Holy cow, that’s pretty surprising that Marvel let Carol’s reaction through.
However, can we agree that Moonstone didn’t wear much more or better when SHE was Ms. Marvel?

Well… yes, Karla did wear Carol’s old classic costume when she was Ms. Marvel, but it’s difficult to interpret that as hypocrisy with regards to her taste in spandex (not that Karla isn’t a hypocrite elsewhere, obviously, but here I’m having trouble seeing it that way). She wore the Ms. Marvel costume because it was mandatory attire — like, she was ordered to:
and then she spends Dark Reign complaining about it (enough that “Karla hates the underwear costume” kind of approached running gag status)—
The fact that her digs at Carol here are gross and catty and we’re supposed to find them gross aside (because in-universe, it is gross; “wow a woman can’t expose skin AND be a feminist” scans as shitty and incorrect for a reason, although that may be trying to get a rise out of Tigra more than an indication of Karla’s own opinions), Karla really hates that costume.
[As a side note: not to get all “well ACTUALLY [pushes up glasses]” (she says as she pushes up her glasses), but the Ms. Marvel in the top Dark Avengers panel isn’t in fact Moonstone — that’s Superia (from Osborn’s even more ill-advised second pass at a Dark Avengers lineup).]
no one has ever hated a costume as much as i hate carol danvers’ lightning bolt bathing suit i hold the world record for costume distaste intensity with that one
