A New “Revealing” Trend
Several stars have already joined the trend, including Brazilian beauty Bruna Mraquezine and Kendal Jenner. The styling trick transforms the bottom of the bikini, leaving the pleated parts of the piece in the center instead of the side.
Leading the way is Aussie influencer Tammy Hembrow who recently uploaded a photo of herself poolside, wearing a pink Dior bikini. While the swimsuit was of the traditional bikini style, she took the unusual step of wearing the top upside down, showcasing a lot of the under-boob.
The New Bikini Trend In 2021?
It is surely a risky style. The trend didn’t go unnoticed by Hembrow’s followers. Many of them jumped in the comments to let her know that her top was the wrong way around. Meanwhile, others expressed disbelief in the trend. They asked how this was practical, but Hembrow wasn’t bothered by the reaction of her followers.
The upside-down bikini trend first surfaced on Instagram in 2018. Back then, various models tied both strings of their triangle tops around the middle so they could create a strapless look that boosted their cleavage.
Originally started by Valentina Fradegrada, an Italian model, the trend works by tying the halter neck straps across the chest. This pulls the triangle material further apart than usual and helps reveal and enhance more underboob than ever before.
It’s not the first bikini trend that Hembrow embraced, with her famous figure in a “naked” swimsuit last year. Last September Hembrow shared two photos of herself in the Minimale Animale splendor suit, in which at first glance, she looked like she was naked. The famous design features just a string at the back but there are patches at the front to protect the wearer’s modesty.
