Types of Bikini Bottoms to Best Suit You
When it comes to choosing your ideal bikini bottoms there are a few things to consider; what makes you most comfortable, what suits your personal style and what you’ll be doing when wearing them.
To help you find the perfect bottoms, we’ve put together a guide on the most popular styles to see you through the summer season.
Tie side bikini bottoms feature string sides that tie into a knot at your hips and come in a range of coverages, from fuller and more modest to cheeky Brazilian inspired cuts. One of our favourite things about this style is the ability to achieve the perfect fit by tying the sides tighter or looser as desired. Cheekier cuts are great for relaxing afternoons lazing in the sun, whilst a more modest finish will keep you covered as you enjoy an afternoon surf.
Flattering on all figures, high waisted bikini bottoms will have you feeling comfortable and confident all day long. Featuring a waist that finishes just above or below your belly button and usually a fuller coverage back, this style is a go to for any summer activity. We love pairing them with a bandeau bikini top and oversized woven sun hat.
A style that has grown in popularity over recent years, the ruched bikini bottom is a contemporary take on the classic cut. With a simple waist band and front and back that can be gathered more or less, this style allows you to tailor the coverage to achieve your dream fit and looks stunning in both striking prints or staple block colours.
One of the most iconic and timeless styles on offer, the classic bikini bottom features just the right amount of coverage, flattering thicker sides and comes in an array of fabrics, prints and colour palettes. Simple yet stylish, the classic bikini bottom pairs well with any bikini top, from a minimal triangle bikini to a vintage inspired underwired top.
If your dream summer looks more like splashing in the waves than relaxing on a white sandy beach with a good book in hand, a beach short style bottom is for you. These short shorts feature a modest boy cut leg and high waist, creating the ultimate balance between comfort and style. Pair a beach short with a coordinating rash vest for a look thats equally as cool as it is practical.
If you’re on the hunt for the perfect bikini bottoms to see you through summer, our guide to the most popular styles will help you on your way. From cheeky tie side, flattering high waisted and chic ruched looks to classic bottoms or beach shorts, experiment with different styles to achieve your ideal look this summer.
