The world first got a glimpse at the trikini in 1967, where it initially flopped before reappearing with a boom just a few years ago. Since then, the trikini has filled swimwear stores across the world with its fashionable, yet sexy styling. The trikini essentially consists of three (hence ‘tri’) parts – a bikini bottom; fabric section that skims the stomach; and a bikini top. It has never been so in trend, with styles appearing in fashion houses everywhere, available in a number of different colours and fabrics. Dolce and Gabbana have been considered the first for bringing this swimwear staple back onto the high street, with their S/S 2005 collection presenting skimpy trikinis (a smaller version of monokinis) that emphasised their models’ curves. Here we provide you with some of the reasons why a trikini is a must-have purchase for this summer.
Trikinis are bang on trend
This is reflected in the multitude of trikinis currently spotted on the high street. With many swimwear stores harbouring the design, there has never been a better time to be seen sporting one. Check out the Aquazy for some inspiration.
The trikini is wonderfully flattering
It pulls in your curves wherever necessary, whilst emphasising your waist where the lack of material around the sides of the stomach material focuses attention to the body in a slimming fashion. The front piece of material across the stomach means that any slight bulges can be cleverly concealed, meaning you can gain confidence in your look. Consequently, the eye is drawn to the bust, hips and waist, creating a flattering look that will get heads turning down at the beach.
There is a swimwear style available for everyone
Their availability upon the high street means that they are able to suit all buyers and pay packets. If you’re feeling bold, opt for bright patterns and prints to add a little brightness poolside. Alternatively, plain black trikinis look slick and fashionable as ever, and suit everybody.
Why women likes trikinis swimwear?
The trikini can be a perfect practical solution for women who do not feel confortable having a bare stomach or because they have a complex about navels or even for women who prefer to hide post-operation scars or post natal marks after giving birth.
By allowing women to hide a small part of their stomach and revealing the back and waist, thikinis can be an ideal compromise for women.
