Sales of one-piece swimsuits increased 147 percent from a year ago, while sales of bikinis rose just nine percent.
Sales of three-piece sets comprising of bikinis and a swimming robe soared by 65 percent.

As for men, sales of short, tight swimming trunks went up 153 percent, while interest in longer, baggier trunks waned.
