What to Look For When Shopping for A Bikini

Shopping for a bikini is a process, but it doesn’t have to be a difficult one. Unfortunately, it almost always is. Continue reading for tips on how to find the best bikini and what to look for when shopping for a bikini.

Size Matters

It is so important that you get a bikini that fits you well. You don’t want to be uncomfortable and have your boobs spilling out. But you also don’t want it to be too big and saggy. Don’t be afraid to try on multiple sizes, even if they are not your usual size. Different brand bikinis may be measured slightly different, and therefore they will fit slightly different.

Material

Odds are you do not want something totally sheer, if you do that is totally fine. SOGOMART recommend you make sure when you are shopping you know what material is used in your bikini, especially if you are allergic to latex. It is important to always try your bikini on so that you can see if the material is comfortable and breathable enough for you. After all, it is summer, time to be comfortable.

Coverage

I know, it seems counterintuitive, but you want something that will cover you decently. I would not recommend getting a tiny, stringy bikini that will easily slip out of place and expose you. These types of bikinis are fine in general, it is just very important you find one that fits right so that it won’t move very much.

Support

If you are one of the many women with a large bust, you know how important support is. Bikinis with good support can be the difference between a fun day at the beach and a nightmare come true.

Functionality

Sure, it might be cute, but if you can’t actually swim in the bikini, what good is it? So many people get focused on the way it looks and completely disregard the whole purpose of a bikini, to swim. One of the hottest summer styles, off the shoulder bikinis, can be difficult to swim in because you cannot really lift your arms. Keep functionality in mind when you are shopping for a bikini.

Almost everything else when it comes to bikinis is pure opinion based. There are tons of styles, from strapless, to string, to off the shoulder and knit bikinis. The design and pattern on your bikini is totally up to you, but you should get something you like and will actually wear. Bikinis can be pricey, depending on where you shop, so why would you not get one you’d actually wear? My biggest piece of advice is to actually try on the bathing suit before you decide to invest in it. If you decide to shop online, try to shop from a site with a good return policy, just in case you do not like it or it doesn’t fit. Most importantly, make sure to have lots of fun at the beach this summer in your new bikini!
