String Bikini Girls Who Switch To Tankini Swimwear Designs

We’re here at the International String Bikini Girls contest interviewing the contestants about to compete in this year’s event and also talking with the previous year’s winners. There’s anticipation in the tropical air as Randy Horner, our international correspondent approaches the contestants:

Randy Horner: Candy, I understand you’re one of the top contenders for winning first prize in this year’s String Bikini Girls contest. What’s brought you this far in your career?

Candy: Well Randy, it’s all about dedication to internal metaphysical concepts that permit the flow of energy from the subconscious to extend outwardly to the fleshly shell of our impermanent bodies. It’s while forgetting the path of a career that a truly fulfilling lifestyle can emerge in harmony with nature and the true self, which is in fact nonexistent, but one with the universal everything that is all nothing.

Randy Horner: Ahhhaaa…thanks….and now…Angelica, how do you feel about your chances of winning this year’s String Bikini Girl’s contest?

Angelica: That’s something all of us have given much thought to, Randy. It really comes down to the principals of ying yang where there is neither good or evil but a blend of the two that is by nature part of us all and yet without an individual “I”. After discussing this with the other contestants, we all agree that it’s not about winning a title or failing to do so, but about the journey each of us girls takes as we walk the path toward our eventual physical demise.

Randy Horner: Ahhh…ya….and now…let’s move on…and have a word with last year’s winner. Miss, Mandy, I notice that you’re not attired in a bikini as you were last year. What has causes you to switch from being a Bikini Girl to a Tankini Swimwear promoter?

Mandy: My switch from the string bikini in favor of tankini swimwear designs has been a natural evolution toward the freedom of movement that was previously restricted by strings that crept into places that were difficult to adjust in public. With the newest tankini swimwear styles, I’ve become more actively involved in …almost everything… instead of being a mere spectator or life. I felt that while I was a bikini girl, I was inhibited, and therefore was in need of exposing myself to prove I was free. Yet, now that I know I’m free,

I can choose to cover myself and still retain the sense of liberation that nudity was unable to proffer.

Randy Horner: Aha…right…and…oh…I see the first string bikini girls have taken their places on stage, but there’s some kind of commotion. It appears the judges are about to expel one of the contestants who is….just a minute…yes, it’s true. They claim she’s inappropriately attired in a tankini swimwear outfit that offers full frontal coverage of the abdomen…aha…that’s it. I’m approaching the scene now, and …yes…….the contestant wearing a tankini has been disqualified…

Pros & Cons of the Strapless Bra

Every woman should have a strapless bra in her wardrobe. They are essential when you need support without wanting to show off bra straps, perhaps when wearing an evening gown or a top with spaghetti straps. See through straps on bras are another option, but they are never as invisible as you would like. And unless you are small chested, don’t even think about going braless. A bra is needed for modesty and to improve shape and cleavage.

On the downside they are typically more pricey than normal bras and can leave women feeling bare and exposed. If you choose to wear one, don’t feel self conscious – be confident with your sexy new look. As they are designed to form fit the women who wear them, designing a practical bra has been a challenge for manufacturers due to the variations of women’s shapes and sizes. Often either too big or too small, some women tend to fall in between available sizes and the bra does not provide the correct fit. This results in the bra slipping down or falling off entirely. See our buying guidebelow to ensure this doesn’t happen to you. Some strapless bras can also be uncomfortable due to the boning and elastic required to hold them in place. Check out our top picks above for those tried and tested for comfort.

Strapless Bra Buying Guide To Find The Perfect Fit

A correctly fitting strapless bra should be horizontal across the chest and not ride up in the back. The bra should be firm but comfortable and not dig into the chest or breast areas. The underwire should lie flat in the front against the sternum and the cups should enclose the breasts with a smooth line where the fabric at the top of the cup ends. The nipple must be centered in the cup and the breast should not bulge out over the tops or sides. The back of the strapless bra should not ride up but remain parallel to the ground and support the breasts with the band around the rib cage. And, the wearer should be able to breathe and move easily without the bra slipping or falling down.

Nylon Socks – When and Wear to Wear Them

Nylon socks are hosiery made of nylon that is worn on the feet, directly on the skin. There are different lengths of socks available and different qualities of nylon that the socks are made of. Nylon socks are readily available for purchase and the prices differ according to the quality of the nylon and the design of the socks themselves. These socks are worn on different occasions depending on their length and what kind of nylon has been used to make them.

Nylon as a Material

Nylon is a fabric that is made of artificially made nylon fiber; the material is extremely soft but also extremely strong. The manufacture of nylon can be manipulated to make different qualities of the material. The important properties of the material – its elasticity and its softness – are present in all types of nylon, but in different degrees.

The properties of nylon make it the right fabric to make socks with. Nylon socks are worn for their elastic property and their unequaled comfort. They are great to wear with sneakers or other closed shoes, as they are extremely comfortable; they can also be worn with open shoes or slippers as a fashion statement because many of the socks available today are great to look at.

Different Lengths of Socks

The style of the socks you wear depends on the length of the socks. There are different lengths in socks available – ranging from bare socks that make your feet look like they do not have any socks on, to socks that reach up to your mid-thigh. Each of these socks is worn for different occasions.

Bare socks are great to wear with open shoes when you need some sort of cover for your feet but the kind of shoes you’re wearing don’t look so great with socks. Ankle length socks are also worn with shoes – or slippers – or just to keep your feet warm. Calf-length or knee-length socks can be worn outdoors or when you’re playing sports. If the socks are good looking, you can even show them off with a great pair of shoes. Anything that’s above the knees keeps your legs warm in cold weather.

Web Design Process

Xtde was one of the first companies in the web design arena to identify the need for a process based development and testing approach. While well defined development processes existed for software development, the life cycle of a web site design project was largely a vague process at best. Xtde has leveraged on years of experience to arrive at a robust design process

Following is a very brief description of our current web design process and project life cycle, The process undergoes a routine review and optimization in order to incorporate the companies latest leanings

The stages consist of the following elements :

This stage is an information gathering and objective definition stage. It is vital that the goals are clearly defined both for the project and for the website in general. This stage will also involve decision making about vital element like what information and content is already available and what will need to be generated or procured, also decision will be taken about the most optimal way of presenting the information within sections (also known as a sitemap). This stage will see a lot of consulting and advice from XTDE in regards to what more can be done with a website, besides just putting up an online brochure. This stage would be complete once both parties sign off on the goals and objectives.

This stage consists of a brainstorming session to arrive at ideas to best achieve the objectives as defined in the Scope stage, The stage will produce several elements that will later form the basis of the web site. A few examples of these elements are :

  • Wireframes. Architectural diagram representing a page.
  • Prototype. Visual sample of a page, either on paper or on screen with no interactivity.
  • Briefs. Documents the project, audience, goals, and objectives as well as describes how the design addresses these issues.
  • Comps. Mock-up pages showing how the Web site will look, offering several options (from color schemes to layout).
  • Flow. Process diagram showing the how the Web pages connect to each other.
  • Sketches. Informal hand-drawn drawings to brainstorm the layout of a Web page. Sketches has been used to mean the same thing as prototype.

Also the timelines and deliverables thereof are defined and agreed upon in this stage for the entire project. Client tasks are allocated for procuring and providing assets like company logo graphic, internal photographs and voids are identified and alternative plans are made.

This stage involves producing sample sketches of the homepage for the perusal of the client. We will also decide on the hosting options best suited for the stated goals (as defined in Scope stage). We will work with the feedback proved by the client (in an iterative fashion) to further refine the sketches and arrive at a final layout. A skeleton (blank but clickable site) of the inner pages will be developed based on the main page design.
This stage will also consist of populating the site with relevant content, the content will be obtained in consultation with the client, However minor optimizations will be carried out on the content for use with the website. This stage will also involve coding of any online forms and setting up of e-mail id’s etc. The end result of this stage will be a near complete website.

This stage will see comprehensive testing by XTDE to ensure that the website will appear correctly on all Operating system platforms like Linux, Windows and Mac. Testing will also be done to ensure compatibility with major browsers like IE and Netscape. Finally testing will also be done on various screen pixel resolution and monitor sizes. XTDE will also undertake optimization in this stage to ensure that the site is usable by search engines by including Keywords, descriptions and META tags; XTDE has extensive experience in the area. Optimization will also be undertaken on images across the site to ensure quick download and presence on ALT tags (for image search engines like google)

The site will be uploaded to the live server and final Quality assurance testing will be done. All links and formail scripts will undergo stress (in case of databases load testing will also be done) and regression testing. The site will be submitted to over 300 Search engines via an automated script (custom submissions can also be done if desired)

Other General Points

As a practice XTDE builds site that are extremely easy to maintain using the latest technologies in the world today like, CSS style sheets, DWT templates, XML internationalization and SSI (server side includes), This means that should our clients decide to make modifications in the future (usually websites undergo major changes every 6 months), the cost incurred would be minimal. xtde will handover of all the above site assets in the form of a CD. Additionally all passwords like mail admin and FTP will also be handed over to clients.
