What Men Think About Bikinis

14Jun10

Swimsuit season is stressful enough when women are tasked with finding swimwear that’s both fashionable and flattering. But what does he think about all your hard work? Marie Claire asked 100 random guys about some of the most popular swimsuit trends — and their answers may have you reconsidering that new bikini in your beach bag.

Want some swimsuit-shopping inspiration? Check out these 76 bikinis for all shapes, sizes, and budgets.

The String Bikini

One of the most popular swimwear styles on the market happens to be the one with the least amount of fabric. But what do men really think of the skimpy suit? 74 percent were fans of the triangles-and-string ensemble, while 26 percent thought it looked too revealing and left little to the imagination.

The Standard Two-Piece
Guys’ most favored suit was the basic two-piece bikini. A bit more material — while still showcasing some serious skin — meant a whopping 91 percent approval rating among men (and several said the look most closely resembled women in bras and panties…). Only 9 percent didn’t like the cut.

The Monokini
Women wanting to make a statement on the beach may opt for the monokini — a one-piece suit in which the sides are completely cut out, giving the appearance of a bikini, with the top and bottom sections connected by a thin strip of material. Guys, however, prefer to opt out. Only 22 percent liked the look. The most common response of the 78 percent who hated it? “I don’t get it.”
