I Only Wear High-Waisted Bikinis—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 that I'm very glad the trend has lasted and is very much here to stay. After all, though my style could hardly be called modest, there is an inexplicable comfort I find in those extra few inches of material that I've grown quite emotionally accustomed to when hitting the beach. Can you relate?

If so, or if you're an equal-opportunity-swimwear shopper, then I think you might enjoy the roundup below of my favorite high-waisted bikinis on the market right now. From swimsuits I've loved for years to others I have to thank Instagram for leading me to, shop my picks below and see how other cool girls are also wearing them along the way!
