Brazilian Bikinis

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

It’s hard to call Brazilian bikinis a trend when it’s been one of the hottest styles going for decades, but with new Brazilian cuts emerging all the time it’s one worth a fresh look.  It is easy to see why Brazilian bottoms are so deeply admired with their high-cut sides and narrow backs, and some of today’s styles play up these sexy features even more.  For example, we found a new Brazilian Cheeky bikini bottom that is cut to follow the natural curves of a woman’s backside which only helps to accentuate it even more. They are made by TeenyB Bikini Couture, a popular Brazilian bikini company whose motto is “Less Fabric, More Looks.” They have a huge assortment of incredible Brazilian cut bikinis in various styles, colors and prints.

Nude Bikini

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Sometimes the illusion of being nude can turn just as many heads as wearing a bikini adorned with many shiny things. A nude or flesh-toned bikini is the simplest of looks but has the power to cause a double-take. Really, if you thought you saw someone naked in public you’d look twice too. Each person’s version of nude varies depending on her skin tone but this trend is one that’s certainly worth considering.

Asymmetric Swimwear

Monday, December 13th, 2010

The one-shoulder and off-center looks in fashion are also found in the world of swimwear. For those who enjoy less conventional styles, asymmetric swimwear are popular sellers. For bikini tops, there are single-shoulder bandeaus and halter tops. As for the bottoms, instead of seeing trims on both sides, the embellishments can be found off to one side. Asymmetric one-piece suits can also be found and they offer serious style as well.

Layered Bikini

Monday, November 15th, 2010

The concept of a layered bikini can seem weird. After all, why would you want to wear more than necessary when you’re at the beach? I’m sure the designers aren’t actually creating suits with more than one layer, but instead are creating suits with that affect. Like with layering tops, a layered bikini creates a unique dimension

Beaded Bikini

Monday, November 8th, 2010

It may be hard to tell from the photo, but this halter top bikini is decorated with beading. Little decorative accents like shimmering beads can add subtle touches of glimmer to your suit. It’s not as evident as say, metallic fabric or sequins. This type of embellishment proves that a little can go a long way. So the next time you’re hunting for a bikini, maybe get one that’s a little more noticeable in the crowd.

Zig Zag Bikinis

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Bored of stripes? Go for zig zags! This edgy pattern has a bit more oomph than a classic stripe and definitely gets noticed for its ultra colorful and eye-catching look. Opt for two-tones or multicolored looks or even try mixing and matching with a solid white or black piece.

Retro Bikinis

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Every few years a bikini designer will travel back in time and relive the days of a previous decade. Funny enough, people actually enjoy these retro styles. These full coverage styles are in stark contrast to the popular minimalist styles that are a more predominant look at the beach. The retro look involves higher waistlines and full-coverage tops. The entire look is reminiscent of the looks of pin-up girls during the 40s, so if that look appeals to you, you’ll be able to fine plenty of suits.

Bikinis with Appliques

Monday, October 18th, 2010

Not sure what appliques are? Think Girl Scout badges and patches. They’re swatches of fabric in a pre-made design that are ready to be sewn onto anything, including bikinis. They add texture and added detail to a suit in a way that ruffles, sequins and beading cannot. Since they can be put anywhere, a triangle top doesn’t have to have the usual triangle shape to it, and because the applique can be shaped and made in almost any way, you can add extra dimension to your suit.

Rhinestone Bikini

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Sequins aren’t the only way to add shine to a suit! Rhinestones are an alternative type of accent to add sparkle to a suit, and what’s more, it offers more flexibility when it comes to design. Sequins have to be overlapped and sewn on whereas rhinestones get glued on. Design-wise, you have a lot more options, sizes and colors. In fact, you can even bling out your own bikini at home if you wanted.
