Selecting a bikini can be overwhelming with so many options to choose from. From halters to high-neck styles and more sporty silhouettes, these days you’ll find no shortage of swimsuit tops. While trends come and go, you want something that will flatter your figure and look stylish while you’re sunbathing or splashing in the surf. Moreover, you want a swimsuit top that you’ll be able to wear over and over for many swim seasons to come. Enter: the triangle bikini top.
Like the LBD of the swim world, a triangle bikini top is a classic and timeless swimwear staple that will never go out of style. With its sleek and simple silhouette, a triangle top will always be an essential piece in your swimwear wardrobe. Plus, when you’re planning a day in the sun and don’t want any out-of-the-ordinary tan lines, a triangle top will be your go-to.
If you’re looking for proof of the triangle top’s longevity, you can look all the way back to 1946 when the bikini was created by Louis Réard. That two-piece bathing suit, modeled and photographed in Paris, was the first of its kind to feature such a minimal design that it revealed the wearer’s navel! From that iconic suit was born what is now a classic style that has stood the test of time and still remains in-demand and fashionable to this day: the triangle bikini top.
But how can you take something that’s been around for over 80 years and make it fresh and new? Our VENUS collection of triangle tops will show you how. Let’s get started!
Versatility is key at VENUS, and we want you to get the most wear possible out of every item you own. This includes your swimwear. For this reason, all of our two-piece bathing suits are sold as separates. This means that you can buy a top and bottom separately to suit your individual sizing needs and your style wants.
Each season our VENUS core swimwear collection is available in a range of at least nine gorgeous solid colors. We recommend you first choose your most flattering, perfect-fitting suit and then select your favorite color. We love the idea of building a swim wardrobe full of compatible pieces that you can mix and match to create your own unique swim look.
Start with the basics, like a classic black triangle top. No matter the place or the occasion, you’re guaranteed to look chic. This little black bikini top can be paired with matching black bottoms or you can mix it with a bright bottom for a fun pop of color. See where we’re going with this? Keep adding more prints and colors to your collection of triangle bikini tops and bottoms and soon you’ll have endless options for your next beach day.

When it comes to construction, some women prefer a minimal look while others prefer more padding and support to enhance their bust. Our VENUS swim collection features both padded triangle tops and those that offer a more natural look.
Our Triangle String Bikini is the quintessential triangle bikini top. If you’re looking for a simple, more minimal look this is the top for you. While this style comes with thin, molded cups for comfort and an added layer of discretion, these can be removed if you’d prefer just the look of fabric with no padding at all. And like the name says, this style has thin spaghetti string straps that tie behind the neck and back. This string underneath the bust makes it possible to adjust the coverage of the triangle cups to reveal more or less cleavage, depending on the look you’re going for.
If you’re at the other end of the spectrum and prefer a padded style for lift, support and enhancement, then you’ll love our Enhancer Push Up Ring Halter Triangle Top. This style has the look of a classic triangle top, but inside the cups are molded push-up pads that give you extra oomph. Plus, underneath the cups is an elastic band that provides extra support and lift, similar to an underwire but with greater comfort.
Regardless of whether you choose a string bikini top or a padded push-up triangle top, our VENUS collection features standout designs that make this classic silhouette feel brand new. This season choose bold animal prints, like hot pink leopard or aqua-hued snakeskin. Or try a fun mixed-print triangle top that combines vibrant florals and wild leopard print. If you’re going for a sophisticated look, try trending hardware details like cool metallic grommets and belted straps. Want something more statement-making? Reach for a metallic triangle top or one decked out in sparkling sequins.
With so many triangle tops to choose from, you’re destined to find the perfect match for every pool day and vacay on the horizon.
