A Slice Of Life | Surf Bikinis Guest Series by Stephanie Schechter

Post Three - 1

Every spring, female surfers face a major challenge. No, not finding a lineup that isn’t blown out by 11am… but finding some bikinis that actually stay on while surfing- that still look, you know, cute! There are plenty of bikinis out there dubbed “Surf Swimwear,” but often times their fabric is stiff, their cuts are unflattering, and behold: they STILL fall off. Personally, I have found that for bikini bottoms, cheeky cut, seamless suits actually stay on, and flatter the form of any body type! Of course, for women who want to look awesome while remaining modest, there are plenty of seamless cut full coverage bottoms, which also flatter all shapes and sizes! As far as tops go, coverage can be key. Really, finding tops that stay on while surfing truly depends on body type. As a surfer on the bustier side, I have found that the more coverage and support, the better. Usually sports bra style tops stay on the best, but it is definitely not worth sacrificing style… Fortunately, there are some super rad brands that make some pretty rad tops that provide plenty of sporty support!

Underwater photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
Experiment with a weight belt. If you are having trouble diving under the surface and staying down, this can make the world of a difference. (But please remember to be safe and use the proper weight for your body, in addition to practicing in a controlled environment.)
