Let's be real the idea of a strapless bikini can strike fear in the hearts of many women. Visions of wardrobe malfunctions and constant readjustments abound. Yet, the bandeau bikini endures as a summer staple. Why? Because when done right, it's a flattering and versatile style that exudes effortless chic.

  • Fabric and Fit are Crucial: Look for quality materials (think recycled fabrics for an eco-friendly bonus). Our special fabric blend is not only sustainable, but offers amazing features like bi-elasticity, shape retention, UV ray protection, sun cream and oil resistance, and even chlorine resistance! Choose styles with grippy lining for extra security.

  • Detachable Straps for the Win: A savvy way to add some reassurance if you need it.
