10 types of swimsuits to fall for this summer
Summer is there, are you going on vacation or do you need inspiration to renew your swimwear collection? You are in the right place! Between the essential one-piece swimsuit, the trikini and the bikini which is reinvented in a thousand and one ways: colourful, asymmetrical with a pattern, there is something for everyone! So you've come to the right place! Find here all our favorite swimsuits, ideas for looks as well as advice for each morphology.
1. The one-piece swimsuit
The one-piece swimsuit has become essential in our summer wardrobe. Whether for swimming or for wearing under denim shorts as a bodysuit, it’s the perfect ally!
Tip: The ideal morphologies for the one-piece swimsuit are those in H and O. Those in H means that the shoulders and the hips are the same width and the waist is not very marked. While the O morphology is characterized by generous shapes and a little belly. The one-piece swimsuit is therefore the perfect ally on the beach or at the pool if you don’t want to reveal too much.

2. The trikini swimsuit
Trikini swimsuits are the models you have to choose if you don’t want to go unnoticed this summer! Very trendy and available in all possible cuts and colors, you will certainly find your happiness. This swimsuit trend appeared in the 1970s. It is the perfect combination between the bikini and the one-piece swimsuit. Indeed, it forms a triple yoke, due to its original cutout, hence the name.
Tip: This type of swimsuit goes with multiple silhouettes, whether they are thin or on the contrary more luscious, depending on the design. But, it is to the V-shaped morphology, with little developed hips and broad shoulders that the trikini is best because it balances the silhouette. Pair it with pants, shorts or a bodysuit skirt or simply with a sarong on the beach. There is thus an infinite variety of trikini models, ranging from the push-up top, to the bandeau, to a very plunging neckline.

3. The pink bikini
We must not forget to mention the bikini, perfect for a day at the beach or at the pool.
Although it has existed since the Neolithic era, the modern bikini was imagined by the Frenchman Louis Réard in 1946. At the time, it caused a scandal because it revealed too much skin. Then, it interfered in mores and even became the symbol of female activism. Women wanting to enjoy their own body and free themselves from patriarchy.
It was also popularized in film culture by stars like Brigitte Bardot in the 1950s or Ursula Andress in the James Bond series. Today, bikinis are an integral part of our culture and have become totally essential swimwear!
Tip: The one in our selection was chosen pink, the perfect color to add a nice little touch to your outfit. The bikini is a perfect model for slender silhouettes with marked waists such as X-shaped morphologies for example. It can be tied in a thousand and one ways depending on the desired effect such as tying around the neck, crossed in front or even the “uspide-down bikini” trend. It consists of reversing the direction of the bikini and wearing it tied on the sides. This type of knotting is accessible to small breasts, on the other hand, but less so to more developed ones.
@Sabjova opted for a very trendy fushia pink bikini for the summer because it will match perfectly with your tan! It will be ideal for sunbathing at the beach or for doing a few lengths in the pool.

The high-waisted two-piece swimsuit was invented very early, even before the bikini, in 1932. It was designer Jacques Heim who designed it and it became popular from the 1940s. high-waisted shorts hiding the navel.
