This is THE Bikini! 👙 plus Memorial Day Sales.

Every so often I come across a style that really speaks to me. The new BIRDSONG Tie Front Bikini Top is it for me this season! It comes in colors, prints and bottom styles for everyone. Here is everything you need to know about this amazingly versatile style! Retailers are now offering competitive sales to lure shoppers in to start their summer purchases, now swimsuits are often marked down during big Memorial Day events! Happy Shopping!

You should know by now that I am an advocate for bra-sized Swimwear. So that of course is the first reason I love this suit. The overall adjust-ability of this suit makes it special. For example the slide-hook back closure doesn't have just one slot, it has three! This will help you get your custom fit.


So let's discuss more features.... Second reason I love this suit... it has UNDERWIRE. Underwire will provide a shape a lift that a wireless bikini top just never will. Third, it has ADJUSTABLE STRAPS that you can tighten, loosen, convert to cross cross. And finally, it has REMOVABLE PADS. Some like pads and some don't, so it works for both. I enjoy a pad in swimwear for modesty and nipple coverage.


Now let's talk stylistically. All things retro are in at the moment for swimwear. The Tie Front is very retro, very vintage. Retro swimwear is the perfect option for the modern, seductive and classy, woman. "Tied with a knot" styles made Harpers Bizarres 5 Best Swimsuit Trend list for the Summer of 2020. Tie Front styles can be very plungy and relieving, but the BIRDSONG Tie Front Bikini does a good job providing coverage and support while still being sexy.

So you can't have a bikini top without the perfect bottom. You pick which one works for you!

Bare Necessities is offering CHEEKY, BASIC, HIPSTER, SKIRTED, TIE HIGH-WAIST and ROUCHED HIGH-WAIST to pair with this bikini top. Pro tip: When trying to decide on the perfect bottom for you, you must consider the BUM COVERAGE and the RISE you prefer. Here's a little help....


When you hear CHEEKY it just means that the cut at the back is a little more coverage than a thong bikini. A classic or basic brief offers good coverage over the bum, somewhere in-between a cheeky cut and a boy short.

2. RISE:

Low Rise: Low at the front, usually on, or below, the hip bone. Often cheeky.

Mid Rise: Modest in the front, somewhere in between the low and high, but still below the Belly Button. Modest bum coverage.

High waist: Sits on the natural waist, over the hips. They can either have a low-leg opening for higher coverage or a high-leg for a more contemporary feel. Usually the high waist option has full bum coverage.

Hipster: Hugs the hips with a thick-ish band, generally sit mid-to-low-rise and has slightly less than full coverage on the bum.


Lastly, pick the color that works for you! This suit comes in tons of pattern and color. Don't be afraid to experiment. I love the idea of mixing and matching color and pattern. Try pairing the solid yellow top with the floral or polka yellow bottom.

Sage: Sage Green (almost SOLD OUT!)

Onyx: Black (darn SOLD OUT!)

Weekend Escape (darn SOLD OUT!)

Midnight: Navy, the new black. (darn SOLD OUT!)

I hope you love this swimwear as much as I do! If you need assistance knowing what size to order, you can book a virtual fitting here.



Happy Memorial Day!
