Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(MANAMA, Kuwait) - A committee in Kuwait has ruled that a motion to ban bikinis is unconstitutional, reports GulfNews.com.

The motion would have meant a one-year prison sentence and hefty fine for those caught wearing bikinis, clothes with deep cleavage and other revealing items at beaches.

Members of the Development and Reform Bloc and parliament member Khalid Al Sultan submitted the motion after they say they had noticed women on the beaches were not abiding by public standards of morality.
