These High Waisted Swimsuits Will Cover Your Tummy…Yay!

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 also 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…

#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! 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 also 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!! I also have it in black but it comes in a ton 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 shape!

High Waisted Swimsuit Shorts or Skirts

If you want coverage but aren’t 100% sure about high waisted bottoms, try swim shorts! Swimsuit shorts and skirts 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 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 for a sporty addition to any summer vacation packing list.

I like this swim skirt from Lands End.

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 allow you to do the two-piece swimsuit look on your own terms by giving you the coverage you want that 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, be sure to watch this video.
