One of the most versatile styles of swimwear, bandeau bikini sets come in a range of different patterns, colours and styles. Because of this, they are suitable for most body shapes and bust sizes. They are supportive while ensuring minimal tan lines, so they are a great option for beach holidays and days lazing around a pool, or even just soaking up the rays in your own back garden.
What is bandeau swimwear?
Like the name suggests, a bandeau top has a rectangular shape which fits around the bust like a band of fabric. These can vary in shape slightly, depending on whether they are padded or have underwire. Most bandeau bikini tops have detachable straps, so you can feel more secure while walking or swimming and take them off when sunbathing. This is one of the reasons why this style of swimwear is so popular.
What are the different types of bandeau swimwear?
Bandeau refers to the shape of the bra, but there’s more than one swimwear option available in the bandeau style:
- Non-wired bandeau bikini top – This style is most suitable for ladies with a small to medium sized bust as it does not have any wiring to support a heavier chest. They are extremely comfortable and usually come with detachable straps.
- Underwired bandeau bikini top – If you’re a women with a more ample bust, this is the right style of bandeau top for you, because of the extra support from underwiring. They often have a more rounded shape at the top and usually come with a little bit of padding, giving slightly more coverage and a smoother appearance with reduced chance of nipple show-through.
- Bandeau bikini sets – Buying a set makes the process simple, with a top and bottom that match without the hassle of searching around. In a bandeau bikini set, you’ll usually get bikini bottoms in a regular brief shape to match the top.
- Bandeau swimsuit - A bandeau swimsuit has the same bra style as a bandeau bikini, fitting straight across the chest with detachable straps for your comfort. The coverage on the body makes this a versatile yet flattering choice.
Whether you want a black bandeau bikini to look chic by the pool or a white bandeau bikini top to really make your tan pop, there are so many bandeau designs to choose from.
