A new model of bikini will feature a built-in alarm to warn wearers to get the hell out of the sun.
The American Cancer Society advises that the best way to lower the risk of skin cancer, the most common form of the disease in people, is to avoid too much exposure to the sun and other sources of ultraviolet light. As a result, Canadian company Solestrom has come up with a new bikini that goes on sale next month with a UV meter built into its belt and an alarm that beeps to tell wearers when to head to the shade.
"There's so much concern about sun exposure and skin cancer that we saw the demand and designed something to be safe for the wearer," Solestrom spokeswoman Emily Garassa said.
The catch? The bikini costs $190! Yikes! I think I’d rather die of skin cancer!
