Best swimsuit for vacationing in Big Sur

When sneaking away for an outdoor adventure, you never know exactly what the day will bring. One thing's for sure, you'll need more than just a basic swimsuit. Look for swimwear that doubles as out-of-water clothing. Swim leggings, for example, provide instant coverage and comfort for water sport enthusiasts. Swim shorts with a tummy control lining that smooths and flatters provide the coverage you can move in. The goal is to be able to stride through the water without worrying about your bottoms riding up. A swim tee also gives you plenty of reasons to wear it - around the water or not. Lightweight and very comfortable, swim tees are designed to be worn over your swimsuit top. However, you can wear them anywhere for extra coverage and sun protection - patio parties, golf courses, shopping, backyard barbecues, afternoon walks, golf courses, sightseeing... The list is practically endless. With built-in UPF 50 protection from the sun's harmful rays, your fun in the sun stays that way.

So which swimsuit is best for you?

The best swimsuit is the one that allows you to feel your most confident. Whether you’re a fan of baring skin or prefer to be more modest, the trick to finding the perfect swimsuit is to find pieces that will help you hide the parts you’re not too fond of while accentuating the parts you love. If you’re not too sure about which pieces help you accomplish just that, let’s get into the different swimsuit pieces to help you pick the perfect fit and style. 

  • One-piece swimsuits are great to cover up your midsection. Some one-piece swimsuits are designed with tummy control such as our V-neck Wrap One Piece Swimsuit. Just because it’s a one-piece doesn’t mean it has to be boring. One-piece swimsuits get reinvented with each season. From longer cuts reaching mid-thigh for a romper illusion, to skirt bottoms, and even long sleeves to cover up your arms or no sleeves at all for a strapless ensemble, this style of swimsuit gives you more options than any other because of its variety of cuts, patterns, and designs. The one-piece can even give you the option to show more skin with the monokini. A modification from the one-piece, the monokini has grown in popularity for the cut-out design. Whether it’s a lower cut in the back, front, or on the sides, the monokini was born from the one-piece giving you the choice to bare more skin in places you would like to show off. 
  • Tankinis are similar to bikini tops. If you like bikinis but would rather have more coverage, a tankini is for you. Similar to a tank top, the tankini feels more like a shirt than a bikini (hence the name) and comes in different cuts to make you feel your best.
  • Bikinis are for those looking for a little less coverage. A bikini is meant to feel like a bra top so you can bare more skin. This type of swimsuit would usually come with matching bottoms but as of lately, the trend has been to mix and match. 
  • Skirtinis are great to mix and match with a bikini or tankini top. The skirtini provides more coverage than other swimsuit bottoms. If you’re going for a more modest look or would like to cover up some imperfections, the skirtini is a fashionable way to do it as well as other bottoms such as boy shorts and board shorts.
  • Bikini bottoms are designed to be more cheeky and come in different cuts to help you feel your best. The high-waist cut is meant to hide your midsection or wide hips, while the string-tie, similar to a draw-string, allows you to tie it at your comfort level. There are also hip-hugging bikini bottoms if you prefer a low-cut bottom with no strings.

Now that you’re knowledgeable about the different cuts and styles of endless swimsuit possibilities, the only question now is, which will you choose for your next tropical vacation?
