    The Islamic Solidarity Games open in Indonesia this weekend following a chaotic run-up, with controversy over female athletes competing in sports bikinis adding to the turmoil. Some nations demanded that all women cover up for the beach volleyball, track and field, and swimming events, but organizers have refused to axe the two-piece sporting outfits. "If some countries do not want to use the bikini, that's fine, but if other countries want to, we will allow that," senior organizing committee member Djoko Pramono told AFP.

    Who's ready for the world famous and highly anticipated one-piece, conservative beach sarong competition? I can imagine a scenario in which a Western contestant, keen on the kind of nose-thumbing at stuffy cultural norms that lifted the dreary "Little Miss Sunshine" to Oscar commendations and would lift her to viral video fame, rips off her sarong to reveal—gasp!—a shocking two-piece swimsuit. Sadly, an act which truly gave power and purpose to a display of the female form would probably be tsk-tsked by the same people who lectured Americans about their “puritanical” nature after, say, Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction. Not to...

    There's a new breed of Spring Breaker that walks the beaches these days. Fights over booze, flirting boyfriends or heckling seems to be a thing of the past now that Green Spring Breakers are leaving their carbonated beer footprints on the sand. Madison Alexandra Pelfrey, 21, from Wellington, was approached on Smathers Beach on March 4th by a woman with blond hair wearing a pink bikini, later ID'd as Cassi Lyn Clayton, 20, from Rock Hall, MD, who began to yell at Pelfrey about littering on the beach, according to an arrest affidavit from the Key West Police Department.

    Dieting and exercising are perhaps the most popular New Years Resolutions, but don't worry if you've indulged on a few too many holiday treats this year. Swimsuits are already trickling onto retail shelves and the spotlight is on one-piece swimwear, not bikinis. Yes, that extra inch to pinch around your tummy can potentially remain hidden all year. Every stylish celebrity from the curvier gals like Beyonce, Christina Hendricks, and Kim Kardashian, to the skinny-minnies like Taylor Swift, Kate Moss, and Kirsten Dunst are rocking one-piece bathing suits, or "maillots." As a result, the rest of us are heading directly...

    This is one way for an airline to build customer support: host a mid-flight, bikini-clad beauty pageant. AFP reports that the Vietnamese carrier VietJet hosted a Hawaiian-themed dance contest to celebrate the airline's maiden flight between Ho Chi Minh City and the tourist hub of Nha Trang, but got in trouble -- not for the parade of scantily-clad women -- but for making the mistake of not first gaining permission by the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam. The airline "violated local aviation regulations" by organizing "an unapproved show on a flight," Nguyen Trong Thang, chief inspector of the Civil Aviation...

Now, the formula is being taken to hoops -- even if there already is a large, established women's professional league.
