Bikini Swimsuits Picture
The bikini swimsuits were invented by Louis Reard and
Jacques Heim, in Paris in 1946. However, due to its skimpiness, hardly anyone
had the courage to wear a bikini until the late 1950s, when actress Brigitte
Bardot created a splash by wearing a bikini in the film, ‘And God Created
Woman.’ The bikini revolution subsequently became a rage, and even got its own
song: ‘Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini.’
Coming back to the present, bikini swimsuits have become modest in
Bikini bottoms are offering more coverage than in the past
without giving up on their sex appeal. Last season witnessed straight, top-line
bikini bottoms. Surprisingly, there were hardly any deep-V bikini bottoms,
thongs or G-strings in sight. With more coverage in style, fashion houses are
predicting that the ‘skirtini’ is going to be the next big thing in the bikini swimsuits industry.
Bikini swimsuits come
in a variety of styles, the most popular being ‘Tankini’ (a longer top that
leaves only a small portion of the stomach exposed), ‘Bandini’ (a bikini with a
bandeau top), ‘Camikini’ (similar to the tankini except the top looks like a
camisole), and ‘Boy Legs’ (the bottom is longer and resembles short shorts).
The classic halter-top, however, is still in vogue although the ‘Bandini’ was
the hippest bikini style last season, with almost every swimwear label
producing its own take on it. For the ties that bind, sashes, rather than
spaghetti strings, were in demand.
With so many styles of bikini swimsuits on the market,
it is important to take note of what works for your body and what does not. For
example, when shopping for a tankini, make sure the stomach portion of the suit
lies flat against your stomach but is not too tight. If it is too tight, your stomach will bulge
causing more harm than good.
