If you’re struggling to find a sustainable swimsuit to wear this summer, you might be looking in the wrong place. Instead of browsing online for a new option, utilize what you already have with these viral TikTok bikini hacks that turn bikini bottoms into cute new tops in seconds.

After Evelyn Cruz of @evelyncruzblog started sharing her bikini hacks, the videos instantly started taking off. Other creators started sharing their own bikini transformations, garnering millions of views per video. While the hacks are simple, they prove all you need is a little creativity to create an eco-friendly wardrobe you love.

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 Try This 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.
