White is an all time classic color swimsuit. While swimsuits can often be designed with other colors and prints in the mix, the brilliant pop of plain white fabric is the ultimate classic look.  White swimwear is classy, sexy and simple. It’s a look men are attracted to, as they don’t notice style, cut, fabric and embellishments the way women do. There are a wide array of designers that put out white swimsuits so you’ll never run out of swimsuit options if white is the color you seek.

This bikini is the classic triangle top style with side string tie bottoms. This is generally worn by a woman that is slender, although you can pull off this look if you are heavier but nonetheless athletic and toned.  You need to have a relatively small top for the triangle string top style. A large chest will bulge out the sides and bottom too much and the top will be too difficult to keep it’s place. There is nothing worse than constantly falling out of your top or having your chest peeking out the bottom of the top.  Proper fit is everything.

A white swimsuit should be fully lined

The way to look flattering in a white swimsuit is to first of all find one that is lined. It’s generally better to wear this for looks and style because if you do go into the water it will be see through. Be sure to check what this bikini looks like wet, or plan to get a whole lot of attention if you are in public in a wet white bikini. If you plan to swim, it needs to be fully lined so as to prevent it from getting too see-through.

Try a fake spray on tan to complement the white swimsuit

The way to compliment a classic white bikini is to get a nice deep tan to contrast off the white which makes it stand out. Do not get a real tan however, they rays are so unsafe as are the tanning beds. Try one of those spray on tans in the salon before you go on your vacation or during the time in the summer where you will be wearing that white bikini the most. The spray on tan lasts a about a week.

Another alternative is to get a gradual build tanning cream and slowly build up a glowing home golden fake tan. The only thing you must watch out for is to apply the cream when you are not wearing the bikini (like the night before). If you get that white bikini anywhere near tanning cream or spray that has yet to set, it will permanently stain the fabric.

White stains easily and its hard to remove tanning stains from a white swimsuit so be careful. I love the quick spray on tan like Sally Hanson but you should avoid this if you plan to promptly put on a white bikini because you might get the tan stuff on the bikini. Get that tan in place well before you wear the bikini so it doesn’t bleed onto the material.

fredericks-bikiniThis smoking hot two piece bikini from Fredericks of Hollywood gives us plenty of good swimwear tips to talk about.  Fredericks knows how to work the sexy and you see it 100% in this little number.  Several points to make about this hot boyshort style swimsuit.

Zippers on a bikini are so hot, as demonstrated by Fredericks of Hollywood on this boyshort inspired two piece bikini

Unique details on a bikini are what makes it stand out from all the rest.  If you want to go above and beyond the basic bikini you need to find one with style accents that set it apart.  Look no further!  The totally sexy zippers cutting across this bikini top and then up the front of the boyshorts screams hot, hot, hot.  It is unique, and it has sex appeal.   Sexy zippers are indeed tools of a seductress.

Adorable touches like the white color, cutouts and zippers rock this swimsuit

Two adorable touches are the cutouts that reveal skin at the top of the triangle top, and the boyshort style bottom.  You would think a boy-short is less sexy than a scoop bottom but this swimsuit proves otherwise.  What makes it incredibly hot is that the white color spells feminine and the boy-short spells I am different.  The girl that marches to the beat of her own fashion drum will literally seek a bikini like this one out.  She knows how to stand out from a crowd and her one of a kind bikini is going to make men drop their jaw.

Boyshort style makes a woman with a boyish figure look instantly more curvy

Enough about the sexy and unique style of this bikini, something only Fredericks of Hollywood could dream up, lets look at the boy short style bottoms in general.  Boy shorts, especially in a light color like this,  are not for the faint of heart figured.  Hands down, white boy-shorts are the hardest bikini bottoms to look good in.  If you have a flaw, it will show.

Boyshorts by nature are not flattering on most woman.  That means for the lucky few that have the figure with which to pull it off, she’ll really look incredible.  The general advice is to avoid them unless you are very, very slender through the hips.   Women that look hot in boyshorts are generally tall, and thin, with narrow slim hips.  If you have a boyishly slenderish waif figure, boy-shorts can actually make you look like you have more curves and be flattering. If however, you have hips, jiggle or junk, the boy short will only serve to attract attention down to that area and magnify the junk in the trunk problem.

They call them boyshorts for a reason.  They look good on a boyish figure – tall, slender, narrow through the hips.  If this is you, try a hot boyshort swimsuit like this to make yourself look more curvy and feminine.  You can pull off the white because you’ve got the slender body to put it against.  If on the other hand, you’re trying to avoid figure flaws in the trunk junk area, avoid this one style altogether.  Stick to darker colors and a scoop style bottom instead.

Swimsuit coverups are stylish and sexy and can hide figure flaws.  If you want to hide fat arms, fat tummy, fat thighs, or fat bottom, try a sheer lightweight cover-up over your swimsuit.  Solid color cover-ups that are sheer, mesh, flowing and feminine are going to make you look ten pounds thinner and hide your problem zones.

Swimsuit coverups

There are various styles you can try to help hide flaws and give you a bit of modesty and sun protection.  A color that matches the swimsuit and especially solid color cover-ups can have the best slenderizing effects.  Try different styles including sarongs, tunics, wrap around skirts, and bathing suit cover-ups.  My favorite figure flattering look is a light weight sheer or mesh cover-up in a solid color that matches the swimsuit.  This can look casual yet sexy at the same time.  It is way more flattering than boxy terry cloth or sweats.

Think feminine, flirty, and flowing when it comes to coverups.  To hide heavy arms or flab on arms choose a long sleeve sheer style.  As you can see if the material is lightweight it still looks beach appropriate and can flatter your figure.  A long sheer shirt or a flirty and fun sun dress can make you look infinitely more sexy than sweats or a moo-moo kaftan.   Try light colors for a sunny fresh look or dark colors that are sheer and contrast with the swimsuit. 

Plus size alternative try a sheer sexy top over a bikini or sexy one piece swimsuit

Some women skip the bikini because they are embarrassed of their figure.  However, a well fitted bikini with a sexy cover-up can in some cases look more flattering than a frumpy plus size bikini with a built-in skirt.  Cover-ups give the plus size woman more options to work with in bikinis and one piece swimwear before having to move into the traditionally tacky plus size choices.  Try different combinations and don’t give up on finding a winning swimsuit and cover-up combination that is perfect for your body type.
