The swimsuit have become more and more popular among women of all ages, so there’s no wonder we see more and more girls wearing one-piece swimsuits rather their good old holiday bikini. What about you? Which is your favourite beachwear? Do you really need to belong to one of these two teams?
The current fashion trend has resulted in a wide array of styles, colours and shapes of swimsuits. Women have a wider choice, so they are more inclined to give up their bikini and embrace the one-piece swimwear style.
There are many situations in which a swimsuit can be a wiser decision than a bikini. Swimming, beach volleyball and jet-skiing are only a few of these activities that call for a one-piece swimwear. If you are holidaying with toddlers or infants, you may also be better off with a swimming costume, as it would enable you to move freely to run various errands, to run, to swim and to play with your children in the sand. You can forget about those relaxing beach holidays when you lie on a sun lounger for the most part of the day.
If you don’t really like the shape of your stomach, you may want to choose a swimming costume over a bikini. One-piece swimsuits offer much better tummy control. In addition, such an outfit can make you look more stylish and fashionable, being therefore a better option for a day out to a beach holiday club. Swimsuits can also be better for hiding medical conditions, if you don’t feel comfortable showing certain aspects of your body. For example, swimsuits now come with the option of post-mastectomy swimwear for those would feel more comfortable in this.
Even though swimsuits are on the rise, the bikini remains quite popular to this day. We have to admit that being able to show those body parts you hide for the most part of the year is truly liberating. By wearing a bikini, you can enjoy getting a sun tan on your tummy. While too much sun exposure isn’t good for you, there’s nothing wrong with getting some safe and sensible tanning.
Bikinis will always dry quicker than a swimsuit after swimming in the pool or in the sea. Besides, they offer you an excellent opportunity to mix and match various colours, styles and shapes. A bikini top is one of the best ways to add some support and shape your breast, making you look your best and enhancing your self-confidence.
Many people share this wrong belief that as you age, a time comes when you have to give up your beloved bikini in favour of one-piece swimsuits. We can’t agree with this. If you want to make the transition to a swimsuit, do it my all means. However, if you still like how you look in your bikini, there’s no reason why you should give up your favourite beachwear style. Let people think what they want, as their thoughts are none of your business.
