Neckholder - Crochetbikini - Monokini - Trikini.
Almost no other piece of clothing in human history has stirred so much controversy, and no other article of clothing needs less fabrics - we are talking about the BIKINI. (A bikini is a very brief, close-fitting two-piece bathing suit worn by women). In the sixties this kind of garment made its breakthrough, but bikinis have been worn before by female romans - over 2000 years ago! Named after the destroyed Bikini atoll, the 'land of the coconuts' dominates many modern-day beaches and offers an enrichment to the fantasies of men. Between the invention of the bikini and its breakthrough laid the decades of the sexual revolution and the further development of the garment. Only when in the sixties the slogan 'sex sells' comes up, the bikini is slowly making its way into mainstream. By now there are many different versions of it - and they couldn't be any more different: The sling-bikini, the neckholder-bikini, but also the trikini (a combination of string, top and skirt) and also the one piece monokini.
up of the words neck and hold, the neckholder-bikini
will be tied on the neck and not on the back as a typical bikini. This
kind of bikini offers a unhindered view of the back and a positive
side-effect also a push-up for the decollete. However, this kind of
garment is not for all type of women, but especially women with large
breasts can benefit from it, because the straps are quite wide and that
means, that it is perfect for holding large breasts. The advantages of
a neckholder-bikini have been discovered by many women, one of them is
the singer Beyonce, who was spotted in Monaco in 2007 with such a model.
Since a few years, the modern variety of the monokini, (which is a previously laughed-at further development of the bikini) is winning fans with women and fashion-designers. The original monokini (the name means made from one piece) kept the breasts uncovered, and because the breasts were not supported, was unfit for swimming. This and questions of morals was responsible, that sales were low. But fashion-designers re-discovered the monokini a few years back and today it is like two pieces combined through a piece of cloth, which suggests optically one unit. It is as comfortable to wear as a conventional bikini - so a decision whether to buy one or not is a matter of personal taste!
One variety of the bikini which is somehow not so popular is the trikini. As the name suggests, it is made up from 3 pieces and is available in 2 varieties. Both of them have panties in common, whereby variety one has cups to hold the breasts, which have to be attached with clue because there are no straps and this is not quite comfortable. Furthermore, skin-friendly clues do not stick too strongly, which sometimes meant that the cups just fell off. The more common variety 2 is more like a regular bikini, just with an additional piece of cloth in the back.
