Why You Need A High-Waist Bikini This Season

Share

While we can’t deny our love for barely there swimwear, sometimes a Brazilian-cut swimsuit isn’t the most practical silhouette for a beach day. Hello, high-waist bikini. Equal parts chic and flirty, this retro-inspired silhouette means there is less chance of wave-induced wardrobe malfunctions, so you can actually enjoy yourself without fidgeting with your bikini bottoms all day. But don’t be fooled by the seemingly conservative nature of this season’s must-have suit: It’s sexy and flattering on just about every body type. Don’t believe us? Slip into one for yourself—or simply check out how Gigi Hadid rocked hers this past weekend.
