HOW TO CLEAN A WHITE BIKINI
While you’re serving looks in your white bikini this summer, don’t forget the number one rule of wearing white: White stains easily and show signs of soiling faster than other colors.
You may want to avoid tanning oil, mineral-based sunscreen, or fake tan — and shield your white bikini while you’re eating by wearing a fashionable cover-up. When in doubt, travel with stain remover!

White Bikini Dos and Don’ts
Picking and styling the right white bikini requires beach and fashion know-how. We’ve got you covered (literally!).
DO make sure you opt for a thick material that’s lined. Textured materials are also a great way to be sure to avoid a see-through suit. Investing is worth it to avoid any fashion mishaps.
DON’T shy away from a white suit if you have a paler complexion—they’ll compliment your skin tone beautifully. If you’re looking for a place to start, shop for bikinis with ivory or yellow undertones.
DO shop separates to get the right fit for your body. They also let you customize your coverage if you want a little more or a little less anywhere. Sets are great for a no-fuss shopping experience.
DON’T mix and match whites of different shades and textures. You still want your bikini to look uniform even if it’s not a coordinated set.
Do a stretch test before wearing your new white bikini. Place your hand underneath the suit and stretch the fabric a bit. Skip that suit if you can see your fingers underneath.
After all, white is the classic summer fashion color, making every skin tone look sun-kissed. From sweet ruffles to sexy barely-there bikinis, we’ve selected the best of the most trending white bikini styles here for you to choose from.
Wearing a white bikini is the best way to show off your gorgeous sun tanned skin during your summer vacation, and will look stunning in your perfect Instagram-worthy photos.
You’ll be the definition of white-hot!
How to avoid your white swimsuits turning yellow
Make sure you wash your white swimsuit immediately after you come back from your day, be it poolside or beachside, to prevent any chlorine and bacteria from setting.
Use mild detergent in cool water and add a cup of vinegar into the wash cycle to keep it bright and white.
What color bikini is most flattering?
There’s no one best color. It’s all about what colors and tones make you feel the most confident. If you have warm undertones, shop for warm hues, like red, purple, or even deep greens. For cool tones opt for jewel tones and paler colors.
While white can make tan skin look even tanner, it’s also the perfect complement to lighter skin tones. Explore different shades of white, like ivory, off-white, eggshell, cream, snow, porcelain, and more.
