Buying a bikini can be a tricky, emotionally draining exercise. We tend to be so critical of our bodies, and all those teeny-weeny string bikinis cause more anxiety than anything else. That prompted us to find a solution to the string bikini: meet the Sporty Spice of bikinis!

Whether you have a large bust or an athletic body shape, this sporty style of bikini top has you covered.

The thick straps allow for more even skin coverage and there is less chance of any mishaps or nip-slips. If the bikini-style bottoms on the Triangl bikini aren’t for you and seem too revealing, opt for high waisted shapes. See our picks below.

Good riddance to string bikinisĀ and the accompanying fear of the whole thing coming off just as you slide into the pool/take your first steps into the ocean.
