The modern bikini came about in 1946 at a French fashion show. Though women have been wearing similar types of clothing in different cultures for millenia, the French (and everyone else) still found the sight of all that skin scandalous. Thankfully, our culture has gotten over that shock, and women's bikinis are a staple anywhere sun and water are to be found.
Yes, Everyone Looks Good in Swimwear!
Despite what you might hear, bikinis do not have age limits or body type specifications. If you feel comfortable wearing a bikini, then you're sure to find your new favorite at thredUP. Bikinis come with many coverage options and clasp varieties, and lots of fun patterns. We've got cute swimsuits in all shapes, sizes, and styles. Whether you need cups with underwire or want a little string thing, we've got you covered!
We love bikinis with a bit of bling. Bottoms with little metal rings at the waistband, and tops with a bit of sparkle always stand out on the beach. Metallic material is another way to turn heads in your favorite bikini. Of course, one pieces with ties and metal accents can look just as sexy, so consider mixing up your swimsuits on a beach vacation by buying several options.
Bikini Brands We Love
At thredUP, you'll discover lots of popular bikini brands like Victoria's Secret. VS is a great brand to look for when you need a top that will hold your assets and make them look their best. Whether you're craving some extra padding or need full coverage, a VS swimsuit is a great buy.
Old Navy is another brand where you can find a wide variety of bikini options. Low-cut necklines, strapless, and ruffles are just a few options. Tankinis at Old Navy are also very cute, especially the strapless options that emphasize your shape with twists or cups at the top.
How to Accessorize Women's Bikinis
You might feel more comfortable with some sort of cover when walking to and from the pool, lounging beneath an umbrella, and heading to the beach bar for drinks. If you'd like some extra coverage on your lower half, board shorts are a wonderful item to pull on over your bikini bottoms. Consider wearing a bikini top with board shorts if you're a little self conscious about your bottom half. You certainly don't need to be, but we understand wanting to show a little less skin.
Fabric cover ups are versatile. Many are either small dresses or long wraps you can style in a variety of ways. Walk to the pool comfortably with your cover up on, or use a cover up at the beach when the sun gets a little too hot and you don't want to burn.
Because bikinis are seasonal in brick and mortar shops, you might not be able to find one you like before a winter vacation. Hit up thredUP for year-round bikini stock at 90% off estimated retail prices from your favorite designers.
