Why do women buy only the top or bottom of a bikini?

Why have only the top or just the bottoms when you can buy a matching set? How do you even wear it separately? A bikini top with shorts? A bikini bottom with a t-shirt? Now your bra or underwear don't match. I just don't get it.

I mostly buy tops I like that look good with shorts, don't need the set

[@1090348,Lexiluv] I’ve always wondered this but this is a good reason.

Two different sizes. Some women are big on top and need to buy separate sizes instead of a matching set.

In Europe lots of women wear the bottoms and no top.

Bikini tops for regular everyday shorts

Just like with people not wearing identical prints on their shirts & shorts some folks like different looks in their bathing suits. Just a different style is all.

OMG! Mix and match-. My last Hawaiian bottoms with skirt are this year's mini skirt, the red from 2016 still tops shorts when it's over 100 degrees... Mix and match!

Maybe they’re going to a topless beach. Or a bottomless beach🤨

I'm very picky of the bikinis I buy I like the boy short shorts bottoms with the traiangle bikini tops or the mini tube top style tops.even though I have way more skimmer bikinis I have bought in the past but I like to have mine match.
🤣 I always thought they were sold separately so you could get the right size top and bottom. 🤔
Otherwise I'll jump in and the bottom will float away...

[@1205075,StickyToffeePudding] you would think it was that way but then after some have sold its near impossible to find a matching top or bottom.
[@668319,morrgin] I expect some sizes are more popular than others.
Hope you find a pair soon! 🤞🏻

You can mix and match. A patterned top with a solid bottom or the other way around. It’s also nice if you wear different sizes, maybe you’re a smaller size for the bottom and a larger size for the top. 😊

I have no idea, then again I have long ago come to the conclusion that I know nothing about women

They probably have tops or bottoms from other sets and do mix and match.

Sometimes one part has a better style than the other.

I buy the bikini.Then I can wear both together,the top with shorts,the bottoms with just pasties over my nipples or just leave my breasts bare.
