Just like the good old one-piece swimsuit, opting for a high-waisted bikini in 2018 doesn't mean you're too conservative or insecure to show off your "bikini body" (see: not a real thing). It's just a fun, refreshing silhouette that's perfect for when you actually are looking for more coverage but still want to show off a little midriff. Consider this high fit the most comfortable, and equally as cute, middle ground.
Since making its big comeback a few years ago, you're essentially guaranteed to find at least one high waisted option in the lineup of just about every swimwear brand out right now. Whether you gravitate towards big designer names like Lisa Marie Fernandez and Solid & Striped, or take the budget-friendly route with mall brands like Aerie and J.Crew, finding the right suit won't be hard. (What will be hard is not buying a bunch of the right ones.)
That said, you can't underestimate the potential to mix-and-match with these pieces, either. Maybe all you really need is one trusty, versatile pair of high-waisted bottoms to revive all of those loose bikini tops you keep in the back of your drawer.
Either way, we've pulled together 23 different high waisted bottom options that satisfy just about every style, size need, and budget below.
