There is perhaps no one on this earth that loves posting bikini pics more than Kim Kardashian. And honestly, I’m not mad about it. Seeing Kim Kardashian’s bikini photos can sometimes be a bitter reminder that I’m stuck in NYC in the dead of winter, but hey, at least someone’s enjoying themselves!
Whether she’s rocking a trendsetting monokini or a classic stringy two-piece that fits her like a glove, Kardashian’s beach and poolside attire is always on point. Unlike some stars that opt to layer up on beachy accessories like oversized hats, jewelry and sunnies, Kim usually keeps it simple—which is why her warm-weather looks can often be easily copied. You might not want to drop a grand on a bikini like she will, but finding a similar style at a lower price is often manageable.
Kardashian got famous way back when for her body, and since then, she’s proved to us that she’s so much more than a good figure. Our girl is a wonderful mother, a lawyer-to-be, a bona fide fashion icon and a budding comedy genius (Yes, I’m talking about her big moment on SNL from 2021)!
That said, every once in a while she still likes to remind us how hot she is, courtesy of a spontaneous bikini photo posted to the ‘Gram! Below, her latest swimsuit snap—a chocolatey brown string number—and a look back at some of her best from years past.
“Sweet sweet fantasy baby,” Kardashian captioned the photo, which showcased not only her skimpy brown string bikini, but let her fans know two more intimate details about her life. First, that she reads Vanity Fair. Second, that she doesn’t own AirPods.
In a post from November 2021, Kardashian poses in a black bandeau-style bikini and a long side braid. She appears to be in a hot tub, which (according to the caption) is her happy place.
I love Kim in color, so the vibrant purple of this micro-kini she rocked in Palm Springs in July 2021 makes it one of my all-time favorites.
We know our girl loves neutrals, but honestly, I’m calling her bluff from back in June 2021. There’s no way this low-cut top is holding in her chest for more than a photo op! A swim sesh in the pool with her kids? Not in this number.
Let it be known that on this day in May 2021, Kardashian made rash guards look hot.
In May 2021, Kardashian posted this strappy black bikini with a criss-cross detail at the stomach, sparking a brand new swimwear trend.
And let’s not forget her monokini phase! This one-piece from May 2021 is barely one piece, thanks to a dramatic cutout in the center.
Kardashian rarely poses with her cover-up on, but this vacay photo from May 2021 lets us in on her go-to: a super-cropped button-up blouse.
BFFs that swim together, win together! Kim and Lala look so cute in their matching tie-dye bikinis from April 2021.
“Studying in the sun,” Kardashian captioned this photo from April 2021. To be clear, I have never once in my life looked this good while studying.
Wondering what Kim wears to the beach when she’s there with her kids? Coordinating neons, natch!
Another monokini moment, this time from April 2021. The contrast stitching was everything!
Another April bikini moment, this time a classic black number that fits Kardashian like a glove.
This barely-there neutral bikini from March 2021 was cute, but it was the Louis Vuitton headscarf that really won me over.
This shinier chocolate brown bikini is especially cute on Kim. Was she predicting this year’s brown trend all the way back in March 2021?
Another blouse-as-cover-up moment, this time in beachy cream with some strappy tie accents.
Posting a photo in a bikini so nude you actually seem naked and then captioning it, “I’m shy”?! Icon energy only.
This February 2021 photograph is proof that Kardashian absolutely needs to start wearing more lime green.
Kim rarely gravitates towards patterned swimwear, but in February 2021, she had some fun with this coral-inspired print.
