Types of Bikinis to Choose From

There are different types of bikinis with different styles, shapes, and texture. In this article we talk about them and which one suits you best based on your aesthetic characteristics. 

An ideal bikini is one that best suits your body type. Taking into account your strengths and the characteristics of your body are some of the aspects for choosing the type of bikini that best suits you, in order to get the most out of it. Before you buy bikinis online, consider the following types and choose what suits you the best.

What are the types of bikinis and which one suits you best?

To discover it, we will first talk about the four areas of the body that are most relevant when choosing the most suitable bikini and that best favors the silhouette.

1. Chest

The chest is an area of ​​the body where we look a lot when choosing a bikini that suits us. If you are a little-breasted girl, you better choose bikinis with a heart-shaped neckline. In addition, wearing bikinis with fringes or frills on the top, as well as prints is a good way to enhance the chest. If on the contrary, you are bustier, the best option is a bikini with a bow top, bra style or V-shaped neckline.

You should avoid bikinis with the top in the form of a triangle. On the color, opt for matte colors and avoid the use of white or pastel colors because they emphasize the features even more.

2. Hips

The hips are also part of a critical area in the choice of which bikini suits you best since certain shapes or colors can greatly accentuate our hips.

If you have wider hips and you have a rather prominent and bulky butt, opt for bottoms of the bikini with dark or even black colors, in addition to a plain print. This is a way to focus more attention on the top of the bikini.

If on the contrary, you have narrower hips, a wonderful option is to choose bottoms with bows or ribbons on the sides. This way you will enhance your hips. In addition, fluorine or bright colors enhance the rear area and are therefore a good option.

3. Waist

The waist in women determines the curves of the body. That means a prominent waist usually leads to more marked curves. In contrast, softer and smoother waists usually involve more tummy and straight figures.

If you have a tiny waist, there is no swimsuit that wouldn’t suit you, since any type of bikini usually looks good with this type of figure. If instead, you are plus-sized, it is a good idea to choose either a two-piece bikini with the very high bottom or choose a one-piece swimsuit.

DARK COLORED CLOTHES VS LIGHT COLORED CLOTHES – WHICH ARE BETTER?

If you are a curious person, you might have asked yourself or someone else why astronauts wear white. You might have thought the same about brides and if you are too curious, about Tom Wolfe. Is there anything in common? We don’t think so, but the matter that we wanted to bring to the front using this example is this: light-colored clothes or a suit allow you to stay cool by fighting the heat and the light. The lighter the clothes are the cooler you will be and the darker the clothes the hotter you will be. That is the age-old myth that is rampant in society even today. Whether you shop at a brick and mortar store or an online fashion store, you have these things at the back of your mind. There might have been a dress that you liked a lot but didn’t buy it because of this assumption.

Is there any truth to it? Let’s find out.

The Assumption

This is what we assume about our clothes. If we wear dark fabrics, they will absorb a great amount of heat and this will cause you to feel all hot and bothered. But if you wear white or light-colored clothes, then the heat will bounce right off of them and you will be extremely comfortable even on a hot day. Some people even believe that brides wear white on their wedding day due to this reason. 

Well, we are here to tell you that everything is not as it seems in this theory. There are other major factors that greatly affect the working of heat on your clothes. The story is not as simple as it seems. Some scientists who were really curious about this phenomenon thought about actually doing some research about it. The results that they got, stated that the color of the clothes that you wear doesn’t matter. In 1980, a group of scientists tried to find out why Bedouins who live in the desert wear black robes? Now the desert is where it is the hottest and according to our heat absorption and reflection theory, they should have been wearing white, pink or lilac, or some other light shade.

The Findings

What the researchers’ findings had them as bewildered as we are when they found that the Bedouins of the Sinai desert always wear black instead of light-colored fabrics in the oppressive heat of the desert. They set out to find the truth and even recruited a volunteer who they asked to stand in the heat in the middle of the desert so that they can record the temperature. They asked him to stand in four different types of dressings and found that the effects of heat on the body were the same in all types of clothing. They found that black clothes absorb more heat but it didn’t go any farther than the fabric. In simple terms, it can be said that although black fabric absorbs more heat, it is lost before it gets a chance to transfer into the body. A factor that they found kept the guy cool was that he wore robes that were loose and billowing. This allowed air to pass through the clothes and keep the body cool.

When you think summer fashion, you probably have shorts on top of your wish list. These garments have a cool and comfortable vibe that makes them just apt for the sweltering months of the year. Obviously, most of the fashionistas end up packing away their shorts when the winter sets in. But is there a way you can wear your favorite garment even when it is freezing cold? Yes, there is! This is a great thing is for women who want to flaunt their shorts during winter as well. Here are some style tips to help.

Wear a pair of tights underneath

The biggest problem with wearing shorts in winter is that your legs are uncovered and you may feel very cold. But this should not stop you from making a style statement with the garment that you love the most. Just wear a pair of warm tights underneath and rock the winter look like a style diva. In fact, a pair of leather shorts worn with black tights beneath makes a great outfit for a night out in the winter season.

Step up your style with boots

Another way to accessorize your shorts and make them winter-ready is by teaming them up with a pair of high boots. Try knee-length boots made in leather or suede if you want to feel warm and look stylish. What’s more, you can wear warm woolen socks inside and beat the chill in the air. The best part is that your socks will not be visible at all and neither will interfere with your fashionable and chic look.

Pair with a long coat

Wouldn’t it be a smart idea to pair your shorts with a stylish long coat? You can pick one in tweed or wool and slip it over a tee and your favorite pair of shorts. The ensemble can be worn day and night to give you all the comfort you need and add to your style quotient as well. Besides a classic long black coat, you can also try playing with colors such as red, pink and green with the piece you choose for layering.

Great Gifts for an Active Mom

This time of year, I’m always seeing lists about the best gifts for mom. See, I’m even making one. But the truth is, not all moms are alike, and you know best your mom’s personality. A “makeup and jewelry” kind of mom? Flowers, chocolate? Maybe she wants to sleep in and get a massage. (Hint, that’s pretty much everyone, all the time.) Some of that stuff can be sort of a “cop-out”, just going through the motions. Your mom did (and likely still does) a lot for you- make her feel special on days meant to celebrate her. (Dads, if you have very young kids, you are in charge here. Do something besides that macaroni necklace they made in school, yeah?)

As an active mom myself, and one that wears pretty much zero makeup or fussy things like that, I wouldn’t personally love a bottle of perfume or nail polish. I also try to be as eco-friendly as possible, and my family knows that’s important to me. I’m guessing to a lot of other moms out there as well.

Since many “idea” lists focus on candy and makeup, we here at [email protected] thought there should be one with other options out there. This list is for the active mom, eco friendly mom, who is a little less traditional, but pretty cool in her own rights.

Sand Cloud, an environmentally aware company that donates %10 of it’s profits to #SaveTheFishes (help protect and preserve marine life) offers a wide array of items that are sustainable, adorable, and environmentally friendly. From super useful items mom will love like reusable glass bottles with beautiful and fun designs on them to metal straws that you can take anywhere (avoid those unnecessary plastic ones that end up in the nostrils of poor sea turtles and washed up on beaches), soft towels with lovely artwork, or organic tees and tanks, there is something your earth conscious mom will love.  These items are not only beautiful, but useful. In addition, a percentage from each purchase is given to a charity- I can’t think of a mother that wouldn’t be pleased that Mother Earth is also gifted on this special day.  Visit https://www.sandcloud.com to see their collections, and pick out a perfect gift for the moms in your life.

reusable bottle

Yoga lover? Me too, we hit the mat almost daily, it is one of the best ways to center yourself and have a few minutes of peace. It’s fantastic for both mind and body, and if you haven’t yet tried it out, there’s always today. The hype is there for a reason. It’s good stuff. Slightly Buddha is a yoga company for yoga lovers, by yoga lovers. The items on the site are simple, pretty, and express the ideas of living a zen lifestyle. They make, as they describe them, “well made, cute clothes” that offer value to the customer. As the owner describes the collection, “Slightly Buddha is a manifestation of my love for yoga, art and clothes.”  The clothing is soft and comfortable. Pay attention to sizing, as I find that they don’t run typically. Some say that they run large, so you will get the “heads up”, so to speak. Others don’t mention, but you can tell that they run slim. Joggers, for example, are less loose then any others I’ve had, and fit more like leggings, which you can see in the photos. They are perfect for a yoga class, however, so that may be why the design is different. The tanks are also a slim fit, but are a nice feel. Pay attention to the photos and the reviews, they are honest and helpful.  Visit https://www.slightlybuddha.com to see what strikes you- your mom will love the graceful designs that are easy to mix and match, and go from the studio to the couch to errand running and beyond.
