Chrissy Teigen Discovered the Swimsuit Style Hack for Looking Perfect

Two weeks ago was Chrissy Teigen’s first time in a two-piece swimsuit in a “long, long time.” We know this not because we’ve been keeping tabs, but because Teigen herself said so in the caption of a mirror selfie posted to Instagram. In it, her legs are long, her suit is cute, and her sleeves are puffed. And so, the first bikini she wore in a long, long time more closely resembled a prairie dress then it did an actual bikini.

Teigen is clearly a fan of the newly popular swimsuit style. A couple days later, she wore a different suit that looked nearly identical. Just like the one that marked her first day back in a two-piece, her Leslie Amon bikini has a top that knots in the middle with small puffed sleeves that cover the shoulders. In the IG bikini selfie video, an art form Jennifer Lopez has also dabbled in, Teigen whispers, “This is a video but I can’t move because I’m trying to look curvy.” 

Teigen accomplished her goal, of course, and she looked incredible. John Legend commented with not one, but five heart-eye emoji, though the look definitely deserved at least 10. And while Chrissy Teigen being Chrissy Teigen is the main reason she looks so perfect both in her post and all the time, her new favorite two-piece trend is a close second. 

Not only do puff-sleeve bikinis accentuate your curves, as Teigen demonstrates, but they also transcend seasons. Since the style involves sleeves, the bikini top can easily be worn as a crop top throughout the spring and summer and layered over a turtleneck for the fall and winter, if you’re willing to get creative. It’s also the perfect swimsuit for quarantine because it presents as a summery top when seen from the waist up. This is all to say that since beach vacations are out of the question for now, this bikini trend will surely be a hit on Zoom.
