Questioning is it OK to mix and match bikinis? We have your swimwear dilemmas sorted.

From mix and match bikini styles to finding the right fit for you.

This is the PLT guide on how to style mix and match bikinis for summer.


First up, we looked at some of your most searched questions, and of course we have the answers!

What bikini bottoms make your bum look good?

Brazilian cut bikini bottoms are the go-to if wanting to show off your curves.

What is a Brazilian bikini?

It’s esentially the cut of the bikini shape that makes it a Brazilian bikini. This tends to be a high leg cut and similar on the bum, making for an ideal swimwear silhouette.

A must-have if wanting to accentuate those curves and elongate your legs.

What is the difference between cheeky and Brazilian bikini?

The Brazilian cut is more about the height of the leg line whereas a cheeky bikini (or micro as we call them here at PLT) can be any style of rise. It’s more so the back and showing some cheek (obvs).

What is the difference between Brazilian and thong bikini?

A Brazilian is showing justtt enough whereas a thong bikini is very much a thong, just like underwear.

Thong bikinis are hugeeee right now and we’re so here for them.

When it comes to picking your bikini bottoms you should go for whatever you feel most comfortable in.

Whatever your swim vibe, you do you and wear what makes you feel your most confident self!



Next up, bikini tops.

We’ve ALL had it, a bikini set that fits perfectly on the bottoms but not quite the top.

That’s the joy in mix and match bikinis, pick your perfect pair knowing you’ll be feeling your best self come beach day.

We’ve shared all about picking the best swimwear to suit your shape here.

The Best Swimwear To Suit Your Shape


Although we’ve covered all in the above post, one of the top searches we see is, what type of bikini top is best for large breasts?

Similar to when shopping for lingerie, support is key for fuller busts.

Try to shop for swimwear that features more supportive fastenings such as clips rather than tie back tops.

Underwiring is also an easy go-to when shopping for fuller bust swim.

What bikinis are slimming?

Whilst this will depend on your frame, tie sides and fabrics can be key here.

Tie side bikinis are also perfect when it comes to enhancing curves and waffle fabrics being unreal for tummy control.

Simply search for crinkle, waffle or seersucker fabric then scroll your options. This style of swim is also great if your sizing switches regularly.

White Crinkle Low Scoop Back Swimsuit


Last but not least here, bold or statement prints are a true gamechanger when it comes to feeling a little self conscious.

If you’re all about the trends then you’ll be glad to know animal print swimwear as well as fruit prints are huge right now.
