Underwear ban!

A couple of years ago, there was the opening of a beach in Caddebostan, on the asian side of Istanbul. Everyone was so happy; it was a great way to refresh yourself during the very hot summer days that we were experiencing. The first images we got through the news of the beach and the swimmers were images of men bathing in their big white underwear and women bathing with long pants “salvar”. These images were the subject of much criticism. The main satirical cartoon artists used it for weeks in their magazines, it was hilarious.
It has been announced last year that those who bathe with such inappropriate swimwear will be fined 100YTL immediately. Today it was announced that other cities have started to adopt the same attitude towards citizens who do not wear the appropriate gear to go in the sea.
