Chrissy Teigen has made appearances in eight different SI Swimsuit Issues, traveling to the Maldives, Chile, the Bahamas, Zanzibar and more. The mom of three also was featured on the cover of the 50th anniversary issue of the magazine alongside Nina Agdal and Lily Aldridge.

Throughout her years with the publication, Teigen has modeled everything from bikinis and one-pieces to seashells—but the 37-year-old entrepreneur candidly revealed on Twitter that she’s not a fan of a current swimwear trend.

“Me personally, me, I, I do not like triangular bikini tops worn the weird way that people seem to enjoy which is great for them I am glad they like it, I just personally do not, as a hot personal take,” Teigen wrote on Sunday.

She followed up in a secondary post clarifying the specific style: “that weird upside down way where it loops around the neck and the scrunch part is facing the middle of your chest.”

Plenty of Teigen’s 12.8 followers on the platform chimed in to the conversation to share their thoughts—many of whom were in agreement with the model. One person even provided a helpful visual for those who were unfamiliar with the trendy style.

“it’s abhorrent and i’m glad you’re using your platform for important issues such as these!” someone quipped.

“Omg! I thought this was a new bikini design 😂,” one person admitted. 
“I didn’t realize people were actually wearing their tops upside down lol.”

“Weirdly intriguing take,” one person noted, to which Teigen responded, “appreciate it!! didn’t want to upset anyone with it but had to get it OFF MY CHEST HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.”
