Bikini Styles To Suit Your Body - Buying Bikinis Online
If you’re planning a holiday to the beach or pool this summer you’re probably going to need a good bikini or swimsuit. Now before you run off to the mirror to take a look at that irresistible body you will probably want to relax and prepare yourself. In order to find the perfect garment to wear we have to know that there are multiple styles of swimwear to fit multiple body types and shapes.
Let us take a look at some different styles for different types of bodies. The one piece style is good for women who want to cover up or hide slightly flabby or fat tummies or hips. The skirted version of the one piece helps to hide a bit more of the legs. This style is gaining popularity rapidly as gives a sexy look to the one piece.
The Triangle Top Bikini is the traditional bikini with two triangles with the halter neck and Brazilian style panty bottoms. This is great for girls with straight, boyish figures who want to give the illusion of having curves.
Then we have the Tankini given its name from being similar to a tank top with a bikini bottom. This modest two piece suit is perfect to hide those slight belly imperfections.
Tube top and strap bikinis are two other popular styles though strapless is not recommended for women with a larger breast.
Colour is almost as important as the style, for example, a pink swimsuit wont suit pale skin, but on darker skin tones it can look outstanding. Think carefully about what colours suit your eyes, skin tone and hair before you purchase swimwear.
The perfect fabric composition for a swimsuit is a cotton/lycra mix. Lycra provides a good fit while cotton ensures comfort especially sensitive skin. Be careful about sizing, if the swimsuit is cutting into your skin or parts of you are nearly exposed, as you’ll probably larger size.
Now you know what to look for in swimsuits and bikinis, the only thing left is to look for somewhere good to buy one. This isn’t usually as hard as you’d think as there are lots of great places online to buy swimwear from. The variety is huge online and you can find yourself a design for every mood you’re in!
There are hundreds of designers and shops available at the end of your fingertips and the best thing is that you won’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home, this is due to the convenience of buying bikinis online.
