Trikini (tri- + 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 “trikini” (tri- + bikini). The word “trikini” has had trademarks since the 1980s, but the face mask version is different.
“Don’t forget the girls, this summer, the ‘trikini’ will be all the rage on the beaches ...” (translated from French) was posted on Twitter by Marc Herstalle “Dum spiro, spero” on April 12, 2020. “For the ladies looking for a 2020 Compliant summer outfit!!! The Trikini😂😂😂😂” was posted on Facebook by Ed Voorhaar on April 16, 2020.
“Triquini” 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.
French class today: realizing what bikini means. Bikini/ monokini / Trikini or just simply sanskini
