Minimal coverage: when less is more!

Reading Time: 1 minute 44 seconds

Flaunt it if you’ve got it: a day at the beach or pool is the perfect occasion to strut your stuff in a minimal coverage bikini. Aside from celebrating bodies of all kinds, low-coverage suits pack a surprising number of advantages into such a modest amount of fabric.

Why we love minimal coverage


For decades, women have gone to great lengths to avoid chunky tan lines – and anyone who’s visited a nude beach can tell you that the easiest way to get an even tan is to wear as little as possible! Minimal coverage bikinis are the key to achieving a uniform glow without showing up in your birthday suit (just make sure to wear sunscreen if you’re going for gold).


It might sound counterintuitive, but surfers are actually great candidates for a low-coverage swimsuit: the less fabric you have rustling around, the easier it is to keep everything in place, especially when it comes to bottoms. Our cheeky bottoms are an excellent solution for surfers who want to avoid uncomfortable bunching, or worse – being accidentally exposed by a rogue wave.


As an added bonus, minimal coverage bottoms do a great job at elongating your legs, especially if you go for a high-cut design like the Abby: when the leg opening hits a little higher on the hip, magic happens.
