If you are a Tik Tok fan, you would have seen many women posting about putting on the Upside Down Bikini. This is a trend where the bikini top is tied upside down.
Several celebrities have already sported this trend namely the Kardashians-Jenner clan and Bruna Marquezine. They have taken to Instagram to show off traditional string bikinis styled in this not-so-traditional way.
Just how to style this new trend? Transform the bottom of the bikini and leave the pleated part of the bikini in the center instead of the side.
The top will have a completely new shape thus making it looks like a different bikini. Cross the bottom strings around the neck and the top strings around the chest before you secure it. You can also criss-cross the strings to switch up the necklines or tie at the center of your chest for a strapless look.
In January, Brazilian actress Bruna Marquezine wore a flipped blue bikini with a belly chain. What is good about this trend is that you are getting multiple bikini styles for the price of one. There is no need to buy anything new to create a new look. All you need to do is to take a look at the string bikinis in your swimwear drawer. The DIY swimsuit trend has people tying their bikini tops upside down, criss-crossed and even sideways.
Before the upside-down bikini trend became famous, there were other styles like the strapless and crisscrossing in the front styles.
The standard upside-down style is most sturdy compared to the earlier ones but the downside is that it is not as comfortable, supportive and practical as wearing it the right side up.
This style also shows off more cleavage. Another con is that it takes a lot of work to wear the upside-down bikini.
Right after the Kardashian / Jenner sisters shared photos of them wearing their upside down bikinis, fashion influencers and fashion lovers have been flipping their own bikini tops upside down and inspired wave of DIY summer fashion. The criss cross straps are like push up bras, offering lift and cleavage while the shape of the bikini top leaves the underboob exposed. A super sexy way of wearing string bikini.
