Can You Really Call A “Topless Bikini” A Bikini?
Behold Victoria’s Secret’s latest invention—the “topless bikini” as modeled by Lindsay Ellingson. How very European of them. The suit actually has a removable bandeau option, but the idea is to go without. Which would mean that essentially this is just a pair of panties with some fancy strings. On the Victoria’s Secret website, you can check out a video promo for the suit, the tagline for which is: “Half the bikini, twice as sexy.” Which, depending on who you are, might read as “Half the material, twice as shameful/cold/naked/slutty/expensive.”
