When designing products, there are a few things you want to make sure it doesn't come out looking like.
Obvious pitfalls are genitalia and "naughty" bits of the human body. If you can generally ensure that your product doesn't look like boobs or butts, you're pretty much in the clear.
But it's probably a good idea to make sure when you're making a pool float that it doesn't look like an enormous maxi pad.
Something that this float-designer apparently found difficulty avoiding. Which I really don't understand. I mean, I've never once used a sanitary pad before, but I know a feminine hygiene product when I see one and that, my friends, is a feminine hygiene product.
Twitter, of course, was tickled pink by the design choice.

Some just wanted to understand how this design ever made it to final production.
Or even a focus group containing a single man who has had a real-world domestic relationship with a woman.— Charlie Stross (@cstross) July 3, 2017

But mostly, they just had jokes.
Remake of The Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman was going well, but producers baulked at level of realism required by director Sophia Coppola— BranePower Guy (@BranePowerGuy) July 4, 2017
If you don't want to lose this on the pool deck, just pull off the adhesive strip on the back and attach it to your chair!— Becky McG. (@bmmcgar) July 3, 2017
And someone pointed out an interesting design congruity Tesla shares with IUDs.
That can never be unseen.
