7 reasons you should try a high-waisted bathing suit this summer


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

Timelessly classy.
