This Insane $6 Bathing Suit From Amazon Actually Looks Good On Everyone

The Holy Grail of cut-out monokinis.

"Bathing suit from Amazon" are four words I never thought I'd use in a sentence together.

And "cute $6 bathing suit from Amazon" sounds like a straight-up lie.

But this suit, from what appears to be a mysterious Amazon retailer with several different names, is a real thing that lots of people are buying.

With over 700 reviews, most of them positive, this suit might be the Holy Grail of cut-out monokinis.

And best of all, tons of reviewers have uploaded pics to show what the suit looks like IRL.

Laverne Cox, actress, trans activist, and Instagram Queen, also just posted pictures of herself in what looks to be the same exact suit.

There's not much info about the merchant, Wenseny, available on the site.

They sell lots of other printed items and suits, but this "strappy bikini" has the most reviews by far.

Packages are sent from China and take a few days to a few weeks to arrive. And while they don't take returns, many people felt like the $6 price tag was worth the risk (including yours truly).

The review section in this case serves as a constantly updated "size guide" when reviewers post their pics along with their measurements and dress sizes.

The biggest criticism of the suit itself is that the top is sometimes too small.

But customers also discovered the top portion comes out and can be replaced with another top.

I'd say that's $6 well spent.
