15 High-Waisted Bikinis If Itty-Bitty Swimsuits Aren't for You

When it comes to swimsuit shopping, you either love it or you hate it. It sits right up there with jean shopping. However, despite the mixed feelings that may surface when purchasing swimwear, things tend to go smoothly when you have a type. Some people like itty-bitty bikinis and some people like a style with extra coverage. If you’re part of the latter, then the below is for you because we’re covering (see what we did there?) a cult favorite: high-waisted bikinis.

High-waisted bikinis have been beach and pool favorites for a while now, and they’ll be water-friendly favorites for years to come. Not only do they carry an inherently retro feel, but they provide the right amount of coverage for those who shy away from showing too much skin.

Nowadays, the swimsuit industry has taken them to new heights, experimenting with so many interesting color combinations, styles, and fabrics that you may not know where to start. Don’t fret, as we’ve put together the best high-waisted bikinis out there so you have one less thing to worry about.
