The countdown to summer is on—and if you’re ready to make your swimwear debut, we highly recommend doing so in one of the best high-waisted bikinis. The swimsuit style has been a mainstay in beach repertoires for years, but with seemingly everyone looking to step out for a statement summer, we’re seeing higher rises and higher cuts than ever.
High-waisted bottoms are great to have on deck for pool parties, sun-soaked rooftop sessions (with SPF, of course), and maybe even your first warm-weather getaway since the pandemic started. The high-rise fit is endlessly versatile and combines the sexiness of a bikini with the coverage of a full bathing suit—plus, it looks good with just about any top (think: bandeaus, triangle, or one-shoulder styles). Even better? You can find high-waisted bottoms in cuts that work for all kinds of body types: Those with longer torsos may prefer an ultra high-rise that grazes the ribcage, while shorter torsos might want a mid-rise bottom that only kisses the belly button.
Whether you want a cheeky fit à la Hailey Bieber or full-coverage bottoms you can comfortably take a dip in, we have options for you on this list—and across all kinds of budgets, textures, and prints. Shop 26 of the best high-waisted bikinis below.
