Image of JCPenney Skirt Goes Viral Over Ill-Placed "Period Flower"


JCPenney, don't you know you aren't supposed to wear white when you are on your period?  

One particular skirt from the retailer, caught by this Imgur user's eye while scrolling through a recent catalog, shows what was meant to be a flower, looking a heck of a lot like Mother Nature came calling a few days early.

Just take a look at the photo, which is appropriately captioned "really could've picked a better place for that 'flower' design."

See?! This is like playing a game of "what do you see in the blob?"


While the catalog image seems to be a bad angle (it doesn't look as period-like in the product still on the JCPenney website — more like a colorful sonogram, TBH), we are still very confused as to why the retailer chose to place the "flower" there of all places. 

It could've been shorter, a different color or — here's an idea — simply not directly over the crotch.


If the catalog photo tells us anything about how we we would look walking to work with coffee, a purse and this unfortunate looks-like-a-stain skirt, it's that heads will be turning — and not in a good way.
