Why I Love Bikinis from Underwear Dude
Bikini briefs are one of the older skimpier styles, and in this day and age, to many they are overshadowed by more modern styles like the thong and the fashion jock, and are also being supplanted by low rise briefs. Even so, bikinis will never really go away, and might even be making a comeback.
I really like bikinis. I love the combination of skimpy yet coverage, style and substance. Some days I want something fun but want my backside covered. This balance is one of the bikini’s strongest points. Bikinis are available in many more different varieties than any other style. There are so many different things you can change. You can mess with the front coverage, anywhere from a conservative, more mass market definition of a bikini all the way to being practically indistinguishable from more skimpy styles. Rear coverage offers even further flexibility. Anywhere from normal full backs, to three-quarters, half, even smaller, or anywhere in between. There is also the”string bikini” style, where the legs are left free of material, leaving only the waistband, pouch, and rear. There truly is an option for everyone with the bikini.
Among some retailers, bikinis are becoming more and more common. For instance, lets take a look at the well known designer N2N. They’ve been making all types of underwear for decades now, and their bikinis, thongs, and jocks are top notch.
Among their newest collections, which include Classic Rib, Primary, Fresh, XXX, California Dreamin, Air, Luxe, and Vintage; out of all seven lines only two have thongs, while every one of them has a bikini available. That’s just one brand, but telling for sure.
The low rise brief has also stolen much of the bikinis market share, as many of these briefs might as well just be conservatively styled bikinis with a waistband! Even so, you will still find bikinis, usually “string bikini” style, with cutaway legs and a waistband, among big brief brands like Andrew Christian.
In closing, while over the past decade the market share of bikinis may have shrunk to the increasing competition in the skimpy side of underwear like thongs and jockstraps, I believe that bikinis have many redeeming qualities and features that will keep them from ever fully going away. Long live the bikini brief!
