That's it, everyone pop on your bikini and off to the beach we go! Well it was the weather for it today but blimey, my body hasn't experienced the wearing of that classic two piece swimming sensation in quite a while. I am at that age where I would need considerably more material now, one which resembles a large skirt and a boob tube with not a lot showing in the middle. Ahhh there was a day I could carry off the stringy top and the bottoms that was made out of dental floss, well maybe not that adventurous and yep 'in my dreams'.
The bikini was was designed by the French designer Louis Reard and named after Bikini Atoll where the the U.S conducted atomic tests. It was a practical idea to allow ladies to cover their nether regions but allow the sun to shine on the rest of their bodies. I can never understand though why it's acceptable to walk around on a public beach in a bikini but frowned upon walking around in public in one's underwear. Funny that eh? The bra and pants are the same are they not?
The bikini comes in many different designs and some lovely styles in a wide range of sizes. Someone has actually thought about the lady who maybe a bit body conscious. Major bikini hazards though are to never knit your own bikini and watch out for those that have a lot of stringy ties. I always feared someone could just pull those strings and the whole thing is on the ground before you know it. Also watch out for the white bikini especially when swimming and frankly on an English gal that hasn't pre tanned before the holiday you may just appear translucent.
So happy anniversary to this two piece wonder and may it continue. I have gone with the absolute classic bikini photo of Bond girl Ursula Andress. Who can forget the scene when she walked out of the sea, probably one of the most famous bikinis in film history.
Thank you for reading today, I will be back tomorrow with a Verse for Thursday, take care for now.
What to Buy Wednesday
From January 2018 I've decided to shake Wednesdays up and review products that I have purchased so we go from random thoughts to important retail therapy for the new year.
