If you’re struggling to find a swimsuit to wear this summer, you might be looking in the wrong place. Instead of browsing online for a new option, try one of these viral TikTok bikini hacks that turn bikini bottoms into cute new tops in seconds.
Earlier this year, Evelyn Cruz of @evelyncruzblogger started sharing her bikini hacks. Since then, the trend has really taken off: Now other creators are garnering millions of views on their videos, too.
From transforming a single bikini bottom into a one-shoulder top to turning two bottoms into a criss-cross option, these are the bikini hacks to learn before summer.
5 Bikini Hacks to Learn Before Summer
1. The Criss-Cross Method
Jordyn, the influencer behind @jmegss, has a process that looks a little complicated at first. But with her simple instructions, transforming two bikini bottoms into a top is a breeze. She says to start with one bikini bottom and turn it so it forms a 90-degree angle. Pull your arms through, adjust to the right, and repeat with the other bottom.
2. The One-Shoulder Method
For this hack, start with the back of the bikini facing away from you. Put both arms through the leg holes, then put your head through the same hole as one of your arms. Adjust, and you’ll have a one-shoulder bikini top.
3. The Knot Method
To use the knot method, simply untie the strings holding together the sides of a bikini bottom. Then tie a knot in the middle. Tie the strings around your neck and back, just as you would with a regular bikini top.
4. The String Method
Start by grabbing two string bikini bottoms. Make sure both sides are tied into bows. Put your arm through and situate it so it goes across your body. One bow should be on your shoulder, and one should be on your back. Repeat on the opposite side.
5. The Swoop Method
Last but not least, we have the swoop method. Start with a single bikini bottom. Put both arms through both leg holes. Slide it down so one part is under your arms and across your back. Then, loop the other part over your head.
