bikinis swimsuits - The bikini was created by Louis Reard and Jacques Heim, in Paris in 1946. However, because of its skimpiness, hardly anyone had the courage to put on a bikini until the late 1950s, when actress Brigitte Bardot made a splash by wearing a bikini within the film, 'And God Created Woman.' The bikini revolution subsequently was a rage, and even took its own song: 'Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini.'
triangle bikini - Coming back to the present, bikinis have become modest in character. Bikini bottoms are providing more coverage than in the past without giving up on their sex appeal. Last season witnessed straight, top-line bikini bottoms. Surprisingly, there was hardly any deep-V bikini bottoms, thongs or G-strings in sight. With more coverage in fashion, fashion houses are predicting how the 'skirtini' is going to be the next big thing in the swimsuit industry.
beach bikinis - Bikinis 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 using a bandeau top), 'Camikini' (similar to the tankini except the most notable looks like a camisole), and 'Boy Legs' (the underside is longer and resembles short shorts). The classic halter-top, however, remains in vogue although the 'Bandini' was the hippest bikini style last season, with almost every swimwear label producing its take on it. For the ties that bind, sashes, as opposed to spaghetti strings, were in demand.
For those on the heavier side, sarongs continue to be a flattering method to cover up the extra pounds, although board shorts are a sporty alternative.
