If you thought summer was all about shorts and short skirts, you are not wrong but not completely so. Summer also means swimming and when you go swimming, then it is hardly likely that you will wear anything about swimsuits. But when it comes to swimsuits, we all have to agree that bikinis are the elite of this category. The bikini is an outfit that is not at all for the faint-hearted or the shy. If you wear a bikini, then you have to be prepared to be looked at and be admired too. And once you have gone with a bikini and enjoyed the way it makes you feel and the way others look at you, then there is no going back. We know about one piece outfits and why they can be charming but a bikini takes it to the next level altogether.
If you are thinking of bikinis in terms of some choices for what you should wear to the beach, then you had better start working out and ensuring that your body looks fit and awesome. The thing is, all bikinis are not made equal and you do have a wide range to choose from. But the essence of a bikini is a two piece outfit for swimming, one of which is the brassiere like top and the other being panty or shorts shaped bottom portion.
These can come in many materials and with many patterns. What is more, the cut and curve of the bikini is determined by the way it is designed and this also dictates the brevity or coverage of the bikini. In some instances, the bikini can be relatively modest offering quite a bit of coverage and in some instances, it can be really bold and be constructed out of miniscule amounts of fabric. While it is among the cool summer outfits for you to enjoy wearing, it also increases the temperature of people around you.
The thing is, bikinis do not conceal much of the body shape you have or the kind of skin you have. That is probably the reason that women start working out way before the season to wear a bikini comes around. It is the same with the kind of skin care routines they follow while wearing a bikini.
One may be wrong in assuming that a bikini is simply a set of top and bottom because you have many types in these two. Like for instance, you have the string bikini which can be tied and untied using the said strings. The same way you have a bikini that is really high cut, which means that the bottom has minimum coverage on the sides and the top may have very less coverage in the back. Then you have the halter top bikini where the top portion ties behind your neck. Another type of bikini is the one that does not have straps at all in the top portion and the way it is held up can seem like gravity defying.
When it comes to the kind of bikinis you should have, do consider ones that come in prints, either only in the top or bottom or both. Most bikinis are designed for typical body shapes like curvy, athletic, bottom heavy, top heavy or slim hipped or so on. We are sure that you can do some research on this to pick out the right one for your body type.
Even if you are not inclined to wear a bikini, we are sure you will enjoy the images we have provided here on the different types of bikinis there are out there.
