For nine months of the year it’s considered socially unacceptable to walk around in public in our underwear. Then summer hits and if it’s made out of lycra, it’s an exception to the rule.

More figure-hugging than most apparel, swimsuits are designed in a diverse range of cuts and styles to suit all shapes and sizes but one that seems to be flattering on just about everyone is the ‘cheeky bum’.

Born on the beaches of Brazil, minimal coverage bottoms are now a popular sight (particularly for men!) all across the globe; and for good reason. This sexy, high-cut design perfectly frames the buttocks for an ultra feminine, flattering style.

Leaning on the side of conservative or simply feel like your days of mooning have come and gone? Don’t throw in (or on) the towel just yet, why not give the cheek-show one more go by adding one of these cheeky bum bikinis to your collection.

Shop our five favourite cheeky bikini bottoms

FELLA Otis, cheeky swimwear

 Shop → Fella Swim Otis Bottom $55.00

The Otis bottom is the little black dress of swimsuits – classical yet seductive, and always in fashion. Thin-bonded sides and minimal coverage over the tush make it ideal for tanning. Choose from Fella Swim’s range of tops or mismatch with one of your own. This is an essential summer staple.

 Beach Riot

 Shop → Beach Riot Burke Bottom $44.00

We love this vibrant orange bikini bottom! Slightly cheekier than most, this cut is super flattering (thanks to the ruched bum) and surprisingly comfortable.

Mikoh

Shop → Mikoh Hanalei Cutout Printed Bikini Briefs $167.00

Mikoh swimwear boasts beautiful patterns and breathtaking designs. We’re obsessed with this leaf print and knotted cutout sides. Think cocktails, pool parties and salty hair.

Cheeky swim

 Shop → Cheeky Swim Lovers Frill $39.00

We can’t get enough of Mimi Elashiry’s new range of swimwear, Cheeky Swim. The whimsical design of the Lovers Frill bottoms will have you feeling pretty poolside. Made from crochet with a frill overlay, this bikini provides just enough cover-up for the perfect cheek-peep. Available in blue and cream and exclusive to Glue store, we have a feeling these boho-bottoms will be scooped up quickly.

SUGAR BIKINI

Shop → All That Remains Sugar $149.00 (for set)

All That Remains crochet bikinis can only be described as groovy. Taking us back to the 70’s with the tri-colour diamond design, these are a unique addition to every girl’s bikini closet. Our favourite colour-way is the rose, navy and tumeric.
