Halter Bandeau Bikini

Monday, November 29th, 2010

Every woman’s bikini assortment should include some variety and that doesn’t have to mean in just colors. There are some unique bikini top and bottom styles now being designed that help you to stand out in the crowd. If you’re tired to wearing triangle and halter tops, there’s the halter bandeau to consider. While the bandeau is usually a strapless style, this alternative adds a halter strap to allow for support in the top. I like that the centers of these tops allow for some creative detail like a keyhole or other delicate design.

Wrapped Halter Top Bikini

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Halter tops have always been a popular choice for women, but if you’re getting tired of the style, the top has taken a new twist. Halters are new being designed with extended back ties to allow the wearer to wrap the straps around the torso before tying at the back. The design details may differ from designer to designer but the look is an added wrapped strap just under your bust line to add a little something extra to the look of your suit.

Plaid Bikini

If you’re mad for preppy plaid, be happy that they’re available in swimwear form as well.  I never really understood the craze for crazy crisscrossing colors but to each his own.  I think if it’s done in a sensible way that it’s fine.  But if it’s an over-the-top, Paul-Bunyan-esque way, not so much.  It would be overkill, much the way a giant flashing neon sign is.  So when it comes to plaid, stick to normal crosshatching and a small mix of colors, anything beyond that will make people cover their eyes.

Bikini or lingerie?

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

We all know what lingerie looks like, and we all know what bikinis look like, but is the line defining the two starting to blur?  At first glance this mauve masterpiece looks like lacy lingerie but slowly a question mark starts to form overhead and you realize it is, in fact, a bikini!  I love the details, the color, the ties but I wonder if it’s the type of bikini that you’d actually want to wear in the water.  As beautiful as it is, I’d likely not want to ruin it by swimming around in salt water or chorine.  What about you? Would you splash around in this two-piece wonder or just model it while tanning in the sun?
