Feeling beach-bummed that your body isn’t “bikini-ready” for Memorial Day? Don’t sweat it.

Retail data company EDITED reports that the number of bikini styles offered online has dropped 9%, while one-piece models have spiked 20%.

And single-piece swimsuits – sometimes called “monokinis” – are selling out three times faster than they did at this time last year, with figure-flattering and tummy-controlling designs moving the fastest, followed by traditional, round-neck suits.

“The one-piece has made an explosive comeback this year. It’s not surprising due to current trends and our quest for comfort – and retailers are capitalizing on this growth with a bevy of flattering and daring styles for 2017,” Emily Bezzand, head analyst at EDITED, told Moneyish.



Women hate bikinis now? I wonder if there's any correlation with the above story and the one below which I read just a few weeks ago.

Mirror mirror on the wall, whose the fattest country in the world? Ouch.

The obesity rate for American adults (aged 15 and over) came in at a whopping 38.2%, which puts the birthplace of the hamburger and the Cronut at the top of the heftiest-nations-in-the-world rankings, according to an updated survey from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

Running at a not-too-close second is border pal Mexico, with 32.4% of population considered obese, followed by New Zealand, Hungary and Australia (the U.K. comes in at No. 6). The skinniest nations are Japan, with a tiny 3.7% of the population tipping the scales, followed by India, Korea, Indonesia and China. And across much of Europe, less than 20% of the population can be considered obese, according to the survey that was released Thursday.


Will beaches become modest and PG for everyone not to be offended?

Those oppressive, misogynistic genetics that are 100% making women fat need to be stopped first! #fatisbeautiful

I would make a point about speedos and men's beauty standards but I just turned on and I need to tune in and drop out

I know a friend of mine is planning to use a one piece this year.

Either way, I know the percentage of fat is set to rise regardless in another few years. At this point though, threads like this are just "Oh, cool" or turn into bickering. Nothing to it anymore, burnout setting in.

Four pages, Cylons? That's being a bit generous. I give it two and a half tops.

I actually just went to the beach recently and it had been a while since I had gone anywhere and notice that the new trend was "cheeky" bikini bottoms, It had been a few years since I'd gone swimming but I was surprised how this had somehow become "normal" in the last few years. No problem from my part, the cheekier the better, it was weird seeing this trend that apparently has been going on for a while and became socially acceptable when ten years ago it was still seen as not appropriate while they're all worn like it's just a normal bikini. I guess it was the same when normal bikinis began appearing in beaches but eventually they became accepted.

I've also noticed that one piece bathing suits are not like the ones I sued to know, they're not very modest as they show quite a bit of side boob. So they're not really being born because of modesty, just to be different. I mean many are just bikinis that are connected. Here are some examples:

The article in general when I read it had a very click baity title when the actual article didn't really match the title very well nor did they go into detail. These FAKE news are not doing anyone favors.

I just looked up what a Cronut is. I think that I would rather stick with regular donuts, or with blueberry bagels.

Given how the last couple of locked threads went on surprisingly long, I'm padding my estimate. :twink:

With that sexy extra cut out to make sure those manly side-ribs show. lol Someday someone is gonna bring that back, even if unsuccessful.



I dunno, maybe a trend isn't necessarily always about weight or body self consciousness? I mean, thin people wear one pieces too. Maybe some of the cuts and prints of one pieces this year are simply nicer than some of the two pieces.

I'm thin, but personally I prefer tankinis these days, or the tank and shorts style. Partly being over the teens and 20-something drive to try to show stuff off, and partly I think they're just cuter.


Too each their own though. The only truly shameless person I've ever really seen at the beach, back when I was still a kid ('tween probably), was the guy in the Speedo-type piece (I think it was a bright color, maybe a neon yellow?) we had to pass by on the ramp back up to the boardwalk who was, lets say, super happy chatting with a couple of women. :lol: Not even walking by, just hanging out on the ramp. Swimwear hugging the junk is one thing... but shamelessly pitching tents in front of familes... wtf. Weirdo...either just get out of foot traffic or grab a damn towel; rather than just hanging against the railing like you're so proud of yourself. A chunky lady enjoying wearing a two piece, or a guy letting the beer belly hang out, have nothing on that.

Exactly, the article in question is god damn ridiculous and they change things to fit their narrative. Most in this thread didn't even bother to click the link as seen from some of the replies. As my second post pointed out modern one piece swimming suits are just as revealing if not more than the average Bikini while bikini's surface area coverage has become smaller and acceptable in smaller years making the whole "women don't like them" for those reasons and that they want suits to better fit their body a stretch. I also found it amusing that a few days after BI tweeted about America being #1 in obsesity they tweet about how now Americans prefer one piece bathing suit, which the article doesn't mention though the second part is all about "bigger' women in bathing suits.

I was hoping for more opinions in this thread but oh well, I still think we can mark this as FAKE news.

Well since you posted a pic of that volleyball match lol. I think the best looking one was Irene Verasio from Argentina, I could watch her play beach volleyball all day. She got hurt this year, so she didn't make the games, but last games she competed. Shock they allow thongs, but there she is running up there in a thong lol. But she is real pretty also.
