We didn't need an expert to tell us that in the 80s, a mirror and/or friend did it for us. Higher cut legs worked great for me as I am short legged with wider hips. Wearing a suit that goes straight across my hips only made me look short and fat. Of course, if I had my 1980s body today, I'd say "oh you skinny thing!"

Perhaps the exhibitionists aren't making a sexual statement at all?

Protest is good.

I'm one of those people who actually wants to SWIM in a swimsuit. Even if I weren't 66, that high-cut version would be useless for me.

I was thinking the same thing, where do I enroll?


But there are lots of outfits that don't work for everyone. I saw a woman the other day with a belly shirt who was at least 60 pounds overweight. No one needs to see that.

I need some more pictures so I can make a decision.

Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital.

I had a female English Professor that had a similar saying when asked how long should a particular essay be.


Like a woman's bikini. Long enough to cover the subject but short enough to make it interesting.

these bikinis in the original post pictures aren't swim suits. they wouldn't stay on the body with any activity in the water! these tiny bikinis are worn to display to others the wearer's body in full.

beautiful young bodies are fun to look at. who doesn't admire them? If a young woman wants to display all but the bits illegal to flaunt, i'm sure she will most happily get the attention she is soliciting.
