TIP OF THE WEEK: TRY MONOKINIS FOR A SEXY COVERED LOOK
If you love the design of a two-piece bathing suit but crave a little extra coverage, a monokini can be the perfect solution to your swimwear style dilemma. In essence, a monokini is a one-piece swimsuit with side cutouts, so it looks like a bikini from the back. Ranging from super skimpy to modernly modest, an increasing number of swimwear designers are embracing this hybrid design.
When it comes to monokinis, there are a number of variations. Some styles place more emphasis on showing off the tummy or midsection and feature larger cutout sections. On the other hand, some styles are more conservative, featuring subtle side cutouts and generous front coverage. Other styles are arguably even sexier than a traditional bikini, featuring strappy designs, peek-a-boo detailing or cheeky Brazilian back coverage! Available in an array of colors, prints and styles, the possibilities are endless. A major selling point to consider if you're thinking of trying out a monokini is the way it can help enhance your figure; the cutout sections can make a straight and narrow figure appear more curvaceous, creating the illusion of an hourglass shape. Regardless of your style preference, a monokini swimsuit will definitely have you looking perfectly poolside-chic this season.
