FESTIVALS have their realm in fashion where most people dress in as little as possible because they can.
One woman was trolled for wearing a bra and underwear to Electric Forest Festival, but a particular aspect of her outfit angered viewers most.
From head-to-toe sparkles to chains and feathers, festival wear can be everything from fairy-style to grunge.
The options are limitless, and depending on the music, you can dress to the theme or not, normally without people judging you.
TikTok sensation Nadya Okamoto experienced backlash after she posted a video of her dancing around in her outfit at Electric Forest, an electronic dance festival.
But it wasn't necessarily her clothing choice that had people so mad.

In her video, she dances in front of the concert stage wearing a bra top, pink thong, sneakers, and a backpack.
Her caption reads: "Day 3 on my period."

As she moves around, you can see the faint lining of her pad underneath her bottoms.
"As you all know, you can't really plan when you get your period, and I was actually on my period at Electric Forest," she says.
"And I wasn't going to let my period stop me from wearing what I wanted to."
Because she was on her period, Nadya was doing a product promotion with the pad she was wearing.
However, viewers didn't take any positive interest in her promotion whatsoever.
Nadya's video attracted over 92,000 comments.
Most of the comments ridiculed her for wearing what she did while she was on her period.
"I just think you gotta have some class when doing stuff," one woman wrote, while another said: "Omg that's horrible why would you do that?"
Nadya's point was to empower women to be proud and unashamed of themselves when they have their period.
But again, she didn't receive the reaction she was hoping for.
"As a woman. No," another bothered woman commented.
People didn't understand how she could make such a private and personal matter so publically visible to everyone around her.
"Nah. pooing is natural too but I wouldn't walk around with used toilet roll in me hand," a disgusted person said.
Another concerned viewer wrote: "I get what point you’re trying to prove but it’s too much. it’s respect… for you and the for people around you."
Aside from the fact that she was flaunting her pad in front of others, viewers thought it was brave of her to wear just underwear when she could have had a big issue.
"The only problem is odor and the risk of leaks," a viewer said.
Yet, some people felt Nadya was paving the way for women to be more confident and unafraid.
"It’s just so normal, it’s not embarrassing, what’s embarrassing is that periods are still a taboo when we are all here thanks to them," one supporter wrote.
Another commented: "Who CCAARREESSS?! Bleeding is natural! She has a pad, she isn’t free bleeding on everyone! Live your life sis!!!"
However, a different commenter said: "Talking abt pads and tampons should be 100% normalized and I love that she’s open abt it, but I don’t want to see a random stranger's pad."
