16 Ridiculously Flattering High-waisted Swimsuits
It's that time of year again when nothing sounds better than spending all day lying in the sun and wading (or cannonballing) into the water. Whether you are going to an ocean, river, reservoir, lake, water park, pool, or fishing hole, you’ll likely require a swimsuit — and there's no reason for it to be anything but stylish and flattering.
Luckily, high waisted bathing suits look particularly great on all body shapes. This style, which cuts off just above your belly button, at the narrowest part of your torso, gives the look of curves to those who want them and allows greater coverage for those who prefer it.
There are many different styles to choose from; the classic high-waisted bikini is has a vintage flair to it, but many brands have designed more modern versions, with bells and whistles like laces, stripes, and fringe.
