Cheeky Bottoms

Have you heard of cheeky bikini bottoms but aren’t quite sure exactly what they are? We’re here to help fill you in on what cheeky bikini bottoms are. With slightly more coverage than a thong bikini bottom, a cheeky bikini bottom allows you to get minimal coverage and accentuate your assets, all with slightly more coverage than more revealing bikini bottom styles. If you are looking for a bikini bottom that is a happy medium between a full coverage bikini bottom and a thong bikini bottom, or cheeky bikini bottom is the style you’ve been looking for.1

Cheeky bottoms are designed to be the perfect partner for days spent lounging in the sun. They offer fewer tan lines than full bottoms to help you achieve that sun-kissed look that will make all of your swimwear even more fabulous. We know that when you hit the beach or the pool, you want to show off the body that you work hard for and these bottoms do just that. Keep in mind that this style will offer less coverage than a full bikini bottom, so if you are looking for more coverage, this isn’t the right option for you. We want to make sure that you always feel comfortable in your bikini and part of that is choosing a bikini bottom style that you will feel comfortable and confident wearing.2

Whether you’re curvy or have a smaller bottom, cheeky bottoms can be a great addition to your swimwear arsenal. For those with more ample curves, it helps avoid the appearance of having a significant amount of swimsuit material and accentuates your body’s great shape and lift. For those with fewer curves, a cheeky bottom helps to give the appearance of a more full bottom. This bikini bottom style is a win-win for adding shape to bottoms of all sizes. This comes back to whether or not you’ll feel truly comfortable and confident when wearing them. To gauge whether or not cheeky bottoms are a great fit for you, we recommend trying on a pair and seeing them on your body, as well as being mindful of the types of activities you plan to partake in when wearing them. While they should stay put while you’re out and about, it’s all about figuring out what you’re comfortable with. If you’re going to be worrying about your bottoms while doing an activity you love, save your cheeky bottoms for days of tanning and opt for a full bottom for activity-filled days. Now that you know the basics on cheeky, Brazilian bikini bottoms are another option we want to walk you through to help you decide which skin-bearing bottom best aligns with your unique style goals.3

Brazilian Bottoms

Did you know that a significant amount of the swimwear sold in the United States has ties back to Brazil? Brazilian -style bikini bottoms fall within this category and are quickly becoming one of the most sought-after bikini bottom styles. Brazilian cut bikini bottoms are known for their sexy style and minimal tan lines. For some, the amount of exposure they offer may be intimidating, but for others, it may be an opportunity to show off your hard work with minimal coverage. Brazilian bikini swimwear is meant to flatter your figure and help to add shape for bottoms of all sizes. A Brazilian bikini will show more skin than a cheeky bikini bottom, so keep that in mind as you consider whether or not this bikini bottom style is right for you. If you’re looking to a show a bit more skin than you would with a cheeky bottom and pay homage to the roots of many beloved swimwear styles, the Brazilian bikini bottom may be the right choice for you.4

One of the activities that best aligns with the Brazilian bikini bottom is tanning because it is going to allow the most skin exposure and help to get your skin that perfect sun-kissed glow. A Brazilian bikini bottom can also be functional for other beach activities, such as stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking, but for more intense activities it may be better to opt for a bikini bottom with a bit more coverage to make sure that you are comfortable and can focus on the task at hand.

Brazilian swimwear can help amp up the sexiness for any body type and keep your bottom looking full and eye-catching. For this bikini bottom style, it all comes down to comfort and key. We want to make sure that no matter what bikini bottom you are in, you feel attractive and comfortable. If you won’t feel comfortable and confident showing quite this much skin, opt for a cheeky bottom or a full bottom that will give you a bit more coverage. If you want to show off your assets, rock a Brazilian one piece for your next day of fun in the sun. If neither of these styles is quite what you are looking for, don’t worry! There are plenty of other fashion-forward and appealing bikini bottom styles to choose from. We’ll introduce you to a few of our favorites to help guide your search for the perfect bikini bottoms.5

Other Popular Bottom Styles For Your Next Beach Adventure

Do you love the look of cheeky and Brazilian bikini bottoms but aren’t sure if they are the perfect match for you? We’ve got you covered! There are many different flattering bikini bottoms variations to choose from and we’re here to help you find the one that is right for you. Below we’ve compiled a few more popular bikini bottom styles to introduce you to.

Full Bottoms

Are you looking for a more conservative bikini bottom that will provide you with enough coverage to feel comfortable for any activity? Unlike Brazilian or cheeky bikini bottoms, a full cut bikini bottom provides full bottom coverage, hence its name. Full coverage bikini bottoms are always a great go-to option that will still look sexy and fashionable while still offering plenty of coverage. Full bottoms are one of the most versatile bikini bottoms available and will always be a great go-to to have at your disposal. If you love higher intensity water activities, such as wakeboarding or surfing, full coverage bottoms or a full coverage one piece swimsuit are more apt to stay in place and will be more reliable even when put under pressure.6

High Waisted Bottoms

If you’re on the hunt for a bottom that will give you a vintage, classy vibe, a high waisted bottom may be the ticket. These bikini bottoms will hit higher up over your hips so that they hit right on your natural waist. There are many different adaptations of this attractive style, including versions that have high-cut legs to create the illusion of longer legs or low-cut legs to offer additional coverage. Keep in mind that high waisted bottoms will affect your tan lines, but they will also be more stable and apt to stay put and they won’t sag down because of their higher waist.7 If you are self-conscious about your stomach, a high-waisted bottom can allow you to show a bit more skin than a one piece while still covering your lower stomach.8

Tie Side Bottoms

Tie side bikini bottoms are among the most popular styles of bikini bottoms because of their medium coverage and ability to be customized to give you a perfect fit.9 Because they have a tie on one or each side, you can adjust the fit of your bottoms whenever you need to so they always have a perfect fit and will stay comfortable all day long. If you’re planning on doing more intense activity, such as tubing or wakeboarding, you may want to opt for a different bikini bottom as the force of the water can cause the ties to come loose. Tie side bottoms look great on all body types and can be a great addition to your swimsuit arsenal.10
