Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and while a romantic evening on the beach might be out of the question because of winter weather in your city, that doesn’t mean sexy swimsuits are completely off the menu. Hot tubs, indoor pools at a hotel or resort, and weekend getaways to one of the warm destinations we highlighted in our previous blog post are a few ways to include your favorite bikini or one piece in the festivities. And what if you don’t own any sultry swimwear just yet? Don’t panic. The style experts here at South Beach Swimsuits have put together this quick guide on what makes a swimsuit sexy, along with product recommendations to simplify your Valentine’s Day shopping. Take a look: Red is the most suggestive color Studies show that both men and women interpret the color red as a signal that the wearer is flirtatious and open to romantic fun. This not only holds true for dresses, heels, lipstick, and lingerie, but also extends to swimwear, so try the Vitamin A Vermillion Neutra Bandeau top paired with the Vermillion Adriana Hipster bottom or the LadyLux Red Triangle top and Red Moderate bottom to send a sexy message this Valentine’s Day. Black has a similarly alluring effect Ever wonder why the screen sirens of yesterday and the femme fatales of today are often portrayed in black? It’s because the color has long been associated with mystery, danger, dominance, and seduction. Add in its naturally slimming effects, and you have a sexy color for the ages. Check out the Solid Black Sunset Bia Tube halter and bottom from Vix or the Bonita Black one piece from L Space for examples of how to look beautiful in black. Play up your femininity with lace Lace has been a lingerie staple since time immemorial—and for good reason. It’s slinky, it’s provocative, and it’s oh so feminine. Get his heart racing with the Beach Bunny Gunpowder and Lace black bikini or Lady Lace Triangle Halter top and Skimpy bottom, the Gottex Seduction one piece, or the L Space Out of Towner one piece from our collection. As you can see, choosing sexy swimwear is relatively easy. If it’s red, black, or lacy, chances are you’re going to hit the jackpot, so start browsing the South Beach Swimsuits website for that perfect Valentine’s Day bikini or one piece!
