It’s very easy to feel lost in the bikini world: different types, lots of colors and billions of little differences that can make us feel more or less confident.
We should start by highlighting the difference between bikinis and lingeries: they can appear like the same thing, a bra and a slip, but they are not; we can’t go to the beach with an intimate complete or sleeping with a bikini lol. So what’s the difference? First of all the situation in which they can be
used: lingeries are items of cloths that we use beneath outer clothes and one of their main function is to provide concealment or support to our body; so we use lingeries everyday under our ordinary cloths and at night if we don’t want to wear just night clothes.
Bikini is a two piece swimsuit with a bra top for the chest and panties, the basic design is made of two triangles to cover woman’s breast and two triangles on the bottom to cover our bum; so bikinis are mainly used when we’re at the sea or we’re at the swimming pool. We could say that it’s made to be used in more social contexts while lingeries are more intimate. We can also say that the fabric is different from the one of a classic lingeriebe cause it is made to be worn in the water so it doesn’t ruin in contact with water.
As we said before it’s easy to feel confused looking at all the offers of bikini types so my advice is to start from choosing the one that is right for our body type:
- Athletic: if you have an athletic body you should focus on feminine cuts and details; show off your toned lower half with embellishments at the hip and a tampered-back bottom. Make look your chest area soft with a girlie print. Pass on bandeaus and shapeless tanks.
- Curvy: if you have a curvy figure you should choose a suit that complements curves while keeping assets firmly in place; opt for a solid print that won’t distort your proportions and look for a balconette or halter style to support your chest. If you’re not an exhibitionist you should avoid anything with shifty string top or bottom
- Pear: If your lower half is a little larger you can camouflage it with a strategically cut bottom; work on your hips and thighs with a full-coverage briefs, hipsters or boy shorts. Keep the attention on the upper half with molded cups, halter straps or cleavage detailing, stay away from loud “look at me!” prints on your lower half.
- Straight: if you have a straight figure you have two options, fake some curves or take advantages of the fact that you’ve nothing to hide. Enhance your boobs and butt with ruffles or padding, flaunt your straight silhouette in an itty-bitty string bikini and avoid sex-appeal quashing bandeau tops and sporty bottoms.
Second issue: color! The answer is simple: you should choose the color you like the most keeping attention to your skin tone, if you have a very clear skin you shouldn’t choose too light colors and if you have a more dark skin tone you can opt for more gaudy and brilliant colors.
Last but not least we should give an advice to the ones who don’t like bikini because they deserve to have an alternative too, right? So for the bikini non-lovers I could suggest one-pieces. This is another type of swimwear and it usually covers our torso except for the back or upper chest depending on the style. Some people consider one-piece swimsuit more modest than a two piece bikini and in some situations the wearing of a one-piece swimsuit may be mandatory or expected. But beyond this we can say that one-pieces are also a valid alternative for the ones who don’t feel very comfortable with their body and who want to feel a little more “covered”, even if today there are also some types of one-pieces that don’t leave a lot to the imagination lol.
Both bikinis and one-pieces have advantages and disadvantages, but it’s subjective because they could be perfect for some reason or vice versa for some others so my advice is to always start form to yourself: ask yourself what is better for your body and your confidence and you won’t have any difficulties in finding what fits you better.
If you follow these simple advises you’ll feel the queen of the beach and all girls will ask how you learned to choose so well for your person 😉
How can I find my skin type?
The first step we need to make in order to understand how to set our skin care routine is to know our skin type.
1-Wash your skin and remove all the day’s make up and oil
2- Let your skin rest and don’t apply any product until it return to its natural state
3-At this point you can observe your skin and determine if it’s normal. oily, dry or a combination of the previous
How can I keep my skin hydrated?
Hydration is one of the main element of our skin protection routine: we should choose cleaning and exfoliating products with hydrating formulas, but don’t forget the simplest gesture: drink, drink, drink! Around 8 glasses of water per day will help your skin to be perfect
How can I avoid skin irritation?
To avoid our skin to get irritated there are some adroitness we should observe, we should be sure to choose make up products that are test against these problems and that are suitable for our skin type overall if it’s delicate, we should always clean our brushes regularly to fight infections and clogged pores.
Can food help my skin beauty?
A balanced diet with a wide variety of fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods is a must of our skin. It will nurture our skin with all the necessary elements. It’s obviously better to avoid food with lots of fats
Today leggings are a must in every girl’s wardrobe. They are very versatile, in fact they can be worn in simple outfits or with something that makes your look appear more elegant and sophisticated.
The first question we can ask about leggings is: what color should I wear them? I think that we could begin from basic colors like black and grey. These colors allow our leggings to be combined with everything else and they also can make our dress or our oversize pullover pop; so we can start from keeping in our wardrobe two pair of each.
Fantasies are perfect for the one who like to dare: leggings are available in billions of fantasies and extravagant colors and they are ideal if we want to create a special outfit.
But attention! Lol. If we’re wearing very colorful leggings or with eccentric fantasies we should combine them with neutral bottoms… we don’t want to look like a rainbow! So we can wear our fancy leggings with a shirt or a pullover of a neutral color, in these case our leggings will be the protagonist.
Last but not least thing to consider is that leggings are VERY tight and we should remember we’re not wearing simple jeans. Starting by saying that every woman is beautiful in her own way and that she can wear whatever she wants (because who cares about other people think?), we should have in our mind that our body is very exposed so if we don’t want to feel uncomfortable because of our little flaws that could be highlighted by this clothe, we should be sure to buy leggings that are not too tight or too short because they could make our legs appear shorter.
Concluding we can say that leggings are perfect if you want to create basic outfits but also more studied looks, it just depends on our choice of colors and fantasies. The trick is to be creative but staying simple 😉

For some girls make up is indispensable and they put on their face lots of products, from foundation to bronzer, but skin needs to be protected form these products even if they’re tested and they won’t create any allergic reaction. With a simple gesture of self loving you can put a cream in your face and your neck in order to create a thick barrier that prevents make up to irritate your skin.
