Beautiful Bikini Girls & Their Equally-Stunning Swimsuits
From beach babes to the runways of Paris, bikinis are everywhere. This wasn’t always the case; there once was a time when wearing a two-piece was considered too risque.
But with strides in feminism and female empowerment, the bikini became a symbol for women’s emancipation and freedom. The “sexy” bikini girls of decades past paved the way for the women of today. Nowadays, in most of the world, women can wear really skimpy swimsuits and micro bikinis without fear.
Sexy bikinis are more than a fashion piece. They’re a fashion statement – they say that women can wear whatever makes them feel confident; society’s conservatism be damned!
Famous Hot Bikini Girls Throughout History & Pop Culture
Before 1946, Micheline was just a nude dancer in Casino de Paris. But on July 5th, she made history as the first-ever model of the modern bikini, mostly because no other model dared to do so. Dubbed “smaller than the smallest bathing suit in the world”, it was the first bikini to reveal a woman’s navel.
When Brigitte Bardot was photographed wearing a bikini on the beaches of Saint-Tropez, it boosted both the profile of the nearby Cannes Film Festival and Bardot’s own career. It even turned Saint-Tropez into the bikini capital of the world.
The original sex symbol, Marilyn Monroe was bold enough to show off her gorgeous hourglass curves whenever she got the chance. Although her most famous outfit is the skin-tight “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” dress she wore to sing to then-US president John F. Kennedy, her swimsuits (like this classy high-waisted white bikini) got their fair share of attention too.
Carrie Fisher As Princess Leia
Okay, technically it’s not real swimwear, but Princess Leia’s gold bikini is perhaps one of the most iconic women’s bikinis of all time. When Fisher strutted out in this metal number in Return of the Jedi in 1983, it surely awakened many young boys’ (and some girls’) sexualities.
Ursula Andress As Honey Ryder
The classic scene involving a woman emerging from the ocean in a sexy bikini is a common trope today, but it all started with Honey Ryder from the 1962 James Bond film Dr. No. The belted bikini has been named one of TIME’s Top 10 Bikinis in Pop Culture, and was sold for $61,500 at an auction.
Modern Celebrity Bikini Girls Pics
Emily Ratjakowski is no stranger to stripping down for the ‘gram. Here she is in a skimpy string bikini – which according to her IG feed, she has in pretty much every colour!
Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio flaunted her assets in a nude Brazilian bikini while vacationing in Greece. If we looked like that, we’d probably do the same thing too!
See-through bikinis like this one on R&B singer Christina Millian are equally sexy yet covered-up. Millian’s curves are on full display without ever revealing too much.
Before she became the Duchess of Sussex, actress Meghan Markle didn’t shy away from showing some skin. Here she is in a super-cute watermelon crochet bikini. We think it’s a perfect 10, but we’re not sure the Queen would approve.
Plus-sized beauty Ashley Graham may be busy redefining what beauty means, but she somehow still has time to design an incredible body-positive swimsuit collection. This black bikini is just one of many from her collab collection with Swimsuits For All.
Oops, she did it again. Britney Spears recently posted a pink bikini pic that shows off her incredible body – which still looks just as fantastic as it did when she debuted over two decades ago.
The centre of the Kardashian empire is famous for her rocking bod, which this black and red bikini effortlessly shows off. Kim K herself has posted pictures of herself in varying degrees of undress (including several strategically-censored nude photos). And every time she does, the world just eats it up!
No matter what you think about her music or the constant drama that seems to surround her, there’s one thing we can all agree on: Taylor Swift looks amazing in red. She definitely fits right in with her model squad.
If there’s one thing we can learn from these sexy celebs and bikini girls, it’s this: a good bikini can boost your confidence like nothing else.
Whether you prefer racy thong bikinis or vintage high-waisted two-pieces, what matters the most is that you feel sexy and confident in your own skin.
