Disney Princess Bathing Suit Manufacturing Error Left a Woman Was ‘Scarred for Life’
Bathing suits featuring the swimming Disney Princess, Ariel, are a perennial favorite among little girls. She IS a mermaid, after all. So you can imagine a womanâ€™s surprise when she encountered a swimsuit with Ariel on it that wasnâ€™t exactly child-appropriate.
Chelsee Mosson, a 22-year-old sports development and coaching student, was shopping at UK chain Asda in preparation for an upcoming trip to Greece when a suit in the childrenâ€™s section caught her eye.
â€œI couldnâ€™t believe my eyes,â€ she said in a since-deleted tweet. â€œI thought, â€˜that isnâ€™t right.â€™â€
A manufacturing error had left the princess without her trademark shell bra. LOL forever.
The Asda website shows what the suit should look like, and it’s definitely more kid-friendly.
Mosson didnâ€™t see the humor in what was clearly an unintentional mistake.
â€œTo see Ariel without her trademark shell bra has scarred me for life and ruined a childhood classic,â€ she told the Daily Mail. â€œShe’s a much-loved Disney character from a children’s film. She should definitely not be in the buff, that’s for sure. I grew up watching this film and it’s certainly not how I remember her looking. It’s outrageous.â€
I mean, itâ€™s not an ideal situation, but scarred for life? Over cartoon boobs? Bless her heart.
Asda has removed the suit from its clothing section, George at Asda, and issued a statement. “We’re sorry for the printing error on the Little Mermaid swimsuit, which was caused during the production process. It only affected a very small number of the swimsuits which were available from George, but we’d like to reassure our customers that we have removed all stock from sale and will ensure this doesn’t happen again.”
We hope Ms. Mosson recovers from her horror in time for her holiday in Greece.
