The Best High-Waisted Bikinis This Summer

by Claire Knebl

Before summer ends you need to buy a high-waisted swimsuit. These two-pieces are totally magic. If full bottoms make you think of granny panties, stop right there; let's break it down. While the shape originated in the 1940s, the higher rise on today's takes help highlight your waist, meaning they're figure-flattering for sure. On top of that (literally!), there's a range of halters, bandeaus, and bralettes to accompany your retro bottom half.

Our favorite? We're particularly fond of gotta-have-it mix-and-match pieces from Giejo, but we've also rounded up plenty of streamlined monochrome options and more. Click through to see all the high-waisted highlights!
