All women have the right to wear a bathing suit, so you better prepare to see them look like palm hearts on the beach. Dana Duggan, a bath wear designer from Massachusetts, believes actress and comedian Amy Schumer should not have worn this garment. Her opinion has aroused the ire of numerous women who have spoken against Duggan’s offensive comment on Amy Schumer’s white bathing suit published on InStyle’s Instagram account.

Instyle posted a cover photo featuring Schumer wearing a Ralph Lauren one-piece bathing suit.

“Come on, man!” writes Duggan (from the account of her swimsuit brand-South Shore Swimwear) in the comments section. “You could not find anyone better for this cover? Not everyone should wear a bathing suit.”

Several followers of the magazine soon answered his comment. One of them reminds Duggan that “bathing suits are not only for women who wear size 34” and that Schumer “is a real woman with a real body,” applauding @instylemagazine for taking it on the cover. Another user writes that they feel sorry for all the people who do not like the cover and just like “all those people who judge and humiliate others for their physical appearances.”

Duggan did not retreat from her unpopular commentary and instead welcomed the notion of “freedom of expression.”

Duggan opened her swimsuit store in the late 1990s, according to an article in the Patriot Ledger. According to her Facebook page, she only attends by appointment, although she does not accept reservations right now. In 2015, the designer shared her recommendations for “women with different body types” in an article in Boston Magazine.

The swimsuit designer not only responded offensively to the cover image of a woman with a size 40-42 like Amy Schumer wearing a swimsuit, but since the Huffington Post was the first in line to report her comments, Duggan attacked the publication, saying, “The Huffington Post is the biggest piece of crap publication out there.”

“I value freedom of the press. It’s called freedom of expression,” she said.

“I can have my opinion and you can have yours. I’m sick of the media and the publications that try to defend the fat. It is not healthy and it is not nice. What problem is there with the covers in which healthy models appear and In shape?” she added.

“I’m not anti-inclusivity or anti-plus size. All I said was not everyone should be in a swimsuit on the cover of a magazine. I don’t think it was an attractive photo,” Duggan remarked.
