The Ultimate Bikini Bottom Guide

          With summer in full swing, it’s about time you went crazy bikini shopping! But with so many Blackbough options out there, we get how confusing it can be. Here’s how you can find the right bikini bottom for you!

At Blackbough Swim, we have two main bikini bottom categories: high-rise and mid-rise.


High-rise bikini bottoms are super on-trend again, and we completely understand why! These fall right above the hip bone and make your legs look über long.

Cheeky Coverage

Feeling a little cheeky? True to its name, the cheeky shows of a lot of skin (while still staying classy, of course!)

Stassy Cheeky Bottoms

Your thong's little sister for the beach. It has a little more coverage than your average thong cut but will still leave your bottom looking as cute as can be!

Classic High-Rise Bottoms

Get that baywatch look on-point with the classic high-rise bikini bottoms! It's the perfect, staple bikini in every girl's collection.

Tease Coverage

Right in between the cheeky and modest, these styles provide ample coverage while still showing off the goods!

Paris Bottoms

Combining our best features in one! It has the v-shape of the Stassy Cheeky, coverage of the Maui and a slim waistband like the Brooke.

Maui Bottoms

The Maui is perfect for keeping that muffin-top at bay by strategically holding in your love handles with its high-rise cut. Our absolute bestseller, you can’t go wrong with this style!

Taylor Bottoms

The Taylor Bottoms offer you three things: longer legs, a thinner waist, and a killer color combination. Great for when you want to hide those love handles with the two-tone color blocking.  

Bonnie High-Waist Bottoms

Now who says high-waisted bottoms can’t be sexy? The Bonnie features two splices up front which slim your waist and makes your booty pop! A true winner in our books.

Modest Coverage

Too much skin not your thing? No worries! Our modest options will still leave you looking h-o-t.

Coco Bottoms

Blackbough’s most covered bottoms. Perfect for those conservative babes who still want to show off their fun side with its overlapping “V” bands.


Your standard bikini bottom. Worn low at the front; on or below the hipbone. Go for these for a longer torso.

Cheeky Coverage

Not quite ready for a thong? The cheeky gives you a little more coverage while still showing off those great buns!

Simone Bottoms

The Simone features daring strappy sides with minimum coverage and maximum tease up front! Great for babes who want to show off their hip bones.

Tease Coverage

Show off your flirtatious side by slipping into something sexy but with a little more coverage than the cheeky.

Brooke Bottoms

The Brooke is perfect for the tease. With its center back seam which pinches the bottoms to prevent loose fabric, it’s sure to make you look booty-ful. 

Riri Bottoms

The Riri features a thin, elastic waistband with gold rings for maximum oomph. Great for those days that go from beach to club!

Tallulah Side-Tie Bottoms

Customise the Tallulah to your liking thanks to its side-tie details. Easy to wear and pair any way you want!

Classic Coverage

Your everyday bikini bottoms (made even better, of course!)

Charlie Bottoms

The Charlie is simplicity at its finest. Smooth, seamless, and covered, perfect for any pool- or beach-side event.

Minimal Bottoms

Nothing says classic like a string bikini! This piece features a surprisingly good amount of cheeky for the perfect minimal tan line on the hips!

Cleo Bottoms

Level up your classic bottoms with the Cleo’s cute knot details designed to perfectly rest right on your hip bones.

Katie Bottoms

For days when you want a no-fuss, no-frills bikini. Think of this as the perfect classic bikini that sits mid-rise - classics are classics for a reason!

Moderate Bottoms

True to its name, our moderate bikini bottoms have just the right coverage (and is also our second most popular bottoms). It features a scrunched knit from behind, which provides an extra lift for your look and a secure waistband right around the hips.
