Costume controversy.

Yandy decided to stop selling a sexy Handmaid's Tale costume after outcry on social media!

The lingerie retailer's website featured a model wearing a "Brave Red Maiden Costume," consisting of a red skin-tight minidress, long red cape and white bonnet. In the dystopian series, women forced into surrogacy are made to wear a similar outfit -- except with much longer hemlines.

In the show, handmaids are assigned to elite families and groomed into sexual servitude, where they are raped, impregnated and forced to give birth. They are also barred from working, owning property or handling money. Those who resist are beaten, tortured or even killed.

The series is based on Margaret Atwood's best-selling novel by the same name.

Yandy's costume included a product description that appeared to reference the series: "An upsetting dystopian future has emerged where women no longer have a say. However, we say be bold and speak your mind in this exclusive Brave Red Maiden costume."

But social media was really against the sexy spin to the costume.

"Our initial inspiration to create the piece was through witnessing its use in recent months as a powerful protest image," Yandy added, seemingly referring to women dressed as handmaids at Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearing earlier this month.
