Hello lovelies! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a great start to their week! Jordan and I just got home Monday from the beach and although we had SOOOO much fun, we are still SOOOO tired haha. I forgot how much energy traveling takes out of you.
Since we just got back from the beach and it’s still fresh on my mind, I wanted to share a few of the swimsuits I wore there that I absolutely loved, along with a couple other ones that are great options if you’re like me and you love the high-waisted swimsuits trend. Here are a few things I always look for when picking out a high-waisted swimsuit, especially when I’m buying it online and I can’t physically try it on (which btw, I NEVER do anyways with swimsuits because I find it incredibly gross. Just not for me.)
We all know that swimsuit bottoms have varying degrees of booty coverage and high-waisted swimsuits are no exception. Some that I’ve bought are SUPER cheeky and I feel like I’m constantly worrying if my butt is hanging out, whereas other ones I’ve bought, I feel like I’m wearing a diaper. I like my high-waisted swimsuits to fall somewhere in between those two extremes in terms of coverage. I don’t want my butt to be hanging out, especially since I normally post my outfit and beach pics to the Internet, but I also don’t want to… well… again, feel like I’m wearing a diaper lol.
Medium coverage is pretty easy to find when you’re looking at high-waisted swimsuits, as long as you make sure you read the description, reviews and look at the pictures. I can normally tell if the coverage is something I’m going to be happy with or not by paying attention to these three things.
How High-Waisted They Are
I have a short torso so, I have to be careful when I’m choosing high-waisted anything because if I’m not careful, it’ll end up practically coming up to my boobs. I normally look for high-waisted swimsuits that come just up to my belly-button. I can normally tell by the picture on the website I’m purchasing from if it’s going to be crazy high-waisted or just a normal amount. The ones I’ve bought so far and really liked, and the ones that I’m recommending in this post, are all ones that look to be the right amount of high-waisted so your entire torso doesn’t get swallowed up.
Are They High-Leg or Not
This is probably the biggest thing I look at when I’m deciding whether or not I want to buy a high-waisted swimsuit or not. I was super late to join the high-waisted swimsuit club because I bought one a couple years ago from Target (right as it was becoming popular to wear high-waisted swimsuits) and it looked awful on me. As I mentioned above, I have a short torso so I have to be picky when I pick out high-waisted anything. When I bought my first high-waisted swimsuit, I learned that I not only needed to watch out for how high-waisted the swimsuit I was buying was, but also if they are high-leg or not.
The one I bought was NOT and the way my body is shaped… I basically looked like I was wearing a diaper. I did NOT like it at all, it was SUPER unflattering and I honestly don’t think I ever ended up wearing it past the initial try on.
So NOW when I pick out a high-waisted swimsuit, I make sure to look for ones that are either labeled “high-leg” or ones that I can tell from the picture won’t swallow up my entire bottom half and make me look like I’m wearing a diaper outside.
