Frankie’s Bikinis- Resewing History One Stitch At A Time

Developing a favorite swimwear line is very similar to discovering your new favorite band: you learn their history, stalk them on nearly every social media outlet available, and count the days until they release their new creation.

The phenomenon that is Frankie’s Bikinis happened just like that.

Frankie's Bikinis- Malibu Top & Bottom
Frankie’s Bikinis- Malibu Top & Bottom

 

Frankie’s hit the scene a little over two years ago and has not stopped growing since.

Frankie’s designer, 19-year-old designer Francesca Aiello, grew up on the sunny beaches of Malibu, spending most of her time in a bikini.  Aiello launched her line when she was 17.

Making swimwear history, Aiello became the youngest designer to debut her 2015 line at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami this past July.

Due to her not only continuing but also groundbreaking success, the young designer has been featured in Huffington Post, Yahoo, ABC News, San Francisco Chronicle, TeenVogue, The Miami Herald, and many more.  The ambitious entrepreneur wants to expand her line to include clothing that can be worn elsewhere than the beach. 

 

Her collection is an incredible balance of active and flirty to satisfy the sandy surfer and the boho beach bum.

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!
