Beach Babes

27 05 2008

Since Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, I thought I’d skip the lingerie post today and talk about something more appropriate. Though, I suppose one could argue that swimwear is the lingerie of the beach, so on with the post!

Ladies, it’s swimsuit season!

Yes, I know…the two most dreaded words in fashion. But, it doesn’t have to be that way in SL. There are thousands of cute swimsuits out there to be had and, of course, I’m going to show you a couple after the jump.

This Gothy Bikini is the first swimsuit I bought in SL. A couple of friends took me to Canimal, and though I wasn’t looking to buy a swimsuit, I just could not leave the store without it. I love the belts under the bust and around the waist. The mesh middle lends a very sexy accent as well.


Reaction Girls came out with what has to be my favorite bikini set to date: Skullies. I adore the little crossbones on the back of the thong bottoms, and it comes with board shorts, which I wore to a Beach Party at MDR last week. They are super cute, and great when you want a little bit more cover than the thong bikini bottoms provide. I also got the most adorable thong sandals there. They were too cute to pass up.

My third swimsuit is a new release from PixelDolls: Gloss. The VIP group recieved this very sexy and shiny swimsuit in Indigo and while that is not usually my color, I thought it went very well with my platinum blonde hair. While quite a traditional suit, the details in SL are hard not to notice: the bottoms look as though they would love to slip away, and the prim tie in the back lends an uncommon level of realism.
After a busy day at MDR, I decided to take these suits out to the beach to see how they held up and they looked great while I frolicked in the water.

And soaked up some rays…


My friend Rhodesy Durant showed up and I encouraged her to join me in soaking up some of those SL rays. She donned one of her favorite suits, the O2D Sequined Bikni she snagged from Oxygen Designs. It’s purple and glittery, made of sequins, and very her. We had a ton of fun playing in the surf and showing off our fabulous suits. Yay for summer!


Oh, don’t forget to get your corset mix and match entries into me by Tuesday evening. (Please see my previous post for more details.) I will post the top three entries in my post on Thursday, so be watching the blog to see if your photo ends up in the blog!
Hope you had a nice Memorial Day!
