I donned my Mankini and strode onto the golden sands of South Shields(!!) Not too many Germans about, but it still got me a lot of attention - teenage girls couldn't stop giggling and quite a few shouted out 'Borat!' However, I wasn't bothered - I was sponsored to wear it and raised money for a good cause.
It's now been consigned to the 'Garments worn once, but never again' bin: but that's more a reflection of my innate shyness than any statement on the quality of this garment. Wearing it was a lot of fun, but you've got to have a lot of balls (it helps!) and/or a thick hide to do so, otherwise you could feel REALLY self conscious. I can see groups of lads on holiday all wearing one and having a good laugh with it - there's always safety in numbers!
As I only wore it once I can't really comment on the durability, but it supported me OK (and there's a lot to support - I wish!!), even though I get the feeling it may be prone to 'saggage'. Of course, it looks absolutely ridiculous - but that's the whole point.
Overall, recommended for those with a larger than life sense of humour.
