Bikini Fit Workshop: The Girl from Bahia
Summer is coming and here at ViX, we want to help you find the perfect fitting designer bikini. We’ve done our homework to give you the best bikini fit advice to help you look and feel amazing. Plus, we’ve put our own spin on conventional body types and associated them with famous places in Brasil. Follow along each week for the most comprehensive Bikini Fit Guide we’ve put together to date (and learn fun Brasilian facts along the way)!
“The Girl from Bahia”
Busty. Like Bahia’s famed Coconut Coast, the Bahia Girl has ample “coconuts” of her own. Her busty chest would benefit from a modified triangle (BIA) or halter bikini that gives her support.
Support and coverage without the dowdiness. Look for things like double piping under the bust or thicker triangle/halter straps.
BIA – The BIA bikini top in size XL can fit a D to DD cup size and has double piping under the bust for added support. The sliding tubes allow for customizable coverage, so you can show off as much (or as little) as you want!
Long Triangle Top Bikini – In addition to double piping in the XL size, the Long Tri offers wider halter straps that make for a more comfortable and supported fit.
Bandeau with Molded Cups – Though traditionally for smaller chests, bandeaus with molded cups and an optional neck strap work the best for busty women. Be sure to look for molded cups as they provide more support than removable padding.
Fan Fit Feedback:
We met Andrea at the Everything But Water Trunk Show and Fit Workshop—she wanted a bikini top for large breasts that fit her without the overwhelming amount of fabric. With a triple D bust size, she was ecstatic about finding the BIA. She tells us that the BIA “is really supportive and super sexy at the same time!”
