Swimwear Question


Why do bikinis, tankinis, or swimsuits of any kind have belts?

I confess, I’m biased against accessories. I figure with 4 kids and 2 pets and a natural clumsiness,  it’s asking too much of me to also wear and keep up with earrings,  bracelets, belts, scarves, etc. Just not interested. (But they look real cute on you.)

So I REALLY don’t understand this one.  Do they look cute? The belted swimwear look?  I always see it and think, “what…? is there PURPOSE in that somehow that I am missing…?”  But that’s probably just the anti-accessory part of me. There’s no real purpose in most of them, I guess.

I think the belt on the bikini bottom is as ridiculous as a toe ring. If you are a huge fan of either or both of those, then by all means, explain it to me. I will listen and be enlightened.

(YES, I’ve been swimwear shopping and this is the detail I choose to dwell on, rather than the whole, UGH, gross really? we’re looking like THAT…? part that is inevitable with swimwear shopping. I think it’s a preferable alternative to focus on superfluous belts.)

Maybe all the belts and extra assesories actually do serve a purpose: to attract attention away from our deteriorating bodies.
If that’s the case, I need bells and whistles and a full blown circus attached to my swimsuit. ;)

Maybe they have accessories because people like Caden design them – he’s always had an appreciation for accessories of all kinds. Next up: tankinis that come with scarves and gloves!
