Women swimsuits

Summer is coming! The sun, beaches, swimming pools, sunscreen, straw hats… and women’s swimsuits are eagerly waiting for you. Choosing your swimsuit is not always a picnic. There are so many available that it can be difficult to find the one that suits you best. Don't panic: we will go through the many choices available to you and help you find the ultimate bathing suit, the one that will perfectly suit your body type and leave you feeling satisfied.

Choose the one-piece swimsuit of your dreams

Let's start by examining the one-piece swimsuit. It is the ideal choice when you do not want to show your stomach. It effectively camouflages small rolls or stretch marks that can appear after pregnancy. There are several types of one-piece swimsuits: racerback, open back, asymmetrical bustier, with thong or panty bottoms, with cutouts or without. In terms of style, this resolutely trendy piece caters to all tastes. There are indeed two-tone versions, printed, plain…

Bikinis and two-piece swimsuits for all tastes

The two-piece swimsuit is ideal for tanning from top to bottom and limiting tan lines. It is also a good ally to avoid overheating on the beach. 

A wide variety of swimwear tops

Swimsuit tops come in many shapes: triangle bra, bandeau, halter, with or without underwires, push-up, padded, bustier, with deep cups or with molded cups... Just like bras, choose a swimsuit top according to your body type and the cleavage effect you would like to achieve. Opt for a push-up for a dramatic neckline, triangle top to delicately enhance a small bust or an underwire top to provide maximum support to a large chest. Finally, direct your choice towards a cupless or sports bra shape for a sporty and slender look.

A wide variety of types of bikini bottoms for women

The bikini bottom is just as important as the top. It can also enhance your figure, or help you camouflage small imperfections. A high-waisted bikini bottom, for example, is retro and elegant. It also helps to minimize the hips and flatten the lower abdomen. Next, there are the low-rise bottoms or classic swim briefs. These are the most common types of bikini bottoms. They are flattering to all figures, except for women with very plump buttocks (they tend to fit too tightly at the crease of the buttock and thigh). In this case, it is better to opt for a shorty, a boxer or a thong, which are comfortable and fit well around muscular or round buttocks. The latest trend in swimsuit bottoms for women? The Brazilian bottom. High-cut, it is sexy and will help you perfect your tan while downplaying voluptuous hips. 

Consider a mismatched swimsuit

Why not mix and match your outfit? Having a mismatched swimsuit bottom and top is very trendy. For example, you could combine a black top with a lilac, red, or fuchsia-colored bottom, or a white bottom with a khaki, orange, yellow, pink, blue or even fluorescent top. Let your imagination run wild. Dessus Dessous offers a wide choice of colors for your two-piece swimsuit. However, we recommend against combining different patterns together, as you are likely to end up with a fashion “don’t”. Instead, opt for a pattern, a floral print or stripes on either the top or the bottom, paired with a solid color on the other half: you will look divine!

Succumb to the monokini trend

A monokini, sometimes called a trikini, is a two-piece swimsuit connected by a strip of fabric over the belly. It's the perfect compromise between a bikini and a one-piece swimsuit. Sexy, it allows you to tan properly while still providing good coverage. It is particularly flattering on slender silhouettes and women with a flat stomach. Do you want to join the trend?
