Britney Spears bikini photos

Updated on July 24, 2008

Britney or Venus? You Decide.

The bikini is a two piece bathing suit for a woman. It is designed to cover the least amount of a woman's body that the law, in most states, requires for public dress. It obviously leaves very little to the imagination.

According to the official history of the garment it was first introduced at a fashion show in Paris on July 5, 1946 which was thirty-five years, seven months and 17 days prior to the birth of Britney Spears on December 2, 1981. However, many claim that women in France were wearing similar garments a year earlier and that women in Germany were wearing them in the 1930s. Of course, in America we were a little more conservative in those days and swimming suits for women in the 1940 covered all but the head, arms and legs. Men by that time had managed to trim their suits down to the size and shape of boxer shorts. An improvement from a couple decades before when their suits covered about the same amount of their bodies and the women's suits in the late 1940s. Of course, looking back to the early 20th century and comparing women's swimming suits then and in the 1940s we can see that the amount of cloth used had definitely declined in the intervening decades.

Now, for a Real Goddess...

In an attempt to grab some headlines for the, apparently not so new, two piece swim suit for women, the promoters of the bikini named the new garment after an atoll in the Pacific that had blasted into the news a few days earlier when the United States began testing nuclear weapons on the little atoll named Bikini. The publicity ploy worked in the United States, as reaction to the new swim wear for women was nuclear, to say the least. It was denounced in press and pulpit and heralded as another step in the decline of our civilization. However, within a short time as American movie starlets joined their French counter parts in wearing the new garment we became accustomed to it and our civilization made it to the new millennium and continues.

Frankly, I don't see why people would have been shocked to see women modeling skimpy, two piece bathing suits in a Parisian fashion salon in 1946 or today. If one wants to see a scantly clad woman in Paris all they have to do is head over to the Louvre and view the statue of Venus de Milo modeling what appears to be a bed sheet wrapped around her middle. Somehow, Britney in a bikini on the beach in Miami does not appear quite as erotic as Venus in a museum in Paris.

      Chuck's unfortunate choice of bikini pic for Britney unfairly tilts the debate. There are dozens of other images in the public domain that display the full voluptuous splendor of this remarkably endowed little creature. If any measurable criticism is to be leveled, her legs might be a tad short by proportion. But Britney has the shoulders, back, ass, and - yes - exsqusitely shaped legs of a gymnast or a dancer. Her titties, torso, and tummy are part-for-part as erotically appealing as the Venus all day long (look again.).

      ckmoloy - thank you for visiting my Hub.

      As to the missing arms on the sculpture of Venus de Milo, they were apparently lost centuries ago. As to how or why they broke or were broken off is a mystery to everyone.

      However, considering that she has been around for about 2,200 years, I'de say that she is in pretty good shape all things considered.

      Here is a link to the WikiPedia entry on Venus de Milo: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus_de_Milo

      I was enjoying your fine articleuntil I reached the picture of Brittney. Some how even in her better days she would never reach the level of beauty espoused by the Venus. I would go so far as to say that Brittney's initials sum up her best attempts.
