What are the benefits of wearing a string bikini?

String Bikinis Can be worn in multiple ways 

The classic triangle bikini can be worn multiple ways.  The bottoms can sit low on the hips or pull up high for a trendy, high-leg look.  A triangle string bikini top can be worn five different ways, all giving off a different vibe.  Check out our blog to learn new ways to tie a triangle string bikini top.

String bikinis are Almost Always Adjustable

The classic triangle string bikini is adjustable.  The bikini bottoms have ties on the sides, and the most traditional style of the top ties behind the neck and behind the back.  It's such a nice staple to have in your summer wardrobe because you can adjust the way it fits you when both styles and our bodies change.  We embrace the ever-changing seasons and even more so love having adaptable staples.

Why are string bikinis flattering?

String Bikinis have Minimal Fabric

Triangle bikinis tend to use less fabric, showing more skin and giving a sleek and sexy vibe.

String Bikinis offer Flattering Fits

The shape of the triangle on the busts shows the outline of the breast and just enough cleavage.  The cut of string bikini bottoms can vary, but typically is a bit on the cheeky side. 

Can size string bikinis up and down depending on preference

One fantastic aspect of string bikinis is their versatility.  If you prefer more coverage simply order the next size up.  Care to have a little less coverage? Buy a size down.  With the suit being fully adjustable, the main difference between sizes will be fabric coverage.

Styles of string bikini tops

Adjustable triangle string bikini top

String bikini tops don't all look the same, but the one common theme is triangle cutouts and thin strings.  The straps can be fixed in place or completely adjustable by having ties behind the neck and back.  We love the flexibility that accompanies adjustable strings so as not to have to commit to one particular fit or chance it fitting poorly.

Padding or no padding

When triangle string bikini tops were first coming out, most had removable padding.  As a more natural look has come into style, so has the emergence of more swimwear pieces being padding-free.
