Although bikinis have been accepted into the mainstream world of swimwear fashion for many years, with the introduction of the Brazilian-cut micro bikini by European influences, Hollywood movies, and trendy mazines, many women remain reluctant to wear the Brazilian micro bikini in public.
What started off as designer swimwear for sunbathing, eventually evolved into wearing the Brazilian micro bikini in public by non-movie-star type women–namely any woman who felt brave enough to wear such attire. However, to fully understand what’s at stake, let’s consider a few known facts. Brazilian bikinis, both the bikini tops and bottoms, reveal more skin than any of the previous bikini styles that were available in the United States. Most notably, the Brazilian bikini bottoms are so revealing that it is almost an unwritten rule that a woman must shave or wax her pubic hairs before going out in public while wearing such a suit.
On a side note, that’s how the term, “Brazilian bikini wax” was born. Before a woman could wear such a swimsuit, she had to remove (wax) the visible hairs that were not covered up by the bikini’s fabric.
The bottoms of Brazilian bikinis have slim strips of fabric that drape over the pelvic bone in front, and the fabric in back reveals almost every inch of a woman’s body. The bikini bottoms are known as Tanga, Asa Delta, and Fio Dental. The Tanga covers a minimal area of flesh on the backside, whereas the Asa Delta looks similar to a thong, but it has strips of fabric that line each side of the back. The Fio Dental is equivalent to the size of dental floss as it slithers in between the buttocks of the wearer.
Brazilian bikinis tops are equally as flesh revealing as the bottoms. Even though bikinis can be worn for swimming, the Brazilian bikinis are mostly known for sunbathing use. In the Brazilian bikini line, there are three styles of bikini tops: triangle, halter, and bandeau. The triangle covers the bust area with two miniscule-sized cups that suggest that they might cover a small portion of the breasts. A halter top has more fabric and is usually cinched around the neck to keep the woman’s bosom from falling out of the bikini’s top. A bandeau is similar to an elastic tube that slips over the head and covers the chest area. It has no ties at the neck or in the back.
Brazilian bikinis reveal more flesh than any other type of bikini on the market. You can also choose a sheer or see-thru fabric. There is very little left to the imagination when a woman wears this type of bikini. Therefore, although there are no universal rules that say a woman cannot wear a Brazilian bikini in public, many resorts, public beaches and pools do have the right to request that a woman leave the area or change into swimwear that is less revealing, especially if young children are present.
To be prepared for such a personal confrontation by management, a woman would be wise to bring along a more modest-styled swimsuit in the event she were asked to leave the premises due to her revealing swimwear. So, if you are daring enough, and have enough self-esteem, go ahead and wear your Brazilian micro bikini in public. Just be aware that you might be asked to leave.
One final thought: if Brazilian-cut bikinis were banned in a lot of public places, then we wouldn’t be seeing so many stores carrying them, right? However, sales are booming in all corners of the world when it comes to selling this type of swimwear. The bottom line is that women love wearing these bikinis, and men love looking at women wearing Brazilian bikinis. That fact alone is what drives sales up, and by looking at the fashion magazines, it doesn’t appear that the Brazilian bikini is going away anytime soon. So, ladies, go ahead and wear your micro bikinis in public. When management doesn’t approve, they’ll be sure to let you know…maybe.
