Is your body type considered ‘athletic’? The best bikinis for you are those that provide curves. Think feminine cuts and detailing, as well as padding, tapered-back bottoms, and hip embellishments. Eschew halter spaghetti-strap and bandeau bikini options and you’ll be as golden as the sun. Check out a few bikinis for athletic shapes from Canyon Beachwear and enjoy strutting your stuff along the coastline this summer:
Featuring a dazzling print inspired by the Greek isle of Santorini, this super-feminine option glitters in the sun and includes removable padding for boosting the bust. The gold-accented string ties draw attention to the hips and make them look fuller. Sweet.
The cool blue of the Aegean Sea was the inspiration for this beautiful bikini bottom from Vitamin A. Its braided hip details are both eye-catching and highly-functional, as they create a “forgiving, no-bulge silhouette.” The back makes this option especially ideal for athletic builds, as it’s shirred for a curve-sculpting, streamlined fit. The soft look and feel of this bikini bottom is ultra-feminine, and it’s even made of recycled fibers. Nice.
A thick-strapped halter top featuring a fun, flirty design, the Robin Piccone Navy Satachi Floral Keyhole Halter includes soft cups, a pleated band, and a keyhole embellishment. It ties at the back and neck to create a feminine look sure to flatter athletic builds. Fantastic.
Worn by supermodel Anastacia Ashley in the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, the Indie Soul Lola Triangle With Mariposa Tie Side Bottom is hand-dyed and extra girly. The bottom features a cinched back and a “butterfly” design, while the adjustable triangle top is simply stunning. And since each suit is hand-dyed, you can be sure yours is unlike anyone else’s. Awesome.
