Down at my local having a coffee in the sun and looking at the swimwear on display and I can happily put it in two categories, functional and decorative. The functional costumes, you can swim in, while the decorative are made to cover just enough, these are not recommended for swimming.
|Caution: size and shape may be different|
I must confess to preferring the limited addition of the decorative type, they really struggle to contain or cover what they meant to. Very interesting study. The bottom of the swimsuit leaves ample space for the sun to maximise its shine to the whole of the bottom. Quite ingenious and pleasing on the eye, beware, all bottoms do not suit this type of swimwear.
Those of ample shape should go for the more conventional cut thereby saving us the embarrassment of having to avert our eyes when they walk, bend or swim. Sometimes too much is just that. Isaac Newton explored the theory of gravity and it has remained the same, gravity will prevail. 'Newton's law of universal gravitation states that a particle attracts every other particle in the universe using a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers.'
The makers of these decorative swimsuits should research this theory before designing and selling them to the unsuspecting public. Take for example, a well built wearer of one of these swimsuit and then mix them together with a small wave, that which was so elegantly covered is now on public display. Newtons law comes in again, the top of the bikini will naturally be attracted down by the weight of the water, while the contents will be buoyed up by the natural process of wanting to float. Result, topless.
This is complex problem and I must confess I do not have all the answers.
