As we lounged on the beach sipping our Moijtos an Italian Jennifer Aniston came bouncing out of the water, pulling her lounge chair directly in front of us, and with flair removed her bikini top. My husband’s face began to turn beat red and he shut his eyes tight turning to look the other way.
The expression on his face revealed he was in an utter panic!
If I look she will make fun of me and write about it in her blog.
If I don’t look she will make fun of me and write about it in her blog.
It really was a no-win situation for him because of course I was going to write about it in my blog!
It was at that moment he let out a heavy sigh and exclaimed, “Would you like to go for a walk?”
In kindness I put down my Jackie Collin, slathered on the sunscreen, and took one last long sip of my Moijto. On our walk I began to put several things together based on nationality and swim wear. I could easily surmise the man in the blue thong was French Canadian, and the women in the string bikini was a modest Spaniard. It was on that journey I created my own classification of Swimsuit styles.
In my assumptions I would like to point out that I did have to classify some nationalities together such as The Europeans (French Canadian, French, Italian, and Spanish). As well I would like to clarify not all North Americans are orange, flashy peacocks, but many of us staying at the resort were trying to don that fake tan ( I would also like to point out Canadians are much different from Americans with our own colorful history and are always modest to point out that we did win the War of 1812).
Well, for the Brits, they are always the best to share a drink with but are very shy in their swimwear selection. My favorite, however, was the Russian Oligarch he sat by the beach everyday in his Daniel Craig shorts surrounded by two beautiful women and from the looks of things they were not his daughters.
In theory this chart is full of stereotypes and I am positive someone is going to scold me for being off the mark! Perhaps, not all Brits are modest, and maybe there is a shy French Man out there lounging on the beach. Who knows? What I do know is long as there is sunshine, a beach, there will be swimsuits, and everyone will have their own style!
Are you modest Brit? Or a flashy European with your swim suit style?
