These Are The Best High Waisted Swimsuits That Will Cover Your Tummy!

Sexiest High Waisted Swimsuits

For so many of us, our stomachs…particularly our lower tummy… are problem areas. Having more bathing suit coverage allows us to feel more confident on the beach or at the pool. High waisted swimsuits are a perfect option. They are also designed to make your hips look smaller while covering up the lower part of your stomach. And, it may not seem like it, but they also have plenty of sex appeal.

I’ve put together a high waisted swimsuit guide below AND you can find more swimwear inspo in these posts…

Sexiest High Waisted Swimsuits

#1 | High Waisted Bottoms on Their Own

You can create the CUTEST swimsuit by pairing your favorite bikini top with some high waisted swimsuit bottoms! High waisted swim bottoms come in a variety of colors and patterns, but one of the the most versatile and slimming options is solid black. I would also consider matching your bottoms to your top. These high waisted bottoms by Becca have been some of my favorites for YEARS! They cover my lower tummy and make me feel sucked in and secure! They also have very flattering ruching that helps slim the tummy. I love these because I can mix and match them with just about any swim top, tankini, tee, etc.

# 2 | Matching Two-Piece High Waisted Swimsuits

You can buy high waisted swim bottoms on their own, you can mix and match, or you can purchase a complete look with a matching two-piece swimsuit that takes the guesswork out of it! One of my favorite matching swimsuit sets is this one from Amazon and only $26 (plus free shipping)! I also have it in black but it comes in a bunch of color options!
Choosing a matching two-piece set gives your swimwear a complete look and makes it that much easier to assemble the rest of your beach outfit. And there are plenty of matching swimsuits out there that aren’t bikinis…you can find a tankini top and matching bottoms too. You should be able to find a swimsuit that matches your unique style and flatters your body type!

High Waisted Swimsuit Shorts or Skirts

#3 | High Waisted Swimsuit Shorts or Skirts

If you want coverage but aren’t 100% sure about highwaisted bottoms, try swim shorts or skorts! Swimsuit shorts and skirts/skorts have a vintage look that is both sporty and cute. You get plenty of retro aesthetic, without compromising style or comfort. High waisted swimsuit shorts and skirts are comfortable and allow you to cover your upper leg. They’re purposely designed to help the wearer feel more confident and stylish. Choose high waisted swimsuit shorts or skirts for a sporty addition to any summer vacation packing list.
I recently purchased this cute swim skirt by Staud and love the sporty yet chic vibe. They look like a skirt in the front but have boy shorts underneath and in the back so they offer great bum coverage.

Do High Waisted Swimsuits Look Good On Everyone?

High waisted bikini bottoms offer a modest, yet alluring look that works great with most body shapes. They’re super comfortable and they hide your lower tummy, which for most women, is one of the areas they are least comfortable showing. A pair of high waisted bottoms allows you to do the two-piece swimsuit look on your own terms by giving you the coverage you want, but does not sacrifice style or sex appeal. You get a classically cut bathing suit bottom that is sure to stay in style for years to come.
No matter which type of high waisted swimsuit you choose, remember that nothing is more important than feeling comfortable and confident! If you need a little help figuring out what swimsuit would look best on your body shape, make sure you check out the posts we linked for you above.
