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.
