A women's topless swimsuit consisting of a brief, close-fitting bottom.
Origin of monokini
French mono-mono-(bi)kinibikini (taken as a compound ofbi-bi-) (-kinisince a bikini has two pieces) bikini
While some might select a thong bikini and others choose a topless monokini, still others will choose a bikini that allows for mixing and matching just as easily as it allows for a fantastic tan.
A high cut monokini is unusual enough to stand out in an industry dominated by bikini styles and one-piece swimsuits, but is sexy enough to hold its own when compared to exotic G-string bikinis.
It included examples of the famous monokini and thong swimsuits, as well as a virtual fashion show and a media presentation of Gernreich speaking about his own designs and social philosophies.
The Deep V One Piece, also from Skinny Dip is more reminiscent of the original monokini.
The bikini-wearing regular actually made several appearances on the runway at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, and was also seen in a deep v-neck one piece monokini and a traditional halter-top bikini with embellished straps.
