Bikini Swimwear - Not Just For Super Models

By Elena Ognivtseva

Bikini Swimwear is available in a number of styles and sizes, meaning the bikini it is not reserved for the super thin female runway super models it was once associated with. As a matter of fact, you will find bikini swimwear for men, women, plus sizes, kids and even maternity.

Are you thinking about buying bikini swimwear this season? There are plenty of options out there.

Decide on how much coverage you feel comfortable with. Coverage - or lack of it - is what makes bikini swimwear popular. If you are a woman thinking of trying a bikini, but just feel too self-conscious when you try one on, try a tankini or skirtini this season and a bikini later on.

Your Confidence Is Showing - Can You Pull It Off With a Bikini?
To wear a bikini, you have to feel comfortable with your body and have good self esteem. Does that sound like you? If so, jump in with both feet. But what if you've recently lost a lot of weight and your goal was to wear a bikini next summer? Now you've met your goal and next summer is right around the corner, but you just don't think you're ready. Ah, give it a try! It's not easy to show off the skin you're accustomed to hiding, but if it was your goal to wear one, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. Buy something with a little more coverage to help make the transition. Maybe a top that resembles a sports bra and bottoms that are more like short-shorts than skimpy undies will make you feel more comfortable by the pool or on the beach.

A few years ago you would have never seen a pregnant woman in a bikini. She might wear one of those one piece suits with a skirt, but never two pieces! Times have changed and more and more expectant mothers are showing off their poochy bellies in bikinis. As long as they're comfortable, that's all that matters.

Yes, men wear them too. While many men prefer swim trunks, there are a few who will wear a bikini. Instead of two pieces, the male bikini is only one piece, the bottoms. They are generally made of stretchy fabric that hugs snugly to the behind and the cut is more like the one associated with women's suits.

Speaking of behinds, you can get as much or as little coverage as you want. There's full coverage, meaning that your entire behind is covered (assuming you've bought the right size). Three-quarter coverage is a little more revealing, allowing a small area of each booty cheek to show.

Then there's the thong. Once upon a time, grabbing your thongs to head to the beach meant you were picking up your flip-flops - shoes. Not any more. In case you've been living in a cave for the last 15 years or so, a thong offers front coverage only. The back is a small piece of fabric usually not even seen because it follows the crevice of your behind to attach to the narrow waistband. In other words, all of the behind shows with this type of swimwear - and it's not only women who are daring enough to wear them.

As you search for bikini swimwear, just remember that you need to be honest with yourself - not only about how it looks when you try it on in the dressing room, but about your level of confidence. Can you wear bikini swimwear without being too self conscious? Will you still be able to have fun or will you be too worried about how much flesh is showing?
