Butterfly bikinis are a nice alternative to the classic triangle top. Its wider cups usually slide along the outer string so you can adjust the amount of coverage you need. The top ties around both the neck and the back, and it usually gathered in the center giving it a butterfly appearance. Some tops are versatile enough to give you the option of tying both strings around the back for a strapless look.
While each designer’s butterfly bikinis will vary slightly, the overall design is a flattering one for anyone thanks to the adjustable nature of the cups. If you have a large chest, the cups can be expanded to give you plenty of coverage without sacrificing any style. For those with smaller chests, the cups can be shortened in height. This will cause a gathering effect which can actually add to the appearance of your chest size.
Butterfly bikinis look amazing with any bottom style which makes this a top that is easy to mix and match. For a more conservative look, pair up a butterfly top with a full coverage bottom. If you love your bikini to look as feminine as possible, a butterfly top in a lighter shade matched up with a bikini skirt has a lot of style. For something a little sportier, a bold colored butterfly top and boy shorts give off that “I came to play” feel. If you like to suit your bikini to your mood, pick them all up and go with whichever feels the best that day.
Accent pieces are common in the gathered center of butterfly bikinis, and they are a great way to find a bikini that speaks to you personally. Throw a bit of nautical flair in there with an anchor, or go decadent with a crystal-studded o-ring. Whatever look you are going for, butterfly bikinis can help you achieve the effect.
