July 5 is the official date for National Bikini Day, let’s take a walk down memory lane to find out when exactly this all started.
The origin of the bikini dates back to Roman times when women would wear bikini-like garments to participate in athletic sporting events. Later on July 5, 1946, a French engineer by the name of Louis Réard created the modern bikini named after the Bikini Atoll. Decades later, we have seen the bikini trend spread worldwide especially in Western society becoming one of the top-earning businesses annually.
Now in present time, we here at Eve by Eve’s carry a variety of bikinis ranging from one-pieces to bikini sets. Here are a few of our top picks:
The Trendy Off-the-Shoulder
One of the most popular styles we’ve seen surfacing recently is the “off-the-shoulder” trend. Intentionally worn off the shoulders to bear the clavicles, this is a style that flatters a variety of body types in contrast to other recent fads. Many women feel confident rocking their bare shoulders and we couldn’t agree more!
Our Mignon Bikini Set is our take on a Little Black Bikini with a trendy twist. We took the off-the-shoulder look and incorporated it into a bikini set that will suit all women. Available in black, a color known for its slimming effect, this bikini is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
The Geometric Pattern
The only statement you want to be making this summer is with a bold swimsuit. Featuring a colorful geometric print, the Giselle Bikini Set is sure to be a showstopper. The triangle bikini top features colorful straps braided through the gold hardware rings for an added fashion statement. Strappy bikini bottoms bare a cheeky fit for less visible tan lines all summer long.
The Classic One-Piece
We understand that bikini sets aren’t for everyone, so to look and feel your best try a classic one-piece swimsuit. We took our favorite one-piece style and added a boho twist to it to create our Amanda One-Piece Swimsuit. It features a center crochet detail, keeping the conservative look but revealing just enough skin in all the right places. Throw on your favorite pair of denim shorts for a quick and easy beach outfit. Available in two classic shades of black and white for maximum versatility.
The Nauti Hottie
One of our main concerns when wearing a swimsuit is tummy control. We created our Gemma Bikini Set to not only offer enough coverage at the waist but also add a nautical vibe to the look. The bandeau style bikini top is paired with a flattering and slimming bottom, giving you the best fit. You’ll feel comfy and confident in your own skin and it’s available in three different shades to fit any mood.
The Macramé Perfection
Rounding up the list, we have the always trendy macramé bikini set. Simple and chic, our Sheila Bikini Set comes with a paisley-patterned and macramé-detailed top and bottom. The knotted sides add a boho charm to this poolside look making it the perfect set to pack for your next vacation getaway.
