Micro Bikinis

Micro bikini is a common swimwear and beachwear in most of the western countries especially during summer seasons. A micro bikini is an ultra skimpy bathing suit that is worn as swimwear or during beach parties. The clothing is designed to cover a very small part of the skin leaving the major part of the body exposed. In fact some of the designs are very sparse and are not allowed to be worn on public beaches in some countries especially in Africa and Asia where people are very observant of their traditions.

It is therefore illegal to wear a micro bikini in the countries where nude sunbathing is not allowed. However, it is worth noting that micro bikinis were first introduced in the 1970s as response to laws in some countries that banned nude sunbathing on public beaches. They were introduced to cover only what the law defined as nudeness and nothing more.


Micro bikinis are available in different design for both women and men. In most cases, a micro bikini for women constitute of only two tiny pieces of fabric to cover the nipples and a skimpy, low cut thong bottom. On the other hand, a micro bikini for men constitutes of a small fabric to cover the bottom and a small pouch-like upfront to cover the genitals. For those who are bold enough to expose almost all parts of their bodies while swimming or in the beach, there are some micro bikinis that are even skimpier and instead of having strips of cloth, they are made up of a thin fishing wire or other nearly invisible materials that hold small pieces of fabric together. Some micro bikini designs do not even cover the genitalia. They are so tiny and so low cut in the front that the wearers expose their private parts. Some of the micro bikinis are transparent and one can see through. Some male micro bikinis are more like “socks” that are designed to cover and hold the male genitalia in a form and fitting-fashion.

Micro bikinis are currently a common swimwear among the young adults who are bold enough to expose their great body looks.

It is worth noting that other than during swimming and beach parties, micro bikinis have also currently worn during body building competitions.
