The bikini has been striking fear in the hearts of women since its invention in 1949, but it looks like those days are numbered. In a 2013 study, 53 percent of U.S. women surveyed said they were planning to wear a one-piece swimsuit over the summer while 29 percent said they were going to sport a tankini. Surprisingly, only 18 percent opted for a bikini. What does that tell us? On the beach, more really is more. Amen to that.
