Skirtinis, also sometimes called swim skirts or skirted swimwear are possibly the most figure flattering kind of swimwear there is for women. A skirtini is swimsuit with a short skirt (more like a long frill) attached to the bottom. This flared bottom makes the thighs appear slimmer and is terrific for hiding any cellulite you might have on your buttocks or at the top of the thighs. Skirtinis also give the illusion of elongating the body, drawing the eye downwards which is also incredibly slimming.
Skirtini is a clever blend of the words bikini and skirt but is actually more like a swimsuit with a built in skirt or some form of frill at the lower edge.
These skirts can be just a few inches long to create a fill effect or they can be longer, sometimes coming down to near the knee, for a more practical effect, such as being able to walk straight from the beach, into a town or village to grab a bite at a local cafe without having to change.
Skirtini bottoms completely change the way your garment looks. It can add a kind of classic pin up appearance to your outfit with a frilly trim, but it can also be super practical and elegant at the same time. It's a classic look that is also new and interesting and entirely original.
Skirtini swimwear strikes the perfect balance between the old and new, as well and the delightful and the sensible. These careful balances are something that so many designers find hard to achieve, but with something this versatile, everyone who designs swimwear can do it and everyone who loves swimwear can enjoy it. Although the name refers to a bikini, there are other types of swimwear that are similar and just as stylish. You can find designers that make skirtini swimsuits from tankinis, plus size skirtinis and bathing suit skirtini combos.
