Bandeaus are a popular form of strapless bathing suits that are comprised of fabric that covers the bust area. They come in a variety of variations, shapes, colors, patterns, and fabrics to accommodate different body types. Some may have a thin strap for added support, that can be removed or added while wearing the bathing suit.
