The 8 Most Popular Swimsuits Right Now, According to Instagram

This year's swimwear trends are as ever quite a mixed bag, with everything from neutral crinkle bandeaus to acid-green snake string micro bikinis causing a spike in sales. If your Instagram feed is anything like mine this month, then you will agree we have well and truly hit out-of-office season, and there are certain swimsuits, in particular, that I see just as much as Aperol spritz selfies and infinity pool–scapes.

On the high street, ASOS, Warehouse and & Other Stories have created popular bikinis for under £60. If you are happy to spend a little more, however, Rixo has launched vintage-style swimwear that isn't like anything currently available elsewhere, and Solid and Striped's yellow retro floral print is one of the most feel-good bikinis I've seen so far this summer. Nostalgic prints are proving really popular for swimwear this year across all price points, with lime-green checks, jolly florals and colourful plaids that any '90s kid probably wore under the age of 10 appearing again and again. As for silhouettes, there isn't one trending shape—high-waisted bottoms, scoop-leg briefs, bandeaus, string tops and crop tops all feature in the list below.

Keep scrolling to shop the eight swimsuits in particular that are gaining the most traction on Instagram this summer.
