First introduced in 1964 by Austrian-American fashion designer Rudi Gernreich, the monokini unfortunately didn’t make much of an impact back then, as it was criticized for being way too radical, designed to expose a woman’s bare breast.
Fast-forward to Summer 2010 and some major adjustments, the monokini is considered a must have in any woman’s wardrobe. This risqué (depending on the style) swimsuit features a cutout design, with the top and bottom pieces connected by thin straps, laces, mesh, metal accessories or any other combination. While it is definitely more flattering that a two-piece if you’re looking to minimize a bit of flab, you must choose the cut wisely and make sure it fits properly.
Get your monokini in a range of colours
Hailed as an elegant, yet sexy swimsuit, monokinis are available in a variety of colours, with the most popular styles this summer being bold leopard print designs.
