8 Hot Swimwear Trends for 2018

Let’s talk about trends! Specifically about 2018 swimwear or bikinis online trends! I know all of you ladies out there are searching for a new one piece of bikini, so I thought I should share some of the best trends that I have been seeing on Instagram, on the beach, and in the new swimwear collections. If you still aren’t sure which bikini you should go with, this post can definitely help you.

1. Sportive

With each passing season, we are seeing more sportive swimwear. This trend has become popular since everybody decided they should workout out several times per week and start living a healthy lifestyle. Prior to that, the sportive style was quite popular among tomboys and surfer babe, but now even Rihanna and Beyonce are wearing these long-sleeve items to the beach. I also have heard some women are going to gym wearing sportive tops. I will stick to just surfing or paddle boarding to wear mine.

2. Cut-outs

I posted recently about cut-out pieces and how this is a style that everyone can wear. But I wanted to remind you that not only are cut-outs trending for one piece suits but in bikini tops and bottoms the holes are popular as well. This is why cut-outs are one of the hottest trends in swimwear for 2018. One of the things that I really like about cut-out is that it’s completely up to you decide the amount of skin that you would like to show off and what you are comfortable with. For this summer, it is your go-to style!

3. Crop Tops

I know these aren’t perfect for having a good tanning session. However, with a crop top bikini, you can really show your own personal style off. Some people believe crop tops only come in sportive styles. However, that is simply not true! Select one with macrame-panelling or mesh. Here is one more tip for you, if you are going with a bikini style with a crop top halter, be sure to go with a low rise bottom. If you don’t your torso will appear to be quite short.

4. Crochet

Do we will love crochet bikini, or are they done? Most people love them or hate them, but there have been some updates made by most brands to their classic crochet styles. You still will, of course, want to keep wearing crochet bikinis. However, a modern twist can be added by selecting a bikini combining crochet panelling along with other kinds of material.

5. Out of the ordinary material

Would you like your swimwear to really stand out? If so, go for a fabric that isn’t so obvious such as velvet, metallic or denim! That would definitely be different! Don’t worry, you still will be able to swim in those types of materials and their quality is very durable. Some styles work best just for tanning, but you don’t need to be in the water every single day.

6. Macrame-panelled swimwear

There is a twisted being put on the crochet trend. Usually, it is applied to the back or top. It is flirty and fun and great for wearing places other than the beach.

Many of you have noticed already that strapless one-pieces have become a very hot topic. There is a good reason for this. This kind of one piece isn’t just for curvy ladies or new moms. They also look great on slim, tall bodies as well. If you have larger breasts, make sure your one piece has underwire so that has everything stays in place.

8. Wrap bikini tops

One of the hottest swimwear trends in 2018 is definitely going to be wrap bikini tops! There are also several variations to this trend. Such as the wider and thinner wraps in the tops and front cross wrap. It is recommended that if you have smaller breasts that you wear thinner straps, and if you have larger ones to wear wider straps.

So, there you go. Those are the 8 hottest 2018 swimwear trends. Some we have seen before, some are new, but either way many love them. There is plenty for everyone to choose from.
