DESIGN INSPIRATION

 

Bikinis are constantly evolving, just like mobile phones. They use to be bigger and wider, then they moved on to being smaller and narrower, lol. So I wanted something current and trendy! Sexy, modern, in-fashion, and most of all super easy to make.

This Gaia Brazilian bikini bottom is at the top of my sexy list. With slim sidebands and a Brazilian cut style that offers minimal tan lines and comfort. Can you swim in them, yes! Check out more details here on FAQ on Crochet Bikinis
