Made famous by the actress Jane Birkin in the 1969 film La Piscine, this style of bikini, with its oversized resin O-rings, is hereby revived with the following upgrades: 

Without compromising the magically seamless appearance of the triangles, with no visible anchor points around the top's O-ring, I have managed to incorporate a continuous, strong, under bust band. Every Pride swimsuit, no matter how skimpy, should be suitable for body surfing, at least.

You will also find small O-rings in the backstrap. They're there so you can simply untie the halterneck and wear the top with regular backstraps.

 

The top features:

  • an adjustable underbust band, that can be worn loose when sunbathing, and cinched tight when high diving or swimming in surf.
  • an oversized resin O-ring.
  • wear as a halter-neck, or tie the straps to rings placed in the back strap and wear it as a bralette.
  • fabric lining as thick as the fabric on the outside. 

The bottoms feature:

  • over-sized resin O-rings
  • fully secured lining throughout the seamless front and rear panels, for comfort and to ensure the seams remain straight. 
  • self-lining, front and back, to even anatomical contours and prohibit the ingress of sand 

Materials

  • Every strand of the stretch woven fabric has a core of elastane within a protective casing of strong nylon and polyester around it.
  • The lining is the same fabric, but white, and 143gsm to support the smart tailored look and provide unrivalled figure control.
  • Straps and bands are made from 190gsm Vita from Carvico in Milan. It is 78% Recycled Nylon and 22% Xtra Life Lycra. 
  • All threads are UV and chlorine resistant polyester.
  • For elasticity and endurance, 0.63mm treated latex is ran through all straps, bands and opening seams.
  • Oversized O-rings are made from cast resin.
  • Small O-rings are nylon coated steel, the most durable hardware for swimwear there is.
