‘Naked bikini’ is now a thing – but you’ll have to be very, very brave to wear it

If capturing the perfect photo for the ‘gram is at the forefront of every occasion, the new ‘naked bikini’ might be a way to up your likes.

Definitely not for the faint-hearted, the swimwear piece will certainly allow you to make an impression on the beach or by the pool.

And for those who absolutely hate the idea of tan marks but aren’t willing to venture to a naked beach to perfect your glow, this could also be right up your street.

The bold swimwear company Minimale Animale launched its ‘naked bikini’ last year with the half Australian and half Trinidadian model Tammy Hembrow and the result was some very tiny swimming costumes.



This bikini doesn’t leave much to the imagination

While some people love the bold look, others have been left wondering if you can actually call it a bikini.

The ‘Splendor Suit’ is a Tammy Hembrow exclusive and perfectly fit the brands risque 80’s and 90’s swimwear inspiration.

And as long as you have £100 to spare (ouch…) it could be yours .

With this hefty price tag you’re not wrong to expect some pretty amazing quality.

It’s made from nylon and spandex and comes in a stunning, galactic iridescent purple colour – which is definitely Instagram-worthy.

It screams ‘business in the front and party in the back’ vibes, with material covering all the relevant parts at the front and much less in the back.

Everything is attached in a criss cross design at the back, to give shoppers that well-loved high leg illusion.

But is definitely not for the faint hearted.

The costume ranges in sizes from USA XS A-B cup, Med B-D cup and Large C-D cup and XL no cup size stated.

25-year-old model Tammy rose to fame on her Instagram , posting workout videos to her 10 million followers and her 1.2 subscribers on YouTube.

The mum-of-two has even been named the motivation behind Khloe Kardashian’s post baby bod.

But this isn’t the only brand that have shocked its shoppers with its new bikini styles, Pretty Little Thing has been called out a couple of times for it’s swimsuits.

Last year, one shopper purchased one of their premium swimsuits but was shocked that her hands were “stained blue like a smurf” after the water turned blue with the dye.

But when she had a look at the small print, it said you couldn’t actually swim in it and it’s for ‘poolside posing’ only.
