The Value of Owning Surf Bikini Tops

As any woman knows, especially ones like us who have such a strong passion for surfing, having a reliable bikini top is vital. The last thing you want to deal with when trying to catch a wave is having to adjust yourself every three minutes because your top keeps shifting and not staying where it should be. Because we know how frustrating, and sometimes quite embarrassing that can be, we created the perfect bikini tops that you will never have to worry about again.

Ordinary Bikini Tops

Did you know that the bikini is much older than most may think? In 400 A.D., ancient mosaics featured women partaking in sports in bikini styled clothing. Though since then, the bikini went between phases of favoring and tabooing, today it landed as the most popular beachwear item. However, though this style has been around for quite some time, they still lacked significantly in functionality. In fact, they are not made with activity in mind at all. Anything other than sunbathing on the beach, hanging out by the pool, or just wanting to look good, they suck.

Luckily, times have changed yet again, and now women across the globe are getting hooked on surfing bikini tops unlike ever before. The reason is because people, ourselves included, have figured out a way to give women the aesthetic appeal they are after while making sure their tops are optimally functional at the same time.

Surf Bikini Tops by Main Design

Sure, you can go ahead and Google surf bikini tops and find a huge selection to choose from. But chances are, what you will find is either more design and less function, or vice versa. Or, the material used is not exactly the best thing to be putting on your body or eco-friendly. Because we know how important it is to have the best of all worlds, we made our surf bikini tops to target every need and desire you have all in one place. The tops of our eco-friendly collection are made out of 78% Econyl® and in addition, we give our best to reduce the amount of plastic everywhere possible. For example by avoiding plastic in our packaging materials and only using recycled paper bags. Other benefits from choosing our line include:

  • High-quality fabrics that promote seamless feels and complete comfort;
  • Minimal chance of tops slipping, no matter what rigorous sport you are taking on;
  • The ties in the back are fully adjustable, tightening or loosening to custom fit to your body;
  • There is a vast array of beautiful, flirty designs, so you do not have to forfeit style for function.

Additional Things You Should Be Aware Of

If you have already decided that a surf bikini is your next investment for a better water adventure experience, then that is great! Though every top we have can fulfill your needs, here are some things you should keep in mind when it comes to what to look for in quality surf bikini tops.

  • Look for bikini tops that can evenly distribute the weight of your breasts, your back, and your shoulders, all while holding everything in firmly.
  • Look for crop top styles with decent sized straps as they offer great coverage and prevent you from falling out.
  • Fun tip: cross back, crop top style bikini tops are recommended for those who are bigger chested, but have a smaller rib cage.
  • Avoid underwires. For surfers especially, that underwire can really dig into your ribs as you paddle out. Get rid of the red, raw aftermath and steer clear of those.


For an avid surfer, nothing beats surfing in a bikini. It gives you the feeling of the ultimate freedom, allowing the sun and waves to touch your skin with no restrictions. So, when it comes to function, and wearing a bikini, choose something that can accommodate both.

Sure, you can go surfing, or take on any kind of water sport that you love, and do so in a cute little bandeau-bikini or a string one. You will probably look great doing so as well. But if you are not a pro or even a semi-pro, your next wave wipeout could send your bikini floating away out to sea. Save yourself the risk and hassle of that scenario and invest in a reliable, and equally attractive surf top instead. We promise that you will have the ultimate comfort, assurance, and worry-free confidence that your suit will play its role so you can focus on the activity that you love without distractions.
