Speedos Are Now Globally Approved?
Other -- ahem -- revealing findings in the survey include the statistic that one quarter of beach-going respondents are comfortable with topless beaches (in France, that number skyrocketed to 73 percent of respondents) and 54 percent of Americans cited "having wallet/possessions stolen" as their biggest concern at the beach (even over shark attacks). For more findings, check out Expedia's Flip Flop Report.
Much to our surprise (and some peoples' disgust), it revealed that wearing a Speedo gets two thumbs up from most of the world. That's right, Speedos are now globally-approved. 65% of beachgoers worldwide reported finding that Speedo-style bathing suits are "acceptable." This percentage was highest in France, where 9 out of 10 respondents (91%) were A-Ok with Speedos. U.S. beachgoers, however, were split at 52%.
