An Australian mom of two and social media star is causing outrage after posting a photoshoot of herself in a barely-there tiny bikini at the beach.
Without a doubt, Tammy Hembrow is a controversial figure when it comes to celebrities around the world. Since becoming famous through her reality television career, Hembrow has shared rather scandalous pictures of herself at the beach in her “naked bikini,” which was designed by the California brand Minimale Animale.
Hembrow, a mother and a social media influencer, chose to showcase her “nude” appearance on the internet via an Instagram post on Tuesday, and now she’s being accused of stirring the pot.
The Australian social media star, who likes to put it all out there for her audience, shared the scandalous bikini photos and was quickly met with a lot of support from her adoring fans. Unfortunately for her, critics also immediately hit back to accuse her of being too racy with her image.
The “naked bikini” left very little to the imagination. Because the thong disappears into Hembrow’s ample curves, viewers were left with an image of Hembrow as if there was nothing there. The minimalistic bikini is made up of a G-string bottom and a tiny triangle bikini top.
The influencer shared the images of herself on Instagram, including the following caption: “Tammy Hembrow x the Minimale Animale EUPHORIA launches tomorrow.”
Because this tiny naked bikini is her own design, she was excited to be able to share it with her 14.3 million followers on Instagram to influence them to purchase it.
Hembrow’s announcement came soon after some critics already called the daring bikini “unwearable” because it reveals too much of the female form.
One user asked: “So how much is this piece of floss??”
“Lmao w this pic u literally don’t even see the suit, all they’re selling is body,” one response read.
Another person wrote: “This whole thing is 189 Australian dollars wtff. No way waste of money doesn’t even look like anything.”
Because the design of the bikini requires “close contact” with the female body, it is not eligible for returns. That means you had better get your size right when you order it, or you’re out of luck.
Readers on Daily Mail also had a lot of comments to share:
“Save your money, if you are going to show that much of yourself, you might as well go to a nudist beach for free! Ms. Hembrow, your Narcissistic Personality Disorder is out of control. For the sake of your kids, get professional help!!!” one comment read.
“Apologies to Australia, I feel this entire ‘Hembrow Phenomenon’ was created by a mutant Kardashian gene that wind picked up in California and carried around the globe, somehow incubating in Australia. Profound apologies,” another read.
Another viewer compared Hembrow’s ridiculous “naked bikini” design to the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes, where the emperor parades around without any clothes on after he is tricked into thinking they’re made of the most luxurious fabric.
An American reader pointed out that “Women will never ever be respected or taken seriously by men when they dress half-naked.”
