Bikini vs swimsuit: which do you prefer?
A day out at the beach can sometimes turn into a fashion show. What outfit to wear, which towel to take and how to do your hair? And that’s before you’ve even chosen what swimwear you’ll rock on the beach! Will you choose a swimsuit or bikini? After all, nothing is more important than feeling good in your outfit. We’ve listed a few pros & cons for you!
A bikini is the best choice of swimwear if you’re looking to get a tan. You can of course get a tan in a swimsuit, but they often cover all your tummy and/or back. We don’t always like tan lines! A bikini can be strapless, or can have tie-side bottoms. The best options if you’re looking for an even tan.
Every body is a bikini body. But when it comes down to it, you might just feel more comfortable in a swimsuit rather than a bikini. Swimsuits have changed a great deal over the years, thank goodness! Swimsuits tended to be rather plain, with a lot of coverage; the complete opposite of a bikini. Nowadays swimsuits come in all manner of colours and prints. They can be strapless, high cut, and much more besides, so you can stand out on the beach without revealing too much.
Do you have a body shape where the size of your hips and boobs differ? If so, finding a swimsuit can be quite tricky. The good thing about a bikini is that it’s a two piece. All kinds of tops and bottoms can be worn together. Mix & Match: buy the exact design, size and fit to complement your body shape.
Do you prefer being active on the beach? If so, a swimsuit is a good choice for you! A sporty swimsuit with a high neckline ensures comfort and support, whatever activity you’re doing. Which, unfortunately, isn’t always the case with a bikini. Step into a stunning yet trusty swimsuit, and trounce everyone in a game of beach volleyball.
