It wasn’t until we accompanied a friend to a Mara Hoffman sample sale a few summers ago that we realized the extent to which a certain type of lady really loves her a Mara Hoffman swimsuit. We got shoved aside and trampled on in a way we never had at any sample sale, and we were legit scarred for a few days. So we were excited when we noticed that there were all of a sudden a lot of Mara Hoffman one-pieces and bikinis on sale, which you
can order from the comfort of your own home without any fear of someone stepping on your ankle.
Scantily-clad female inmates have held a drug and booze-filled party inside prison with many snorting what looks like cocaine.
With music pumping the girls are seen passing round drugs, drinks and posing for selfies on their forbidden mobile phoned.
Most are dressed up with their hair and nails done, with some wearing hot pants and bikinis, while others show off their raunchy lingerie.
The mobile phone clip was shot by one of the girls serving time at Curado prison complex in Recife, in north eastern Brazil.
Women in Geneva will now be allowed to swim topless in the city’s iconic lake and Rhone River.
A rule dating from 1929 was overturned by Geneva’s regional council after a petition of just 233 signatures was raised against it.
However, the change does not apply to public swimming pools or swimming naked.
Late last week, affordable basics brand Grana — if you’re not familiar, the Hong Kong label’s style (and price point!) falls somewhere between Uniqlo and Everlane — launched new swimwear for both men and women, and it’s cute.
The men’s collection includes three swimshort styles in a bunch of colors and a few simple prints: a 4-inch tailored trunk, a drawstring trunk, and a 6.5-inch tailored trunk. The women’s collection is more extensive, with two different one-pieces (a deep-V and a scoop back), three bikini bottom styles (high-waisted, regular briefs, and string-tie briefs), and four bikini top styles (bandeau, triangle top, racer-front halter, and bralette-style) that you can mix and match, all available in black and two colors that feel very 2017: olive green and a pale, beige-y pink.
The look of all the suits totally hits the minimalist swimwear nail on the head, echoing those hyper-popular solid-colored one-pieces we’ve seen from brands like Nu Swim, Her, and Baserange — but at a much, much more affordable price point.
Take a look at the a few of our favorites from the collection below, or shop them all on Grana’s site.
