Bikini Sizing Tips

Even a perfectly designed bikini can look terrible if it doesn’t fit right.  By following a few simple bikini sizing tips, you will have a swimsuit that fits you nicely.  Choosing a style that suits your body type is the very first step.

Bikini Sizing Tips

For women who need a bit more support up top, or who like a little extra coverage, a sweetheart top is a great place to start.  These sexy tops generally have wide-set straps that tie around the neck and a thicker strap ties around back.  Being able to tie both the neck and back straps mean it is easier to adjust to individual body types.  When selecting your size, it is important to follow the designer’s sizing information, if any is available.  Each designer should know whether a top runs small or large, or exactly where it should be.  Two other good options for those who want a little more support are the triangle cut and butterfly tops.  Both styles have adjustable cups, and ties around the neck and back.  A good bikini sizing tip to follow is to buy a size smaller if you want a bikini top to fit snugly.  Although be sure to allow enough cup room to accommodate your breast size.

Bikini sizing tips for the bottom pieces is a little simpler.  For the most part, sizing comes down to how much coverage you want from a bikini bottom.  Some bikini bottoms are sized XS – XL while others come in sizes relative to regular pants sizes such as 2 – 14.  Again, it is important to check a designer’s own sizing information for tips relating to a particular cut or size.  The most important factor when deciding on size is how it feels and whether or not the straps dig into your skin.  Even the most stylish bikini can’t shine through a serious sizing faux pas.

Be sure both pieces fit properly, and you will already be on the way to one of the hottest looks on the beach.
