What is a smocked bikini?

A smocked bikini is a type of swimsuit that features smocking, which is a type of gathered or pleated fabric that is stretched and secured in place to create a stretchy, elasticized effect. Smocked bikinis typically have a fitted, stretchy top and bottom that are made from a stretchy, moisture-wicking fabric such as nylon or spandex. They may also have adjustable straps or ties to help customize the fit. Smocked bikinis can come in a variety of styles, such as bandeau, triangle, or halter, and can be found in a range of colors and patterns. They are a popular choice for swimwear because of their comfortable fit and stylish appearance.
