International Bikini Day or Bikini day is celebrated every year on 5th of July to celebrate the birth of invention of the swimsuit we now call bikinis. Made more famous by fashion lines such as Victoria Secret’s bikinis and women with gorgeous bodies, bikinis are a sight we are not new to seeing. So, on the birth of this bikini, let us slip the coins and look at mankinis instead. Yes, in case you think skimpy outfit are only for women, you are solely wrong and mankinis are proof. We must all remember Sasha Baren Cohen in this suitcase-pulling neon-green swimsuit which we wish we could still erase.

Much like the invention of bikinis by Louis Réard, behind the idea of the mankini is Jason Alper who is credited with the clothing we can do away with. So, on International bikini day let us look at some of the most horrifying mankinis ever designed after Apher gave birth to the idea of a man’s bikini:
When talking about mankinis, how can one forget Sacha Baron Cohen's Kazakhstani journalist persona, Borat in a flash of scanty, neon green mankini.
Well der, obviously the mankini! Works amazing for Borat 😉 pic.twitter.com/AJdaAlkHXS— Bobo Lamore (@bobo_lamore) July 1, 2019
One-kini mankini: A piece of clothing that no human of earth needs, this one-kini mankini that covers absolutely nothing and yet manage to stay up through a clever system of ropes and pulleys that must be inserted directly through the anal opening and attached with a clamp to the intestine closest to the rectum epitomes a fashion nightmare.
This is what Daffyd would be wearing if we made another series of 'Little Britain'... pic.twitter.com/C7EtNd22hN— David Walliams (@davidwalliams) June 12, 2014
Moobs mankini: These are not a piece of clothing, they are worse! In case you are not aware, “Moobs” are a portmanteau of “man boobs” and unlike the other mankinis, you just need one hairy chest and a sharp razor to wear..eerr make them.
Denim speedos: Call it man speedos or budgie smugglers, this denim-print ‘Jeado’ swimming briefs does nothing to better the mankini collection.
With Summmer on the bloom, which makinis will you dare try?
