Different Types of Swimsuits

From cheeky string bikinis to vintage inspired high waisted silhouettes, with so many different styles on offer, the search for the perfect swimsuit can sometimes feel like an uphill battle. Whether you’re looking to dive into new season trends or switch up your look and experiment with something unique, differentiating between each style and knowing which to choose can be tricky.

We’re here to lend a helping hand and share our expert advice on the latest swimsuit trends and how to decide which style is best for you this summer.


Triangle Bikini Top

One of the most popular and versatile bikini styles is the triangle bikini. This style features an under bust tie and a neck tie, meaning it is fully adjustable to perfectly fit every figure and can be found in an endless array of prints, colours, and fabrics. The tie straps allow you to customise the fit for more or less coverage, depending on what makes you feel comfortable and the amount of support you need, making it the perfect pick for all your summer activities.

Bandeau Bikini Top

Ideal for lounging on a secluded beach or sitting poolside with a refreshing cocktail, the bandeau bikini top is a strapless style that sits across your bust. This style best suits those looking for a little less support, however, often features side boning or ruching for added wearability. Pair the bandeau top with a flowing maxi skirt or wide leg pants for the ultimate resort style look, made for early evening drinks or a stroll along the shore.

Strappy Bikini Top

The strappy bikini top is our go to pick to add a contemporary twist to your beach side ensemble. Usually in a bandeau or triangle style with multiple ways to tie the straps, you can make this look your own and experiment with new ways to wear it each time you hit the beach, giving more or less support and coverage.

High Cut Bikini Bottom

Universally flattering and easy to wear, the high cut bikini bottom accentuates your figure in all the right places. The vintage inspired high cut elongates your legs and sits at the smallest part of your waist, giving the most gorgeous silhouette. Pair these bottoms with your favourite style of bikini top in either a coordinating shade or mix and match colours and prints for a statement finish.

Tie Side Bikini Bottom

The tie side bikini bottom is our top pick if you’re looking for cheeky coverage and adjustable sizing. This style features two ties that sit at your hips, allowing you to tighten or loosen to find your perfect fit. We love pairing tie side bikini bottoms with the classic triangle top and experimenting with bold colours and patterns.
