I'm looking for a new bikini for this summer. I really like the look of white bikinis on the models, but I'm not sure if I should get one. I have a slight tan (store-bought lol), and I'm thinking that the white would make my tan look better. I've heard stories how white bikinis can be see through - has anyone actually ever had this happen to them?
I want something like this link (n white) or just a simple, plain white bikini
Well they can go see through, but that's if they don't have a lining in them. But I"m sure that they put linings in them more often than not. Give it a try. I mean, if it does go see through, you won't see those people again right? Or get one of your really good friends to come over, and jump in and out of the shower wearing it, and s/he can tell you if it's see through or not. Or just take a pic, and see for yourself.
Pretty sure a friend of mine told me some white suits have extra stuff built in so when they do get wet they are not see though, so maybe check for that. White can look nice but I like the brighter colors.
Don't worry about it. VS won't sell see through swimsuits. There ARE white bikinis that are see through when wet, but you'd have to find them elsewhere. Honestly, the two most important things about a bikini are how good your body is and how it's cut to complement your body. Color is a DISTANT third.
Having said that, you look really fair/pale in your picture. So I'd recommend steering clear of white.
