Maybe it's just the model, but dear god those swimsuits look terrible.

I can't imagine any sane female buying one as much being seen in public wearing one of those hideous excuses for swimwear.

Oh my goodness, the swim suit design has serious artistic issues (no, the model has nothing to do with this issue) let along the practical design. Good call for cancelling them

I can easily see plenty of girls liking these swimsuits for the uniqueness, but it's almost impressive how unflattering they are. The Madoka art is plenty cute though, even if I don't quite know how I feel about Homura with braids but no glasses.

Just because something looks decent on a 2D drawing doesn't mean it won't look like complete ass on a real person. Woof.

They are only cancelling the Madoka goods which are pretty cute I don't see anything about those atrocities they call swimsuits being cancelled.

Once again we see that what it looks great in 2D doesn't work in 3D.

This. Exactly this. Those parts hanging over the arms look like a great way to drown, too.

The real life versions look terrible, the campaign would've given false expectations of looking good if it were to continue.

The first one just looks like clothing, the second one is actually pretty cute in my opinion, if you just take off those sleeves, but the last two look hideously cheap and ill-fitting.
