Look, no one has to tell you that Pinterest is always there in a pinch. It's the site you pull up while wedding planning, before hair color appointments, and if you're not sure what to do with the ingredients in your fridge. (Need a recipe to make for dinner that night? Pinterest has your back.) What you may not realize is that it's also a valuable shopping resource; it's easy to track rising trends just by seeing what people are pinning. Just take a look at the most-shopped bathing suits on Pinterest — the site released the list just in time for swimsuit season, and there's more than one trend to watch.
Of course, the list is in the form of a Pinterest board, too. What may surprise you, though, is the affordability of the top-shopped swimwear: Besides one bikini set, each swimsuit retails for under $30. And that outlier isn't going to break the bank either — it's Cupshe's Smocked Green and Monstera High-Waisted Bikini, and will cost you only $33.99.
Obviously, you can tell that prints will be in this summer just by glancing at the board. Many are ones you've probably already spotted in ready-to-wear, such as this $24.99 leopard one piece or this fruit print-covered swimsuit for $28; Pinterest saw a 445 percent increase in users searching for "leopard bathing suit" this year. Light and feminine prints will have their moment this summer as well. Not one, but two smocked floral bikini sets landed on Pinterest's list.
However, one style has captured the hearts of Pinterest shoppers everywhere. According to the website's data, crochet swimsuits will be the trend for summer 2019; searches for "crochet bathing suit" increased by a whopping 1,829 percent, year-over-year. And the website also provided one such style its users are loving right now: Forever 21's Crochet Lace-Up One-Piece Swimsuit. Regularly just $29.90, the one piece is on sale for only $20.93 — so make sure you get yours while it's still in stock.
Curious about which other suits — and trends — you should add to your shopping cart? Just keep scrolling down. All seven most-shopped swimsuits from Pinterest are ahead, plus the data that backs them up.
