Bandeau style swimsuit tops never go out of fashion. A bandeau looks like a simple band of cloth that covers the breasts, but it usually has sophisticated construction like side boning, underwires, padding in the cups and silicone gripper strips on the top edge to keep it in place. Some bandeau swim tops even come in bra-sizing. Although a bandeau is typically strapless, many styles features straps and others come with detachable straps. An interesting variation is the halter bandeau, with a tie that runs through an opening in the center between the cups and then ties around the neck. Since 2-piece swimwear is typically sold as separates, you can mix and match colors, styles and sizes to create your own personal fashion statement.
