The upside down bikini trend is back

Summer may still seem an extremely long way off, but there’s already a bizarre swimwear trend on the horizon as it appears the upside down bikini look is back.

Celebrities, influencers and bloggers fortunate enough to catch some sun have embraced the style which sees them wear their tops the wrong way round in a bid to showcase more underboob.

Leading the way is Kourtney Kardashian, who first wore an upside down bikini by European brand Sommer Swim, quickly followed by her sister Kylie Jenner.

Kylie donned a skimpy blue two-piece that scarcely contained her ample assets, while her sibling opted for a red version during their trip to Turks and Caicos this month.

But keeping ahead of the trends, their sister Kendall Jenner also sported a tiny paisley Sommer Swim bikini in March 2020 during a Bahamas beach break. 

Australian influencer Tammy Hembrow divided her fans when she opted for an upside down bikini, with some saying the risqué style looked ‘too tight’ and should just be worn ‘correctly’.

British influencers including Natalya Wright and Ellie Brown also donned similar styles when escaping the UK to enjoy an autumn and winter break in sunnier destinations such as Dubai.

Natalya sported a white upside down bikini, teamed with a golden chain in an Instagram post in October 2020. She showcased her washboard abs as she slipped out of the water and onto the side of the pool, which looked over the Burj Khalifa. 

Meanwhile in December, Love Island 2018 star Ellie Brown showed off her incredible curves in a mint green bikini as she reclined in a pool in Dubai.

Celebrity stylist Rochelle White told FEMAIL that the trend, which was first seen across social media in 2018, might be popular again because it’s a good way to be sustainable and change the look of your bikini without buying a new one.

It also enhances a woman’s underboob and highlights their assets in a ‘different way’, she explained. 

‘I think this look is being hyped thanks to being seen on the Kardashians, various models and influencers and of course social media’, said Rochelle. 

‘It has been a trend that has been creeping in, I feel, since summer 2020. I feel that women want to enhance and show off more underboob and it provides a different way or look to your bikini.

‘Some people could rock the same bikini but in a different style, it works well as a cost saving and sustainability item, which a lot of people are wanting to do and be part of.’

The bizarre trend, which involves tying a string bikini around your breasts, was first paraded by 27-year-old model and blogger Valentina Fradegrada in 2018.

The stunner shared a snap of herself modelling a black PVC number in Nevada, seductively pulling at the side of her bottoms with her thumb.

Unlike the traditional triangle bikini top the suit leaves a gaping hole in the middle of your chest - highlighting more cleavage than usual - and also boasts ruching at the top of the triangular cup rather than at the base. Pictured, an Australian-based model wearing the style

Several brands across the world offer the swimwear as part of their spring/summer collections, however an 'upside down' bikini can be created with most of the tops already in your wardrobe. Pictured, an Australian-based influencer in the look

Several brands across the world offer the swimwear as part of their spring/summer collections, however an ‘upside down’ bikini can be created with most of the tops already in your wardrobe.

The wearer simply ties a knot at the top of their chest with the halter straps and separates the ‘triangle’ portion of the material more than usual.

The only issue is that the bust is the only thing holding the bikini together since it isn’t supported by the straps if you’re making the style yourself.
