Unleash Beauty with Monokinis

A two-piece bikini can be too revealing, while a one-piece is too bland. If you’re feeling uncomfortable or simply looking for something more than these two kinds of regular swimsuits, you should check out a monokini, the perfect balance between the two. 

A monokini exposes just the right amount of skin to make you feel sexy while also covering the right amount. There are a plethora of designs and shapes that make this a trendy fashion statement in the swimwear industry. Let’s look at more details on monokinis and why you should add them to your collection.

The origin of Monokinis

The term “monokini” was introduced by Rudi Gernreich, an Australian fashion designer, in 1964. It started as a pair of high-waisted briefs with two thin straps attached in the center of the waistline, which halters the neck. This original design totally exposes the breasts. Through the years, the design has evolved into something more fashionable and practical.

Monokinis today

This one-piece bathing suit has transformed significantly throughout the years and extended from the shoulders or the bust down to the bottom of the buttocks. Designers have given monokinis wide varieties like halters, cut-outs, open-back, low-back, single-shoulder, plunge and sleeves. Some can also include many straps. 

It all depends on the coverage you want, as monokinis offer something for everyone. The latest models include embellishments, prints, side cut-outs, color blocking, fancy frills and many others.

The difference between Monokini, Bikini ,and One-piece Swimwear

A monokini is a piece of clothing that falls between a regular swimsuit and a bikini. A bikini is a two-piece fabrics, with one piece covering the breasts and the other covering the bottoms. It’s a brief and bra set for swimming.

A one-piece swimsuit covers from shoulder to buttocks and even down to the thighs and knees. Some even come with a skirt. These single-piece swimsuits can also be sleeveless, full-sleeve or half-sleeved.

On the other hand, a monokini is a single-piece garment that’s skimpier than your regular bikinis with a V-cut bottom. It usually shows more skin and features cut-outs, halter necks, plunging necklines, and halter necks. It’s basically two-piece clothing joined together by thinner panels and strings or cloth. 

Why should you wear a Monokini?

Monokinis are excellent for women who want to wear something that isn’t too revealing yet still looks sexy and fashionable. It’s a great option if you aren’t comfortable wearing a bikini. Monokinis are also a great swimwear style that keeps up with the fashion trend, especially for women who don’t want to hang out in a bikini but still want to make a trendy fashion statement. 

Today, fashion designers have come up with many different ways to make this style work. It’s currently one of the most popular swimsuit trends, whether a full-sleeve sporty-looking monokini or a bare-backed & stringy model for all the divas out there.
