Bikini styles for summer

The modern bikini was first seen on French beaches in the summer of 1947, following its invention the previous year in France. It is named after the “Bikini Atoll”, home to many nuclear explosions in the Pacific Ocean. Just weeks after the “Atome” one-piece swimsuit was announced as “the smallest swimwear in the world,” this new style of swimwear would “split the Atome,” and thus the two-piece swimwear sensation that is the bikini was born.

While normally claimed to have been invented in 1947, two-piece swimwear has been recorded in history as early as the fourth century and was regularly used by Roman women. But it is only in the past sixty years that the bikini has become synonymous with the beach.

What Your Swimsuit Says About You, According to Guys

Over the past sixty years, bikinis have evolved from offering full coverage to today’s minimalist styles that barely cover anything. There are three main types of bikinis that are primarily determined by how much material they are made of and thus how much coverage they provide the wearer.

The traditional bikini generally offers full coverage at the back and encloses the breasts. Brazilian bikinis lose some of this material in the bikini bottom, creating a low-cut bottom and more skimpy coverage of the breasts. The micro bikini (or microkini) goes to the extreme in this material-cutting exercise.

The microkini uses the smallest material (to stay within public morality laws) and offers barely any cover. The most extreme styles have just a string in the back and a small triangle of material in the front. The bikini tops are so small that they barely cover the nipples. But since most people will never wear these, we’ll focus on the traditional bikini shapes and styles.

Which style you choose depends largely on your body type, as certain styles are designed for larger body types than others. Body styles for bikinis can generally be divided into three or four categories and are determined by most of your body.

Triangle bikinis are one of the most common bikini styles and work best if your breasts are not much bigger than a D cup. They consist of two triangular areas of material (one per breast) that are either directly connected together or held together by thin pieces of material or string. Triangle styles work best with smaller breasts because they don’t provide the support that larger breasts need.

Halter neck bikinis, on the other hand, are better suited for women with larger breasts. If your bra size is a C cup or above, this style will definitely look better on you and provide much-needed support. They generally have wider straps than the spaghetti straps of triangle bikinis and won’t dig into your shoulders as much.

Bandeau style bikinis differ from both triangle and halter neck styles because the top is made from one piece of material and covers your breasts like a band. In fact, this is how his name was derived.

Since the weight of your breasts is supported by the band of material, bandeau bikinis come with either two thin straps, a single asymmetrical band, or normally no straps at all. This bikini style works best for smaller busts, as the lack of shoulder straps means larger busts sag.

If you need a little extra help with your bikini, look for underwire bikini tops as they help shape your bust. If you want help with your cleavage, look for contoured or plunge bikinis, as these give your breasts a lift and bring them closer together to create a larger cleavage than you would with traditional triangle styles.

Bikinis are mainly sold separately, so you can match or mix your bikini bottom with your bikini top. This makes choosing your beach look easier as you can choose a different pair of pants, or a larger size if needed, than the bikini top.

If you’re top heavy, go for a plain bikini top and a detailed bikini bottom to take the attention away from your chest. Conversely, if your bottom half is larger than your top half, keep opting for plain pants and a detailed bikini top.

Details like rings, bows, and ties work well to keep eyes focused on your best features and away from the ones you like least. If you really don’t like your underpants, you can get bikini bottoms with a skirt. A little skirt effect has been added that is both beautiful and good for hiding your bum.

Look for high-cut bikini bottoms to elongate the legs or create a rounder silhouette. Hipster bottoms work well.
