Ill-fitting bottoms are an easily avoidable bikini faux pas. Try the following tips to avoid bikini bottom blunders: 

  • If you find yourself walking towards the selection of virtually backless bikinis, hightail it in the other direction. Thongs are for the bedroom, not family beaches and community pools. Of course, when in France…
  • Opt for a bikini that covers the important areas and hugs them firmly but not overly tightly. Too small of a bottom will create a mad case of muffin top.
  • If you have large hips, try a bikini bottom with adjustable ties, which will accommodate your shape.
  • If you have a boyish shape, make ruffles or boy shorts your go-to styles. These give the appearance of curves.
  • For the pear-shaped peeps out there, sleek, simple, dark-colored bottoms draw attention away from the area and create better balance.

 The only way to know if the bikini is suitable is to try it on in the store. Take an objective look at yourself and move around a little bit in front of the mirror. If everything stays in place, you're in good shape.
