Who Can Wear A String Bikini?

Feb 29, 2008
Although the string bikini, or thong, has become increasingly popular it is still outlawed on some beaches. First introduced in America in 1974, this suit continues to sell and be worn on beaches worldwide, often times by women that have no business wearing such a small and revealing garment. In my opinion there is nothing wrong with the string bikini as long as it is worn by the right people; those who are healthy and work out regularly.

The string bikini is a swimsuit that is comprised of two small triangular shaped pieces of material that are sewn together by a piece of string. The string can be one continuous piece or it can be two pieces that tie together on each side of the hip.

How The String Bikini Originated

The history of the string bikini credits a Brazilian model, Rose de Primo for the actual creation of the suit, claiming that she was hired to model a bikini for a fashion shoot but did not own her own suit. In an effort to win the job, and with no money for which to spend on the purchase of a suit, she set about making her own at home.

When she discovered that she did not have enough material to sew the bottoms, she fashioned to small triangles of fabric and connected them together with string, thus the creation of the string bikini. When she appeared at the fashion shoot in her homemade string bikini, the fashion became instantly popular and has grown into a full-blown swimsuit industry.

Today, string bikinis are a very popular version of the bikini, sold worldwide in the swimsuit industry. The styles have changed through the years, with the fabric triangles becoming smaller and more revealing than the original model.

The World Wide Market For the String Bikini

As the world becomes more permissive, the string bikini becomes less an article of clothing and more of an accessory to acceptable nudity. Today, many retail outlets sell see-through string bikinis that are merely clear fabric covering the breast and groin regions without covering much of anything at all.

The string bikini market is full of variations of the small suit that has minimal coverage but wonderful advertisement of the body shape. These suits are developed for the female body that is extremely physically fit or surgically enhanced; as such suits would not complement the normal woman's body. Whether you want to wear one or not is completely up to you, however, just make sure that your body is worth looking at in one. Way too many people wear these suits and it just creates nothing more than an unsightly distraction at the beach.
