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 or whatever, I think it’s unprofessional for a company to do one with its employees. I mean, it’s an airline, not Hooters! Although I know the quality that I most appreciate in a flight attendant is her taut stomach. (Sarcasm again, people.) [NY Daily News]

Kate Gosselin In A Bikini On The Cover Of People

Behold, this week’s People magazine. On the cover, Kate Gosselin pulls a Kim Kardashian and dons nothing but a white bikini. After getting a tummy tuck, going on “Dancing with the Stars,” and getting into running, she says that, at 35, “this is the most fit I’ve ever been. I’ve worked really hard! Haven’t I earned the right, at this point, to look good?” What do you guys think—nice cover, or will her eight kids hate her for this when they get a little older? Keep reading »

Keep Your Hands Off My Bikini Top, Please

I don’t know? What do you say about something like this? A woman in a bikini top made out of plastic hands over her breasts? Heavy has compiled a list of the top 20 worst bathing suits, but I am going to have to declare this one the winner. It’s just … horrifying. To me, at least. I don’t know what to say other than keep your bikini top hands off me, please. [Heavy] Keep reading »

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. Nudity-free, but probably NSFW, unless your boss is down with soft core porn. [YouTube] Keep reading »

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. But there are a few women, like Kelly Rowland and Mexican singer/actress Paulina Rubio, who go beyond the simple swimsuit cover-up, romper, or slip dress, and actually plan an entire outfit for the beach.

Liberty Of London Does Print-Pretty Swimsuits

Liberty of London must know that Americans are having a full-on love affair with the oh-so-British brand. The designs, which made a big stateside impression this year thanks to a genius Target collaboration and a Mac makeup deal, are now available as swimwear at Neiman Marcus. The selection is small but well-rounded and exactly what you’d expect from the luxe label. Signature prints and festive patterns make their way onto string bikinis, bandeau tops, and even a sexy cut-out one piece. Perhaps even cuter are the summery cover-ups: there’s a lightweight minidress, an oversized button-down shirt, and our favorite, a pink floral caftan with an iconic red, white, and blue floral motif. Only drawback? This bunch of Liberty goods doesn’t come with Target price tags. Maybe they could get on this? Please? [Neiman Marcus] Keep reading »

Shauna Puts The “K” In Klassy

American “actress” and Playboy Playmate Shauna Sand manages to cram a number of trends–the iPhone, trucker cap, lucite stripper heels, animal prints and the it bag–all into one teensy weensy beach outfit. So multi-tasky! [Miami, 3/31/10] Keep reading »

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 [Global Post] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Bikinis 4 Babies!

  • When it comes to bikinis and abortion protesters, the blog posts just writes itself. Behold: “Millions of girls around the world need a great looking bikini to wear to the beach. Millions of babies around the world need to be saved from being brutally butchered. Bikinis 4 Babies combines these two needs by raising funds to help these innocent and defenseless children through selling some of the best looking bikinis, short sets, skirt sets, rompers & dresses at some of the lowest prices available anywhere.” It’s not quite as ridiculous as National Pro-Life Cupcakes Day, but it’s close!

    Miss California Pageant Takes Off The Swimsuits

    Beauty queens in next month’s Miss California Pageant (where everyone’s favorite homophobe, Carrie Prejean, got her start!) won’t strut down the runway in bikinis, but will instead model individual outfits. Sashes will also be eliminated and two winners will be crowned, instead of the usual one. ““This year’s event will be bigger and reflect the progressive attitudes of the contestants as well as our forward-looking state,” said Keith Lewis, executive director of the Miss California Organization. “It will change the essence of Miss California USA from a bathing suit beauty contest to the style of a runway show during fashion week.” Well, that’s not quite the same as ditching the high-heels-and-bikinis parade because it objectifies women’s bodies and applauds an ideal woman’s shape that most of us can never achieve. But, hey, we’ll take what we can get! You can probably still count on false eyelashes, clouds of hairspray and fake boobies, though. [NY Daily News, L.A. Times] Keep reading »
