5 Common Swimwear Misconceptions

Posted on July 18 2014

     When it comes down to it we all know bikini season frightens a large percent of women. It is hard to be comfortable wearing what many like to call a "string bikini" but what most don't know is how those bikinis are actually engineered to flatter and accentuate several different body types. Swimwear today has come far from the unpadded and unlined playsuits of the 1950's, and far more comfortable than the corset style swimsuit. The designers today have done their homework and have put together swimwear lines to cater to women of all shapes and sizes. So what is missing? The understanding of the products from Kalloné and the very common misconceptions of swimwear:




5. "All bikinis give me a muffin top."

Solution: High waist bikini bottoms

A huge trend in swimwear for 2014 are high waist bikini bottoms. Very retro and very flattering! If you are worried of the muffin top faux-pas avoid bikinis with thin elastic at the waist. Rock a pair of Noche Cha Cha High Waist Side Panel Bottoms, Shirred High Waist Bottoms or Vavoom High Waist Bottom with Bow Belt. 



4. "I have a little bit of a belly, I need a one piece."

Wrong. Although one pieces are hot right now there is more than one way to camouflage your belly in a stylish way. One pieces are definitely one of them. Today we offer all sorts of trendy one pieces with cool cut outs, patterns and details like the Hourglass One Piece in Looking Glass, Jena One Piece and the Aztek Goddess Monokini. Aside from one pieces there are options like the Moulded Cup Tankini which has a mesh layer over the entire stomach that leaves a peep of skin. 



3. "Bandeau tops will not support larger breast sizes."

Actually, many bandeau style bikini tops along with halter style tops are designed specifically for larger bust sizes. Often women with larger breasts feel they are forgotten about when it comes to swimwear options. Here's the good news: Kalloné offers several swimwear options for women with larger busts like The Underwire Bustier by Swim Systems, Sunset Sentinels Top by Maaji and The Dahlia Moulded Bandeau by Simone Perele.



2. "Why spend money on so little fabric."

Because when you spend a little more money you are investing not spending. Every piece at Kalloné is brought to you by great observation in quality and trends. When you buy a piece of lingerie or a bikini we assure you quality and satisfaction. A bikini of great quality will last seasons beyond any bikini of lower price.




1. "I'm old, I can't wear sexy swimwear."

Wrong. Swimwear is not designed only for ages 17-25. Many styles at Kalloné like Susan One Piece by Solkissed is super sexy but appropriate. If you are afraid that your swimwear collection is a little too young looking make your way to one of the Kalloné locations to get a proffessional consulation. Solve the issue by revamping your collection into a mature, sophisticated and sexy selection!






Xo, Kalloné
