I Used to Hate This Swimsuit Style, But These 29 Bikinis Convinced Me Otherwise

Maybe I have a one-track mind, but every summer, I pick a single swimsuit style and wear it again and again. Last season, I remained dedicated to triangle bikinis until the very last warm day of the year. My pick for this season? Bandeau bikinis because, for the life of me, I can't take another summer of crisscrossing tan lines. 

Until recently, I was an adamant opponent of the strapless swimwear style. Once made up of nothing more than straight-across pieces of fabric, bandeau bikini tops always erred more on the side of boring than beach ready for me. But after perusing literally hundreds of bandeau-style bikinis in anticipation of swimsuit season, I can say with certainty that my former distaste for the tube top of swimwear has flipped on its head. Call me a bandeau bikini's biggest fan.
