'Tis the season for wearing as little clothing as humanly possible, especially in L.A., where the temperatures can get up to the dry hundreds. It also happens to be the place where most celebrities live and can be found running around the beaches of Malibu or taking selfies on their tropical weekend getaways. Each year, celeb swimwear trends seem to be getting (quite literally) smaller and smaller. It's now almost a competition of who can show the most skin in 2019. From cutout cleavage and underwire bra tops to the rather controversial loincloth bikini trend, there are a few notable trends permeating the A-list set.
If you dare to bare like Hailey, EmRata, and basically the entire Kardashian-Jenner squad, you too can shop these bikini trends. Caution: Wave-hitting wardrobe malfunctions come with the territory. But hey—at least you won’t have to worry about paparazzi secretly snapping you. Scroll below to see and shop the most daring bikini trends that celebs are wearing in 2019.
Gabrielle Union, Kylie Jenner, and Kourtney Kardashian are all on board with the loincloth swim trend. We first spotted the trend emerging last summer, and it's not showing any signs of slowing down.
The center cutout is another trend that seems to be gaining steam. Ashley Graham sported the revealing style while vacationing in Tulum.
The Micro Thong
Jasmine Sanders knows how to wear a bikini, so you can bet we're all taking notes. The newly appointed Sports Illustrated model wore the tiniest G-string swim bottoms with the utmost ease and confidence.
Side-Boob Square Top
We've been raving about square-neck swim for weeks now. Are you reading our swim trend reports, Bella Thorne?
Cutout Tube Top
Not only is Demi Lovato's suit perfect for avoiding tan lines from straps, but it's also affordable. Shop her exact suit and similar options below.
Emily Ratajkowski is taking the string in string bikini to a whole new level here. Her wrap-around bikini is from her swim line she's constantly wearing, Inamorata.
Classic Triangle Gone Neon Snake Print
New swim top trends continue to pop up each season, but the good old-fashion triangle string bikini is something that will always be in style. We found a similar version to Hailey Bieber's neon snake-print version below.
Nothin' But Net
For a totally different take on the string bikini, Olivia Culpo chose Indah's woven suit for a day at the pool. Shop the style in blue, which conveniently happens to be on sale.
Exposed Underwire Bra Top
One of my favorite daring celeb bikini trends is the underwire bra top. It's a trendy style we've been seeing a ton of and offers plenty of support. Victoria's Secret model Elsa Hosk wears a more classic version of the trend below.
