Swimwear Swimsuits

The swimwear was created by Louis Reard and Jacques Heim, in Paris in 1946. However, due to its skimpiness, barely anybody had the nerve to use a swimwear till the late 1950s, when actress Brigitte Bardot produced a splash by wearing a swimsuit in the movie, ‘And God Created Woman.’ The bikini transformation subsequently became a rage, as well as got its own song: ‘Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini.’

Coming back to today, bikinis have actually become modest in character. Swimwear bottoms are providing more coverage than in the past without quiting on their sex appeal. Last season saw straight, top-line swimwear bottoms. Surprisingly, there were barely any deep-V swimsuit bottoms, thongs or G-strings in sight. With more protection in design, fashion houses are forecasting that the ‘skirtini’ is going to be the next huge thing in the swimwear industry.

Bikinis been available in a variety of styles, the most popular being ‘Tankini’ (a longer top that leaves just a small part of the stomach exposed), ‘Bandini’ (a swimsuit with a bandeau top), ‘Camikini’ (much like the tankini other than the leading looks like a camisole), and ‘Boy Legs’ (the bottom is longer and looks like brief shorts). The classic halter-top, however, is still in style although the ‘Bandini’ was the hippest swimwear style last season, with nearly every swimsuit label producing its own take on it. For the ties that bind, sashes, rather than spaghetti strings, remained in demand.

For those on the much heavier side, sarongs continue to be a lovely way to conceal the extra pounds, although board shorts are a sporty alternative.
