Swimwear To Avoid Swim-Despair

Swimsuit season can really… well, for lack of a better word suck for many women, just as it always has. Many are uncomfortable with the notion of pealing off their winter layers, and revealing their figures to the world, and despite all the stereotypes, this isn’t an insecurity that only curvaceous women are prone to having. We all have our insecurities, and the super slender are no exception. Swimwear seems to be specially made with two primary features in mind… exceptional chests and butts. Without them, bikinis can look awkward and one-pieces can often sag, if you’re not blessed with the proper endowments, proving that swimwear shows little forgiveness to anyone. Here are a few types of swim suit for women to consider for those with narrow proportions.

Flat Chested
Due to the consistent love and focus given to perfect (and often fake looking) busts in skimpy bikini tops, it’s hard to feel confident with a B-cup or smaller. Despite being a size that will be less prone to causing back problems, it seems to do no favors in the swimwear department. But bikini tops with a bandeau shape, with or without straps, can look great on chests of this size and have a beautifully stable look to them, whereas the traditional triangle tops look flimsy and prone to malfunctions. The variations that have additional ruffles added look especially adorable and are highly efficient when it comes to disguising the size or shape of your bust.

Flat Butt
Butts have been the world’s most recent love affair, but the supposed “perfect” ones truly are few and far between. The proportions that come with the sexy butt almost appear to require the assistance of cosmetic surgery for them to be achieved. Luckily, swimwear trends for the past few seasons have been leaning closer and closer to shapes that mimics casual apparel, and where this is most obvious is the skirt-bottom trend. Whether a separate bottom or attached to a one-piece suit, this highly girly look is also the best friend to anyone trying to conceal the shape or size of their tush. So, for those of you who has a flatter bottom and doesn’t feel like wasting a couple grand for implants try out skirted bottoms instead.

Animal Cloning throughout Time

The very first successful animal cloning were done way back in 1979 and 1984, when scientists successfully split the embyros of mice and sheep, respectively. Prior to this, artificial cloning had only been attempted on amphibians such as newts and frogs. After the success with the mice, researchers progressed to cows, chickens, and sheep. Finally, in 1996, researchers at the Roslin Institute in Scotland created Dolly from the mature cells of a sheep. In 2008, the US Food and Drug Administration approved meat and milk from cloned animals, though the process was still too costly for the products to reach the markets.

Cloned animals generally have a low survival rate, due to organ defects and prematurely aging cells. In 2001, scientists successfully cloned a gaur, but the endangered ox only lived to be a few days old. The same occurred with the clone of a Pyrenean ibex, an extinct species, in 2003. Researchers saw more success that year when they managed to clone a banteng, another endangered species of ox. Since then, scientists have successfully cloned animals ranging from mules and pigs to endangered African wildcats. Copycat (Cc) was the first successful clone of an adult house cat, and in 2008, South Korean scientists began cloning pet dogs for those who can afford it.

In the early 2000s, scientists at the Oregon Regional Primate Research Center successfully cloned a rhesus monkey. The monkey had been genetically modified with jellyfish genes, and its two siblings — which did not survive until birth — fluoresced green under ultraviolet light like the jellyfish. In 2013, scientists created cloned embryonic stem cells from a human embryo. Although no human being has been cloned with success, and the subject is rife with controversy over ethics, successful human cloning might take place in the future as humankind progresses in the field, slowly but surely.
