Swimsuit Approval Ratings: The String Bikini
I came across an article called "What Men Think of Your Bathing Suit." Apparently, Marie Claire asked 100 men to rate different styles of swimsuit. Just for fun, I thought I’d spend the next nine days counting down the nine styles, as featured on the bodies of SI models.
The String Bikini (74% approval rating)
‘One of the most popular swimwear styles on the market happens to be the one with the least amount of fabric. But what do men really think of the skimpy suit?
Seventy-four percent were fans of the triangles-and-string ensemble, while 26 percent thought it looked too revealing and left little to the imagination.’
