If at the beginning, the bathing suit had to cover as much as possible from the body, at present it is sufficient for it to be made a patch of material. The V-shaped bikini pattern is becoming more fashionable. In antiquity, for most cultures, swimming was done either in Eve’s costume or in pieces of material that resembled faces that covered the intimate parts.
A Short History
In the Middle Ages, bathing was severely discouraged, so that in the eighteenth century, it was considered immoral and dangerous for health because of the alleged illnesses and infections it would have caused. In the Victorian era, bathing suits resembled outdoor clothing, they were cumbersome. They wore hats and long-sleeved dresses with some sort of underpants made of wool materials that did not become transparent in contact with water and whose only purpose was to protect the ladies’ bodies from exposure to the sun. No woman among the aristocrats wanted to tan, while the bronze was specific to the working class. As for the man’s suit, and he of wool, he brings a pajamas in one piece, covering the body from the knees and elbows to the neck. The beginning of the twentieth century changed the public perception of bathing in public spaces, swimming becoming a legitimate leisure activity, and the special outfit for the swamp took shape. From the women’s costume, the hats and gloves were removed, the standard clothing covering only the torso, arms and legs. A decade later, the true transition took place, the sleeves disappearing and the size of the trousers pulled down. Women began to look for swimming not only as a leisure opportunity, but also as a sporting competition. As a result, the swimsuit has been adapted to the new sport so it is comfortable and improve swim speed. Since then, the bathing suit has grown in size and has grown more and more on the body, despite objections from the conservatives and those who support the concept of morality. In the 20’s, one-piece variations appeared, exposing both arms and legs, which were fashionable until 1946, when Louis Réard, a French automotive engineer who became a fashion designer, launched the piece of clothing which has resisted to date: bikini. Named after the Bikini Atoll, the place where, after the end of the Second World War, the Americans detonated 23 nuclear bombs, motivating that they expected the new fashion to “explode” on the beaches of the world.
Bathing suit – illusion of a perfect body?
Women love to look great every time, and bathing suits contribute to highlighting or diminishing a look, just like any other accessory. There are many styles of bathing suits that match both trends in fashion and different body shapes. It is well known that women have different bodies and therefore require different styles of swimwear. No one is perfect, but a fitting bathing suit can create the illusion of a perfect body.
The latest trends in swimwear are absolutely wonderful and are very varied. Vintage and modern styles allow women to choose their swim suit according to their preferences and personal style.
Bear in mind (Guide to buying the perfect swimsuit):
– Choose a swimsuit in one piece or two, depending on your preference.
– If you choose a two-piece swimsuit, try to choose one with a cut that highlights your legs and creates an effect of stretching them, balancing your silhouette. The bottom should be darker than the top to distract.
– Tankini swimsuits ( which consist of a slip and a larger top ) is ideal for women with a beautiful waist but who do not like their hips or their breasts.
– If you choose a swimsuit in a piece, try one with a colored top print or one with a drawing to attract attention.
For women with a larger bust:
– Women with a large bust should be careful about the protection that the bathing suit offers. Big boobs need the right suit to look great. Choose a two-piece swimsuit with a top that binds to the neck so that it gives you the support your breast needs.
– If you want a swimsuit in one piece, choose one with an extra cup holder.
For women with a small bust:
– If you have a small bust, try to choose a smaller bathing suit, such as the Brazilian, because it gives the body the balance it needs.
– If you choose a two-piece swimsuit, make sure you pick one with a push-up bra, because it gives the illusion of a bigger bust.
– Choose a trendy outfit with a deep cleavage.
How about a one-piece swimsuit for the summer?
Long considered nerdy, the one-piece swimsuit has been able to reclaim its place among our closets in recent seasons. On the initiative of its comeback, the creators. After reworking it and bringing it up to date, the one-piece swimsuit has become a new object of desire for lounging on the beach this summer.
Sober, elegant, with retro glamor, it refines the silhouette with a chic and feminine look, but it can also be very sexy. Like his colleague the bikini, the one-piece swimsuit strictly follows the trends. It incorporates essential floral, graphic prints, surfs on the Californian and panther motif, and does not forget to use key details such as sequins, frills, zips and fringes.
On the cutting side, he knows how to show originality. In a sport version, it evokes the wet-suits and the sportsmen’s jerseys. In a retro spirit, it adopts bustier or push up forms like the pin-ups of the 50s, while the romantic style sports seventies influences, with frills and fringes. No matter how he looks, he has an eye for detail. Whether in the back, on the hips or at the straps, the one-piece swimsuit is adorned with geometric cutouts.
For those who prefer something more eccentric, do not hesitate to look at models with psychedelic tie-dye prints and why not a neon swimsuit. Now that we are talking about colors, they oscillate between a vitamin palette and neutral tones, there is no rule. Now you just have to choose.
Two Piece Swimsuits
You are thinking of renewing your accessories, beach bags, your summer wardrobe and this expensive two-piece swimsuit. Now the choice of this essential gives you a hard time. From plain to ethnic print, from classic style to slimming retro drape, the bikini is available in all forms and adapts to all tastes. Do you feel lost in this ocean of ever more trendy models? Do you want a flattering swimsuit for your figure, true to your desires? Follow our tips to find the best bikini.
The morphology of women is classified into six categories, of course, there is no question of falling into stereotypical stereotypes! However, taking certain characteristics into account guides you in the best choices.
Your silhouette is shaped like an “A” also called “pyramid”, if your shoulders are narrower than your hips. Generally, the size of your pants is larger than that of your blazers. Prefer a push-up or a crochet bra to give volume to the chest. On the other hand, if you want to accentuate your hips, a triangle worn with high-waisted pants are an ideal combination.
You are a round woman with generous shapes and tend to hide your belly? Dare a glamorous frame tankini. Women with very large breasts will love a minimized swimsuit top that provides good support. Team it with a draped high waist or a flatter belly effect. Models, like Ashley Graham, take on their curves, so don’t hide them too much!
If you have a thin waist and your shoulders and hips are in the same alignment, your shape is “H”. Aim for a scarf swimsuit top or even a strapless bustier, combined with low-waisted panties or shorties.
A very thin, thin waist, a small chest, shoulders that line up with your hips? You are definitely in the shape of an “X”. Turn to headbands, a padded balcony, panties with ruffles or pleated sides. Thus, your chest and hips will be visually more accentuated.
Do you have broad shoulders, more than your hips? The size of your blazers is often larger than that of your pants? Your athletic figure is in a “V” shape. If you want to volumize your hips, bet on a triangle or a wrap associated with a bikini bottom with cuff.
Is your figure reminiscent of an hourglass shaped like an “8”? Your build is similar to the “X” in the alignment of the shoulders and your hips with the difference that your waist is very marked. Basically, you already know that you can afford it, admit it! From thong with knots, to Brazilian, via the timeless Bardot headband. Let yourself be tempted by an original quilted material or a top with a scalloped edge.
Also remember that the pieces of a set do not necessarily have identical sizes. So, if you have the possibility to compose your bikini, do not hesitate to adapt the sizes according to your morphology. During your tanning session or at the end of your breaststroke, by following these tips you will not leave anyone indifferent.
Types Of Cutouts For Women’s Swimwear
Women’s swimsuits can be differently cut at the bottom. If the swimsuit is marked “high cut”, it is very cut. This type visually extends the legs, but this should not be pleasant for everyone. The “low cut” marking, on the other hand, indicates a smaller cutout of the swimsuit. The cutout is marked on both full and two-piece swimsuits.
For women’s swimsuits is valid – choose what is comfortable for you. If your swimsuit is tight during the test, do not rely on the fact that it will become lighter in the water. In the case of swimwear for training and training, we recommend that you choose the types of braces shown in the image above. The fact that they are attached to the shoulder blades guarantees that they will not fall off the shoulders while swimming.
