Bikini Styles

With so many choices of fabulous bikini styles out there, it can sometimes be hard to decide which one you want.  With each new bikini season, there are new cuts to go along with all the new colors and fabrics.  To try to cut out some of the confusion, let’s go over a few of the most popular bikini styles out there today.

The most commonly seen bikini top is the classic looking triangle cut top.  This top ties around the back and the neck so it offers a little support.  The coverage it offers will vary by bust size.  This is a great all-around top that works nicely for most body types.  The butterfly top is similar in that it can also be tied around the neck and back.  The other great feature about a butterfly top is that both strings can often be tied around the back offering an optional strapless look.  If strapless is what you’re going for, a bandeau is another great option for ladies who may not need as much support up top.  A sweetheart top is the perfect top if you need a bit more support.  The straps are generally wider and set further apart with a full coverage for the bustline.

Bikini bottoms range from the barely-there to full coverage with a few stops in between.  Starting from the smaller end of the spectrum is the ever-popular g-string thong.  This tiny bottom offers very little coverage in the front and generally has string sides joining a string back.  If you are looking for little to no tan lines, this is your best bet!  In the middle of the road, a Brazilian bikini bottom is a great style offering full coverage in the front with high cut sides and a backside that narrows from the top to bottom.  On the full cut end of the spectrum, the classic bikini bottom, boy shorts and bikini skirts will offer moderate to full coverage for those ladies who may not want to bare it all on the beach.

When shopping all the hottest bikini styles, remember to keep in mind which cuts will work best for your body type.  With a little careful shopping, you should be looking your bikini best in no time!
