Summer is just around the corner, and many of us are looking forward to hitting the beach, soaking up some sun, and enjoying the warm weather. And what better way to enjoy that other than by wearing a bikini? While some people may be hesitant to dress in revealing swimwear, there are actually many benefits to wearing a bikini that you may not have considered.
Of course, one-piece swimsuits are always an option if you are a little too shy, but giving a bikini a go might just be the idea for this summer.
Unlike one-piece swimsuits, which can sometimes feel constricting or restrictive, bikinis offer more freedom of movement and allow you to feel the breeze on your skin. This is especially great if you plan on going to the beach instead of a pool, as the cool sea air just hits differently than anything else.
Not to mention, if you have sensory issues, bikinis are just way better. Once they are wet they don’t stick to your skin all over, just around your privates and the breast area, which is way more manageable, especially when it comes to taking it off. The feeling of a wet one-piece swimsuit sliding across your entire body can be a sensory nightmare, which is easy to avoid by just wearing bikinis. Although if you need some more accomodation in this regard, then I highly suggest checking out MIGA Swimwear.
Bikinis come in a wide variety of styles, colors, and patterns, which means you can find one that perfectly suits your body type and personal style. Whether you prefer a classic black bikini or a bright, bold and vivid print, there’s a bikini out there for you. You can mix and match tops and bottoms to create different looks, and you can also wear your bikini as a top with shorts or a skirt when you’re not at the beach. By doing the latter you will also look more put-together if you decide to visit a restaurant or bar while still in your swimwear, which is a requirement in some places, as they don’t serve people who are only wearing a bikini (bit skirt or shorts bottoms are just fine).
The tops are especially great, since they come in all shapes and forms. Much like with bras, you have plenty of options for support but for looks as well, and if you are looking for something more interesting then you can always find a top that is cut in a fun way.
Wearing a bikini can be intimidating, especially if you’re not used to showing off so much skin. But once you get over that initial discomfort, you may find that wearing a bikini actually boosts your confidence. When you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin, you’re more likely to enjoy yourself and have a good time, whether you’re lounging on the beach or playing volleyball in the surf.
And ladies, let’s be honest, we need to get over the shame over our bodies. We are absolutely perfect the way we are and in today’s world we have the option to show that off, so why not? This can be the first step for you to reclaim your confidence.
When you’re spending a day at the beach or by the pool, you want to be comfortable and practical. Bikinis are great for this because they’re easy to move around in and don’t trap sand or water like one-piece swimsuits can. They also dry quickly, which means you can get out of the water and back to lounging in the sun without feeling weighed down by wet fabric.
Not to mention, you can bring two tops and one bottom on a vacation and have two completely different looking beach looks. If that’s not practical, then what is?
Compared to other types of swimwear, bikinis are often more affordable. This is because they require less fabric to make, and there’s less material to support and structure the garment. This means you can find a stylish bikini without breaking the bank, that is still high in quality and can last you plenty of summers if you’d like.
The only types of bikinis that cost a little more are the ones designed for bigger busts, since they provide a lot more support and coverage. However, if you have a bigger chest then you can’t really get around this problem.
Let’s be completely honest, when you tan, you want your entire body to tan. By wearing a one-piece swimsuit you are missing a ton of spots, which can be fine in your everydays, but if you decide to wear a cropped top at one point, then it might look a bit weird.
Bikinis are perfect for tanning, they let plenty of your skin breathe, so that the sun can easily reach it. There are even bikinis that are tan-through, which means that they still provide coverage, but you can tan right through them. Of course, you should always apply sunscreen on a regular basis, since it can be really harmful to your skin if you burn it.
Everyone can look great in a bikini. And I really do mean everyone! Even if you have insecurities or spots that you would rather hide, I bet that there is still a two-piece swimsuit out there that is absolutely perfect for your needs.
For example, the most common issue for women is the need to hide their lower stomach. No issue, there are plenty of high-waisted bottoms that can cover you up a little, or there are even skirts, which will just completely hide your tummy.
