We're Going To Guess This 'Maxi Pad' Pool Float Wasn't Designed By A Woman

You had one job.

When it comes to designing a pool float, there are plenty of things to consider. Is it easy to get on? Can it hold a drink? How will it look on Instagram?

But one of the things that should also be pondered: does it look like a giant sanitary napkin?

Apparently that was not the case for the creators of the Pasadena Pool Float, a picture of which was posted on Reddit a few days ago to immediate hilarity.


"It gives me the confidence I need to float in the pool," wrote the user.

Twitter picked up on it and quickly decided on the problem: there were likely no women consulted in the creation of this pad pool toy.

So there is the possibility that the backlash could really work in this company's favour — we can picture plenty of people grabbing these for a girls' getaway weekend or simply just taking ownership of the fact that menstrual products shouldn't be relegated to back corners of bathroom cabinets. Lie on them in the pool instead, dammit!

A girl can only dream.
