This is my second time wearing a high waisted bikini and they are so amazing! I couldn't just keep this secret to myself, so today I wanted to let you in on some of the reasons why a high waisted bikini should be #1 on your summer (or spring break) shopping list!
1. MAKE YOUR WAIST LOOK SMALLER IN FIVE SECONDS
Um, who wouldn't want this?! Unlike regular bikini bottoms that sit on the hips, high waisted ones hit you at your natural waist and accentuate it's small size by doing so. Even if you're used to low coverage bikinis, you can find hi-rise bikinis with cutouts, strappy sides, or sheer pieces so you still feel sassy even though you're more covered.
2. FLATTER YOUR CURVES
No matter your body type, you can find a high waisted swimsuit that will flatter your figure! The bottoms are already working for your waist, all you need to do is decide on a high, normal, or lower cut leg opening and the right top. I have an athletic body, but the fit of this bikini with normal cut sides gives me some shape and I'm loving it! See more of my favorites at the bottom of this post!
3. ENJOY THE COMFORT OF A ONE PIECE
This is the best part! Since these bathing suits cover most of your stomach, it almost feels like wearing a one piece. If for any reason you're (and you shouldn't be!) concerned about your lower abdomen being exposed, this is the perfect alternative to a one-piece. Maybe you just over-indulged on vacation like I did and this bathing suit is perfect for your last day on the beach!
