It’s finally, finally that time of year when coats and jumpers vanish off the racks to be replaced by bathing suits and coverups. You’ll probably notice that one of the biggest trends in jeans has made its way into the swimwear aisle—the high waist. And we are crazy thankful, because high-waisted bathing suits are so superior to their skimpy counterparts. Here’s why.
1. They’ve got that retro vibe
2. They’re like Spanx, but for swimming
Hold everything in plz!
3. More material means more fun details
Beading, ruffles, lace, ruching, cut-outs—more room for the fun stuff.
4. They’re way more comfortable
Just like regular pants are to thongs, high-waisted bathing suits are to teensy bottoms. It makes sense, promise.
5. Your booty will look fantastic
Instant apple bottom, none of the sag.
6. They stay UP!
No more worrying about diving into the water and losing your bottoms, or sitting out a game of beach volleyball because you keep having to hike them up.
7. Beyoncé wears them
Do you really need any other reason?
