A halter-neck monokini that is missing something crucial, say it’s top, is sure to turn heads. Thus Victoria’s Secret naming of it as the topless bikini, while accurate, simply lacks the impact that the advertising campaign promises (and delivers). Topless bikini? Just too simple. So may I instead proffer up the ‘half-kini’ as modelled by Lindsay Ellingson.
Visual impact and appropriate naming aside, it’s barely-there cut ensures that this particular Victoria’s Secret swimwear design is perfectly in line with 2010 bikini trends.
Impractical without it, Victoria’s Secret have been kind enough to supply a padded bandeau with the halfkini.
It comes from their 2010 swimwear collection, more of which you can peruse by clicking on the picture thumbnails below. If you’d rather fixate on Lindsay Ellingson in a topless bikini, however, watch the video below first.
