The Controversial Swim Trend I'm So Into Right Now

Sofia Richie White Bikini


FAMA PRESS/Splash News

If I were to write a short list of clothing items that scare me, somewhere after body-con dresses and maybe before uncomfortable shoes and white jeans you’d find white bathing suits. You may have already read about the fact that I don’t particularly love wearing bathing suits in the first place but buy them anyway—now if you take a category that already makes me uncomfortable and choose a white (aka nowhere-to-hide) iteration, I’m downright petrified. It’s kind of how my former co-worker Aemilia feels about another bubbling swim trend.

Nonetheless, you can imagine my confusion when I suddenly noticed how many of my favorites suits were actually white. Maybe seeing so many of them (after all, they are having a moment) was like a form of exposure therapy, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I actually ordered a couple while simultaneously researching stories.

Will I end up channeling my inner Sofia Richie this summer? Only time will tell, but for now, you can shop all the nicest white bikinis and one-pieces I have my eyes on below—and some of which even have shopper reviews to back them up.

If you want to get Sofia’s exact look, this suit is the place to start.

This may or may not be one of the pieces I've already ordered.
