These days, you have plenty of choice when it comes to picking out your favourite swimsuit options. But it can also sometimes be a case of a little too much choice! With so many bikini styles out there, how do you tell one from another? And how do you know which one you’ll love the most?
Below, we’ve listed the most popular swimsuit styles and which ones might fit your needs the most.
ONE PIECE SWIMSUITS
Not everyone feels comfortable baring it all in a bikini. The one piece swimsuit offers a little bit more coverage and plenty of support. Even better, these days they’re available in a range of trendy styles, patterns and colours. You can even find one piece swimsuits with built-in skirts or bust support, making them perfect for every body type.
The ever-popular bikini comes in a wide range of swimsuit styles to cater to all body types and personal tastes.
The bikini classic! Triangle tops typically tie at the neck and back. Often available with removable padding, they’re great for those with smaller busts.
Often available with thin, detachable straps, the bandeau is perfect for tanning. Great for small busts and showing off your collarbones!
Similar to the triangle top, halter tops have thicker straps that fasten behind the neck. Great for adding support, lifting or enhancing the bust!
Enhances smaller busts, yet adds additional support for larger busts. Similar to a bra, it has full cup coverage and built-in wire support.
Offering tummy coverage, the tankini is great for any body type. It often comes with a fitted bust or shirring details.
With a wide range of options available, you now have more control over just how much of your tush you want to show off!
Hipster bikinis sit low on the hips but still offer full coverage. Available in a range of colours and prints, they’re great to balance out wider hips.
For those looking to show off a little more cheek, Brazilians have a traditional triangular front, but a high, narrow cut at the back.
The adjustable sides give you a little more control over the amount of coverage you want, with flattering, minimal hip coverage great for sunbathing!
A popular retro fit, high waisted bottoms provide more tummy coverage and a fuller back - great for lifting a smaller bum!
High leg bikini bottoms show off more of your thighs, elongating the legs while offering plenty of coverage.
With their low rise and square cut, boy shorts usually offer total coverage. Boy leg bikini briefs complement a petite frame.
A feminine option that provides full coverage, skirted briefs cover up the hips and thighs. They can come in a variety of lengths and styles to suit your tastes.
