I can't see it on the website. It must have been removed!

ILoveUsernames Tue 16-Jan-18 13:05:38

Horrible I'm not normally a complainer about stuff but this is a bit much

CheapSausagesAndSpam Tue 16-Jan-18 13:07:47

Here's Hangers site

www.hangerinc.co.uk/collections/latex-1/products/plain-bikini-bottom-red

All very fetish inspired

MsHarry Tue 16-Jan-18 13:10:23

YANBU that is not good.

bobstersmum Tue 16-Jan-18 13:11:39

Who would actually wear that anyway?

expatinscotland Tue 16-Jan-18 13:13:15

Fucking awful.

CremeFresh Tue 16-Jan-18 13:13:37

I'm not easily offended but this is awful- the name Hanger . What on earth are they thinking ?

DeleteOrDecay Tue 16-Jan-18 13:14:48

That's awful. The name, the image.

I hope this isn't triggering for anyone.

YADNBU

My friend hung himself when he was about the age of that model.

Horrible photo

dutysuite Tue 16-Jan-18 13:18:52

Horrible.

I thought sexual rather than suicide but either are not nice

Withhindsight Tue 16-Jan-18 13:20:40

What is the message if it's not - it's cool to hang yourself? Completely wrong as an adult I say F***0ff with your ridiculous adverts, as a curious and impressionable teen I may think it's a good idea to go out like this and risk getting it jammed in a door, yanked by others, the end result is the same, trauma to the neck if you wear it like this- imagine Miranda Hart wearing this instead of the dress in the taxi scene?

Basseting Tue 16-Jan-18 13:22:05

Horrible.
Inappropriate in both a suicide and fetish manner.
It needs taken down imo, and I am normally pretty tolerant.

If it's 'just a belt' then show it around her waist...

ThumbWitchesAbroad Tue 16-Jan-18 13:22:11

Christ almighty, that's bad.
Whether you take it as fetish style clothing, or whether your mind immediately goes to the suicide suggestion, there is nothing good in that image.

ASOS should be ashamed of themselves. Perhaps they were trying to take a leaf out of H&M's notebook by creating an advert of sufficient controversy to get them in the news for days?

YetAnotherSpartacus Tue 16-Jan-18 13:23:06

The model looks about 16, if that sad

That's appalling, I don't take offence easily but they should be ashamed of themselves for this.

MissTeri Tue 16-Jan-18 13:36:19

Lost a friend to suicide last year, they hanged themself, this definitely made me think of that as soon as I saw it without even seeing the name of it. Not cool, not edgy, just disturbing.

Judashascomeintosomemoney Tue 16-Jan-18 13:38:38

Even her pose is suspect
Exactly, I think that’s why it makes me feel it’s inappropriate for a largely teen audience on ASOS. I grew up with Punk so I’ve got no objection to buckles and chains, but this is deliberately designed to make her look submissive and sexualised.

Mycarsmellsoflavender Tue 16-Jan-18 13:40:41

Horrible.

CremeFresh Tue 16-Jan-18 13:46:49

My DD has Asos vouchers , I wish we could change them after seeing this.

practicallyperfectmummy Tue 16-Jan-18 13:55:02

Well done for tweeting then op and getting removed. It's an awful image I was shocked by it.

IrkThePurist Tue 16-Jan-18 13:56:54

Its called Hanger. Well done for flagging it OP.
