      That’s funny, because they’re not really wearing anything

        April 9, 2013 at 1:26 am

        Agree. The colours in the photo are cold, and its disappointing that the focal point of the shot is a woman’s body surgically altered.

    It’s nice to see “real” figures in beachwear. Yes, they’re slim and sunkissed, but still definitely real. Unretouched. And confident and beautiful!

    • Isabelle

      April 8, 2013 at 11:36 am

      I think the “retouching” occurred prior to the photo being taken …

      But, in all seriousness, there’s enough plastic procedures out there, at least this blog gives us a break by offering “untouched” and un-photopshopped” pictures. It’s refreshing, and restoring faith in human beauty.

      • Emmanuel

        April 8, 2013 at 3:15 pm

        I agree with you Isabelle we could honestly suspect that the retouching has happened before the picture was taken :-)… Apart from that, great refreshing picture! It’s always interesting to see “normal people” with so many different styles on this blog…

        • Isabelle

          April 8, 2013 at 5:15 pm

          If “normal” means “standard”, they are certainly not, as they are models (re: Jill de Jong’s comments below).

          Still, I love this picture because if the light. It seems windy and not that hot … perfect for reading !

          • the clever pup

            April 9, 2013 at 6:52 pm

            yes there has been some help along the way here. Do people even know what “natural” looks like anymore?!

      • Sarah

        April 9, 2013 at 8:53 am

        Oh, I’m no judge of whether there have been surgical procedures performed in the past. And it doesn’t matter to me whether they’re models — okay actually, that makes it all the more interesting. Because there are shapes, textures, and shadings here (at least in the larger version of the photo) that we wouldn’t be allowed to see in a more commercial beachwear photo. These natural aspects of the human body make the photo more beautiful, refreshing, and encouraging to me than an eerie weirdly smooth and trim airbrushed photo would be.

    • LIZPR

      April 8, 2013 at 3:33 pm

      In defense of “think”, I hear what he/she is saying – that this isn’t really the best example of sartorialism, per se. There is simply not enough apparel to make it an actual “fashion photo” in the usual manner of this blog.

      This is more of a “snapshot of a moment”-type photo.

      So while scantily-clad bikini babes will definitely capture the attention and interest of some viewers, it will not particularly interest the majority of the readers – who are hard core fans of street fashion.

      • Caroline Bentley

        April 16, 2013 at 9:18 am

        Yes, it is. If you think of bathing suits all the way back through history you’ll see that this is totally about fashion. Most people really don’t get it… Stop envying the girls and try to see the whole picture, think of what it represents in the whole context.

    • Celia

      April 8, 2013 at 10:15 pm

      This is an example of classic summer style! This season–do you like to wear your breasts up or down?

    • smartypants

      April 8, 2013 at 11:56 pm

      why you have to throw in “white”…skin color should have nothing to do with how interesting or not interesting a person is…right?

      Some pics on Sartorialist are more interesting to me than others…it’s weird to me that you would take the effort to comment on this…just scroll to the next photo – it’s not offensive or anything…

      • Wendiek

        April 10, 2013 at 8:30 am

        I would guess “slim white women” are boring because we see so many of them in our media. Yawn.

    I love the light of this photo. I don’t understand some comments about the lack of style. I don’t think it’s always a matter of style and clothes, here, on Sartorialist. I see “moments”, some of them are poetic, in a certain way.

    I adore Miami. Yes it is full of fake breasts and butts for that matter but I miss the warmth and I miss the humidity and I miss the sunshine, the beach. No it’s not fashion but it makes me long for a dip in that ocean which is so so beautiful and a snooze on the lounger..

  63. Morgan

    April 8, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    I don’t like this. The white bikini top, and the big round breasts that it holds up, stands out and seems to be the focal point of the picture. I feel like a naughty little boy with my eyes drawn directly to her chest instead of appreciating the scene as a whole (I am a young woman btw, and I think breasts are very beautiful generally).

    Also, I visit this site to gain inspiration from the street style, so perhaps that’s why I have no love for this picture.

    April 9, 2013 at 10:21 am

    I agree with the above posters that, while it is a pleasant beach scene, there’s nothing particularly stylish about it. It is “authentic” only in the sense that it realistically portrays Miami, which has among the highest rates of cosmetic augmentation in the world.

    • Diane

      April 9, 2013 at 3:20 pm

      I don’t think jealous is the right word for how people are responding. Anyone can get their boobs done. I think the responses have more to do with the obsession of plastic perfection instead of real beauty and style being celebrated . Isn’t that really what this website is about ?

  73. Liz

    April 9, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    I agree with Morgan. All I see are big breasts in a plain looking white bikini. Otherwise, it’s kind of a generic beach shot. There’s nothing interesting about their expressions, and that’s not a very flattering angle for the girl in black’s face. She’s obviously really pretty, but here her jaw looks distorted.

    I’m sure straight men love this one, but I’m not really feeling it. If the bikinis weren’t super plain, I’d probably like it more, as I could use some beachwear inspiration.

    This photo represents “lifestyle” to me. Fashion is part of a lifestyle. And this is a very nice lifestyle :)

    Hey folks, the comments on whether someone’s boobs are “original” or “added later” are really horrible! Newsflash: they come in various shapes and sizes, and just because they don’t look like yours (unless you’re lucky!), it doesn’t mean it’s okay to be spiteful and speculate about their origin. Maybe they’re real, maybe they’re not, but suggesting that they’re not just because they look awesome is really uncool. It’s also incredibly anti-woman!

    Beautiful photo! Plastic surgery or not, both women look like they’re enjoying themselves and that’s the most important thing. When you’re in a beach as beautiful as the South Beach, I don’t think you’d have time to think of whether the girl next went under the knife.

    This reminds me of a Pre-Raphaelite painting of mermaids I once owned ( a poster not the original!). Does anyone know the one I mean? They are posed just so, and the figures are very similar. If anyione can figure it out tell me the painter.

        April 11, 2013 at 2:08 pm

        You are complexed? I can understand. I am complexed about my “bottom”. What helps a great deal, is not to wear something two sizes too small, so it does not attract attention to its size. Plus it does not look as thoughI was screaming – look over there everyone!

            Models’ bodies are their “working tool”. They must be seen and noticed and conform to a specific idea of beauty, especially in the USA.

            So even if the look of the person is “fake”, as many here think, this picture is a very “natural” image, when placed in its context.

    I challenge you to snap a photo of a beautiful curvy woman at the beach. A la Christina Hendricks in a swim suit. I’m in Miami right now and I know they’re out there.

    .. all fashion starts here, doesn’t it?
    the beauty of the human form. relaxed. comfortable in one’s own skin.

    how to dress that. how to reveal yet retain mystery. show natural grace yet a changing facade– the ability to be true to oneself and still transform.

    they’re the inspiration for it all

    I’m both amazed and disappointed at the number of commenters who have the nerve to judge a creation (the photo, the website, the talent, etc) which is not their own as if it were their own.

    Constructive criticism (whether positive or negative) is one thing, but negative, judgmental opinions based on one’s personal morals or standards are a whole other thing. If you fall into the second camp then you have a choice to move on to something that doesn’t offend. But to urge or insinuate that the creator (again, whether its the photographer, webmaster or the talent) needs to change his or her approach is a bit selfish.

    Wow, this is an amazing shot. We love the brightness of the uncomplicated and contrasting colors – the black and white bathing suits really add to the picture! Another great white suit is the Zig Zag Mesh One Piece by Anne Cole. The simple style and beautiful white are enough to make anyone’s head turn.
