5 Poses To Try For Your Next Bikini Photos
Nailing the perfect bikini pose is no easy feat. Bikini pics take a great deal of confidence and finding that can be challenging as it is probably the most amount of skin that many of us are willing to show in a public photo. Here is what most social media influencers won’t tell you – there is an art form to posing in your bikini in a way that says I’m confident and I run this beach, or pool, sun chair – wherever. If you’re having trouble figuring out the best way to strike your bikini pose, here are five poses that you can try when taking bikini photos:
1. Lie On Your Tummy
It’s pretty standard for us ladies to feel a bit self-conscious about our mid-section. There is certainly no need to, but if you don’t want to flaunt your frontside, then this pose may be the perfect one for you!
Lie on your tummy, look up, and give a sultry expression to the camera. Not only will this conceal your stomach, but it will also give a plumper look to your busts and help to boost that booty. Improve the look by kicking your feet up with toes pointed. Try also to tilt your head a little so your jawline could look sharper.
Or why not also try taking your bikini photos at an angle or straight from the back to show off those booty gains from all those months of home workouts during quarantine.
2. Lie On Your Side
If you’re feeling yourself and don’t mind showing off your skin (yes queen, get it!), lying on your side is the perfect pose to try. This pose helps create an elongated figure of your body. Prop yourself up using one hand and extend your legs far out. Finish the look by raising your other hand near your head! Not only does this give the camera a full view of your bikini, but this pose helps to elongate every limb – making you appear longer and slimmer.
3. Kneel On Sand Or A Towel
Kneeling on sand or a towel is a classic pose that everyone always likes to do. From models to influencers, this relaxed pose is a go-to position for bikini babes. The reason that it works so well? When executed correctly, this pose has a way of showcasing your best features within the proper dimensions.
The best way to nail it? Make sure that your knees are just a bit wider than your hips when you pose. Revamp your pose by putting your hands on your legs or grabbing the waistbands of your bikini bottoms. Try also to keep your eyes closed while tilting your head a little bit until your face touches the sun's rays!
4. View From The Back
If you have wide hips and curvy bottom cheeks, a peek of your backside is a good idea for taking a bikini picture. This pose is also a good option for those not ready to show their tummies – confidence takes time. This point of view will highlight your figure and will emphasize your butt even more. You can put your hands on the side of your hips or under the cheeks to form a "frame" around your booty to highlight your natural shape. Bonus points if you have a bit of sand on your bum!
5. Hands Up, Feet Pointed
Want a flattering pose that highlights your silhouette? Try raising your hands up with your feet pointed for a bomb look! The pointed feet, or invisible heels, the trick is a go-to for almost every model – fashion or Instagram. Try also to draw your pelvis back a little to shrink your tummy area. This trick will also give you an hourglass figure. Bear in mind to tiptoe before snapping a picture so your legs can look extra toned.
Bonus Tip: Add Some Movement
Posing is a great way to ensure that your body looks exactly how you want it to, but why not add a bit of action to your “candid” snap? Recruit a friend for this pose! Have them snap a bunch of photos, with you as the model, of course, as you are walking out of the ocean or kneeling down into the waves. Not into the sultry, bay-watch stride? No worries! Run out of the water with a gigantic smile on your face! The point is that the pose feels less well-posed. It shows that you really are enjoying your time and feeling confident in your bikini.
