Summer is almost here and social distancing guidelines are still in place on beaches around the world.
One Italian swimwear designer has a creative solution to help people enjoy summer activities during the coronavirus pandemic. Meet the trikini.
Just as the name suggests, the trikini has three pieces. A top, bottoms and — you guessed it — a matching, waterproof face mask. © Tiziana Scamuzzo/Elexia Beachwear Model Eleanor Lupini shows off a trikini design made by Italian brand Elexia Beachwear.

This swimsuit is definitely a sign of the times. Tiziana Scaramuzzo, owner of Elexia Beachwear, told Italian news site Centropagina that the idea for her pandemic-safe swimwear “was born joking with the family.”
“The idea was born in the house during quarantine to take photos with my children,” Scaramuzzo told the outlet. “We didn’t think it would be this successful.”
