Whether it’s my jeans, trouser pants, or my bikinis, when it comes to bottoms, high-rise cuts are always my go-to. Sure, low-rise pants may be making a resurgence with the Gen Z crowd, but mark my word, that is one trend I will definitely not be participating in. In my opinion, high-waisted bottoms are significantly more flattering on most figures (especially if you have a junior hourglass like me), and with the right high-waisted swimsuit, they can also be ultra lifting to the backside as well (which is always a plus, in my book).
Not only do high-cut and high-rise swimsuits exude a vintage appeal, but they’re also a great option for those who prefer to keep more of their midsection unexposed when they’re out in public. They’re truly a fabulous (and fuss-free) alternative to a classic one-piece swimsuit.
Whether you’re into a more modest fit with full coverage or prefer a retro, ’90s inspired style with a cheeky fit, there are plenty of high-rise swimsuit options to choose from, with a variety of on-trend colorways and fun prints on offer. Why not add a few different pieces to your lineup so you have some nice options during your next beach day or pool party?
