According to Elizabeth Davies, entertainment editor of the Rockford (Ill.) Register-Star, the most popular swimsuit style this season is inspired by the skating dress.
"This year, the suit du jour has a short, straight skirt a la Michelle Kwan (with either a bikini top or a tank top).
"Immediately, I took a dislike to the skirt-suit. It just screams, 'Hmm. Wonder what she’s hiding under there?'
"But then I realized there’s another side to the coin. What’s worse: Making people assume you have something to hide — or actually showing them something you should be hiding?"
