If there’s one thing we can glean from stylish A-listers, it’s that skin is definitely in. And in the world of swimwear, that looks like thong bikinis, underboob cutouts, and other revealing styles. These cheeky styles aside, no suit is as skin-forward as the micro bikini.

Big proponents of the itty-bitty suits are the members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, who often share snaps of their barely-there sets (two of them have their own swimwear lines, so it’s not a surprise). Kendall Jenner consistently rocks thong and G-string bikinis; meanwhile, Kim Kardashian once famously posed on main in an itty-bitty vintage Chanel bikini, which Jennifer Aniston later wore on the December 2022 cover of Allure.

Fashion supernovas such as Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa are also known to slay the micro style. Hadid has been spotted in butt-baring looks, while Lipa has been known to rock various cheeky styles, including a Hello Kitty-inspired crochet set.

Ready to jump in on the trend? Read on for a selection of micro bikinis to embrace this season and beyond.

This metallic cobalt number by Hailey Bieber-approved brand Alt Swim is perfect for peacocking at the beach this season. It even has a cute li’l star pendant detail giving its wearer main character energy.

Serve a chic little underboob moment, with an upside-down bikini. Plus, with adjustable ruching, you can bunch to achieve your preferred level of coverage (a supermodel-approved styling hack.

Crochet bikinis are coming in hot this season. For a saccharine take on the micro look, this suit with white daisies should do the trick.

For a posh take on the micro trend, this pearl-encrusted set is a no-brainer. With its delectable bubble gum pink colorway, crochet texture, and bow-tied bottoms, this set ticks all the elements of girlhood.

Kim Kardashian, a fan of the micro bikini herself, didn’t hold out on her SKIMS customers. One of the brand’s latest drops includes liquid silver sets with knotty details — all with teeny-tiny fits.

Expose as much skin as your heart desires with this red hot bandeau set that’s completely adjustable. Just slide the ruching along each strap for more or less coverage.

Dua Lipa is a big fan of GCDS’ cartoon-inspired offerings. She previously wore a Hello Kitty swim set and a Patrick Star net dress from the brand. If you, too, are a fan, consider the bikini version of her dress, which is as cheeky as it is nostalgic. (More of a SpongeBob girlie? That’s available too.)

This Amazon reviewer said it best: “Love this G-string style swimsuit! It’s perfect for a spicy swim day at the lake or the beach!!! Great coverage and not see through!”

Micro bikinis aren’t relegated to triangle bras only, though they’re certainly the most common. For an underwire option, consider this cream bra by Tularosa. Save for tiny cups, the rest of the top is essentially string — placing it firmly in the “micro” category.

Lettuce hems are the frilliest swim trend of 2024 and have already taken over the industry. Naturally, the trim can now be found lining the teeniest of bikinis, like this cobalt blue design from Luli Fama.

Itty-bitty bikini? Check. Cute print? Double check. This beauty is a must for summer 2024.

With over 1,600 5-star reviews on Amazon, this top-rated thong bikini is an easy favorite among shoppers.
