Miss Universe India winners in bikini over the years
Bikini contests that shocked the pageant world | Beauty Pageants - Times of India Videos
First, it was Miss World. Now, Miss America is following suit and telling its contestants not to pack in bikinis for the contest. Come , and this controversial round of the pageant will be scrapped, as is being deduced, in a bid to end sexism. This means, we will no longer have a swimsuit competition round. Needless to say, the social media has been up in arms against the very idea. However, those on the other side of the fence are giving the decision a clear thumbs up.
Bye bye bikini
Even in the post MeToo era, we are all fixing our hair for Instagram and waxing our legs, and spending money on beauty at a rate that once only Miss Indias needed to. A lovely girl called Anukreethy Vas has won the Miss India this week, joining a long line of lovely Miss Indias, real and imaginary. She was a beauty pageant winner and gorgeous, but not a Miss India.
A swimsuit competition , more commonly now called a bikini contest , is a beauty contest which is judged and ranked while contestants wear a swimsuit , typically a bikini. One of the judging criteria is the physical attractiveness of the contestants. The Big Four international beauty pageants have included examples of such a competition. Bikini contests have sometimes been organised or sponsored by companies for marketing purposes  or to find new models for their products, with the contests being presented as a form of adult entertainment. Swimwear competitions have formed a part of beauty pageants , such as the Miss Earth and Miss World pageants, and sponsors have included commercial brands such as Hawaiian Tropic.
