Victoria's Secret 16 Bikini Bottoms Styles - Explained

Like if this guide is helpful
Updated February 13th 2014 - Thanks for clicking into my third and final Victoria's Secret guide. I hope this information is helpful - especially for international buyers. The VS site is shockingly devoid of real and usual information on their swimwear - and after selling over 15000 bikini separates over 7 years, I feel like I can offer some good advice.
There are now only 10 bikini bottoms to talk about, eBay has locked the title in (just didn't want you all to think I can't count!)

Strings, Back Coverage - Moderate

Victoria's Secret classic string design and are extra flattering, providing maximum versatility and a tailored fit.

Cheeky Hipkini, -  w/ Back Seam Ruching, Back Coverage - Minimal

Victoria's Secret string design and are extra flattering, providing maximum versatility and a tailored fit. The back has less coverage than usual and a feminine ruching effect for a tailored, curve hugging fit that has a really flattering effect on your bum.

Ruched Hipkini, - Back Coverage - Moderate

Low rise and boast a wide band design that seats nice and low on your hips. The highly elasticated ruched detail on both sides gives these bottoms a really clever design feature - ensuring that these bottoms will never dig into you

Side Ruch / Twisted Bottom, Back Coverage - Moderate

The ruched side panels are sewn separately onto the bottom and act independently as string would. They can be moved up (for a high thigh look) or down (for a straight line, very low rise look) whilst the body of the bottoms do not move at all.

Low-Rise Scoop, Back Coverage - Moderate

Low rise and boast a wide band design that seats nice and low on your hips and do not dig in.

Mid & High Rise Scoop, Back Coverage - Moderate / Full

Not only will they ensure that you have a completely seamless and smooth look when wearing your bathers, but they have a light control, slimming you down for extra confidence at the beach. They boast a wide band design that seats nicely on you without ever digging in.

Foldover Bottoms, - Moderate

Boast a wide band design that seats nice and low on your hips and do not dig in. The foldover design makes them really versatile - they can be adjusted for a high waited, medium or low rise look depending on your mood.

Boyshorts, - Back Coverage - Moderate

The boyshort bottoms have a ruched, adjustable side tie and can be attached for a higher leg or lower leg look.

Double String Bottoms, - Back Coverage - Moderate

Extra flattering, providing maximum versatility and a tailored fit. The string wraps around in a square shape, allowing you to pull the string tighter, or loosen them, without loosing coverage on the side, and without the strings ever digging into you.l and a feminine ruching effect for a tailored, curve hugging fit that has a really flattering effect on your bum.

Swimskirt w/ Built in Bottoms, - Back Coverage - Full

Looks great on the beach or in the water. They pull on and have matching inbuilt bikini bottoms underneath the mini skirt. The 2 pieces are made from exactly the same water resistant bikini material, and are a really flattering and versatile piece to add to your swimwear collection.
