Easter Baskets and a Bikini

easter_eggs_8Easter Baskets and a Bikini. Is that such a bad idea? We don’t think so at all. Traditions derived from Easter bring us the Easter Bunny, beautiful arrays of flowers, tie-dyed hard-boiled eggs, pastels, an egg hunt and, at some point in the day, a basket full of chocolate bunnies and jelly beans. For the person spending Easter on the beach or at a pool, why not surprise them with an E22_r16_34_dbl_104b.dbl-203aster basket loaded with bikinis. In keeping with the tradition of bright colors and fun prints, we made a few selections for your loved one’s basket this year.

One of our most popular brands is PilyQ, from the beautiful city of Barcelona. The Reversible Strappy Troy top and Basic bottom we have selected comes in this eye-catching Dreamy tsplt16_ger_ts53c16_ger-copyBlue color scheme. We can’t think of a better color to show off that tan during Easter brunch.

L*Space designed a color scheme that works perfectly while participating in that beach side Easter egg hunt. This Platinum top and Hollywood bottom in the Geranium color scheme will have everyone looking. It just may be the brightest thing on the beach that day.

Who hasn’t tried making a blue and purple Easter egg during the annual egg dying event. The Iceberg Tri Top and Classic Bottom in Blue/Purple created by Dolcessa easily attains this goal. Beautiful and unique in its’ own right, this suit will be sure to attract attention during any event you attend that day. We warn you…do not wear this if you are trying to avoid onlookers.

Our next selection strays away from swimwear, but stays in the blue color scheme. Lady Lux has entered 2016 with this multi-functional Waterfalls Romper in Blue and White. Equally at ease on the beach, near a pool or attending a party, or feel free to wear it to all three.

Moving on, though not quite a pastel, we want to suggest this offering from Brazilian designer Agua Bendita. We went with the Cabo Top and Bottom in the perfectly named Hypnotic color palette. Your family and friends will be mesmerized by this suit no matter the setting. We feel this print will pair nicely with Jelly Bellies in any basket.

Straps, Strings or Crochet Detailing. How Do You Like Your Bikini Tops?

We all <3 bikinis! From bandeaus to halters to triangle tops, is there really a bikini top design that you’d rather not have in your wardrobe? Of course there are! Everyone has preferences, but no style or design is favored over others when it comes to women picking out from the available lot. Yet, there’s something that women do have very clear preferences about. The kind of support they want from their bikini top which in turn is determined by the bikini top design: with straps, strings or crochet detailing.

Of course, support and shape must remain a primary criterion when choosing a bikini top. If your bikini top leads to wobbly, awkward or uncomfy moments for you at the beach then you must make functionality a priority in your selection of bikini tops.

 

Each kind of bikini – whether it’s a strap, string or with drawstrings – offers a different kind of support and shape. It’s also better to know how your beach day is planned out so that you can dress up accordingly. It goes without mentioning that, if your day will chock-a-bloc with sporty stuff like a game of beach volley ball or water sports then we recommend not a teeny weeny sensuous number but a functional and protective rash guard swimwear. But if your day will be spent getting that dusty tan then we recommend a luxurious piece of tiny fabric with the thinnest strings and draw strings. Once this is clear, it’s high time to come to the second most important parameter – your comfort!

 

Your choice of the support of your bikini wear should be contingent upon your comfort, more often than not.

 

So here are our top picks among bikini uppers that you can choose and mix match with your existing bottoms or get the full bikini.

 

1) Regular Triangle and Halter Tops – These bikini tops come with strings that are either tied to the neck or on the back. They are great for comfort as the strings can be adjusted to give shape, firm up or push in with a fitting support. These are ideal for tanning as the drawstrings are thin and do not give you unbearable and ugly tan lines.

2) Broad, Braided and Straps with Embellishments – These are excellent for support and are perfect for women who are a bit bustier. With a guaranteed strong support and firm shape, broad strapped bikinis make up for a really good swimwear for an active day at the beach or by the swimming pool. Bikini tops with sturdier straps are also less likely to experience an embarrassing malfunction.

3) Bikini Tops With Mesh and Crochet Detailing – Crochet detailing and bikinis came back with a huge bang in 2014 and it looks like the trend has received only favors from swimwear enthusiasts. So gear up for the 2015 season where you will see a lot of mesh work around the neck or back for a gorgeous ensemble and great support. Yes, the neck work keeps the fit and shape in tact. The support is not that sturdy but not that bad either. It is recommended for women who are confident and carry it off with the panache it demands because turners will turn!
