Tube Top Bikini

A tube top bikini has been a beach staple since the 1940s with a surge of popularity in the 1980s, and it has remained a favorite ever since.  A lot of women hesitate to buy a tube top for fear that they will fall out of the top at an inopportune moment.  A properly fitting tube top can actually do just the opposite and keep everything right where it needs to be, and they are not just for small chests, either.

Tube Top Bikini

A tube top bikini such as the one seen here is designed to fit snugly which is how they stay in place.  It is best to buy a tube top that ties in the back rather than fastens at a fixed length or, worse, just slides on over your head.  With ties in the back, you can adjust the snugness to your own body which usually makes for a perfect fit.  For women with larger chests, tying the tube top snugly causes a minimizing effect.  There are other types of strapless tops outside the classic tube top style that have more of a push-up effect, so it is important to know the look you are going for before you buy the top so you don’t end up being disappointed in it.

A tube top bikini can be rounded out with any number of bottom styles.  A lot of bikinis are sold as sets, and in that case you usually don’t get a choice as to which bottom you prefer.  However, if you have the opportunity to purchase both pieces separately, that is the best way to get a bikini that works specifically for you and your body type.  With such a versatile style, a tube top look great with any bikini bottom, so the only thing you need to concern yourself with is which one you like the best!
