String Bikini Bottoms



Summer is just around the corner, and with that comes swimsuit season. This year, we're spotting the rise of string bikinis on the market. Including brands like Sommer Swim and Bamba Swim, the coolest labels are designing fresh versions of the itty-bitty bikini. Celebrities, models, and the fashion crowd are already endorsing the barely there swim trend. Whether it's in a mirror selfie (we're looking at you, Bella Hadid) or an epic beach photo, string bikinis are definitely the number one swimsuit style celebs are Instagramming.
