According to Elle Magazine it’s been dubbed the ‘loincloth bikini trend.’ Stick with us because the name isn’t so flattering but the bikini style certainly is!
You might be thinking of Brooke Shields in the 1980 film Blue Lagoon and you’re on the right track. The loincloth bikini trend in modern day is a high cut drawstring bikini bottom. The drawstring bottom gives you so much versatility, not to mention reduced tan lines if desired.
The second benefit of the loincloth bikini trend of 2018 is the ability to pull the sides up for a high rise fit. This elongates the leg for a flattering bikini fit. And given that we won’t be in heels on the beach we’ll take what we can get (unless you’re doing the Barbie heel).
From IT girls and models Bella Hadid and Elsa Hosk, Kendall and Emily Ratajkowski, everyone is sporting a high cut bikini bottom.
