The Crochet Bikini and Why I’m So Excited About It


I’m not one to jump on the trendy bandwagon as soon as the latest trends are out. Sometimes they have to wash over me for a while before I can appreciate the appeal, or even introduce them to my closet. Those dang high-waisted shorts have just begun penetrating my closet.

This summer, I have had the unfortunate task of finding a new swimsuit. The pressure of having the perfect beach body is daunting enough, but when tasked with finding the perfect suit? When does the pressure stop?

FYI:┬áThe perfect body/bathing suit fit does not exist (but I don’t have to tell you that).

Needless to say, I looked at a lot of bikinis before I discovered a style that I am so excited about. And that is…

The crochet bikini!

I have an extended history with crochet as it dates back to my late grandma trying to teach me how to crochet when I was a bit too young to understand.

I’ve gone back and taught myself the basics, but I have had this inner desire to crochet my own bikini. You can understand my excitement when I discovered I didn’t have to make my own! They are in style now! I’ve even seen these bad girls at target!

The crochet bikini is a gloriously unique style trend that I can get behind. They are perfect for those who like to sport the boho chic style, but classic enough to appeal to the minimalist.

The wide array of shapes, styles, and colors this type of bikini can come in is a huge pot of untapped potential. Its a whole new genre of swim wear, and I am ready for it.
