I had every intention of posting about beaching at Gas Chambers weeks ago.. but it never happened. Coincidently, the topic of high-waisted bikini bottoms came up within the last couple of days. Perfect opportunity.
Now, this is getting into some real man repeller territory. Something I think the repellizer herself would be proud of. The high-waisted bikini bottom. My boyfriend doesn’t like them. He gave me a funny look when I shimmied them on for the first time. A guy told my friend [who has the same bottoms] that she had “granny panties.” She might never be able to wear her bottom with the same confidence again.
Then there are those who rave about them. Impressed that we who brave the beach with such bottoms can really “pull it off.” People ask what brand they are, where they’re from. The real slick guys with style compliment cooly.. indubitably impressed. And in all honesty, it doesn’t really offend any one either. Young or old (no skimpy or saggy going on here!).
Obviously you know where I stand. I where them. I love them. The bottoms are unique and flattering. They keep everything tucked and never come off when I’m surfing. If anything, I probably get more attention wearing these bad boys on the beach then any of my other bikinis. Double looks.. and maybe some snickering and snide remarks. But whatever. To me, these Mikoh bottoms are fashion. The stuff that gets people talking and turns some heads. Something hard to come by in the surf/swimwear industry. So you may like it.. you may not. But that’s what it’s all about!!
And so, I will continue to brave the beach with bold bikini statement.
