5 Swimsuit Trends That Are Everywhere on Instagram

Summer is finally here (enjoy it while it lasts). For some people however, summer can be nerve-wracking. First of all, you shouldn’t feel ashamed of your body because we are all different. You only get one body, so as long as it’s healthy it’s all that matters. Still, it can be difficult wearing next to nothing in front of strangers when you don’t feel comfortable in your own skin.

Let’s be honest you’re probably wearing the same comfy swimsuit you bought for that holiday in Spain five years ago. However after reading this you might want to upgrade. We’ve curated a list of swimsuits that are everywhere on Instagram that you can feel comfortable in…

The Colour Block One Piece Trend

The one-piece trend has been back on trend for a while now. But, what is new this year is the colour blocking and the shapes that come with it.  No one wants to wear a black one-piece that looks like you’re part of the Olympics team. The colours make this style a fun option. On the other hand, the one piece is a good alternative if you feel self-conscious. It hides your stomach and your bum, which means it can hide and lift where it’s needed.

The Gingham Trend

When you’re wearing gingham you could almost feel like you’re on a beach in the South of France. The good thing about this trend is that it is made into every style: one piece, high cut, bandeau, bikini. Just pick whatever you prefer. If you would like to hide your bum or your boobs – you could wear gingham either as a top or as a bottom, and then black or white bikini bottoms/tops. That way the focus will be on the pattern piece and not the part you don’t like.

The Bardot Trend

Bardot tops have been back for a while now, and this year bardot swimsuits are everywhere. They look really cute on, especially if they’re pastels and flowers patterns. This shape of swimsuit is a good option for a lot of body types. If you have small boobs, it is a good way to show enhance your features, but also if you want to draw attention towards your upper half and not the bottom half.

The High Cut One Piece

This is the trend you’ve probably seen the most on Instagram. Bella Hadid or Kendall Jenner’s feed is full of this type of swimsuit. In my opinion, it is such a versatile trend. I think it suits all body shapes. If you’ve got short legs and want them to appear longer the cut-out bottom will create the illusion of longer leg. If you’ve got a small bum it will make you look curvier, and on the other hand, if you’ve got a big bum it will enhance your curves.
