She wore an itty bitty.....

I found this interesting article on MSN today and thought I would share because technically we are in summer!!

"Summer is upon us, which means that Americans are heading to the beach to slather on the sunscreen and slip out of their clothes. In honor of the season, we present a two-piece celebration of the two-piece: In 2006, on the swimsuit's 60th birthday, Julia Turner chronicled the rise of the bikini in America.
Sixty years ago this week, the world's first bikini made its debut at a poolside fashion show in Paris. The swimsuit is now so ubiquitous that it's hard to comprehend how shocking people once found it. When the bikini first arrived, its revealing cut scandalized even the French fashion models who were supposed to wear it; they refused, and the original designer had to enlist a stripper instead!!"

I personally don't think I will be going back to a one-piece any time soon! Ok maybe if I had a large prego belly and it was just not good for the eyes to be upon then I might switch over to a tankini! I will admit that when I swim laps I have on my glam Nike one-piece suit...hey it is slenderizing and have thought of putting it under clothes! Not so much in this hot weather!
