Well... in my opinion they're quite revealing and doesn't look practical at all. It ultimately depends on how the wearer behaves. If she seems to fish for attention, then it's just no taste (just doing it to make guy look), but if she wears it because she wants to and she feels sexy in it then why stop her? And chances are she does indeed look sexy. And i imagine using one would be a very effective way to give your BF something to look at, if that's your intention.
But in short; i don't really mind, but you need to know when it's apropriate, and how it's apropriate to wear em. If you know that, then it can indeed be good.
I've been noticing more and more stuff like that on the beaches around the Med and the Black Sea over the last few years. I think it's a good trend - they look good on most girls, and I think it encourages a more confident, body conscious image. I also think more girls are realising that they don't have to be supermodel replicas to look nice in stuff like this.
B = not my taste but OK to be revealing It seems few really "fit" most gals, so I view these as another ill designed fad passing through and eventually gals will say why wear these uncomfortable fits now that the ogle factor is not special anymore. e. g. after searching for a suit that looks good on a gal, only one in 30 witnessed looks like a good fit www.brazilian-bikinis.org/.../2306_green.jpg
Save the money buy a bikini/thong bottom and if the top doesn't fit, then wet T-shirt or topless
well it depends on if there are other girls who wear them too. I mean Im from Greece and there all the girls are wearing these so if I wear one I dont think it will be a problem ;) But honestly I wouldn't wear one around my family.. I thinj is inappropriate but with friends.. no. problem at all
