Tube Top Bikinis
Tube top bikinis have a strapless top that really defines the whole swimsuit. They are not only great for limiting unattractive tan lines but they are perfect for showing off your shoulders and neckline. Most tube tops consist of a simple band of fabric that wraps around your chest and ties in the back. While the design may seem basic, it is highly attractive in its simplicity. Other tube tops will add some type of focal point to the center in the form of a decorative piece or knotted fabric. The difference between the two is one of taste with one being slightly dressier looking and the other more casual. Both are excellent styles depending on when and where you plan on wearing them.
The best way to ensure a proper fit with tube top bikinis is to make sure the top ties in the back. Wide back ties allow you to tie the top to suit your own body. A bikini top with fixed fasteners will only be one width around and more than likely stretch out easily. Tube tops are designed to fit snugly so they stay in place. It is a common misconception that all tube tops slide down. Poorly fitting tube tops slide down, so be sure to follow designer sizing guidelines, if they provide any. A lot of companies recommend buying tube tops one size smaller than you usually wear. If you are not comfortable doing that, just make sure to get a top that ties and you will be able to adjust the fit accordingly.
Tube top bikinis used to be a thing of the past, but the swimwear fashion circled back around and is now a favorite among women who are ready to take a chance on a strapless bikini top.
