This guide to the 7 most essential types of bikini tops will help you find the right design to channel your most glamorous swim-style.
In your loungewear lingerie drawer, your underwire bras are your secret weapon for confidence and support—but underwire’s sexy skills aren’t just limited to intimates. Bikini tops can be made with underwire as well and can be sized the same way you’d buy a bra.
If you’re new to underwire’s advantages, let us paint you a picture. Underwire can…
For those that have big busts, this style is definitely one to keep in mind because it’s considered one of the best fits for your body type.1 A good underwire swim top will ensure your girls stay in place and keep you looking cute all day.
When you think “bikini top,” the first thing that probably comes to your mind is the classic triangle bikini top. While this classic swimsuit style is flattering to a large range of shapes and breast sizes, part of the fun of a triangle bikini top comes from the many ways you can style them.
Use these bathing suit style tips to dust it off and give it some love this beach season:
Halters are a super recognizable style of swimsuit top. They’re defined by their fixed triangle cups and shoulder straps that tie around the neck, as opposed to triangle or string bikinis where the cups can move. Since their cups are fixed, halters offer a little more support than a string bikini, making them a better option if you’re looking to be active.
Halters are also the bikini style you’ve been looking for if you have:
From lounging around in the sun to going for a brisk swim in the ocean waves, a halter top bikini will have you ready for whatever your beach day might bring.
We’ve talked a lot about adjustable straps in this article, but if you’re looking to achieve that even, sunkissed tan (without awkward tanlines), then bandeaus are the way to go.
There are plenty of advantages to a bandeau bikini top:
In addition to their tanning benefits, bandeau tops are also easy to cover up. You can throw on your everyday top or dress over it and head straight from the beach to lunch without anyone knowing you have a cute bikini top underneath.
Whether you sunburn easily or simply prefer a more covered look, your reasons for not wanting to bare it all to the summer sun are totally valid.
But you don’t have to let your preferences put you off bikinis entirely. Instead, you can opt for a more covered look with a high-neckline or tankini-style top. Extra benefits of this style include:
With a high neckline, you can rock a bikini your way. Embrace your signature style and find the perfectly unique neckline that means the sun won’t be the only thing turning up the heat on the beach when you’re there.
If you have the best time when you’re getting wild with your style, string bikinis might be calling your name. With their fun, stretch straps, you can create an eye-popping look and can even wear the same strap top in multiple different ways, depending on how you tie it. Some of the most popular ways to tie a string bikini are:
One of the biggest strengths of string bikinis is their endless versatility. You can generate an endless stream of fabulous poolside or bridal swimwear looks from the same strap top if you’re willing to be creative about how you tie it.
Pattern and top style are the most common elements that come to mind when you think about how to make a bikini stand out, but you can’t forget about texture. That’s where fringe tops come into play.
While fringe originally came about during the 60s and 70s, it's been making a big comeback recently. And fringe is fun because:
Fringe can also work on many different classic bikini cuts. From a halter to a triangle top to one with a higher neckline, you can enjoy a fringe look no matter your body type or your personal sense of style. This throwback doesn’t discriminate.
When the weather turns warm (or when the hot tub calls), you’re ready to the water. But to be properly summer-season ready, you need to rock the ultimate bikini look.
