The Anita is a $3,000 (£2000) limited edition handmade "bling-kini" by Pistol Panties, a swimwear company with famous clientele like Sarah Jessica Parker and Victoria (Posh Spice) Beckham. It is encrusted with some 5,000 Swarovski crystals and features a beaded gold rope connector. Like the rest of their swimsuit collection, this Pistol Panties design is to help make you feel like a superstar.

You can't swim in it though. All that bling is strictly to show off your svelte self on some sunlight beach or poolside where the reflection off the crystals will likely light you up like a Christmas tree.

The new Spring/Summer 2009 design made its debut down the runway at Miami Fashion Week. It was designed exclusively for Selfridges, the British chain. Selfridges is so sure it'll fly off the shelves, they have set up a waiting list.

I'd rather have the Swarovski crystals for jewelry making. Wouldn't you?
