I believe these are directly related to the widespread (to a ridiculous extreme, in my opinion) fear of skin cancer and propensity to slather copious amounts of the highest SPF sunscreen available, which also makes disgusting oil slicks in the pool and no doubt pollutes lakes and oceans. Clearly there will be no tan lines to worry about matching up each time.

Even when I had a better figure, I still wore my all time, golden oldie, favorite bathing suit...Lands End tugless tank. Holds you in, and moves with you. Great for range of motion, and modesty, without looking dowdy.

Bandeau style tops aren't flattering either on most women.

I've seen those fringe style tops which I think is super tacky. It's like what a cowgirl would wear at the beach.

The thong or Brazilian style cut... Okay I have sort of observed something weird about this. It looks great on thin girls with no behind. It's like it almost gives them a butt lift. On girls who already have a big butt, it looks huge (maybe that's what they want though).
I agree, I like Lepel swimwear, great shaping and lovely styles and fabrics..http://underworldunderwear.co.uk/wp-...d3e61468d9.jpg

I'm no prude, but I was just at the beach, and the asses hanging out of the ridiculously tiny bikini bottoms were...I dunno...trashy. Just like the giant moobs on the dude wearing a big gold chain.

At the end of the day, though, people should wear what makes them comfy.

ha ha. You don't happen to care for something so no one else should possibly like it? I can 100% guarantee that there are things you like that other people don't.

You have to be extemly tone to wear those. People need to stick to items that complement their body type. This could work well for someothing very think and lean. Otherwise it is likely to be a hot mess.
