I AM fortunate sufficient to be jetting off to sunny Cyprus subsequent week.
But think about my shock, whereas scanning Instagram for the most recent bikini traits, once I’m flooded with photos of wedgies as a substitute.

That’s proper — ladies on seashores and poolsides intentionally pulling their bottoms up their . . . nicely, their bottoms.
Of course, trend is not at all times about consolation. But is a wedgie ever on trend?
Somehow, that irritating, even painful stretch of cloth that rides up the place it doesn’t belong, inflicting you to wiggle and waddle to alleviate your self, is en vogue.
Try stress-free on a solar lounger with something caught between your bum cheeks. As for sunscreen and sand . . . it makes you wince.
Unfortunately, in a play for Instagram likes, scantily clad influencers are embracing their wedgies — or “whale tails”.
That tag refers back to the second a whale disappears beneath the floor of the water, leaving its V-shaped tail within the air.
But earlier than I slam lovely fashions and influencers comparable to Emily Ratajkowski, Zara McDermott and Irina Shayk for making a (sea) monster, it wasn’t really them.
In the early Noughties, designs from the likes of Gucci and Jean Paul Gaultier championed pelvis-baring, low-slung denims that confirmed a glimpse of your designer thong.
This smaller tail — a dolphin, if you’ll — was a success on catwalks and purple carpets. Paris Hilton and Britney Spears liked the look. Nowadays, Kim Kardashian, 40, is blazing the path for a tail.
Don’t get me incorrect — it does look good. The hoicked-up cloth creates a fuller posterior, whereas the extra uncovered cheeks give the phantasm of a smaller waist. And good for them.
Kim, along with her military of non-public trainers, cooks, stylists and assistants, has all the pieces you have to take the proper pic.
But for us mere mortals — not blessed with all that assist, or the physique of a goddess — the considered lining up an Insta-snap along with your cossie midway up your derriere isn’t all so interesting.
For these of us who already really feel like a beached whale on the seaside, don’t fear.
No one is taking a look at us. They are trying on the lunatics with their swimwear shoved up their bums, taking 500 photos. Now move me a daiquiri.
