Frey Revolution

Beach weather is far off, but if you see a good bikini it's always a good time to check it out. And Undercover Lingerista has an excellent article on the Freya Revolution, a new strapless bikini. So if you're heading someplace warm this New Years, give it a look.

Although I am a convert to cup sized swimwear, a part of me does pine for the gorgeous strapless and bandeau bikinis found on the high street.

But there's so much of it and most of it is completely alien to us, that it's hard to know where to start or what to research. Well if you're interested in researching your fashion history, Vintage Fashion Guild has an interesting fashion timeline, from 1800 on.

"The fashion canvas of the 18th century changed radically as the 19th century began and simpler, lighter brushstrokes were applied. Fashion in the first two decades mimicked classical Grecian drapery with its fluid lines. Bodices were minimal, cut to end under the bust thereby achieving a high waist that defined the silhouette."
