Upside-down bikinis: Where to shop Love Island’s favourite bikini trend

Love Island and Kendall Jenner-approved 👏

best upside down bikinis

by Marina Avraam |

We've seen everything from three-piece bikinis, crocs and fish flops roaming around the Love Island villa - but have you spotted this year's Islander's favourite bikini trend? Blink and you might miss it, this year's most beloved swimwear trend is the one and only: upside-down bikini.

If you're wondering what exactly an upside-down bikini is, it's precisely what it sounds like. Just imagine any regular triangle bikini turned upside down to create a completely different style. Bombshell Antigoni Buxton made her debut in a gorgeous blue upside-down bikini - and tbh, we haven't stopped thinking about it since.

It's safe to say that at first glance, viewers were a little confused with Antigoni's look, with Tweets such as: "Is Antigoni’s bikini top upside down or is it just me?" and “Am I tripping or does Antigoni 100 per cent have her bikini on upside down?" floating around the internet.

Antigoni was sure to defend her controversial style choice, saying: “It gives the opportunity to show a bit of cheeky underboob. A bit of underboob with a bit of a tan line looks kind of hot.” We couldn't agree more, babes.

Outside the Love Island villa, upside-down bikinis have also been spotted on the Kar-Jenner crew. Kendall was spotted flaunting this yellow upside-down bikini just last week, and Kylie's bestie Stas was also seen wearing a green upside-down bikini while on holiday. IT-girl approved? Say no more.

Although you can recreate the look by simply turning your bikini upside down, many brands are designing bikinis with extra long ties to emulate the look of an upside-down bikini without worrying that you might accidentally show more than you, ahem, bargained for.

So, if you're vibing with this Love Island-endorsed style, start shopping the best upside-down bikinis below.
