Wearing a White Bikini in Style

1. Shave and wax, a must!

A definite must to make sure that no unsightly and awkward moments will occur. A white swimsuit when in contact with water might make the material a bit transparent. Hence, being as smooth as a baby’s cheeks will help one wear a white bikini perfectly.

2. Choose a white bikini with quality and thicker material

Bikinis are not only for parading on the beach and one often wears them to get some action such as swimming or playing in the water. It is important to choose a bikini that is made of durable and thicker cloth material to avoid embarrassing slips or accidental tears. The thicker material will cover amply the private parts while a double layer of lining is likewise welcome!

3. Tanning will do wonders

A white bikini against a nicely tanned skin is will look look visually appealing making this iconic swimwear standout. For maximum effect, a natural tan first previous to wearing a white bikini is highly recommended. Fake spray tans will not only wash off with water or sweat, but could stain your white bikini.

4. Get toned.

Having a toned body will not only help one rock the white bikini of choice but it is also a great confidence booster for the wearer. Don’t shy away from simply workouts that help perk your core muscles and gluteus maximus (butt muscles).

5. Pair with a crocheted coverup and beach accessories

To add more drama to your white swimwear, such as a crocheted coverup in basic colors of cream, black and yes, even white will make your outfit stand out from the beach crowd. Beach fashion jewelry is also perfect like those made of shells in white, or even in colorful blues and orange. Crocheted cover-ups and playful jewelry add the additional style to the already fabulous and iconic white bikini.
