The annual 2014 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue is now out on the newsstands! Featuring 3 popular SI cover models on the front of the mag and a Kate Upton zero gravity shot on the back of the mag, this SI issue rocks the beauty and gives you glimpse of the most popular swimsuit styles for 2014.
SI Swimsuit trends – bigger thong style bikini bottoms
The SI 2014 swimsuit issue shows us that one fashion mainstay is still here but now with an updated twist to it. It’s the thong-style bikini, and it is still in vogue. However, this is not by any stretch the same skimpy string cut we remember in the past years. Instead, the newer bikini bottom thong-style has a decidedly bigger expanse of fabric to it, especially at the hips. More of the area is covered with these new styles.
The twist of the new thong-style bikini bottom is that it has just a peekaboo look to it where the bottom cheeks peek out, but otherwise the bikini bottom has relatively good coverage. It’s a cheeky peek-a-boo look, with a more covered bottom overall. I like it.
And of course, always in style is a big smile
Aside from the new sexy bikini bottom rear view styles, there is one swimsuit fashion statement that never goes out of style in swimwear – your smile! Here, an SI rookie gives a great smile while rocking a colorful bikini for SI mag. Of course, beachy hair styled naturally in long tousled waves and a protective sun hat add to the cool summer look. It’s Fabulous!
Check out SI for more cutting edge swimwear ideas. Their swimsuit issue of course is for the younger girl with a perfect bod, but nevertheless the issue always gives great ideas for color and styles that you could translate into a one-piece swimsuit or styles with more coverage. It also shows you who the hippest swimsuit designers are for the year, and gives you a glimpse of the most popular swimsuit styles.
Those swimwear designers and manufacturers whose swimsuits are featured in the SI magazine also make more conservative swimsuits you can shop for online and purchase, so it helps to know who is who in the world of swimsuit design. It’s always good to keep up with the trends and SI swimsuit issue always delivers!
