What types of Bikinies are there?
For the taste, the colors! And this famous phrase applies to literally everything, including types of Bikinies. Let’s discover together the wide variety of Bikinis, so that later we can choose the ideal one for us.
The basic par excellence! And it is the one that we have all used at some point in our lives, but the patterns and colors change every time. This type of Bikini is the one with the top part shaped like a triangle and the bottom part usually having straps to tie on the sides, it’s a classic!
High waist bikini:
This bikini has been very fashionable in recent years and its design favors those who want to mark the waist and take a little attention away from those love handles that we all have, since the bottom part is a little higher than usual and gives the Bikini a retro style. The design at the top varies a lot.
Whole or one piece! This style is one of the best known and used, its designs, prints and colors vary, but its essence is always maintained, it is the silhouette that covers our abdomen, sometimes it gives more support to our breasts and it looks great.
The better of two worlds! This is the perfect combination between a bikini and a full bathing suit, since the upper part and the lower part are joined without giving the garment a total closure.
Choose one according to your body shape!
We already know that all bodies are very diverse and equally beautiful and, therefore, it is normal that each one favors one silhouette more than another. When we talk about body types, we refer to the silhouettes as such, because at no time do we talk about sizes.
Surely you have heard about the hourglass type body, or the triangle type, well, this is what we mean by body types, and today we will talk about all of them, so that you learn to identify which one is yours, because this is the key to getting the most out of your silhouette and highlighting it with your clothes. So if you want to discover how to choose a perfect Bikini according to your body shape, keep reading, to be victorious!
Triangle or pear-shaped body:
This type of silhouette is characterized by having hips wider than the shoulders. In most cases, this type of body usually has a marked waist.
For this reason, the ideal Bikini for this type of body is the whole one that has boleros, volume and a little cleavage at the top, so that the shoulders and hips achieve a balance.
Inverted triangle body:
Being the same figure as the triangle, but in reverse, this type of silhouette has the shoulders wider than the hips, and they almost never have a marked waist.
What we want to achieve in this type of body is a balance between the shoulders and the hips, for this reason, bikinis with drapes at the bottom, or an asymmetrical one-shoulder neckline at the top, generate that balance that we are looking for.
Rectangle type body:
In this silhouette, the shoulders and hips measure the same. This body type does not usually have a very pronounced waist, so if you want to highlight your waist or add more curves to your figure, one-piece Bikinis with cutouts at the waist or draping are ideal!
Oval type body:
This type of body is characterized by having a little more volume in the abdominal area, and its torso and back are wide.
The oval silhouette looks great in one-piece Bikinis or high-waisted bikinis.
The girls who have this type of silhouette, their shoulders and hips measure the same and usually have a very marked waist.
By having a balance between the shoulders and the hips, the hourglass body can highlight the curves to maintain that balance, and this can be achieved through the classic triangle cut bikinis or trikinis.
