A Suit for Every “Body,” Including Those That Can’t Exist

If something looks a little amiss about the model in the advertisement above—if her head looks a bit too big for her body, her torso a bit too compact to be natural, her arms, dear God her arms, doing things arms don’t do—all can be explained: Bikini Bay on Queen Street West apparently offers its models, like its swimsuits, in “mix & match.”
Esteemed former Torontoist contributor Karen Whaley discovered the above ad, writing on her blog: “I found an ad that qualifies as a photoshop disaster and has unnecessary quotation marks!” Actually, for this one, having “Body” in quotation marks seems decidedly necessary.
