The High Waisted Bikini

We love the high-waisted bikini. Marilyn Monroe is known to have perfected the look; Grace Kelly was striking with her elegant sartorial style and today more modern fashion stars like Taylor Swift, Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian have been seen sporting this trend. So what is it that makes the high-waisted bikini such an iconic and lasting look?


Regardless of your thoughts, whether you love them or hate them, year on year the high-waisted bikini just gets better and better. Super flattering floral prints, vertical stripes, color blocking or simply chic black and white, the retro-vintage vibes of the high-waisted bikini are undeniably casual and cool.


If you are looking to be pin up perfect on the beach StyleMeDivine has been checking out how you can be super stylish on the beach or for that poolside party.




Think fabric & fit

High-waisted swimsuits are destined to emphasize your booty. To avoid the granny panty-diaper effect, thicker materials will hold their shape whilst flimsy fabrics will test the style stakes becoming saggy when wet.


Think contours

Unlike regular bikini bottoms high-waisted ones will draw the eye to your natural waist. It’s all about in at the waist out at the hips; look for more cover rather than less. Be wary of styles with cutouts, strappy sides or sheer pieces, where possible stick to a basic, solid color paneling, rouching, prints and a waist-defining band will ensure a faultless profile.


Think style

 High, low, normal leg or a skirted bottom this style offers maximum but sassy cover. Pair high-waisted bikini bottoms with a ruffle top to emphasize a smaller bust, it provides balance.   This look is fabulous to keep muffin tops in check and if you are just a little conscious about showing off your tummy then it’s a perfect choice for you.


Enjoy the comfort and security of this stylish look, planning to romp around the ocean you can be sure that high-waisted bottoms will stay in place with no embarrassing unexpected exposure.

And, just in case you are feeling a bit more risqué then take the high-waisted off the beach and make it day time the Rose Byrne way, wear underneath a sheer lace dress.

Wear it with confidence; it’s a look that’s here to stay. This bootylicious fashion forward trend offers a silhouette to suit every body shape and one that is destined to emphasize your curves.
