How Do I Choose the Right Swimsuit Bottom?
Finding the right swim bottoms can take some trial and error, but once you get it right you really feel like you've accomplished something. After understanding the various fits and styles, it's easy to narrow down the style that will work best for you. Here is a quick guide to help you find the perfect bottom for you.
Are you planning on being active?
If you're headed to the beach to play some volleyball or go surfing you will probably want to look for something with a thicker waistband and more modest coverage. The thicker waist bands are less likely to droop or slide off. Some find it more comfortable to have more coverage during activities so you don't end up with the dreaded wedgie.
Need some adjustability in your life?
If you prefer to adjust the fit of your bottoms based on the activities you are doing, look for a tie-side bottom that will allow you to customize your fit. Tighten up for playing in the waves and loosen up for laying out.
Looking for minimal tan lines?
Choose skimpy or brazilian coverage bottoms. These offer minimal coverage but will do wonders for your tan lines. Ideal for the ladies who spend the entire winter doing squats.
Need a more conservative look?
Full coverage bottoms like boy shorts, swim pants or even boardshorts are great options for those looking to cover up a little more. Whether you are headed to the water park with your family or hitting the water for some SUP, a boy shorts or boardshorts are small enough to still get some sun on your legs but will offer enough coverage so you feel comfortable.
