High Waist Bottoms: Hot or Not?

By Linda's Online on June 7th, 2013

If you don’t know yet: the retro trend is “in”. I love this throw back to another era. But what’s surprised me is the high waist bottoms! I thought gingham prints and retro bandeau tops would be enough, but I was shocked by the popularity of the high waist bottoms. Who knew? It seems you either love or hate the high waist trend. So what do you think? Is wearing a high waist swimsuit bottom or panty hot, or not? Take a look at some of the styles below and let me know your thoughts in the comments!

High waist bottoms are not actually higher than your actual waist. Most are designed to sit at your natural waist, or just below it. But with recent fashions leaning toward a decidedly low rise style, is there room for the high waist bottom in today’s swimwear and lingerie? Personally, I think they’re fabulous! It’s so nice to have the option of a little more coverage on the bottom. If the high waist style flatters your shape, and gives you a bit more confidence – go for it! Let me know what you think of these fabulous high waist styles:

So what do you think? Would you give the high waist bottom trend a try? Have you worn them before? Do you think they are sexy, practical, trendy, or overrated? Let me know!

Happy swimsuit season!
