Swimsuits, especially bikinis, can be a tad predictable. After all, what more can you do with 4 triangular cuts of fabric that cover a woman’s prized areas? Well, the fundamental design can be tweaked. Add a little of this and that, a link here, a detail there, and voila (!) – a new bikini is born! But, isn’t there anything else that can be done for the bikini?
We’re not complaining about cuts. The cuts are outstanding, especially on bikini mavens like Kim Kardashian. But, the tweaks aren’t good enough anymore. So, we’re going to compare, the usual Kardashian Bikini Babe style to an emerging bikini look that is gaining popularity in other parts of the globe.
The mesh texture is interesting enough. And anything will look good on Kim Kardashian. But it hardly wows when it comes to impact. This has been the type of bikini that’s been rolling out of lux stores and Target. Nice, but “blah.”
The bikini color is striking, and Kim Kardashian’s body is certainly built to wear a bikini. But despite the striking color of her swimsuit, this design just seems to meld into the other bikinis she owns. Tweak the color, add a little detail, perhaps include some interestingly colored piping and another bikini is born. But, it’s not a unique look.
A few links won’t make this bikini look any different from the others, though it looks absolutely hot, and the cut is, as usual, perfect. Kim Kardashian doesn’t need to increase her foxy factor, she has loads where that came from, but her bikini style is seriously getting tired.

She thinks that bikinis don’t have to keep on with a one dimensional style. There is still much that can be done with the small strips of fabric that make up the bikini.
