Bikini vs Swimsuit. What's your choice?

Whether you’re a bikini woman or a one piece fan, there are always many debates about which garment involves more fear when it’s up to pulling your clothes off and lounging by the pool.

As many of you are already tasked with finding the beachwear that´s both fashionable and complimentary, you may want to know that Porto Brazil’s unique swimwear collection provides you with the perfect comfort and style while enhancing your figure and highlighting your curves.

Porto Brazil has wide selection of matching swimsuits and bikinis for each of you, but before you start to panic in front of the mirror please take in mind that the perfect choice will depend on several key factors that we would like to explain.


Bikinis mainly showcase strength, confidence, and beauty. For others, covering up is actually a more comforting and empowering choice.


Remember that wearing a swimsuit vs. a bikini is usually quite different. For those of you who like jumping in and out of the water, swimming, exercising and having fun on the beach in general, bikinis just aren't very practical.

On the other hand, if you’re willing to sunbathe, it would make more sense to choose a bikini for an all-over tan and avoid those uncomfortable tan lines.


If you're super fit, our Laces BR Swimsuit is perfect for you. If you enjoy enhancing your chest, our Peep or Geo Flowers bikinis are your best friends. If you're proud of your rear, go for our Carioca thong cut edition.

If you’re planning an evening pool party, grab our Ipanema Reversible Bikini that includes a straight cut asymmetric top with scoop neck and a side laced Brazilian cut brief.

For a stylish step forward, switch to the alternative Ipanema Swimsuit that features an elegant monochrome single split shoulder strap with a European cut back.

Alternatively, if you prefer catching some sun on the beach during the day, Porto Brazil also offers you the perfect choice. Our Copacabana swimwear line provides two form factors: a slipover bikini top with a scoop neck and slim shoulder straps and its unmistakable Brazilian cut brief. Check our selection of colors, there are many to choose from.

For an evening venue, our Love Lace swimsuit is the perfect choice. This garment has a gourgeous open back detail with a brazilian cut back and also the added value of being able to wear it for many other ocasions, not only while you're on the beach.


You should also keep in mind the differences in fabric, pattern, shape and type of swimwear that will be the most comfortable and make you look your best.

A matter of style

One-piece swimwear continues to play hard this year as swimsuits are considered as the ideal option for any occasion. According to most fashionistas, if you add the correct accessories, a swimsuit provides a current and modern touch to your beachwear.

Porto Brazil’s Copacabana swimsuit maintains the outstanding style of the bikini but adds a slightly daring touch with a high cut leg and thong style back.

Whether you decide to go for one or the other, remember that beachwear fashion is all about presenting the best version of our body, even when we're lying poolside.

These are only some useful tips to prepare the upcoming season so try to define your own style before you finally decide to hit the beach.
