Summer 2022 is here which means parties, festivals, beach time, and lots of fun days ahead. It’s also that time of year when everyone is looking for their perfect bikini to show off some skin. We’ve curated a selection of tiny, micro, and even extreme bikinis for this season, that we guarantee will make you look and feel sexy.
Y2K is back and that includes those sparkly micro bikinis that everyone was wearing back in the early 2000s. The updated version is a little bit less sparkly and the colors are less bright, but still, very girly and versatile. You can wear this set to go to the beach, but also, pair it with some flared pants and wear it to a summer party.
Extreme micro bikinis are fun, sexy, and give you a confidence boost. They’re also perfect to avoid those annoying tan lines that other swimwear tends to make. If you’re looking for the perfect look to get the most flawless tan ever, a micro bikini should be your number one choice.
There’s something about adding hardware into the fabric of a bikini that makes it look extremely glam and sexy, like this black and gold chain bikini with an asymmetrical cut. It’s the ideal swimsuit for a day that doesn’t require many activities or movement, like a boat day or one where you lay by the pool enjoying your favorite drink.
This is a very extreme bikini design for a daring fashion girl who likes to show a little skin. Since it’s a very revealing design, we recommend keeping the colors neutral like this black bikini to let the design speak for itself.
5. Orange Cut
Orange looks perfect on tanned skin and this micro bikini is ideal for a summer party or day on the beach.
6. Golden Glam
A good golden bikini never gets old. The tone will always be glamorous and sexy, no matter what, especially if it has unique details, like these rope-like straps or underwiring that flatters your cleavage. This top can also be worn for a night out, matching it with a black blazer and black or white bottoms.
Who said metallic tones weren’t allowed for summer? They stand out from the rest of the bright colors and can look super sexy on the beach, even more so if it’s a tiny extreme bikini like the one above.
It’s like wearing two bikinis at the same time! This is a very one-of-a-kind design that flatters your body and also gives you enough support to swim and do beach activities.
9. ’90s Print
Tropical print bikinis in neon colors were very popular at the end of the ’80s and during the ’90s, and now there’s a 2022 version of that style. If you’re the kind of person that likes to have fun with prints and colors, this one is perfect for your summer plans.
10. Brown Never Goes Out of Style
Triangle-shaped bikini tops are a summer staple and this brown micro bikini with a high leg, cut and a cheeky back will turn heads this summer.
11. Animal Print
No matter what year or season we’re in, animal print will always be playful, sexy, and fun — even more so if it’s printed on an extreme bikini. Since the print is already visually captivating, we recommend keeping the rest of the look simple, with small accessories and natural makeup.
12. High Rise
High-rise bikinis are extremely flattering for almost every body shape and size since they make your legs look super long. If you want a sexy yet classy look, try going for high-rise bikinis with square neck tops in light colors like this blue number.
