25 Swimsuits & Bikinis for Girls who aren’t into wearing Dental Floss


5th Jun, 2012

Do boys have any idea what girls have to go through in preparation for a beach holiday? From the extra hours pounding the tarmac to the waxing, bleaching and exfoliating– it’s a  bloody nightmare I tell you. Luckily, fashion is in our favor this year. With flattering photographic prints meaning less sit-ups and retro high waisted briefs entailing less bald bikini waxing, it seems style has decided to give us ladies a break this year. Pick a bathing suit that allows you to go back to being a kid again when the only thing that mattered was building sand castles and crashing into the sea– not how far your bikini bottoms were riding up your ass…
