Bia Tube Bikini

Bandeau Bikini
Ripple Bikini
Halter Top Bikini
T Back Bikini
Monokini

 

Bia Tube Bikini

 

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

This is actually a unique style to 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.   

 

Triangle Bikini

 

Model Rocky Barnes wearing the Midnight Wave Triangle Bikini.

This is the true classic women’s swimsuit. It ties at the back and comes up to tie at the neck forming that triangle shape. This is the bikini the women turn to because it has minimal coverage and can truly add the sexy aspect that most women search for when sitting by the pool or on the beach.

 

  

Off the Shoulder Bikini

The off the shoulder bikini is a trendy take on swimwear that is a must have this year. The Bardot-esque shoulder exposure is both flirty and feminine. They make for unique swimwear tops as well as a casual crop top look perfect for festivals or pool parties.  The Shoulder top is a guaranteed head turner and will give you a fashion forward edge for a day in the sun.

 

 

Bandeau Bikini

Did someone say strapless? That is what a bandeau bikini is. It’s a top that forms around your bust like a band. Although these tops sometimes have the option to be worn with very thin straps, they are also removable. Most women turn to this bikini to rid of the yucky tan lines and its unique sense of style.

 

Ripple Bikini

This isn’t necessarily its own unique style of bikini, but it’s a detail that is popularly added to bikinis often. The ripple effect adds wavy edges to the tops and bottoms of a bikini. It’s an elegant feature that adds chic to your swimwear.

 

 

Halter Top Bikini

 

 Betsey Black Halter Bikini featured here.

A halter top is like a tank top where it has no sleeves and sits high on the neck and chest area but ties behind the neck. The halter top bikini is where it mocks the high neck and ties around the neck and back. It’s different, but different also means fashionable!

 

T Back Bikini

 

 

  Featured here: Black Ella Triangle Bikini.

Yet another exclusive bikini style, the t back bikini is one that includes a modish and trendy strap design in the back. At ViX, we like to use a gorgeous knot and beading detailed finish on our t back bikinis.

 

Monokini

 

Featured here: Divino Maite One Piece.

While this can be considered a one piece swimsuit, it is worth mentioning here. Monokinis have far less coverage than your traditional one piece. Some have cut out sides with hardly any coverage, making them just like a bikini. It is a style that is on the rise and becoming more and more popular, even on professional models. Monokinis are great for showing off your figure and are just simply stylish!
