why the price of a bikini is more expensive than my swiming trunk?

Cheap swimming trunks?

He is probably hoping they will disintegrate so he can provide some cheap entertainment on the beach.

I suggest that girls only buy half a set and save themselves some hard earned cash. Sure, they may have to go to the beach topless, but it's all in the name of fiscal responsibility, and for that I respect them

But what if they're fiscally impaired?

I don't get that. I would have thought that womens' clothing prices were based more around supply and demand. But then again, I haven't bought too many dresses lately....erm.....well none I'm gonna admit to

You only have to look at shoes to understand. Some women's shoes are just a piece of cardboard/synthetic sole and a couple of flimsy straps, yet can be priced in the hundreds of dollars. No man would pay that! Another example - shirts. My wife would think nothing of paying $100 for a flimsy blouse; I would not pay $100 for the last shirt in the world!

Oh! And what's with this year's ridiculous women's styles? For the first time in my life, I tried on clothes and had no idea what they were supposed to look like on me. Those tent-shaped shirts and dresses look great on a size 0, but put them on anything bigger and you look like a Christmas tree sprouting a head. I tried on 20 different things and had to keep asking "is it supposed to look like I have a crated in my chest? is this dress supposed to make my ass 10 times bigger?". But mosey on over to the men's section and everything is the same old classy stuff with a nice modern twist.

How come we women have to keep folding ourselves into these ridiculous styles? Oh - and paying 10X more than men for them? Hmpf!

Because the majority of women continue to do so

Ah yes the "pregnant" look, can't wait for that to be over. I would like to be actually pregnant when I wear those...unless I find a man who would like me wearing those dresses even if my ass would appear to be as big as Japan. On the bright side, I would be easier to find as one could just look for my ass on Google Earth.
