Who says a bikini needs to be itty-bitty to be sexy? Beach bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and happily, these days, so do swimsuits. While we’re all for wearing whatever style makes you feel most confident, one that’s particularly flattering for all body types is the high-waisted bikini bottom. Whether you choose strappy, cheeky, or classic, you’ll look super-hot come swimsuit season.
“High-waisted bikini briefs complement women for many reasons, but most importantly, they are designed to keep her snatched while she’s on the beach or poolside,” says Tamara Ivey, style expert for plus-size fashion label Ashley Stewart. “With the uncompromising fit, there isn’t a woman out there that high-waisted briefs wouldn’t flatter. Not only will they keep her together, but they also give that pin-up fashion feel that is always in style!”
