What Is the Upside-Down Bikini Trend?
The sudden popularity of the upside-down bikini trend can be traced back to the Kardashians, particularly Kendall Jenner, who posted photos of her inverted bikini moments while on vacation back in March 2020. Soon after, her sisters, from Kourtney Kardashian to Kylie Jenner, caught on and posted their own spin on the swimsuit trend. It didn't take long for other influencers to follow suit. In fact, the most recent international celeb to hop on the bandwagon was Hailey Bieber in her bright orange number.
Since the trend surfaced online, there's been a sudden demand for upside-down bikini tops, which explains why swimsuit brands have started coming up with their own versions. So don't be surprised in case you spot inverted bikini tops while shopping in the swimwear section. Chances are, that's totally intentional!
