To achieve this style simply cross over two straps before tying them at the back—voila. A simple twist that offers different levels of support and comfort.

So, which bikini should you go for? With many options out there, why not dip into one of Kendall's top picks – Sommer Swim! Let's go for the Arabesque collection, specifically, this gem called Rococo. It's a paisley paradise with a dash of exotic flair and a burst of vibrant colors that'll totally shout out your impeccable style.

... and by the way, if you believe that this way to tie a bikini top is only available if you have a supermodel body, the wonderful Allison Kimmey has the answer to your doubts...

Exploring Halter Neck Style

The halter neck style has long been favored by swimwear enthusiasts around the globe. It's classic and chic, but more importantly, it provides an excellent level of support.

To get this look with your tie-triangle bikini top, start by taking each end of the string attached to the bottom corners and tying them together at the back. Then take both ends from around your neck and do another knot behind. This creates that iconic halter neck silhouette and allows for personal style expression.

Off The Shoulder

Looking to jazz up your bikini game? Try going off the shoulder! Tying your triangle bikini top with both straps on one side adds a delightful twist to your beach style. The best part? It's surprisingly easy to achieve.

Achieving flawless tan lines can often feel like an uphill battle when wearing traditional bikinis. The beauty of turning your triangle top into a bandeau lies not just in its stylish appeal but also in its practicality toward sunbathing goals. One tip: you get a better fit if you turn your triangle top upside down.

Tips for Choosing the Right Triangle Bikini Top

Your bust size plays a crucial role in choosing the right bikini top. For women with larger busts, string bikinis might not provide enough support. Conversely, those with a smaller bust may benefit from tie triangle bikinis; they can create the illusion of curves and be tied in various ways to accommodate different body shapes.

Apart from design elements like strings and ties, consider fabric types too while shopping for a triangle bikini top. Not all materials are created equal. Some fabrics may irritate sensitive skin while others won't hold up under intense sun exposure or frequent dips in chlorinated pools.

Finally, let's chat about color. Your skin tone, hair color, and personal style should all influence your bikini top shade choice. It might be easy to stick with timeless black or white for versatility but don't hold back from bold colors that can emphasize your best features and show off your personality.


We've explored different styles - from classic halter necks to trendy crisscross designs. Each style provides unique levels of support and coverage that you can customize.

Remember how crucial factors like bust size, fabric type, and color are when choosing your perfect bikini top. It's not just about looks; comfort is key too!

In essence: get creative with tying methods, pay attention to fit details, but most importantly – have fun expressing yourself! Your beach style is a reflection of you after all!
