What little girl — or little gay — hasn’t dreamed of a life under the sea? A wise, vaguely racist rendering of a crustacean once advised that it’s not only wetter but in fact better down on the ocean floor. Now you too can get your Ariel on with mermaid bodysuits by Vancouver-based 3-Fins.

New Mermaid Bodysuits Make Life Under the Sea a Reality

Inspired by her daughters’ love of mermaids, Monika Nauman started designing the tails in January. Made of ¬†bathing suit material, the mer-suits¬†come in a variety of colors and feature a fin to make a real Splash.

But in order to slip and slide into one of Nauman’s creations you’ll have to (sea)shell out some $245 — not including shipping and handling.

As for swimming, Nauman claims her bodysuits actually make you a stronger swimmer, but from the looks of the video below, these mermaids are one flipper away from drowning. [Huff Po]

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester at fashionindie.com
