The bikini has changed tremendously over time. One and two piece swimwear was once called a bikini. They were offered in more than other swimwear. However, they were one basic design. If the bikini fit you well, great. You were ready to go. The reality for most women though was it did not fit their body shape. They often felt disappointed and self conscious upon making such a discovery. Today, the bikini comes in many forms and colors to meet the fashion demands of women everywhere.
