25 High-Waisted Swimsuits That’ll Have You Serving Bawdy

high waisted swimsuits 2021


Say hello to the most timeless swimwear silhouette: the high-waisted bikini. These two-pieces are mad comfy and effortlessly cool. They offer more coverage than a typical string bikini and, like your favorite mom jeans, the cut helps to keep the waist snatched (if that’s the look you’re going for).

A good high-rise swimsuit offers up the perfect in-between, with both the benefits of a tiny bikini and a full-coverage suit. Personally, I will wear nothing else–and once you try your first set, you’ll 100% see why. Shopping and inspo ahead, fam!
