This skirt is going viral for looking like every girl's worst nightmare

Is that… a STAIN?

EVERY WOMAN KNOWS that periods are, at the best of times, unpredictable affairs. So the picture below represents a very real and present threat.

An image of a skirt from a JC Penney catalogue was posted to Reddit’s Crappy Design subreddit earlier this week with the caption:

Girls across the world were immediately struck by horrific flashbacks, though some argued that it would be way worse if it was on the back. Thank god for small mercies.

The picture on the JC Penney website makes the pattern on the skirt look a bit more like a flower (albeit a drippy, messy-looking one), but who wants to take that chance?

No. We don’t want to take that chance.
