experienced the three stripes that run along the side of the piece falling off after being put in water. If you are experiencing this, Adidas recommends returning the swimwear immediately for a full refund. You won’t need a receipt or proof of purchase. Adidas is most likely quite red-faced about the debacle and would like it amended as quickly and quietly as possible.
