The cropped bikini is here to stay! The trend inspired by the swimwear of aquatic sportswomen offers much more comfort and support not only for those who want a more discreet and secure result in the bikini top, but also for those looking for a more fashionable and elegant option.
As it is a little bigger than the usual bikinis, the crop top also offers the right structure for the practice of activities in the water or on the edge of the sea: playing a game of volleyball, racquetball or practicing stand-up without worrying about movements. or checking that everything is in place at all times is much more convenient.
And of course, in addition to comfort, we must also value its beauty. The cropped is very elegant and versatile, able to combine with different types of panties, in the most varied colors and prints. Just know what result you want to achieve (enhance or disguise the bust, accentuate curves, ensure a vintage look, among other tricks) and choose the piece that most identifies you.
Below you can see some creative inspirations with a cropped bikini and its most varied models, with comments from the Fashion and Style Consultant, Lais Urizi:
strap cropped bikini
The cropped bikini with straps enhances the shoulders, maintaining the discretion and structure characteristic of this wider version than the usual bikinis. “The strap cropped is a great option for those with broad shoulders, as it can visually expand that part of the body even more”, adds the consultant.
Cropped tank top or short sleeve bikini
Regarding this more closed model, Lais suggests for those who like to practice outdoor sports, such as running or beach volleyball, for example. They will ensure more support to the breasts, and also more security. Printed fabrics and striking colors can enhance skin tone, while plain and neutral fabrics ensure a more minimalist look.
Single front cropped bikini
For girls who want to leave everything in place without worries, the secret is to bet on the cropped halter top. The professional’s tip for this model is accurate: “in addition to being an option for those with a small torso, it is the single front that will also guarantee a better feeling of support for those with a larger bust”.
Cropped ruffled off-the-shoulder bikini
“The ruffled crop top will add volume to the torso. The shoulder to shoulder even more. Anyone who has a smaller shoulder and doesn’t want it in evidence can abuse this option. Large prints (drawings or florals) and high contrast also have an enlarging effect”, suggests Lais. For this type of model, the ideal is to combine it with a more discreet panties, so that the center of attention is only the volume of the top.
Long sleeve cropped bikini
The favorite model of water sportsmen got a new outfit to make the beach look even more fashionable. Fun prints and colors were adopted, in addition to the comfort of its elasticity. It is commonly combined with hot pants, which can be either the same print or a different color, to give it a more casual touch.
Crochet cropped bikini
In addition to being beautiful, the crochet cropped offers another advantage: its versatility! “It can be easily worn with a long skirt, high-waisted pants, outside the beach or pool. It doesn’t give the same feeling as a normal bikini (which leaves the body more exposed) and gives the freedom to be used in countless ways during the summer”, concludes the consultant.
