Putting on a bikini generally means getting as undressed as can be (in public that is…). The whole idea behind it is to expose your bare skin and body to the sun. There’s no surprise we got a little bit taken aback when the long lost swimsuit returned in stores and on runways. Trading a Victoria’s Secret bikini for a swimsuit à la granny style is simply out of the question.But what if it’s not anymore?

Once upon a time swimsuits were worn by the older generations, the older generations only. In hideous colours and with an unflattering fit, they were never to be seen in a fashionista’s closet.

Leila Hyams, 1930s, Clarence Sinclair Bull,:

But beware. Change is in the air.

Once the neckline and back were lowered, modern patterns and colours more added the ever so hated swimsuit rose from the dead. The fashion elite gave their approval and eventually so did we.

There is an upside to wearing a swimsuit instead of a bikini; for instance, you don’t have to worry about either piece being ripped off by the waves or that your belly will be hanging out. However, you get a pretty awful tan.
