Best Swimwear For Tanning On the Beach

Ahhh, holiday season. It's the best, isn't it? We all deserve a getaway and there's no better place than the beach. It doesn't matter whether you're having a vacation or a staycation, having the sand in between your toes does something good for the soul. When you're on your beach getaway, you're probably going to ask yourself 'What's the best kind of swimwear for getting a tan on the beach?' Well, here at Belle Lingerie we know a thing or two about swimwear and we're here to guide you through the different types of swimwear and which style is best for tanning on the beach.


First up is the classic halterneck bikini bra. Halterneck is a style of clothing where the straps run from the front of the garment to around the back of the neck, leaving the upper back uncovered. The halter style is an excellent way of maximizing your body's exposure to the sun to minimise tan lines. Other than the practicality of wearing a halterneck to tan on the beach, this style bikini top looks extremely flattering on the body, holding your bust up and supporting you throughout your wear at the beach. This particular Pour Moi Halterneck Bikini is underwired, giving you the best support a bikini could offer you. The great thing about halternecks is that the straps/tie is completely adjustable and up to you. Due to the straps being so easily tied and untied, you can easily untie the straps when sunbathing to reduce the risk of tan lines even more, win-win! If you're looking for a luxury halterneck for your staycation, then you should definitely browse brands like Aubade and Marie Jo, two of our most popular luxury brands.






Next up is the balcony bikini. Balcony bras are an extremely popular everyday style bra that most of us have worn before. Balcony bikinis are a great option for those blessed with bigger busts, as they offer excellent support and create an uplifted and round shape of the breasts. Balconette bikinis tend to have wider straps so sit further apart on your shoulders and lift from the bottom of the cup to create an uplifted, fuller shape. Balcony bikinis have good coverage but offer less overall coverage than a full cup, making this a great bikini to wear under your beach clothes for when you nip to the shop for an ice lolly, of course. This particular bikini top is the Curvy Kate Sea Leopard Balcony Bikini Top and is one of our all-time favourite designs, it's so trendy and chic, perfect for the beach. We have a range of balcony bikinis for you to choose from, take a look here. Some of our top picks include the Pour Moi Splash Padded Underwired Bikini Top, the Curvy Kate Sunseeker Balcony Bikini Top and of course the Prima Donna Swim Sherry Underwired Full Cup Bikini Top.





Now we have the padded bikini top. This is perfect for those who are wanting to accentuate their bust while on their beach trip. Accentuating your breasts can make you feel a lot more confident in yourself, which is very important. After all, you definitely deserve to feel amazing in your swimwear. The padded cups from the outer part of the cups lift and push the breasts together, creating a cleavage. These are perfect for tanning at the beach as they expose a lot of your body to the sun, minimising the risk of tan lines. This Pour Moi Positano Padded Bikini Top has underwired foam cups for excellent support whilst you're at the beach topping up your tan. The Prima Donna Swim Cocktail Padded Triangle Bikini Top is a perfect choice if you want to indulge in swimwear for your much-deserved beach trip.







Here we have the full cup bikini, perfect for those who are looking for a little more coverage on the bust. A full cup bikini covers the entire breast and is perfectly ideal for those who have been blessed with bigger breasts. Full cup bikinis are a good option if you prefer to show less cleavage whilst on the beach, which is perfectly okay. They still look and feel amazing whilst on! This Pour Moi Full Bikini Top is the perfect example of a trendy and stylish full cup bikini top. At Belle Lingerie we have a variety of full cup bikinis you can choose from, there's something for everyone. The Prima Donna Swim Vegas Padded Strapless Bikini Top is one of our favourites, the design is so funky and chic. Another stunning full cup bikini you should check out is the Pour Moi Odyssey Bikini Top, this is a stunning design and certainly does not disappoint.







Ahhh, now we have the bandeau bikini. This is probably one of the top bikini styles of all time. The reason for its sheer popularity is due to the fact it exposes all of your upper body bar the breasts, meaning that those funny tan lines won't exist. The bandeau bikini is worn simply around the breast and doesn't cover much more, making it perfect to wear on those hot days at the beach. This bikini style is extremely comfortable to lay around in. This Panache Marina Strapless Bikini Top is the perfect option to go for as the straps are removable, meaning you can choose whether you want to go strapless or not. Bandeau bikinis aren't just made for those with smaller breasts, we like to provide swimwear for all sizes here at Belle Lingerie. The Curvy Kate Tropicana Bandeau Bikini Top is an excellent option for those who have a bigger bust, it's underwired and has moulded cups so you're definitely going to get the support you need.






Lastly, we have the most timeless piece of swimwear, swimsuits. This is a perfect option for those who prefer to cover up a little bit more whilst enjoying the sunshine at the beach. Swimsuits have become increasingly popular over the last few years, and now come in several different designs, colours, and styles, there really is something for everybody. As you can see this Pour Moi Positano Halterneck Swimsuit has a plunging neckline, making it extremely flattering on the bust. Other options, like the Miraclesuit Revele Rock Solid Control Swimsuit, are perfect for those who are really wanting swimwear that will flatter their body. Swimsuits are extremely comfortable and although they cover up more than bikinis, they still expose your skin to the sun for that lovely tan you're hoping for.
