Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner Are Bringing Back Thong Bikinis

Skimpy swimwear is making a comeback

According to models Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid, the less covered up you are, the better. This is the mantra that they're following on their current holiday trip, anyway.

In a series of sizzling Instagram pictures, both stars showcased their toned bodies in some skimpy, thong bikinis. Could this be the return of high-rise, revealing bottoms? We think so.

While holidaying in a secret tropical location, Bella posed in a white Brazilian bikini, which featured a 1980s style thong and extremely scooped back design.

Meanwhile, Kendall was pictured wearing an olive thong bikini by Montce, which retails at £107.

Friend and fellow Instagram star Hailey Baldwin was also on the trip, and posted a snap of herself in a revealing neon pink bikini. These thong-shaped bikinis aim to emphasise curves and create the illusion of a fuller bottom, which may be the reason why so many celebrities and bloggers wear them.

Often called 'itsy-bitsy bikinis', the barely-there style associated with this swimwear is reminiscent of the 1980s, which featured high cut designs and thong swimsuits.

It's likely that the rise in popularity of this swimwear is partially due to social media, but it could also be down to the fact that a thong bikini just generally makes your derrière look a bit more pert!
