When it comes to spending time at the beach, or by the pool, sometimes less is more! A minimal bikini coverage is a fun look to rock whilst you’re out and about but it can be a daunting look to try out so how do you pull it off? The minimal bikini is not a look for wallflowers, it takes a lot of confidence to wear it out and about – you’ll certainly be noticed! But the micro trend is catching on so if you’re interested in rocking the latest fashion, read on to find out how to make the look work for you.
What is a minimal bikini?
You might have seen the odd minimal bikini on the beach, or maybe not depending on where you live. A minimal bikini coverage is basically a swimsuit that uses much less fabric than normal. They are designed to keep coverage at a minimum on both the top and the bottom and can be a little bit more risqué than fuller coverage swimsuits. They usually don’t have much coverage around the bust and are usually cut into a high thong on the bottom which means they can be very revealing and don’t usually have much support built in, so bustier ladies might want to avoid the minimal bikini look. In addition to not having very much fabric, minimal bikini designs often include metallic or sheet fabrics. Depending on the colour choice and design, they can look very fashionable and have become very popular with celebrities.
Who should wear them?
This can be a hard look to pull off for those who are a bit bustier as there is not much coverage or support. Those with larger busts or derriere’s may find that they are uncomfortable in minimal bikini coverage because it does not support them well enough or provide enough coverage. This is a look that can leave you feeling a little bit exposed. If you need a little bit of support look for options with thicker straps or a little bit more fabric as this will make you feel like you have more coverage. Women who are lean or thin will find this style works really well for them as it will accentuate curves and look very flattering. Curvy women will also find this look can be quite flattering because of its high cut and string style but may want to opt for more support on top. Whether or not you wear this look may also depend on where you live, as some people may react strongly to it in public areas because it can be quite risqué.
Why should you try this lookout?
This is a great look to try out if you hate unsightly tan lines or too much fabric. A micro swimsuit can give you a very high fashion look and is one of the hottest trends on the beach this year. It’s the perfect choice for hot climates, for days by the pool or for getting around in the summer.
Where do I buy one?
A lot of people are now jumping onto the trend and so many stores are now stocking the design. It’s a great idea to visit the stores of some of your favourite swimwear designers to try it on and see which cuts look good on your body. Trying the style for yourself can help you to work out which designs work for you and which make you feel uncomfortable or don’t suit your body shape. Once you’ve found a cut you like you should also have a look online.
