This Bikini Trend Has Officially Become a Swimwear Basic—22 I’m Adding to Cart


It’s a fact that swimwear trends just don’t move as quickly as clothing trends do. Considering summer is really the main season when we pull out our swimwear collections in full, it makes sense that they’d have a longer shelf life. And some more than others, at that. Looking at the swim trends on deck for summer 2022, there’s one style that seems to come back around every time since it first popped up on our radars.

The “trend” in question is underwire bikinis and I put the word trend in quotations because the style has remained so popular and consistently relevant as to completely transcend the cycle of what’s in and what’s out. I’m even going so far as to say that it’s become a new swimwear basic. At least in my closet, underwire bikini tops are outperforming triangle halter tops as my go-to. Not only are they on every shopping site, Instagram feed, and closet I come across, but their supportive and bra-like shape makes them extra wearable. With that, I’m calling it: underwire bikinis are the latest staple swimwear I think everyone needs in their collection.

To see my favorites of the moment and a few styling ideas along the way, just keep reading.
