Bikinis are worn all over the world but not always in the same way! In fact every country has a unique way in which they wear them! We have chosen 5 countries to give examples!
Despite the relaxed lifestyle Australians are known for, women are quite conservative when it comes to swimwear. Some of their largest brands are SEAFOLLY, JETS, Tigerlily, Billabong and Piping Hot, all of which have mostly full coverage bottom swim suits. There is a small cult of brazilian wearing bikinis along the coast lines but generally Australia will wear a full coverage bottom and moderate coverage top.
This one is a bit obvious but had to be mentioned! Home of the “Brazilian” cut suit! You won’t have a hard time finding a brazilian cut or thong wearing girl in Brazil… It’s a part of the lifestyle. We admire Brazilian women’s confidence with their body and think every girl should own one of their small cut bathing suits! Some of the biggest Brazilian swimwear brands are CIA.MARITAMA, Agua Bendita and Poko Pano. All have collections of booty showing, bright bikinis!
The US is a bit of a mixed (bikini) bag. Majority of the US wears full coverage suits, one pieces and tankinis, however cities like Miami, California and Hawaii embrace the beach lifestyle and with it the bikinis get smaller and smaller! We love it! 😉 Some of the largest brands within the US are VITAMIN A, Splendid, VIX, Hurley and ATHENA.
France has a unique taste in swimwear. They enjoy more conservative suits – high waisted and full coverage suits are popular. The most reputable brand of swimwear in France is ERES. French women take a very tasteful and fashionable approach to swimwear.
On the beaches of China you will see mostly full coverage suits and one pieces. Chinese women are not at the beach to get a tan, in fact they will stay shaded most of the time to protect their skin. Some women will go to great measures at the beach, even covering their entire bodies (including their faces) so to protect themselves from harmful UV rays, with the latest trend, called the “facekini”. Basically the opposite to a country like Brazil! We admire their dedication to skin protection!
