Kylie Jenner revives upside-down ‘underboob’ bikini craze

Boobs! There it is. Boobs! There it is. 

Now here’s a titillating trend that’ll surely turn those wintertime frowns upside down. 

Thy cups will runneth over with underboob this summer thanks to the revival of the “upside-down bikini” craze that’s got the internet howling for haltered hooters. 

Kylie Jenner and her K-clique kin seem to be responsible for resurrecting the sexy swimwear style that has her and sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner baring more breasts. 

The topsy turvy bikini top trend was first made popular by Italian influencer Valentina Fradegrada in 2018 — the same year it was declared the “worst thing on Instagram.”  But The Post called it early — predicting its pending return to trendy status in summer 2020.

Turning the traditional way to wear a two-piece on its head, the upside-down bikini mania calls for a triangular top to be inverted so that the ruching of the bathing suit — which is usually found underneath the bust line — sits atop the breasts. 

Kylie, 23, stopped timeline traffic when she debuted some utterly bodacious underboob in an electric blue upside-down bikini top on Instagram Friday. 

But it was Kourtney, 41, who set the bottoms-up bikini top swag in motion this season when she fashionably flaunted her funbags on social media in late January. 

Kendall Jenner, 25, also got down with the upside-down design during a beach break in the Bahamas ahead of the pandemic last March. 

Surprisingly, while keeping up with the Kardashians and their fashion-forward flexing is usually all the rage, social media can’t seem to decide whether sporting an upturned bikini by the pool is super cool or just for fools.

UGHHH I can’t wait to wear my bikini top upside down all summer long ✌🏽💕— 👄Doinde Nasty👄 (@NoahBensiSFW) February 6, 2021

International influencers Tammy Hembrow, Natalya Wright and Ellie Brown, have also embraced the flip-flopped look that now has fashion brands such as Sommer Swim, ASOS and PrettyLittleThing incorporating it into their 2021 spring/summer collections. 

Wanna knock their socks off by showing off your knockers like Kylie, Kourtney and Kendall? 

Pro tip: turn your basic bikini top upside down.

Yes, the two-piece you bought at a bargain-basement price in October 2017. Run, go get it from the back of your dresser drawer right now. 

All you have to do is flip the bikini top so that the ruching is at the top of your breasts. The strings that you usually tie together around your back will now be tied together behind your neck, creating the halter-effect. Tie the strings that would normally go around your neck behind your back.

And voilà, mammary glands to the moon!

Word to the wise: This saucy style might be cute for snapping sexy stills for Instagram, but the scantily-clad trend doesn’t offer much in the way of support or long term coverage. 

So, underboob responsibly friends.
