Which Style Is Right For You?
So many choices, so many options. Which bikini bottom is right for you? Standard bottom or side tie? Conservative full back coverage or maximum sun tan thong? Whether it's a family weekend at the cabin by the lake or an out-of-control Spring break in Fort Lauderdale, you need options. Safe to say, one bikini will not fit every occasion. Let's explore the choices you have in bikini bottoms.
STANDARD BOTTOM VS. SIDE TIE BOTTOMFirst decision to make is standard bottom or side tie? A standard bikini bottom is more traditional than a side tie bikini bottom.
A standard bikini bottom is a good choice for the more tradition or the more paranoid. After all, we have all heard tales of a sister of a friend of a second cousin that was at the beach when a dog or precocious toddler pulled on the side tie bow of her bikini bottom unceremoniously exposing her tan lines to all. Hey, your mom did it to your shoe laces when you were five and it worked just fine...double knot the side bows...potential problem averted, end of story.
STANDARD BACK VS. SCRUNCH BACKYour second decision is standard back or scrunch back bottom? A standard bikini bottom is more traditional than a scrunch back bikini bottom.
REAR EXPOSUREThere are six (6) different bikini bottom back configurations in order of skimpiest to most conservative...
- String Back
- Brazil or Rio Back
- American Back
You have options when it comes to string bikinis...with or without side ties.
Thong back bikini bottoms are available in standard and side tie.
T-back bikini bottoms can come in string back style or the style where strips of fabric are sewn together to form a "T".
BRAZIL or RIO BACK
Whether you call it a Brazil back or Rio back bikini bottom, you can find this bottom in both standard back and scrunch back.
The Brazil back bikini bottom can be found with or without side ties.
A nice compromise between the provocative Brazil back bikini bottom and the conservative full back bottom is the American back bikini bottom...still sexy, but not so much so that your Aunt Trudy spreads scandalous rumors about you.
Lots of choices when it comes to the most conservative of the bikini bottoms...the full back bikini bottom. Standard or side tie, regular back or scrunch back, the full back bikini bottom is definitely safe for a family trip to the beach...maximum coverage for minimum criticism.
Tips for Washing Your New Bikini
When washing your bikini, please give it the attention it deserves. Like your lingerie, your bikini should be hand washed in the sink using a mild soap. Please forget about just throwing it into the washer with your jeans. And no dryers either...just hang your bikini up to air dry or place it on a dry towel. Take care of your FantasiaWear bikini and it will give many wonderful sunny memories.
