5 High-Waisted Bikini Looks for Your Inner Gigi

A high waisted swimsuit harkens back to the days of yore when bathing beauties defined their parents and wore that skimpy bikini anyway. Little did they know that swimsuits would become far more scandalous. I’m all for a high-waisted swimsuit. I think they are super flattering and they make you feel more covered if you aren’t used to running around in basically your underwear. These five high-waisted swimsuits have been styled for different types of people. I feel like a high-waisted swimsuit is really feminine and i’ve shown that in several of the different looks. It doesn’t have to be though. The first look is more sporty.

 

 

This is the swimsuit version of Stella McCartney’s optical illusion dress. It’s super flattering just like the dress. It makes your collar bones stand out and gives the illusion of a tiny waist with the panels on the side.
