    Halloween Hacks: How to Use Swimwear to Create an Unforgettable Costume!

    October 8, 2015

    Have you thought about who you want to be for Halloween?

    The best Halloween costumes are creative and fun. They can also make you feel beautiful and sexy. For a costume that has all of these qualities, why not consider using well-fitted, gorgeous swimwear? Bra-sized swimwear that’s tailored to your body can become the foundation for an unforgettable costume. We’ve come up with a few examples to make this Halloween one to remember!
    Sports and Dance
    Swimwear works well for a variety of costumes involving dance and athletic activities. Dress up as a belly dancer with flare pants and a lacy bikini top. Accessorize by adding scarves or veils, finger cymbals, an anklet, and an arm cuff. Another option is a flirty roller skater costume; throw on some retro skates and cruise along in a cute skirt paired with a tankini or bikini top. Pair our beautifully designed rash guard with board shorts, sport some sunnies, and carry a surfboard and embody a cute surfer girl for the night! 

    Mythical Figures

    Transform into a mermaid or a sea nymph! A ruffled skirt and a bra-sized swimsuit top can serve as the foundation for the costume. Add seashell jewelry, throw a starfish in your hair, apply turquoise and glitter makeup, and you’re a vision of mermaid perfection.

    Blast from the Past

    Why not dip into the past for inspiration? Our Glamorous Pin-up Girl might model a gorgeous one-piece suit designed with polka dots. Pick out eye-popping heels, choose a vintage hairstyle, and combine the swimsuit with a high-waisted pair of shorts or skirt. Be sure not to limit yourself to one-piece swimsuits; our tankinis or bikini sets can also work for these iconic looks!
