Best Instagram Caption For Your Thirst Trap Photo

Summer is approaching, and that means you're going to be doing things like barbecuing, swimming and planning a few more outings with your bestie.

The warmer weather is just another excuse to keep your Instagram photos on point and with that comes gorgeous, glamorous thirst trap photos.

What is a thirst trap? I'm glad you asked.


A thirst trap is a social media photo that you know, well before the "likes" roll in, is peak sexy. Let us turn to Queen of the Thirst Trap, Amber Rose, for a spot-on demonstration.

This post may double as a Fashion Nova ad, but it's a thirst trap above all else, kids. All hail Queen Amber.

Understand though, your thirst trap doesn't have to exactly show off the goods, although you may do so if you like because: body autonomy. Your pouty selfies that all but whisper "come hither," and any cocktail dresses you slip into for a summer gala qualify as well.

Wear all of your clothes or don't, but the point is to turn up the sexy, even when you plan to look like you're not trying to be sexy at all (i.e. gym pics, people).

That said, you do plan to thirst trap the hell out of your exes and crushes this summer, right?
