Styles of Women's Swimsuits

The styles of womens' swimwear have change so much over the years. There was once a time when most swimwear for women covered the body completely. Fast forward to now and we see the opposie as the current trend. Less is more and little is left to the imagination.

Bandeau Swimsuit: This suit can be both one or two piece. Bandeau is a strapless design. Usually these suits have detachable straps that you can attach as a halter, spaghetti or criss cross style

Bikini / Two piece Swimsuits: These popular suits expose your midsection, a large selection of designs are available in this style of swimsuit varying in coverage.

Classic Bikini: Also a womens favorite, with this style of bikini the top has the appearance of a bra, some even have underwire support. The classic bikini provides you with complete coverage over the buttocks and groin.

String Bikini: Scantier and more revealing than a traditional bikini. It gets its name from the string characteristics of its design. Consisting of two triangular formed pieces covering the chest. These pieces are connected with strings. The bottom piece is usually also a triangular piece covering the groin area. Strings usually hold this in place also. It is not generally necessary that the string bikini be two pieces, it sometimes can be just one piece. They also can be either tied or continuous.

Tankini: Popular for the past few years, this twist on the classic bikini is a two piece suit where instead of the bikini top a tank top is used. A great choice for women that don't want to reveal their stomach.

Swimsuit Myths

Myth: Never wear a white bathing suit.
Fact: A white suit in a textured fabric with a thick nude lining will block any show-through.

Myth: The more coverage, the better.
Fact: Extra fabric can emphasize the thing you want to hide. Boy shorts, for example, can squeeze and exaggerate excess flesh, whereas a string bikini adjusts to lay flat on the skin.

Myth: Wear black to look slimmer.
Fact: Navy, plum, brown, and dark green do the trick, too. Vertical and diagonal stripes and tiny prints can also make the body look leaner.

Myth: With swimwear, buy the same size as you do in clothing.
Fact: Swimsuits are typically sized smaller than clothes because they are meant to fit snugly. You may have to go up a size or two, especially with brands targeted to juniors, such as Roxy.
