Just in time for summer, it seems a new bikini trend is making waves. From Kim Kardashian to Bella Hadid, the “hip cleavage” trend has become popular amongst the most well-known celebs. The trend involves wearing high waisted “v” swimsuits that show off your hips, and it’s safe to say it’s become more and more popular amongst celebs and Instagram bloggers.
High waisted jeans and shorts were popular in the 80s and early 90s, but have recently made a comeback. But it seems like the high waist trend isn’t just coming back in the form of jeans and shorts— it’s also being applied to bikinis.
The trend has been seen on dozens of celebs, and only seems to getting more and more popular. The trend shows off the wearer’s hips and curves and even slims down the waistline.
The bikini bottoms are sometimes referred to as “v bars” and have started to pop up in stores all over. “Not only does it create a flattering shape to the bust area, but it also adds a nice amount of cleavage, without looking too in-your-face,” says stylist Rochelle White, as reported by News AU.
