The perfect bikini bottoms to sizzle in summer
Are you ready for summer? Make sure you've picked out your bikini before you hit the beach! Shopping for swimwear can be a seriously stressful experience – but it doesn't have to be. Nowadays, you can find just about every shape and cut of bikini you could possibly imagine. The key to finding the right style is limiting your options. Think about how much coverage you want. Some girls dare to bare almost everything, with ultra high-cut thong-styles. Others prefer more coverage; these days, cute bikini shorts or retro high-waisted full briefs are a popular choice. However, much flesh you want to flash, with a bit of care you'll be able to find the bikini bottom that's right.
Finding the right bikini bottom for you
Nervous about your body? Don't worry: Everyone on the beach feels the same! In the perfect bikini, you'll look fabulous and feel confident. If you'd rather keep your bum more tightly under wraps, avoid boy shorts: They can make it seem bigger. Instead, go for a high-leg, high-waisted pair of bottoms. These will give you a perkier backside and, because they cut across it, they can make it look smaller. For an athletic figure, try a high-waisted pair of briefs with full coverage. These can add curves to your body. Boy shorts are also a good way of emphasising your bum, making it look bigger if you feel that it's too small and flat. Remember to think about the colour, too. Prints will draw the eye, while solids are great if you don't want too much attention.
Mix and match bikini bottoms: The trend of the future
Don't feel that your bikini top and bottoms have to match! One hot modern trend is a mismatched bikini, which is also ideal if your top and bottom halves are of different sizes. Obviously, you don't want the styles to clash, but this can be a fun way to look relaxed and casual on the beach or by the pool. A good tip is to choose a print and a solid. The print should be worn on whichever part of the body you want to draw more attention to. Pick out one colour from the pattern and find a solid that matches it. This way, you'll be able to downplay your problem areas, while drawing attention to your favourite part of your body.
