Whether for style or support, there are plenty of benefits when choosing a high-waisted bikini set. Having been an on-trend style for decades, they’re showing no signs of slowing down. That’s probably because they not only look beautiful but provide great cover too. So, whether you’re in for the 50’s pin-up aesthetic or a confidence boost, you’ll find the perfect high-waisted bikini bottoms or full set in this collection.

What to look for when choosing a high-waisted bikini?

Like any swimwear, you’ll want your high-waisted bikini to be constructed from materials that are quick dry and won’t fade when in contact with water and strong sun. The most common materials for ladies’ swimwear are nylon blends and polyester blends. If you’re after a soft and comfortable high-waisted bikini set, you’ll be best suited to nylon. For something a little stronger and both UV and chlorine resistant, choose polyester. This durable fabric is often the best choice for active swimwear.

Are high waisted bikinis flattering?

One of the biggest benefits of high-waisted bikini bottoms is how they help you achieve a flattering silhouette, despite the fact they’re not a full swimsuit. Rising just a little past the waist, they smooth out your waistline and will have you looking fabulous all day long. So, if you don’t often feel your best self when wearing a bikini, choosing high-waisted bikini bottoms might just do the trick. They’re often constructed from light stretch material which is perfect for responding to your curves while gently smoothing out your form.

Are high-waisted bikini sets in style?

High waisted bikini sets are super stylish and have been an on-trend choice for decades. Having first turned up in the 1950s, they’ve never gone away and still rock it from the Med to the Seychelles, the carnivals of Rio to the beaches of LA. A timeless classic, choosing a high-waisted bikini set will have you covered for a range of occasions. Consider pairing with some of our incredible beach cover-up kimonos and sarongs and you’ll be set for the day. If that beach day turns to cocktails on the marina, you’ll no doubt be turning heads and starting conversations for all the right reasons.

High-waisted bikini styles:

All high-waisted bikinis have a similar shape, rising close to the belly button and providing great coverage. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t choose your own personal style. First off, you’ll be able to pair your high-waisted bikini bottoms with a matching bikini top or even mix it up. So, if you prefer a plunge bikini top but need high-waisted bikini bottoms, there’s nothing stopping you finding that combination. What’s more, there are plenty of different colourways and patterns available. Some of the most popular include:

  • Nautical – Inspired by all things sailor and sea, nautical high rise bikinis are a real winner for holidays and summer days out. Expect plenty of sailor stripes, cute treasure styled embellishments, anchor prints and more. For a fun and bright aesthetic, consider our Pour Moi swimwear range which adds a youthful flavour to classic designs.
  • Tropical – Think palm trees, parrots and jungle flowers. A tropical high-waisted bikini set gives you a fun and funky aesthetic while still offering a sense of subtlety and control. We’d normally tell you to pair this with a cute beach cover-up, however a better idea might be an ice-cold Mai Tai, preferably from an all-inclusive beach bar!
  • Classic – For the classic look, consider a royal blue, white or black high-waisted bikini. We recommend looking for a block colour as this will give you a real air of elegance and sophistication. Add a touch of colour by looking for finishing details like contrast bows or stitching.

Where else are high-waisted bikini bottoms suitable for?

While holiday shopping is super exciting, you’ll also need to consider bikinis for more casual occasions. If you’re a regular at the local pool or putting in laps before or after work, you still have plenty of choices. Or perhaps you’ve got a spa day booked and want some high-waisted swimwear to make you feel and look great. Whatever the occasion, our collection has everything you need. So, whether you’re looking to enhance your sports performance or are jumping a plane to a white sand beach, a high-waisted bikini will have you covered.
