Gwyneth Paltrow Blasted For Selling Little Girls’ Bikinis Over GOOP

To tell you the truth, I don't really give a shit that Gwyneth Paltrow is selling bikinis for little girls through her website, GOOP. Gwyneth Paltrow is also the person who suggested your spring wardrobe could use a $1,615 black skirt. She's not really the arbiter of sensibility or good taste, no matter how many…

Quiz: Guess The Celeb Nip Slip, The Teeny Bikini Edition (NSFW)

Sure, teeny bikinis are sexy, but they're very likely to leave you with a nip slip situation the very second a wave hits. Yet, celebs keep on wearing them to the beach, and getting photographed with exposed nip. Will they ever learn? Probably not. But their choice of swimwear has provided us with lunch time…

Girl Talk: The Things That Freak Me Out When I Think About Myself In A Bikini

I don’t want to write about bikinis. I want to write about the amazing blue cheese dressing I made with buttermilk! (For some reason, I think buttermilk is the coolest thing ever.) And the pizza I found myself absentmindedly dipping in it until I’d eaten a whole piece like that. I want to write about…

23 Celebs Rocking Out In Bikinis (Sans Photoshop!)

I don't know about you, but my bikini body doesn't look anything like the ones on the cover of In Touch ... unless we're talking about one of those "Pregnant Or Ate A Burrito?!" articles.

13 Reasons To Look Forward To Swimsuit Season

Summer is here and while we couldn't be more excited about long weekends at the beach, the thought of getting into a swimsuit can be decidedly less appealing. Whether it's pasty skin that isn't ready for public exposure, or a New Year's resolution of getting to the gym every day that didn't quite happen, we are here to ease…

11 Foodkinis You Probably Shouldn’t Swim In, But Can Definitely Snack On

I don't know about you, but being out in the sun for long stretches of time makes me very, very hungry. I would happily consider wearing a bikini that would both protect me from the sun and from hunger. So what if I can't wear it while I swim? At least I won't have to…

Awesomely Affordable: 13 Bandeau Bikinis That Don’t Cost A Fortune

You guys, I simply cannot stay silent for a moment longer. The cost of swimwear is too damn high! It's. Too. Damn. High. I'm going to Mexico in a month so I've been on the hunt for a new bikini to bring with me and wear basically 24/7 while I'm there. But I am seriously appalled by how much…

Rihanna’s Bandana Bikini

Since Katy Perry and Lady Gaga have outshone her of late in the alien-esque fashion, Crayola-colored hair department, it appears that Rihanna has decided to go a little bit country.

T&A That Can Get Past The TSA

RyanAir, the cheap-o European airline, has released its fourth calendar of ladies from its cabin crew frolicking on a tropical beach in bikinis. Proceeds from the 2011 RyanAir calendar, which costs $14, will be donated to a German kids' charity. While, personally, I don't care if women want to pose in bikinis for a calendar…

Bikini-Clad Stewardesses Scrub Down A Plane In A Russian Airline Commercial

Ugh, put this as Exhibit A in your "Objectification of Women" file: a commercial for Russian airline Avianova where sexy stewardesses strip down to bikinis on the tarmac, scrub down an airplane and suggestively drip soap suds all over their boobs. The kitschy scooby-dee-dooby-doo soundtrack is the only thing that doesn't make me wanna vom.

Do You Wear A Complete Look For The Beach?

For most people, the main goal when dressing for the beach is being able to disrobe easily and quickly so precious moments in the sun and water aren't lost.

Quotable: Bikinis, The Cause Of All Social Ills!

"You can't blame the locals; they have never seen such women. Foreign tourists must maintain a certain degree of modesty in their clothing. Walking on the beaches half-naked is bound to titillate the senses."— Pamela Mascarhenas, deputy director of tourism of Goa in India, after the alleged sexual assault of a 9-year-old Russian girl there…
