Did someone say strapless? That's where a bandeau bikini comes in and saves the day. This sexy style of bathing suit top forms around your bust like a band, so most women turn to this classic bikini to help get rid of unwanted tan lines. Although these swim tops sometimes have the option to be worn with very thin straps, they are also removable. What makes the bandeau bikini so amazing is its versatility and ability to match any outfit or swimsuit bottoms. Wearing swimsuit tops with no straps also provides optimal comfort so you don’t need to fiddle around with tying strings all day. Need we say more?

Ripple Bikini

One Piece Swimsuit

One pieces are great for showing off your figure, whether you have a pear shape, hourglass shape, or straight shape!

Bikini Bottoms

With most of our bikinis, you can choose your favorite style of swimsuit bottoms from cheeky bikini, Brazilian, or full bottoms. We typically offer two different types of bikini bottoms for each of our styles so that you can choose your favorite or mix and match, ViX puts emphasis on choosing high-quality fabrics that are both more unique and luxurious. A trendy bikini bottom type is the high-waisted bikini bottom, which is flattering to various body shapes like an apple-shaped body type or someone with an hourglass body type. However, cheeky bikini bottoms are perfect for those with curvier hips and women who are looking for a bolder look that emphasizes most silhouettes.  Tan, swim and lounge in style in any of these ViX bikini styles.

Our Favorite ViX Bikini for all body Types: Bia Tube Bikini

Victoria's Secret Angel and model Iza Goulart wearing the Indigo Betsey Bia Tube Bikini.

This is actually an unique style for us here at ViX. When most people hear tube associated with clothing, they think of a tube top, but this is not that nor does it have anything to do with that. Where the name Bia Tube Bikini comes into play is due to the adjustable sliding tube details that give this bikini a fresh look and ultimately that gives you the option to adjust the sliding tubes and place them wherever you’d like. This bikini is truly figure-flattering because of that customization factor. When shopping for swimwear, it is important to find the perfect fit for your body type. With our wide arrangement of swimwear types, it ensures that you can find the best suit to compliment your body shape and make them feel confident in the sun.
