When it comes to travelling, one of the bet things about getting away from it all is relaxing. And one of the best ways to make the most of relaxing? Lying on a beach, in a bikini, with a cocktail in hand!
Now, a lot of women feel a little self conscious when it comes to summer and they start becoming more aware of the fact that sooner or later, they’ll have to be stripped down to their smalls. This exact reason is why clinics such as Dr. Farbod Esmailian’s, have been seeing an increase in cosmetic surgeries, particularly breast augmentations, year on year.
So, whether you’re flaunting what God gave you or showing off exactly what money can buy, there is a bikini style for everyone and thanks to the fiercely competitive bikini market and the constant need for brands to outdo each other, they’re often available without having to dig down too deep into your pockets.
While new styles are being developed and introduced all the time, here are the most common styles that you’ll see for sale.
Triangle tops originated in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and soon became one of the most popular options across the world for a bikini choice. The premise is simple the neck attachment ties around your neck and there are two triangles to cover your breasts, these may be fixed to the lower string or movable for comfort/preference.
A Bandeau bikini has no straps to hold it up so is a bit of a risky for girls who are more well endowed in the chest region.
That’s not to say you can’t wear bandeaus at all, quite the opposite! Just make sure you get one that is actually the right size – there’s nothing more trashy than a big chested girl wearing a top that is too small to contain the girls.
Underwired bikinis are the very best option for big chested girls. They provide support, more modesty and full cup coverage. It’s a no brainer!
Dos and Don’ts
There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to choosing a bikini or swimsuit, but there are a couple of things you should remember. First things first, remember to try on lots of different styles, even ones that you may not think will be right for you or your body shape – you never know, a certain style may surprise you!
Sometimes swimsuits and bikinis can be irregular sizes, if you’re not sure which size to get – go for the smaller one! The material will most likely expand when wet anyway.
On the subject of size, when you tie up your bikini or swimsuit, always tie it tighter than you think is right and adjust accordingly over your boobs once it’s tied.
Something to think about is to not just go for the trendy style because it is in fashion, if it doesn’t suit you or fit your silhouette well, then put it back on the rack and shop for your body shape. Back to the subject of size, never go for a bigger swimsuit under the impression that more material equals more flattering coverage. In fact, it does quite the opposite and the fabric gaps and lack of support will make for an unpleasant look.
