Microkini is also a Bikini!

Since the bikini was introduced in 1946, it has generated a number of variations, primarily smaller and more revealing than the original.

A microkini is an extremely skimpy bikini. The designs for both women and men typically use only enough fabric to cover the genitals. Any additional straps are merely to keep the garment attached to the wearer’s body. Some variations of the microkini use adhesive or wire to hold the fabric in place over the genitals. These designs do not require any additional side straps to keep the garment in place.

The most radical variations of the microkini are simply thin straps which cover little or none of the wearer’s body. The term “microkini” was coined in 1995 in an online community dedicated to enthusiasts of the extreme designs.

Microkinis keep the wearer just within legal limits of decency and fill a niche between nudism and conservative swimwear. In Europe it’s often allowed to wear the microkinis at the beach or hotel or public pools.
