With the arrival of the Summer Season, it's time to tackle one of the most common dilemmas in the world of swimwear fashion: finding the perfect bikini for your body shape. But fear not, because we at Looca Swim have prepared a guide to help you navigate this important choice. Here are five key points to consider:

1 - Know Your Body Shape

The first step to finding the perfect bikini is knowing your body shape. Our bodies have unique shapes and characteristics that influence the type of bikini that suits us best. For example, if you have a "pear" shape with wider hips, you might opt for a bikini with high-waisted bottoms to emphasize the waist and reduce attention on the hips. If you have a slender figure and an athletic physique, a bandeau bikini with Brazilian-cut bottoms can further elongate your figure.

2 - Consider Bra Support, a Matter of Comfort

Bra support is essential to ensure comfort and security. If you have a larger bust, opt for a bikini with cupped or underwire tops for optimal support. If you have a smaller bust, you can experiment with triangle tops or bandeaus without underwire. However, Looca Swim triangle bikinis come with removable cups that adapt to various needs.

3 - Understand the Importance of Coverage

Coverage is another important aspect to consider. If you feel comfortable with minimal coverage, thong or Brazilian-cut bikinis might be ideal. If you prefer more coverage, bikinis with high-waisted bottoms or shorts can be the best choice. Also to consider is that tanning goes hand in hand with coverage, so many of Looca Swim's bikinis are adjustable with ties both at the bottom and top, which allows you to manage the coverage level to favor tanning.

4 - Choose the Right Colors and Prints

Colors and prints can make a big difference in how the bikini fits your body shape. Dark colors tend to have a slimming effect, while bold prints can draw attention to specific areas. If you want to minimize a part of the body, opt for dark colors in that area and brighter colors or fun prints in other areas. Also, hair colors and tan levels greatly influence if matched with certain colors. There is no precise rule except for your taste, however the contrast for example of a blonde hair color, with a pink color and a golden skin creates an irresistible mix.

5 - Fabrics Are Not All Equal, Choose the One That Suits You Best

Fabrics are a very important aspect because they affect comfort, but also the chromatic appearance. Some fabrics better than others greatly enhance the color or texture of the paired bikini. For example, Looca Swim velvet bikinis have an extraordinary shine and the colors are emphasized by this extremely soft, elegant but also versatile fabric. Looca Swim offers a collection of Velvet Bikinis in various models and colors. If you instead like to stand out, polyester or lurex-based fabrics in addition to excellent impermeability give the colors and patterns paired with an amazing brilliant effect under the sun.

Now you're ready to choose your perfect bikini or swimsuit!
