I didn't know that there were "bikini experts" now! Wonder what the education requirements are for that one?!

Hi-cut bikini bottoms are nothing new. I used to wear them all of the time in the 80's when I was a teenager, lol.

Just keep your fingers crossed that they don't bring back leg warmers, spandex everything, and bat wing shirts.

If some of us want to wear one....as long as we're careful not to wear one around the Bf's parents...what's the big deal?

With most of those suits pictured in the OP, looks like a Brazilian wax is a must have. I, for one, am not having someone put hot wax on my nether regions and then rip it off. I did that to my legs and eyebrows once and had red spots for days. It also friggin' hurts!

Not everyone cares what others think, and good for them. I think some women wear revealing suits to protest the laws against women going topless. I've seen many posts about it in my twitter groups.

Have you seen the TaTaTop?
It's another form of protest.

This is so not true. Those gymnastic leotards have silicon stickies on the leg holes to keep them in place.

They also use glue and other tricks.

Living on the beach in South Florida, I see those bathing suits and the Brazillian cut all the time. I like them.

Lots of ways to groom our bikini areas without hot wax.....depilatories, laser, and sugaring which is my favorite by far.

I suppose the pastors feel like it's their duty but I'll bet they get aggravated having to spend every Sunday at the beach when they'd rather be preaching.

There are degrees of offense and it's not about women's flesh.

I was on a long snorkel tour with someone wearing one of these. The sights under the water were breath-taking but every time I raised my head to speak or clear my mask there was Miss Big Butt right in my face.

It didn't do a thing for me.

Go ahead and strut around with your butt bared all you want if that's your thing. Man or woman, just don't wave it in my face, please.

Maybe give her some space instead of being right up her butt when she's just trying to enjoy the sea life. It's not her fault you were all up in her personal space.

Every couple of years, it's something about women's bathing suits. A few years ago, it was about the ones that were like a thong in back, no butt coverage. I always thought the high-cut ones were unattractive, but what really bugs me, are the ones designed to look like little girls' underwear. I kept seeing those on designers' websites the last couple of years; I think they're still around for this summer, too. That's creepy. AFAIK, only American designers make women's bathing suit bottoms that way. Brazil has been into string bikinis for ages, and Europe tends to follow Brazil (if they wear bathing suits at all), but American designs tend to be influenced by porn.
