The Ultimate Guide: How to Choose the Best Monokini for Summer

Summer season has arrived! It's time to make a stylish splash at the beach or poolside. If you're looking for a versatile swimwear option, a monokini is an excellent choice. With its one-piece design that combines the allure of a bikini with the coverage of a traditional one-piece swimsuit, the monokini offers a unique and fashionable option for summer. But be warned Yemzi monokini’s aren’t designed for coverage! In this guide, I'lll walk you through the essential factors to consider when choosing the best monokini for your summer adventures.

1 Determine Your Body Shape:
Understanding your body shape is crucial for finding a monokini that accentuates your best features and makes you feel confident. Here are some common body types and suitable monokini recommendations:
• Pear Shape: Look for a monokini with detailing or patterns on the upper half to draw attention upward and balance your proportions. For example, Xia, with gold hardware on the straps.


  • Apple Shape: Opt for a monokini with ruching, draping or details around the midsection to create a flattering silhouette.
    • Hourglass Shape: Embrace your curves with a monokini that emphasizes your waistline and offers support for your bust.

2 Choose the Right Size:
Proper sizing is essential for both comfort and a flattering fit. Take accurate measurements of your bust, waist, and hips, and refer to our size chart when selecting your monokini size. Pay attention to the length of the torso as well to ensure it accommodates your body proportions properly.

3. Consider Monokini Styles:

  1. Cutout Monokini: This style features strategic cutouts in various patterns and placements, offering a playful and sexy look.
  2. High-Neck Monokini: With a higher neckline and often more coverage, this style exudes elegance and provides extra sun protection.
  3. Plunging Neckline Monokini: Perfect for those looking to make a statement, this style features a deep V-neckline that adds drama and highlights the bust.
  4. Wrap-Front Monokini: This style creates a wrapped or twisted effect across the torso, providing a flattering and slimming effect.
  5. Strappy Monokini: Featuring intricate strap designs, this style adds a touch of edginess and can enhance curves or create interesting visual effects.

4. Consider Your Activity Level:
Think about the activities you'll be engaging in while wearing your monokini. If you plan on being active, choose a monokini with secure straps and good bust support like our Yemaya style which has removable pads. For a more relaxed and sun-soaked days, prioritise style and select a monokini like Xia. Both of our monokini's are perfect for mixing and matching with skirts and other bottoms in your wardrobe..

5.Fabric Quality and Care:
Pay attention to the fabric quality when selecting your monokini. Look for high-quality materials that offer a good stretch, durability, and resistance to fading from sun exposure and chlorine. Also, check the care instructions to ensure you can properly maintain the fabric's quality over time.

Choosing the perfect monokini for summer is an exciting journey of self-expression. By considering your body shape, size, style preferences, and activity level, you can find a monokini that fits well, flatters your figure, and boosts your confidence. Embrace your unique beauty, experiment with different styles, and enjoy the sun, sand, and sea in your perfect summer monokini
