The road to finding the perfect bikini presents a paradox of sorts: While we could post 10 thirst-trapping images of the same two-piece to our social feeds, more often than not, the act of shopping for said swimsuit is a stress-ridden experience — one filled with questions, like, "Why would I spend $200 on a string that covers only part of a nipple?" Looking at what's available on the market, it seems that the missing material from our barely-there tops has gone to our bottoms.
High-waisted styles have stuck around for yet another summer, and we're thrilled to see it. Ahead, we've rounded up 19 of these bikini sets featuring an array of prints and silhouettes — from retro lingerie-inspired balconettes paired with belly button-grazing bottoms to sporty tie-dyed scoop-neck tops matched with full coverage hipsters. Shop them all below.
