Since summertime provides the best weather to take a dip in the pool or frolic along the beach, these three months usually bring an onslaught of fresh bathing suit style moments. Based on recent celeb Instagrams and TikToks, it’s clear that thong bikinis, aka thongkinis, are one of summer 2023’s biggest swimsuit trends. All across your feeds, you can catch everyone from Emily Ratajkowski to Gabrielle Union displaying their behinds with minimal fabric, but there’s no one better to take inspo from than the one who broke the internet with her butt: Kim Kardashian. The media mogul and all of her famous sisters have been rocking thongkinis for years, so it's no surprise that she has become the queen of the style, providing mere mortals with all sorts of thongkini inspiration.

While the 42-year-old wears more than just her own designs, after the release of SKIMS and subsequently the SKIMS swim line, more often than not, she can be found rocking her very own SKIMS thong bikinis that come in various styles and colors all the way from Barbiecore pink to her signature, more neutral shades. No matter what bikini Kardashian wears, you can count on it to fit into the thong category. Below, find all of Kim Kardashian’s thongkini pics from 2023 (so far).
