Triquini (tri- + quarantine + bikini; a bikini with a face mask)

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic caused many people to wear face masks. The bikini, with a face mask, became a “triquini” (tri- + quarantine + bikini).

Posts on Twitter by arantwitno on April 14, 2020, and on Twitter by Alberto velazquez de castro on April 15, 2020, both show a “triquini.”

“Trikini” is another spelling.


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China, in December 2019, and was recognised as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020.

Wikipedia: Bikini
A bikini is typically a women’s two-piece swimsuit featuring two triangles of fabric on top, similar to a bra and covering the woman’s breasts, and two triangles of fabric on the bottom, the front covering the pelvis but exposing the navel, and the back covering the buttocks. The size of the top and bottom can vary from full coverage of the breasts, pelvis, and buttocks, to more revealing designs like a thong or G-string that cover only the areolae and mons pubis, but expose the buttocks.
