BC BRAZIL BIKINI MATCHER BIKINI CLAD WOMEN ON RIO BEACH
Scantily-clad Brazilians sport the latest in bikini fashion along the beachfront in Ipanema. The makers of the sexy, colorful bikinis are on the march to conquer overseas markets, with requests coming in from unlikely destinations such as Japan and Morocco. Brazilians have perfected the act of going to the beach to an art form, starting with skimpy "dental floss" bikinis and moving on to matching hot pants or skirts. Picture taken May 1997.
