I Only Wear High-Waisted Bikinis, and These Are My Favorites

While I can't put my finger on exactly when I started opting exclusively for high-waisted swimwear (or, of course, one-pieces), I can tell you I'm glad the trend has lasted and is very much here to stay. After all, though my style could hardly be called modest, I find comfort in those extra few inches of material and have grown quite emotionally accustomed to them when hitting the beach. Can you relate?

If so, or if you're an equal-opportunity-swimwear shopper, I think you might enjoy this roundup of my favorite high-waisted bikinis. From the swimsuits I've loved for years to those I discovered on Instagram, shop my picks below and see how others wear them along the way!

Next, The Anti-Trend Staple That's Sure to Define Summer Fashion (Again)

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
