However that has not hurt the sell of this particular swim suite.

The tag references the state's Proposition 65 which requires visible warnings for potentially dangerous chemicals. Enacted in 1986, the legislation was amended in 2018 to include a provision that requires companies to identify the specific chemicals used that prompt the warning.
