Posted on March 17 2021
Stripes VS Dots is always a fiery discussion for the fashion-obsessed. Both seemingly serve the same purpose, providing a fun retro-chic look. Many would argue it simply up to personal preference. However, our team of experts here at Beachcomber are here to backup team stripes with some key benefits to a lined design you might not expect. Learn more about the benefits of our striped beachwear, including bikini sets and accessories, here at Beachcomber Swimwear below.
Stripes Mold your Figure
This fact is fairly well-known in the fashion world, but it bears repeating as it is a big advantage to striped swimwear that can offer some fabulous results when pulled off effectively. The general rule for stripes is as follows:
Vertical stripes stretch the body out, making you seem taller and somewhat slimming your figure. Horizontal stripes accentuate curves and give them more volume. Diagonal stripes, therefore, provide the best of both worlds, highlighting and flattening curves.
Thin stripes look great on the petite, whereas thicker stripes can really make the curvy glow when used in moderation.
Stripes Draw Attention
Stripes immediately takeover an outfit and serve as a powerful attention-grabber. One of the greatest combos is a flat black and navy & white stripe combo set. This delightfully retro look ensures immediately that attention is placed on your best curves and that your outfit meshes perfectly together. Combine this with the stripes ability to highlight and/or flatten curves and you have a truly powerful swimwear combo.
