This is a condition which sometimes arises amongst female swimmers. Sometimes, the strap of a girl's bathing suit will rub up against her neck, and if this goes on for the entirety of a very long practice, hickey-like marks are left on the neck.
In the locker room after swim practice, Caroline noticed odd red marks on her neck. Jane, noticing them also, said, "Congratulations on your first bathing suit hickey."
