Yesterday there was a reportedly warm water temperature, so I ventured to the beach. I love to swim and play in the ocean, but of course the ocean off the coast of California is cold. Surfers here wear wetsuits, and even though there are times when the ocean is relatively warm, it's not Hawaii or the Gulf of Mexico... it's still mighty "refreshing" when you get into 69 degree water in a bikini! So I ventured out yesterday and jumped around in the water a bit.
My beach afternoon revealed to me that it's no longer enough to wear a bikini. No, the cheeky bikini bottom is now in fashion. I saw at least half the women on the beach with the new cheeky bottoms. Of course, these are nothing new... in panty form... it's just new to me to see them on the beach in California.
So far, the cheekiest thing by far that I wear in public is these short yoga shorts by Mika Yogawear. kinda cheeky shorts
They are really very short. But it's 104 degrees and 40% humidity in a Bikram yoga hot room, so no one cares. People are pretty much trying to survive the class, and they don't gawk. Plus we are all blinded by the stinging sweat dripping into our eyes!
I do like to be in fashion and I also think cheeky panties are really flattering, so I'm on the hunt to find modest cheeky bikini bottom. Yes, I realize this is something of an oxymoron, but perhaps a bottom that looks more like my yoga shorts than a thong panty, something nice people could actually see on the beach without feeling like they're in a strip club or rifling through a Victoria's Secret 5 for $25 panty table. Does this exist? We will find out!
