This bikini top creates a perfect subtle look that is incredibly beautiful and sexy. The top simply wraps comfortably around the body, providing support and comfort while also looking incredibly subtle.

If you want a bikini top that is incredibly low-key and won’t draw too much attention to itself, then this is the one for you!

5. Reversible Backless Bikini Top By EdgewaterAve

Not only does the backless design give this bikini top a slight sexiness, but the shape of the central bra section on the front allows a good view into the bust without being too revealing, and while still providing lots of support!

6. Bondi Bikini By Rebecca Page

You will totally be the highlight of the beach when you wear this immense bikini to the beach (see also “Posh Beach Robe Tutorial“). It has such a shiny and vibrant look that is almost reminiscent of a mermaid.

This gives it an almost otherworldly and fantastical look that will quickly make it one of your favorite bikinis in your collection!

The knotted section at the front of the bust also gives the bikini a slight rustic charm!

7. Waterfall Swimsuit By Ellie And Mac

We love the upper half of this swimsuit that features a draping section that hangs down from the upper body, making it so befitting of the ‘Waterfall’ name!

8. Harley Bikini Top By Edgewater Ave

We totally adore the asymmetrical look of this top that gives it a very edgy, vibrant, and modern look that makes it a perfect top to wear to a pool party or when you simply want to feel like a celebrity.

Despite being asymmetrical, this bikini top still provides loads of support and is comfortable to wear for hours at a time!

9. Two Piece By Rebecca Page

A two-piece bikini is a perfect design to go for if you are looking for something classic that is focused on comfort above all else.

This is one of the most comfortable and supportive bikini designs on this list, and we totally love the way it looks when it is worn!

It is incredibly flattering and hugs nicely to the body providing some amount of sexiness, while still being incredibly comfortable and breathable.

10. Ipswich Swimsuit By Cashmerette

This is one of our favorite swimsuit bikinis on this list because it has such an adorable retro style to it.

The striped look helps to create a sense of structure and order that makes you look totally amazing when you wear it.

The inclusion of the red band wrapped around the waist helps to exaggerate hourglass and pear-shaped figures, making you feel even more beautiful than ever!

11. Cottesloe Swimsuit Pattern By Magan Nielsen

The bottom half of this bikini pattern has a slightly larger design that contrasts with the slightly smaller size of the top half, to create a more adorable and beautiful look!

The best thing about this design is that it looks totally handmade, and has a rustic charm to it. It wraps around the body in a really interesting way while still providing the most support possible.

13. The Riri By Mimi G

This one-piece swimsuit bikini manages to strike the perfect balance between being revealing and sexy and subtle and modest.

The upper half allows a strong view of the bust, while the lower half provides all-around coverage.

The back of the bikini is very subtle which helps to add to the natural and sexy appeal of the overall design. Wearing this to the beach amongst friends and family is a total joy!

14. Sophie Swimsuit By Closet Core Patterns

We love the simple use of multiple materials to bring this bikini to life. The design helps to create a color contrast that really draws the eye and also exaggerates the figure, making it appear more slender!

The top also features a shelf for added support!
