This sexier bustier inspired swimsuit has an abstract animal print and an adorable cutout keyhole in front.  This would be perfect for the pool with a simple hat and tote bag.  Vintage inspired swimwear rocks it!

The swimsuit is by Insight and was posted to Style Hive.  It has detachable straps, a clasp closure in back, and it is fully lined.  The front has a cute keyhole and the back has an open keyhole under the straps that extends to the scoop bottom.  You’ll need to wear sunscreen with this one or avoid the sun otherwise you’ll wind up with a keyhole tan! 

Notice the bustier inspired bandeau top replete with the vintage ribbing down the front.  This cutout bustier swimsuit is so glam, and the abstract animal print with bronze accents is feisty.  The black pinstripe down both sides of the front give a waist slimming effect.  The peek-a-boo style also enhances the bust.  An awesome selection.  The swimsuit model has the perfect cute hair style and sunglasses to complete this vintage swimsuit inspired look.


Have you ever gotten a designer bikini as a birthday present?   Swimmer Stephanie Rice has.  When Olympic gold medalist Stephanie Rice posted a photograph of herself in a sexy designer swimsuit she got as a gift from fashion designer Ellie Gansalve, she suffered some backlash from her fans from her homeland Australia.  A former Speedo sponsored athlete, Rice took to the more racy side of things when she showed off in this sexy wrap around bikini number from designer Ellie Gonsalve.  The bikini bottoms are admittedly rather low cut.

Ellie Gonslave has hearkened her avant garde designs back to the day of Norma Kamali with her bikinis that have wrap around string ties in the midriff area.  I think the conservative backlash is a tad out of control.  Kamali style swimsuits were in style decades ago in the days of the famed Tees beach in Santa Monica/Pacific Palisades.  She’s totally covered even though the swimsuit is pretty sexy indeed.  Apparently Rice has tweeted racy pictures of herself before which is what the hoopla is about.  She was dressed up as a police woman for Halloween and posted that picture online, also to a chorus of commentary.

I think Rice should be able to wear any bikini she wants as long as it has enough coverage of her personal areas which this one certainly does.  Granted it’s no Speedo but it is no more revealing than many micro tiny string bikinis that are sold daily online by swimwear retailers.  Plenty of celebrities post pictures of themselves in outfits even racier than this one.  She’s a big girl and can make her own decisions.  She does have a wholesome image to uphold which this swimsuit defies, but at the same time, she’s just a young girl having some fun.  It’s not uncommon if you consider what college peers at her age might wear. 

Chalk it up to momentary insanity, hey it’s youth and after all she’s not exposed.  In this day and age celebrities have private home movies for sale and they survive those indiscretions.  The Victoria Secret’s angels walk the fashion runway in lingerie and wings for heavoes sake.  Rock stars dance wearing skimpy getups in their music videos.  Magazines like Maxim and FHM show their fair share of skin.  This is just a girl wearing a revealing bikini.  It’s a swimsuit you might see at the beach any day of summer.  The black strap detail is a bit Gothic and the bikini is skimpier than what the average male or woman likely prefers. But that is her choice to wear it or not to wear it.  Are you ok with this bikini or do you feel that she should have known better?


There is no better way to look fantastic in a bikini than by being in shape. As you can see with this simple white bikini, the simple and classic clean line looks amazing if you have a good body to showcase. What does this mean ladies? That you need to make that effort to get into bikini body shape for summer.

Yes it does take motivation to get your body into shape.  Hot and sunny weather tends to make you lethargic especially during the peak heat hours from eleven to three.  So get into the cool shade or enjoy air conditioning at the gym.  Cool off and get in shape at comfortable temperatures.  Wear sunscreen if you do venture out into the heat.  

Keep your fridge stocked up with healthy fresh food during the summer months.  Buy some fresh fuits, whole wheat bread, and veggie sandwich ingredients to keep your lunch meals light and healthy.  Make grilled kabobs with lean meats and vegetables on the skewers for a light dinner.  Keep cold water in the fridge and stay hydrated.  If  you start eating just a little cleaner, and exercising just a little more it can really do a number on your looks.

For your diet you’ll want to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean protein and whole grains. I find it easier to stay slender if I eat breakfast. Eating breakfast helps keep you feel full and you won’t be tempted to consume junky snacks as the day progresses. Every day or so be sure to take a quick walk even if it is only for ten or fifteen minutes. Minor changes in your diet and exercise program can really add up over time.  Just stick to healthy eating and get natural and safe exercise.

To top off the healthy lifestyle, you should cleanse and moisturize your skin and keep skin blemish free.  For a youthful looking body you should also remove unwanted hairs with a clean shave, waxing or laser treatments. For that perfect tan look try an at home gradual fake tanning lotion such as from Jergens, Neutrogena or Oil of Olay. If you have the money to spend on the tanning salon make your appointment for a spray tan such as mystic tan. Avoid the tanning beds as they radiate your skin and increase your cancer risk.  Opt for a fake golden tan instead because it is safer.

If you’ll be using spray tan be sure it is completely dry and adhered before wearing a bright white bikini as the tanning color may smear onto the fabric wrecking the perfect white color for good. Solid colors are slenderizing as they give a sleek appearance and create less visual distraction.
