||This isn’t a porn site in the traditional sense. I’m merely stating an objective fact for prospective members rather than making a subjective judgment. Whether the site is worth joining is probably up to how much you like what they have to offer, which, I guess, is one way that this is definitely like a porn site.
Microminimus is the ‘community’ site for Wicked Weasel Bikinis. WW is an Australian swimwear company known for making ‘barely there’ swimwear like micro-thongs. They also offer swimwear made of see-through material. There are also some accessories, but the overall theme of the company is skimpy swimwear. This site offers photos of WW’s professional models as well as submissions from their happy customers.
The site is logically laid out. Photos can be sorted by newly added, updated, popular and wallpapers. Also on offer are photo sets from ‘competitions.’ These are set around a theme, Christmas, for example, and users submit photos and members vote on them. I find these are a great mix and so far I’ve spent a lot of my time on the site here. There are also archives for Cover Girls (seems that this can be a pro or amateur) and contributor archives. Another advantage is that they offer archives of the photos of their professional models that they use at their main site where they sell their bikinis.
There does appear to be some overlap between what is available for free at the commercial site and this ‘community’ site though I really have no idea how extensive that overlap is. There is a difference though: on the free site you only get lower-res photos while on the paid site you get access to higher-res photos. That may not be such a big deal though as the low-res photos on the free site are close and in some cases larger than the low-res photos on the paid site. (The low-res on both free and pay are approximately 950x663.) The higher resolution photos come in at 853x1280. That’s not much of a difference and it might not be a big enough difference to counter the work you have to go through to get the higher-res photos. The only lure for spending the $25 annual fee to join will probably be access to more photos, not higher-res photos.
The way the site is laid out and the overlap among how the galleries are organized it is pretty much impossible for me to say with any certainty how many galleries and photos there are here. There are certainly hundreds of photos, and more likely well over a thousand. Ten thousand? I doubt it.
Because the site relies so much on user-submitted photos there are a broad range of model types here. There are models who look like they could easily get modelling work at legitimate fashion shoots, models who could easily get work on adult sets, and models who probably shouldn’t model. I realize that may seem harsh, but some women shouldn’t wear WW bikinis. You don’t see me flaunting my 46-year-old body in a speedo. (Photos available upon request…)
The photo types themselves vary, but there is one certainty: this site doesn’t have full nudity. Some of the models go topless, some don’t. Some of the photo competitions specifically prohibit topless submissions. I find this very odd. Why make that choice? My guess is that the photos can then be used as marketing on their public site to drive sales. Even with the ban on nudity many of the photos can be pretty risqué. We are, after all, seeing photos of women in micro-mini bikinis that are often made out of translucent material. Some of us older guys can still draw on the days when our imaginations played a role in arousal.
If the site has a major flaw (and it DOES have a major flaw) it is that there are no gallery zips offered. So if you like a particular model or theme then be prepared to work to get what you want. To make matters worse, clicking on a photo opens the lower-res version. To get the higher-res version you have to go near the upper-left corner of the screen a click an icon which will then open the high-res photo in a new window. Then you can save it. And close the new window. And go back on the original page to click on another photo to start the labourious process all over again. If I wanted a hobby that required work I’d take up cabinetry.
So can I recommend this site? No, I can’t, but I don’t feel too bad about that since this really isn’t a site that fits well here either. I think the target market for this site is someone who’s girlfriend posts pics here and you want to show those off. If they offered zips I might lean to recommending it (but probably still wouldn’t). If they offered video I might think about recommending it, but they don’t. The good news is that it isn’t expensive at $25 per year. The bad news is that I now have to remember to cancel the membership in 11 months.
