8 Best Swimwear Trends For 2018

If you not sure about which bikini you should choose, then it may be a good idea to read on as this article was written with you in mind. Here are swimwear trends for 2018 you should know about:


This trend has become very common as many people have decided to live a healthy life and exercise more often. In the past, sportive styles were popular among tomboys and surf babes.

However, this has changed as even celebrities like Rihanna and Beyonce wear long sleeve rash guards on the beach. I have even heard that there are people who wear these sportive tops to the gym. Well, I will just keep it to surfing or paddle boarding.


Last week I wrote about cut-out one pieces and explained why this style is ideal for everyone. However, I would like to remind you that apart from trending in one piece, cut out holes are also popular in bikini tops and bottoms. This is why cutouts are among the swimwear trends for 2018 and brands such as Seafolly, in the UK, have various different styles to suit everybody.

The best thing about cut-outs is that it is up to you to decide how much skin you want to show and allow you to decide a point that will feel comfortable. This style is among the styles to consider this summer.

Crop tops

Despite the fact that crop tops are not ideal for a good tan session, they help their wearers show their own personal style. There are people who think crop tops are only available in sportive styles but that is not true.

Choose one with mesh or macramé-panelling. If you decide to choose a crop top halter style bikini, then it may be a good idea to go for one with a low rise bottom. Otherwise, your torso will end up looking very short.


Are we done with crochet bikinis, or are we still loving them? Well, whether you love them or hate them, most brands out there have made some updates to crochet styles! It is a good idea to wear a crochet bikini that has a modern twist. You can achieve this by looking for a bikini that combines crotchet panelling with other types of material.

Not so obvious material

Do you want to wear a unique swimwear? If the answer is a big yes, then look for not so obvious fabrics such as metallic, denim or velvet. Isn’t it something different? No need to worry as you can swim in the materials we just mentioned and I can assure you that the quality will last long. Even though some styles are better when it comes to tanning, you should remember that we don’t have to be in the water every day.

Macramé-panelled swimwear

A twist on the crotchet trend and in most cases applied to the back or top of the piece. It is fun and flirty and also great to wear outside of the beach. Shorts, slippers, let’s go!

Strapless one pieces

My loyal readers noticed that strapless one-pieces were a hot topic a couple of weeks ago on my blog. This was not without reason. These types of one piece aren’t only ideal for curvy ladies or new moms. They are also ideal for those with tall, slim bodies. Those with bigger breasts should look for a one piece that has an underwire as this keeps everything in place.

Wrap bikini tops

These tops have to be among the swimwear trends for 2018. This trend has several variations including the front cross wrap and the wider and thinner wraps in the tops. Thinner straps are ideal for those who have small breasts while wider straps are ideal for those with large breasts.

As you can see there are many styles to choose from when it comes to best swimwear trends for 2018. Some of them are new while others have been in the market for some time and loved by many people. Either way, there is something for everyone.
