Australia's Commonwealth Games swimwear slammed for 'emphasising crotch'

Australia's swimsuits for the Commonwealth Games cause controversy for 'drawing attention' to the crotch.

The swimwear worn by the Australian Commonwealth Games team has been criticised for 'emphasising' the crotch area just a matter of weeks before the event gets underway in Glasgow.

The attire, which has been manufactured by Speedo, features designs that include kangaroo prints, emus and maps of Australia in gold and green.

Brisbane stylist Di Cant has hit out at the designs, particularly of the green and black suits, by claiming that people are drawn to the crotch area due to where the colours meet.

"My main issue is with the green and black suits and the emphasis on the crotch," The Independent quotes Cant as saying. "The shaping in the crotch and with the black leg, something is not quite flattering. It is drawing the eye to the wrong place, rather than to the athletic body and the overall look."

The Games get underway on July 23 with the opening ceremony at Celtic Park.
