A bikini for every occasion

The summer is a time for hitting the beach, enjoying the great outdoors, and soaking up as much sunshine as you can, while it lasts. Of course, getting the most out of those warm and leisurely summer days involves having the right clothing for the job – and a major part of that is having a bikini for every occasion, that allows you to make the most of those days spent lounging by the pool, or reclining on the sandy beach. Bikinis come in a variety of different styles, suited to different body types and a variety of situations. Here is a quick rundown of some of the different bikinis you can wear for a range of different occasions and body types.


Bandeau / Strapless Bikini

A strapless – or Bandeau – bikini is a great and timeless style that’s best used for leisurely outdoor and poolside activities, but which isn’t ideal for swimming, since it lacks the straps and cords that would keep it in place when moving through the water.

Strapless bikinis are often considered ideal for tanning, and those that cinch between the breasts are likely to be best for this purpose, since they allow for your cleavage to get a good amount of sun, too.

Generally speaking, strapless bikinis are great if you are small-chested, and they work to create more of an impression of an hourglass figure.

Avoid these bikinis if you are busty, since they lack structure and support.


High-Neck Bikini

High-neck bikinis are great when you want to incorporate a more modest and elegant style into your swimwear, while still being beach ready and able to absorb the rays and fresh air.

These bikinis are a great pick for sporty seaside activities like volleyball, and for swimming as well, since they will tend to stay well in place no matter what it is you are doing.

As a general rule, high-neck bikinis typically aren’t a great fit for small-chested women.


High-Waisted Bikini

A high-waisted bikini is a great vintage style, that harkens back to the days of pinup models and beehive hairdos.

In addition to their vintage chic, high-waisted bikinis are a great option for women who prefer not to draw excess attention to their waistline, since these bikinis typically sit above the navel.

A high-waisted bikini can be a great choice for boosting your confidence for your next poolside day in the sun or visit to the beach.


String Bikini

The string bikini is the iconic “sexy bikini” style, for ladies who aren’t shy about putting a bit more skin on display.

Secured in place with strings behind the back and neck, and also at the waist, these bikinis are ideal for hourglass shaped woman who want to turn up the heat. Due to the structure of this bikini style, though, it’s not likely to be best for women with heavy busts and thicker thighs.
