After we posted about Calvin Trillin’s imagined “sling contraption” for a walk-in tub, we started hunting for images of what that might look like. Maybe there was such a thing already.

Instead we found a tub that has made the rounds on design blogs: an elegant, sleekly-shaped fiberglass tub modeled after a hammock (a sling, of sort). Beautiful. BUT…

…If you imagine how much water it would hold, up to a couple of inches below the top edge of the lowest side, AND imagine yourself lying in the tub, you’d find your body and legs mostly NOT in warm water, but in cold air.

…And what about your legs? Are you bound to lie in one arcing position, half in/half out of water?
