Throughout the years, bikini bottoms have gotten skimpier and skimpier. For a long time, cheeky bikini bottoms were daring and sexy, and while they’re still incredibly popular, nowadays we’re seeing more than a few people sporting a thong bikini bottom on the beach. The thong bikini bottom is exactly what you think it is. Minimal coverage is the name of the game, and it’s great for tan lines and a super sexy silhouette. If you’re feeling bold, these are the 12 styles we’d recommend.
Some pieces are super low-rise, while others have a higher cut, so there’s bound to be a style you’ll love. Plus, if you like printed bottoms, there are plenty of options to choose from as well as styles that are solid, so they can be easily mixed and matched with other tops. Plus, whether you love a sexy side-tie string bikini or one with a more classic bikini-brief shape, there’s a piece you’ll love. This is the summer to be bold on the beach, and nothing says bold quite like a thong. Keep on reading to shop our selects, and happy summer!
