n my last blog post, I shared the best two piece tops out there for small busts to full busts. From bra styles with underwire support, to push up triangle tops and tankinis – there are a lot of options outside of the standard one piece swimsuit. Now it’s time to focus on the bottoms! Trust me, there are more options for you, darling, than the basic bikini bottom (NOT that there’s anything wrong with that!) Take a gander at a few of the most flattering swimwear bottom options below.

Classic brief: The most common two piece swimsuit bottom option is the classic brief. The coverage options vary from low rise to high rise, with the most common among Linda’s customers being mid rise. 

Fold over brief: A favorite in the Linda’s shop in NYC, this style allows you to adjust the band around the hips and midsection for the perfect amount of custom coverage. 

Skirted brief bottom: One of our newest favorites at Linda’s, the skirted brief is fabulous! This is NOT your Grandma’s skirted bikini bottom. The multitude of options include short little flounces, adjustable lengths and sleek & chic styles. This style is great for those who want coverage on the bottom and still want to wear a bikini or tankini top. Also awesome for those who go to resorts and want the convenience of a built-in-coverup for going back and forth to the poolside bar or boardwalk.

Boyshort bottoms: These sporty little numbers are great for those who want a little more coverage on the hips, but don’t want to wear a full skirt. They’re especially great for those who are very active in the water or on the beach. Because of the fuller back, they tend to stay in place. 

Side tie bottoms: Side ties are great for adjusting the bottom to fit your unique curves. They are also great for showing off a little more skin without having to wear a Brazillian or thong back bottom. If you’ve got it, flaunt it! 

Side detailed bottom: From golden rings to braided strands, adding a little detail to the hip area is a fashionable way to stand out at the beach. Why not add in a little sass to your bathing suit? Another favorite side detail is the shirred side band. This flattering look offers a wider band (less digging in!) and more security.
