How to tie a swimsuit
Step Nr.1 – Check the Quality of the String

To begin with, the quality of the swimsuit string is of extreme importance to succeed in tying your swimsuit tightly and securely. Whether you wish to tie a bikini top, bikini bottom or wrap around swimsuit, the quality of the strings matter as it is the key to successful knot.

If you are wearing your last year bathing suit, just make sure the string is still intact and durable enough to hold up well. If the string is worn or frayed, it is more likely to get loose or come undone.

If you are wearing a new bathing suit, pay attention to the length of the strings so that it is possible to tie a knot. Moreover, the better the fit of the swimsuit, the easier to tie it. If the bathing suit fits poorly, even the proper knot will not help in looking and feeling good.

Step Nr.2 – Time to Tie

Once the quality of the string is checked and workable, it is time to tie it. This is the action making many of us anxious as what can be tied, also can be untied, and none of us would wish to experience the embarrassing moment of swimsuit untieing in the public. But if the knot is not durable and loose, it can easily happen.

Therefore, we have listed below the secure and durable ways of tying strings. Just make sure you don’t tie the string too tight to avoid pain and red skin.


Square Knot – Durable and Easy Option of Tying Your Swimsuit

Square knot is a popular way of tying swimsuit string as the knot is durable and lasting. It is impossible to loosen or get undone so you can enjoy your day on the beach to a full extent.

Personally, I always use square knot for tying my swimsuits as when it comes to wearing a bathing suit, feeling secure and keeping everything covered stands above all the other things for me.

However, the only drawback of this knot is that it is hard to untie it. Therefore, we have found the other option – better bow knot.


Better Bow Knot – Elegant and Secure Way of Tying A Swimsuit String

Better bow knot is another popular way of tying a swimsuit. This knot looks elegant and stays in its place even when the material gets wet. It is easy to both tie and untie it. The knot itself is durable and secure.

The only drawback of this knot is that it is too easy to untie it and it can happen accidentally leading to an embarrassing moment. But a friend of mine has been tying this knot for all her life and up to now, she hasn’t experienced such an accident.

    I must tell you that this article is not only beneficiary to women alone but to men also because I could remember  I and my wife arguing on the best way to tie a swimsuit whereby she was showing me different methods which I disagree, reading this article I discovered some of her steps are correct. I guess she must be following you because it seems this is where she got the information if not I will recommend your site to her.

    Thanks for sharing this. Totally agree in checking the quality of the strings to avoid any accidents. Thank goodness I haven’t really had any. I just secure my swimsuit in the classic way using double knots. I also make sure that its tight since it feels looser when I start swimming. Next time, I would love to try the other ways of tying your swimsuit that you’ve shared.

    Exemplary instructions! This article not only helps women learn how to tie a swimsuit in a secure and safe manner but also their male partners. I must say that there were a few wardrobe malfunctions when I helped tie bikini tops. If I had found your 2 step process for tying a bikini back in my younger years it could have saved me some difficult situations. Do you find that some swimsuit strings tend to deteriorate faster than others? Any difference between salt or chlorine exposure?

      Hey Paul

      Yeah, this is for sure a life-saver for many male partners 🙂

      Strings containing more elastic fibers tend to deteriorate faster due to the fact that elastic fibers are more fragile and being exposed to tension all the time – they tend to break.

      Basically, salt and chlorine exposure is treated the same as both of them are devastating to the vulnerable material of bathing suits.

      Cheers, Arta

    What an excellent post because tying the right knot to secure your swimsuit appears to be a minor thing but actually there’s a lot to consider. Not only does it have to be secure when dry but when wet also, yet it also has to be easy to undo when it’s time to undo it. But most of all it needs to be secure! Thanks for posting the video: a whole world of knots I knew nothing about.
