American Apparel's Use of Nudity Makes Perfect Sense

Not the kind of analogy we ever thought we'd make but every day American Apparel is becoming more and more like GoDaddy. And visa versa. Not just in the sense both use sex to sell, rather, they both obsessively push the same boundaries over and over again.

For over half a decade GoDaddy has been mocking America's puritanical views regarding nudity. And American Apparel has been pushing the jail bait button for just as long. But more recently the fashion label has been focusing more on the use of blunt nudity to sell.

The most recent campaign from American Apparel has a model pimping the brand's Nylon Tricot Suspender Swimsuit, a swimsuit barely capable of concealing the upper regions of a woman's body. Which, of course, is why this campaign - full of full on toplessness - makes perfect sense. After all, a woman should know what's she's buying and if the upper part of her suit isn't big enough to cover her breasts she ought to know that going in.

Which, we guess, is to say this campaign from American Apparel is spot on.
