PG's boob window? It's empowering or a symbol placeholder or something.
Helena's bare abs? She worked out a lot.
Wonder Woman's whole ensemble?

It has been explained before with the Diana Trevor story, though I guess a tip of the hat to a woman who gave her life to aid them wasn't good enough. Really drilling that in with Hippolyta wearing the flag in the scene right before this yet dropping the connection in favor of some coincidental weather and a few stars that might be Cassiopeia.

For a moment there I almost thought this was closer to the present day, ignoring the sudden break in the story, and they might actually be trashing the swim suit in favor of something less ridiculous.

Silly, optimism. Sensible clothing is for kids* (and men).

*If you know of something that contradicts this, please don't tell me. I don't want to know.

You know, I get the "She shouldn't look scary" idea for a lone ambassador who's task is to evangelicise the world.

And even though I hate with a passion you ditching the Diana Trevor origin -- because nothing you're replacing it with has ever had the simple elgance in explaining her wearing the Star Spangled Banner as the desire pay homage to someone from the Outside world who earned the respect of the Amazons -- I can get your attempt to try and ignore the patriotic origins for something more Amazonian.

But you still continue to fail to do anything that can possily explain why a strappless bathing suit was ever a good -- or even culturally appropriate -- in-universe idea.

Jesus. Whatever, guys. I am not reinventing or explaining the character since her inception. Did it explain why her costume is something I never said it was and don't agree with? Gee, no, sorry. I think the whole 'strapless bathing suit' is just silly.

And if the Trevor origin was so lovely and elegant and butterfly-esque, why is it so many devoted Wonder fans hate it?

I consulted with George and Phil and Greg on this scene and was extremely careful. If you insist on believing I ditching the Trevor origin, that's really your choice. I believe in adding, not negating.
