Bikinis are a staple in any well-rounded swimwear wardrobe. They offer mix-and-match style options, and more importantly, lots of options for different shapes and sizes.
Bikini tops can be a bit easier to figure out, thanks to some of them being sized like a lot of the bras you may already be buying. Bikini bottoms however are a whole different game. What fits your shape? What’s flattering? What’s not so flattering?
Flattering suits aren’t only flattering because of their cut, patterns are also important. If you choose a patterned top and pair it with a solid bottom, you can direct the attention upward, if that’s what “suits” you best. Bright colors are also strategic eye-catchers and directors. One of the best parts of the bikini is its versatility.
Cut and style are right up there with pattern and color, and taking a moment to consider what works for you, is key to your comfort. If you’re proud of your back-side, you’ll want to be sure to check out the cheeky-cut. The name says it all and is perfect when you’re feeling particularly cheeky. The narrow cut and barely-there silhouette, are a great combination with a fit that hugs your hips. Even better, you can limit the tan lines and max-out on attention.
If you prefer a little more coverage back there, lots of designers offer super-cute options with moderate to full coverage. You can expect this fit to sit low over your hips and cover most of your back-side-real estate. Fans of this suit love it for its comfort and ability to focus the attention up-top.
If you’d like a little more coverage upfront, high-waisted bikini bottoms are great for a quick tuck-of-the-tummy. The beauty of the high-waisted bottom is that it flatters just about every shape. Expect it to rise up near your belly button, and then back to range anywhere from cheeky to full. This suit stays put when you’re active and holds everything in place at the same time.
Last, but certainly not least: The classic string bikini bottom! This bottom is a classic, in part, thanks to its adjustability. If your size changes, this solid friend changes right along with you; a custom-fit every time. Not only does it make your legs look like they go on forever, but it’s also easy to pair with lots of top styles.
Play around with different styles and patterns, to see what flatters your shape best. Have a little fun, and be sure to change things up as you go.
