It doesn’t have to be tiny
A lot of people think that wearing thong swimsuit bottoms means that they have to essentially wear butt floss. Thong swimsuit bottoms don’t have to be tiny and revealing. Nor do they have to be gaudy, if you prefer a more classic style then go for thicker straps and a solid colour. You’ll enjoy the benefits of a more revealing style without feeling like you’re leaving absolutely nothing to the imagination. A thicker style can be flattering to a range of figures and can be very flattering when paired with a triangle or bandeau top.
Go for a high-cut style
High cut thong swimsuit bottoms are almost universally flattering. If you’re curvy then it will emphasise your curves in all the right places and show off your hourglass figure and if you’re tall and thin then it will make your legs look like they go on for miles. People with concerns around their middle will find that it cinches in their waist, whilst those who feel like they have no curves will find themselves feeling like they have more of a figure.
Consider one-piece styles
If you’re not comfortable with thong swimsuit bottoms, then consider a one piece. This will give you more coverage and will make you feel less exposed whilst allowing you to still rock the classic style that many people love. High cut one piece styles have become extremely popular in recent years, so this is a good way to begin investigating this style.
Don’t forget a back-up option
If it’s your first time trying out a thong swimsuit bottoms then we suggest that you bring an extra pair of bottoms along with you, that way you can easily switch into them if you want to. This is a great way to get comfortable with the style without making yourself feel over-exposed.
Consider where you’re wearing them
Before you go for a day at the beach in this style, we suggest you think carefully about what activities you’re planning to do. Very little fabric means this style isn’t really recommend for high levels of activity. If you are for instance planning on going surfing, then we’d really suggest you go for a style with fuller coverage. You should also think about what the conditions of the water will be like. If you’re going to a beach where the waves are high, you could end up suffering an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction.
Think about your body
There are a lot of different designs to choose from out there. You may for instance opt for an adjustable string design, or something strappy. It all depends on your figure.
