It’s officially bikini season, which means it’s high time to shop for the perfect booty-baring swimsuit. Enter: the cheeky bikini. Not to be confused with the thong bikini, which is also a wildly popular swim style this summer, the saucy design is another celeb swimwear go-to. Unlike its skimpier sister, cheeky bikini bottoms offer a bit more coverage while still effectively flaunting your bum.

Kim Kardashian and Lizzo — both bikini connoisseurs in their own right — have rocked the spicy bikini design. They even reached for similar pink iterations on their respective getaways, both serving major Barbie vibes.

Kim’s little sis, Kendall Jenner, has also taken to the revealing style. She wore a minimalist pair in black and styled it to perfection, layering it under a sheer dress and merchandised another set with a baseball cap at a Cannes beach.

Another fan of the style is pop star Dua Lipa. After rocking several pairs herself on enviable excursions, she released her own cheeky bikini design — bedecked in crystals, no less — as part of her collaboration collection with Versace.

As 2023 continues to make its mark as the year of skin, here are 10 of the best cheeky bikinis to add to your summer rotation. Ready those “sun’s out, buns out” Instagram captions.


Nothing screams summer getaway quite like a fruit print bikini set. This bright yellow suit from Seafolly enveloped in pineapples calls to mind idyllic vacations and refreshing piña coladas.


This rainbow-hued snakeskin set doesn’t need more eye-catching details, but it delivers nonetheless. Slinky, V-string straps give the illusion of the saucy lingerie style.


For a fresh spin on the traditional solid-colored bikini, this two-piece set comes stylishly mismatched. The adorable bottoms are high-cut and skimpy, while the corset-style top is extra strappy and adjustable.


Animal prints effortlessly add pizzazz to any outfit, beachside or not. For a standout look, consider rocking zebra stripes.


You’re guaranteed to look like a work of art in any of Farai London’s bikini sets — especially, since the brand is known for its abstract prints. Let the print shine in a simple bandeau top and cheeky bottoms.


Adjustable bikinis are always a good idea. Depending on your mood, this pair from Zonarch can sway as cheeky or as covered as you’d like — just slide the knots for your perfect fit. It comes in solid hues (like black, pink, and lavender), as well as prints like stripes and paisley.


Unleash your inner Barbie girl in these cheeky bottoms from SKIMS. Kim Kardashian herself rocked these not long ago, so you know it’s gram-worthy.


From one Kardashian to another, Khloé’s label Good American also offers a ton of size-inclusive booty-baring options, including this slinky pair made with the trendy crinkly texture. Even Lizzo is a fan of this one.


For a one-of-a-kind look, consider hand-dyed bikinis made in small batches, like this vibrant sunset-inspired pair from Natasha Tonic. It’s booty-baring and, with the use of low-impact dyes, it’s also environmentally-friendly.


Don’t be fooled by this pistachio-hued suit’s high-waist style. It will display your backside in all its cheeky glory, while also giving your belly generous coverage. A perfect combination.
