Tube bandeau and maillot I-front.
A tube bandeau and the vertical tube of the maillot I-front demonstrate how layers can make a swimsuit "decent" (1).
Layers play a power role when the I-front begins to get combined with various top combinations. It has also been know to be combined with briefs that provide fuller backside coverage.
