Bikinis for women with a big booty

Bikinis for The Big-Butted: The Ultimate Guide

Your butt size has caused you headaches, bikini shopping happens to be one of them, and you hate your god-given hips. You’ve tried and failed.

You want to make peace with the hips, and you are desperate to get the right swimsuits that can complement your backside.

This is the guide you need.

Your “big-butt” problem may not be a problem at all

Your big butt is unique and beautiful in its own way

You may get your booty from hormonal changes, weight gain, aging, and pregnancy. You may also have just inherited it from your parents.

Your bum is no different than every other part of your body, natural and diversified.

All the style hacks and tricks dedicated to bottom-heavy women’s day-to-day fashion are focused on two points: either highlight it or downplay it.

It may sound crazy to say that you can have the same concepts with something as revealing as swimsuits, but it’s true. It all depends on how self-aware and confident you are about your hips.

And always remember, tens of thousands of women are literally searching Google every month on how to get an ass as big and attractive as yours, so there’s absolutely no reason for you to feel bad about it.

How big is too big?

7 signs of a big butt_how to know if you have one

You can easily tell if a butt is big or not by its shape and size. But for those that are not sure about this, here are the signs:

Your body shape is a clear pear or hourglass.

Your butt is noticeably wider than your waist.

You’ve had wedgies with your underwear/swimsuits before.

You can easily get panty lines.

Wearing ill-fitted bikini bottoms/underwear with high cuts can easily give you a quad-butt.

You’ve had trouble finding normal-sized jeans that fit.

You’ve either been cat-called or received compliments/judgments about your hips.

If you can have any 3 (or more) of the above points checked, you have a big bum.

How to make a big butt look flattering in swimsuits

expert's advice on styling big hips in bathing suits

Whenever you put a suit on, you should feel relaxed or excited about the trip you are going to take, or the party you are about to be in, the last thing is to worry about how your bum is too big and how the suit won’t fit.

You can use certain swimsuit designs and style-wise common senses to make them look proportional, or striking.

Highlighting your butt

#1 – Go cheeky and let them hang

Going with a thong style, high rise, or high cut swimsuit is a bold move, but at least they do not ride up, so you don’t need to make awkward adjustments all the time.

Less fabric means more freedom, and as long as you are feeling good, there’s nothing wrong with showing your curves and letting the world have them.

What swimsuits you should get:

  • Bikini bottoms with crazy cuts.
  • Thong-style bottoms that show your entire butt.
  • One-piece suits with super cheeky designs from the waists all the way to the crotches.
  • Bathing suit bottoms with string straps and barely-there coverage for the backside.

#2 – Make them pop with extra elements (ties, braids, ruffles, straps, frills, etc.)

Exposing them is not enough, you need to take it up to another level.

If all you want is for your butt to be the first place people look, you need suits that can add extra emphasis, suits that are jealousy-inducing and scream “down here” and “my butt is better” to others.

What swimsuits you should get:

  • Bathing suits with side ties that are long enough to dangle around.
  • Bikini bottoms with exaggerated prints and patterns.
  • Bottoms that are either strappy or with extra ruffles, layers, braids, frills, etc.
  • One-piece suits with small details along the waist or on the behind.

Downplaying your butt

#1 – Use mix-n-matches to steer the attention away

To understate a butt and drive the focus away in a swimsuit, you need the right pair of top-bottom sets and design combos.

What swimsuits you should get:

  • Bikini tops with bold/exaggerated patterns (floral/animal/etc.) and minimalist bottoms.
  • Bright/vibrant color tops and plain color bottoms.
  • Wrap front V-neck bikini tops with mid-rise, wide-crotch bottoms
  • Bikini tops with extra details, and bottoms with simple designs
  • Bottoms with vertical stripes.

#2 – Balance it out with mid to full coverage

Not all swimsuits are skimpy, and no butt will be too big when you can just cover them up, this is not the end solution, but effective enough to make a big bum less intimidating.

All it takes is the proper amount of butt coverage.

What swimsuits you should get:

  • Bottoms with boyshort silhouettes.
  • Swim skirts and bikini briefs.
  • Bottoms that are bundled with sarongs and beach wraps.
  • Bottoms with lower cuts in the back.
  • Rash guard one-piece or surf suits with at least ¾ coverage in the butt area.
