The Best High-Waisted Bikini Bottoms for Style and Comfort
High-waisted bikini bottoms have long been a must-have for holiday season. While celebrities may favour the thongkini trend or the ’90s skimpy tie-up bikini bottoms that expose more skin, there’s something about high-waisted bikini bottoms that ooze retro glamour.
If you’re torn between a chic swimming suit or a strappy bikini, high-waisted bikini bottoms literally fill the gap between the two. Sitting higher on the waist means the fabric covers the lower tummy area and those extra inches of coverage can make all the difference to feeling confident by the pool. While every body is beautiful, everyone also deserves to feel comfortable in their own skin, and for some, this means high-waisted or tummy control bikini bottoms.
When it comes to choosing the perfect pair, the options are endless. “Many of our swimwear styles come with the option of high-waisted briefs in a variety of different colours and fabrics, which you can mix and match to get a swimwear look that you can feel confident in,” says Hannah Turner, Buying Manager at Bravissimo.
Which Body Types Suit High-Waisted Bikini Bottoms?
Anyone who wants to wear them! High-waisted bikini bottoms sit at your natural waist therefore they will look flattering no matter what body type you have. Hourglass and pear-shaped figures have a naturally defined waist which is accentuated with this style, whereas it also adds curves to a column figure, and supports an apple shape. As such, high-waisted bikini bottoms are a beach fave for everyone.
How to Wear High-Waisted Bikini Bottoms?
Nearly all bikini tops go with high-waisted bottoms; strapless, halter, triangle, sporty, the list goes on. For maximum coverage look for a long-line top that’ll just leave an inch of torso between your high-waisted bikini bottoms. We love a simple bandeau style top for minimal tan lines, alternatively a crop top style looks fab on most figures. A white linen shirt looks timeless and chic as a cover-up (why not add it to your airport outfit to save on packing room) and complete your look with a bucket hat or cap, and some chunky sandals.
