What to wear to the beach?

Teeny bikinis, shorts and tops, athlete’s tights — whatever you like.

On this page at top there’s a one-piece shred of a bikini from Aquasport with a man’s striped bikini from the same store and an unusual checked suit, also from Aquasport.

In the lower right photo, the cotton shorts are from Reach for the Beach, and the sport togs and beach bag are from W on West Fourth, a fabulous place for summer sports separates.

(You might also check out Clairol’s new bikini shaver for women. It’s so compact it’ll fit into a handbag  — and yet it’s a very impressive little machine.)

Bonus story:   

Beating the heat can be a lot of fun if you’re near a pool. At New Brighton Park pool this week 13-year-old Chris Rittson-Bennett did just that by sliding into the park’s pool for an afternoon of cool and refreshing fun.
