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

By

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…

Here are my picks for all budgets
