The white bikini had much attention during the release of the first James Bond film, Dr.No. Who could forget that image of Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder, coming out of the sea in a white bikini? The bikini was a simple two-piece, however, the allure of its color made it simply timeless and sexy. From the 1940’s to 2010, the must-have alluring classic white bikinis have secured its place in summer wardrobes. Somehow, there is something endlessly appealing about the color white; youthful, innocent and sweet.
As sexy as it is, it is not going to be a pretty sight if your white bikini is made of cheap fabric, has little or no lining. As we all know, white, when wet, can be transparent. Fret not, as most swimwear designers these days understand the problem and have improved their linings to avoid the unnecessary attention while doing a Honey Ryder impression.
