Actress, model and online comedian Amanda Cerny shows us how the styles of bikinis and one pieces changed dramatically between decades.
The Hollywood based blogger and Playmate teamed up with Breathless Resort and Spa in the Dominican Republic to show just how far swimwear has come in the last century.
In an age where so many young women can become world famous lingerie and swimsuit models by simply creating an Instagram photo sharing account, it is funny to hark back to a time when even beach attire was modest and concealed most of the female form.
Take a look at the evolution of beachwear, from waterproof breaches at the turn of the century, to the radical introduction of a two piece, and high cut athletic inspired one pieces.
All swimwear and beachwear featured is from the summer 2015 Virginia Macari Beachwear Couture collection, available exclusively from virginiamacari.com
Now that the recession is almost over, people can feel free more once to go on foreign holidays without guilt. Am I right or am I right? You might think that Irish designer Virginia Macari and her controversial Nordic love-god husband Kas Dahl have no pressing need of some hols as they live in sunny Marbella. Be that as it may, they and their young Thor are jetting to the South of France in July for some more sun, sea and sand. They will stay in St Tropez for a week, combining a bit of work (Virginia's new swimwear collection) with play. In the meantime, Virginia and Kas were spotted dining a deux recently in Villa Tiberio on Marbella's Golden Mile. Last weekend, the couple were in Finca Besaya up on the hill overlooking Marbs with four (only four?) friends. Maybe, on second thoughts, Virginia and Kas don't need a holiday on the French Riviera?
It's hard to believe, but that time of year is almost upon us again: in a matter of weeks, the children will be off school. With eight weeks to fill, many parents will be looking for some way to entertain their energetic brood which doesn't involve breaking the bank or indeed breaking a sweat as the constant refrain of 'I'm bored' threatens to reach saturation.
