Lost in the kerfuffle of kids getting the wrong One Direction presents for Christmas was news that one member of One Direction himself received a very memorable Yuletide gift:
Hahah the lads,you'll never bate them! Sean,dylan ,brad and shano bought me a mankini ! dopes— Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial) December 25, 2012
there goes that. Without any photos, our largest question about this gift—namely, what exactly is a mankini?—must go unanswered. Or does it? We've taken the liberty to mock up the various types of swimsuit known as a a "mankini," to see which one suits Niall the best:
THE WEIGHTLIFTER MANKINI:
THE JAMES BOND MANKINI:
THE BORAT MANKINI:
Which one is your favorite, Directioners?
