If you’ve been seeing flossy, string bikinis tied upside-down, sideways, and crisscrossed all over TikTok and Instagram for the past two summers, you’re not alone. They’re everywhere — on the likes of celebs (see: Kylie Jenner, Lizzo) and your favorite swimsuit brands (Good American, Riot, Sommer Swim). For those undeterred by a swimsuit trend made primarily for dry land or a leisurely swim in the pool, you really only need an adjustable string bikini top. From there, flip your suit upside down and tie the chest straps around your neck, and the neck straps around your chest. Adjust accordingly. Take it a step further by crisscrossing the straps that go around your neck before tying them in the back, or even further, by making the top strapless. For the latter, take the crisscrossed straps from the last step, loop them around your chest (under your arms), and tie them in the back. Goodbye pesky tan lines, hello Instagram fame.

If you’ve been circulating between bandeaus and undercup bikinis for the last few years like many of us have, you may not have a standard string bikini top lying around. Because of that, we rounded up 17 styles that are perfect to get in on the upside-down bikini trend, ahead.
