You should most likely purchase new swimwear if you intend to take a beach vacation this year. Here is a list of the various swimwear categories available, along with some advice on how to pick the best item for you.
Types of Swimwear – Swimsuits
Traditional one-piece swimsuits continue to be a popular option, and there are many different styles to pick from.
Your body shape will determine the type of bathing suit that is best for you. If you are a classic pear shape (with small shoulders and a wider waist), for example, a swimsuit with a halterneck can help to draw attention to the top half of your body and therefore look more flattering, whereas if you are an “apple” shape (with board shoulders and a smaller waist), a swimsuit with a high neck line can help to draw attention towards your waist, making your figure look more balanced. Choose a swimsuit with cut-out areas or a belt at the waist if you are slim and want to make it appear as though you have more curves.
Selecting a swimsuit in a color that flatters you is also crucial. A brightly colored swimsuit will highlight your tan if you’re already fairly tanned, while a dark swimsuit will look better on those who aren’t tanned. If you are thin, swimsuits with patterns all over can look great, but if you want a suit that will make you look slimmer, pick one that is plain and darker in color.
Types of Swimwear – Bikinis
Bikinis have been popular ever since Bridgette Bardot wore one in the 1957 movie “And God Created Woman”, and you can now buy bikinis in many different styles. You can purchase bikini tops and bottoms separately as well as complete bikini sets, so you should be able to locate one that perfectly complements your body type.
You can purchase padded bikini tops to give you more shape, or underwired bikini tops for additional support. Try a bikini crop top if you want a less exposed and sportier bikini top. A variety of styles are available for bikini briefs, such as hipster briefs, which flatter women with long legs, and tie briefs, which you can customize to fit you.
Types of Swimwear – Tankinis
A short, sleeveless top and bikini bottoms make up the tankini, a contemporary addition to swimwear. Tankinis are great for women who aren’t comfortable showing off their bodies because they are less revealing than bikinis. Additionally, because they are two pieces, they may also be more practical than swimsuits. Tankinis come in a variety of styles, just like swimsuits and bikinis do. The range of tankini briefs available includes high leg, low leg, and low rise briefs, as well as plain briefs or briefs that feature detail like ties or rings. You can select from a variety of different styles of tankini tops, including halterneck, underwired, and sports-style tops.
Other Types of Beachwear
You may decide that you need additional beachwear once you’ve selected your new swimsuit, bikini, or tankini. After a swim, kaftans or beach dresses are ideal for covering up because they are both functional and fashionable. Wearing vacation shorts or beach pants is a great way to get to and from the beach.
