Ladies Beach Wear: Hoop Skirt to Bikini

Thursday, 09 July 2009

ladies beach wearIn case if the present age group cannot remember what the hoop skirts are, it is women's undergarment worn in various periods to hold the skirt extended into a fashionable shape. They were «a must have» for any woman of previous centuries. As well as mini skirts found in the wardrobe of any young girl of our days. This is the real and striking shift of vogue, though the trends look similar. People tend to comfort, less fabric and more naked body. And beach wear proves this tendency as the most outright fashion today.

It is a funny stuff to know that three centuries ago a woman should have experienced terrible inconveniences to go swimming. First, it took several hours to wear all the outfit items. Second, dense underwear, stockings, a dress, a bodice, boots and a cap were so ugly and uncomfortable, and the only requirement it met was modesty, so characteristic to that time. Besides, the dress had a hem specially made heavy not to swim over the water, which was quite problematic to carry, you know.

That time, the whole process of swimming was assumed to come into the water up to the knee level and stroll to and there for a while. That was all swimming process. The majority of women preferred staying on the bank and relax on benches under big umbrellas. And only young and adventurous and naughty young ladies afforded going into the water.

A bit later, when swimming acquired new tendencies and directions, and ladies afforded splashing around in the water, they had their bathing suits made a little bit more comfortable. At least, they could get rid of a bodice and hoop skirts.

At some time the swimming as the sport won the popularity, men preferred wearing cotton trunks, for the swimming purpose only. It seemed very impudent, and the sport was the only excuse.

Nevertheless, a closed women's bathing suit appeared in 1880, still presented in a blouse and knickers. By time, bathing suits became smaller in size. The police banned wearing swimsuits shorter than traditional garments, though ideas of designers were becoming more provocative for that time. The top of the swimsuit lost the sleeves first, then knickers turned into the shorts. That was winning for the time with conservative looks. Finally, the swimsuit was divided into two pieces, which was presented in 1920; however, the first models appeared to look very modest unlike the bathing suits of these days.

The first swimsuit that appeared on French beaches in 1946 was designed by Louis Réard. The bathing suit was named after Bikini Atoll in the Pacific, the place where the Army of America tested nuclear weapons, a while before the display of the swimming suit. Since that time the bikini has the same cut for a great option of swimsuits, though they experiment with the style and fabric only.

Nevertheless, having too little to show to and strike the audience, current designers manage to show their skills and creativity when inventing bikini of our days. And it is proved by the photo-gallery from the last show Swimwear Fashion, when they finally stroke and surprised the public with their goods.

Now, it's the very time to see what is in vogue in summer and what will attract the fashion society. Beach Fashion 2009 has several brilliant trends for those who want to be fashionable this summer.

1. Cut-Away Bikini. This style with very complicated cut to reveal more naked skin is one of the sexiest and unique fashion trends of the season. Women glamour of the West bet that Cut-Away bikini will be as bandwagon and the sexiest swimsuit of ‘09.

Second trend is special for its knitted top with traditional laces. The swimsuits mainly come in beige, coffee, chocolate and pale-pinky shades.

Third trend shows monokini where the top and down of the swimsuit are put together with a wide patterned band.

3. Bandeau Striped Bikini Swimsuit. A classic bikini swimsuit is refreshed with a bandeau top and vivacious color. Top has built-in soft cups and an optional halter strap. Low-rise bottoms have high-cut legs. Bandeau can also be knitted. This is the trend of 2009.

4. One-strap Top Bikini. Tops with one strap only, where the top itself is a wide band, plain, without vivid patterns and contrasting colors.

5. High-riding swimming trunks. Flashback to the'60s. Sad news - such bikini will look elegant only to ideally shapely girls. As a rule, the top resembles traditional underwire with straps or without.
