The designer of the following pattern has this note on his Ravelry page.
There has been a lot of chatter on ravelry, as well as other locations, about the designs. The designs may not to everyone’s personal taste or desire, but there is enough interest to keep on offering these designs. Of the different caetgories, the two ‘sun suit’ (swimwear) categories receive the most criticism. To those who spoof at these designs - I will tell you these two categories sell more patterns than all the rest combined.
So to those people I would like to say - thank you for all the chatter - the more chatter - the more hits - the more hits, the more patterns I sell.
Okay, then it's with the designers blessing I say, "What did your grandmother ever do to you that you would do this to her?"
