Stephanie Rice – How to look good in a bikini


Stephanie Rice looks fantastic in this photo she recently posted on Twitter

Here we go again, judging a woman’s character as unsavory simply because she looks good in a bikini and let the world know. Stephanie Rice is an Australian swimmer and a triple Olympic Champion world record holder. She looks amazing in bikinis.

As expected, some people are making a fuss about the photo (above) which she recently posted on twitter because they say “the bikini is too racy and brings the Australian swim team into disrepute.”  I am certainly not offended by the photo and find the bikini racy enough. Some people are always pretentiously offended by anything sexy and would prefer if all women wear several bolts of cloth 24-7. This type of controversy will not go away anytime soon. I am now truly encouraged that the Olympics, which starts next month in London, might not be as boring as all the other Olympics. Some say she did it for attention and I say I hope so, for the Olympics sake. There are reports that one of her sponsors, Speedo, might be concerned about the posted photo but I think they might be secretly delighted she has the looks.  I want to suggest that other female athletes who have appropriate bodies, post photos of themselves in bikinis as a way of improving the TV ratings of the Olympics, and to encourage more females to take up sports as a lucrative career as opposed to crowded and boring fields like hairdressing, lingerie modeling, accounting, medicine and law.

Latoya Woods – The New Miss Trinidad and Tobago Universe

Stunning winner: Miss T&T/Universe Latoya Woods during the swimsuit segment of the pageant on Sunday night at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad hotel in Port of Spain. - Photo: STEPHEN DOOBAY - Trinidad Express - I hope this is considered fair use by all concerned

Girls with long legs have a definite advantage over the shorter-leg variety as they are seen as being much more beautiful by men; it is a biological thing. Pretty girls are also thought of as being more desirable than unattractive ones as are rich men with loose wallets.

There is a photo of Latoya Woods, the new Miss Trinidad and Tobago Universe representative, in the Trinidad Express today showing Latoya lounging on a couch at The Hyatt – a couch I have favorably encountered in the past – and if you didn’t think she was a winner before, this photo will change your mind.  She is easily a stunner with her very pretty face, long legs and other exciting dimensions. I will probably post that photo later if  The  Express, and or, Latoya  promises not to take any legal, or other offensive and painful action, against me.

As I said in a previous post, it must be difficult to choose a Miss Trinidad and Tobago since we are a country full of pretty and exciting girls; some apparently more exciting than others but that is not for this post. I am not sure where or when the next Miss Universe competition will be held as Wikipedia is silent on that issue, but I will be keeping a keen eye on the new competitors, including the usually docile Miss Japan.

The Bikini in 2009 – Still Almost Naked

French automobile engineer, Louis Réard, should be the most famous engineer in the world since his invention, the bikini, positively transformed the lives of more men than any invention in the world, including the wheel, the sandwich loaf, and the  online porn.

According to Wikipedia, Réard came up with the idea for the bikini in 1947 when he was 50, not because he was a pervert, but while he was running his mothers lingerie shop and thought women looked better in public when in their underwear. He named his contraption the Bikini after the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific, a popular site for testing nuclear weapons at the time. He possibly came up with the name when he realized the bikini was capable of causing its own little nuclear explosions in secluded places.

The bikini has evolved since 1947 and is now also available in many styles and sizes – regular, small, micro, string and you-couldn’t-be-serious. Women wear the appropriate bikini  depending on the weather –  smaller bikinis are worn to create a hotter atmosphere.

The evolution of the bikini was not without controversy causing those with superior moral and ethical standards to object to women wearing the bikini since it caused men to feel an immoral tingly sensation and encouraged excessive public drooling.

Religious leaders have spent a considerable amount of time bad talking the bikini instead of praying,  saying it makes women look naked –  as if they would know a naked woman if they saw one. Because of the imagined  immorality of the bikini, some ethical men do not permit their wives, and women to wear bikinis in public but this is a blessing since the wives and women of the ethical and moral  are normally in poor shape and should avoid the bikini anyway.

The bikini was originally intended to be a swimsuit but now women wear bikinis while playing sports like volleyball to allow freedom of movement and to keep men glued to the TV screen.  Some women even wear bikinis while playing mas in Trinidad and Tobago, ignoring the call by the religious and the scared to not show off too much of their goods in public. On the other hand, photographers are not normally religious or even moral people so encourage bikini wearing during Carnival in order to  take as many bikini shots as their batteries and good sense would let them.

Many celebrities have been known to wear bikinis in public places to relive stress and attract the paparazzi. One good bikini shot in a secluded public beach with an unknown hunk can keep a celebrity in the news and the dollars for weeks.

The bikini, in 2009, looks like it is here to stay and like all living creatures, will evolve to suit its environment. It is clearly still an instrument to help the fittest survive.
