The Monokini was “invented by Rudi Gemreich in the 1960’s.  Rudi stated that he wanted to design a “unisex bikini with shoulder straps.” It seems like the Monokini is a swimsuit with an identity crisis-not a bikini, not a one piece? The Monokini must wonder-“Where do I fit in?” Fit my darling is the key in wearing the monokini-as in you better be fit! It’s not a fashion piece for the flabby or faint at heart.

The Monokini didn’t really catch on in the 60’s and try as it may to make a return to fashion it has sputtered in and out-mostly out, of the summer swimwear selections for more years than we can count. But guess what….it’s B.A.C.K…..With the recession in full throttle-Retailers are cutting costing and manufactures are cutting back on fabric so…Viola’- the return of the monokini. Is it a fashion trend or just a mere slip of the scissors in making the one piece bathing suit? Only you can make that call…
