It’s no secret that cheeky bikini bottoms are in right now. It’s also no secret that many are wearing a regular-cut bikini bottom and scrunching it up into cheeky territory. A controversy broke out on Twitter recently about the surge of women who are trying to be a part of the cheeky bikini trend by pulling their bottoms up themselves.
Nobody on the Internet seems to be here for the look that might as well be called what it is: a wedgie.
i've seen too many girls wearing regular bikini bottoms and forcing a wedgie to make it look cheeky; JUST BUY CHEEKY BIKINI BOTTOMS!!

PSA: shoving your bikini bottoms up your butt doesn't make your butt look bigger, you just look like you have a major wedgie

But for those wondering where the trend came from, you can almost guarantee that Kylie Jenner had something to do with it.
