The trend is growing in popularity as more people opt to take on a more risqué look.
Bikini-clad women, who often dress in swimsuits and swim trunks to go topless in public, have been known to flaunt their wares on social media.
They are also increasingly popular with the younger generations, who see them as a way to relax and get away from the rigors of everyday life.

She began taking pictures of women in bikini tops on the beach and in her bedroom, and then sharing them on social networks.

“When I wear it, I feel like I’m not being judged, and it’s kind
