Now that summer is fully here, it’s about time to get my bathing suit. For years I’ve been searching for the perfect (or any really, let’s be honest) high-waisted bathing suit. Why are there not that many options? Do that many people really wear bikini style bottoms? In any case, for Summer 2013, there are definitely more options popping up than years before. I love that you have more of a selection from handmade shops and small businesses. Here are my favorite high-waisted suits:
- Floral bathing suits by Gattina Designs
- Classic Navy Bathing Suit by BeBops
- High Waisted Black Suit by Whiskey Dog Wares
- Printed Suit by Rachel Granberry
- Black Tie Top by Anna K Shop
- Yellow Striped Bikini by Red Dolly Swimwear
The thing I love about these bathing suits are 1) they are automatically different looking — setting you apart from the string bikini crowd. 2) they are more comfortable! I can lounge around more easily without worrying about string bikini bits. 3) it isn’t a one-piece. granted, I do love the one piece bathing suits out there, but this just gives you a little more variation.
Once you’ve defined your suit style at the beach, adding on a little beach jewelry is the easy part. You can never be overdressed, even at the beach.
