As Summer seems to be closer than ever, now is the time to start shopping for clothes for warmer weather. This also means grabbing a new bathing suit for when we can finally hit the beach or swim in a pool. One specific type of bathing suit that was in style decades ago and is super trendy these past few years are high waisted bathing suits. They may look vintage, or be considered retro (or really just cool), but they are just as flattering and popular as any bathing suit you can find nowadays. Here’s some great stores to grab the best high waisted bikinis for Summer!
Let’s be real, Target seems to have everything we need in one store. And, they also have great bathing suits for warmer months – especially when it comes to high waisted bikinis. While they already make it super easy on their website to search for bathing suits that we all might want, they also have great options for mix and match tops and high waisted bikini bottoms as well as matching bikini sets. Whether you want to keep it vibrant and bold or solid when it comes to colors, Target has you covered in the bikini department. They also have a wide range of patterns like stripes, animal print, polka dots, and more. Not every high waisted bikini bottom looks the same either – some have cut outs on the side, mesh, or even lace up on the sides. They have a ton of options to choose from. If you haven’t tried out a high waisted bikini yet, Target is a great place to buy your first one especially because of how many bathing suits they have in store, as well as how easy it is to filter your bathing suit preferences in then most specific way.
One website that is making high waisted bikini bottoms totally back in style is Venus. When going on their website, you’ll see that they have tons of options when it comes to bathing suits. Whether you’re looking for something different like a high neck halter bathing suit, or cut out on the sides bottoms, Venus has a lot to choose from. When it comes to high waisted bikinis for summer, Venus also has their retro high waist bottom bathing suit that comes available in 12 different colors. It has a matching halter bathing suit top that comes in the same colors that makes a super cute set for the summer, or if you want to mix and match with other tops – the solid color of the high waisted bottoms makes it easy to do so. Finding either a top or a bottom in a solid color you won’t get tired of, makes it a staple piece for summer swimwear that you can pair along with any design or pattern you want!
I’m sure most of us know by now that Aerie has some of the best deals when it comes to loungewear, underwear, bathing suits, leggings – you know, all the important apparel. They always have the most flattering bathing pieces of clothing, and they of course have great high waisted bikinis for summer too. While there a ton of places out there to shop for bathing suits, Aerie has been one of the top choices for years. What is first fantastic about Aerie overall, is that they show women of all shapes and sizes wearing bathing suits. They show how bathing suits fit all kinds of women, which is important for all of us when we are looking for a new style or design on a bathing suit. Wearing high waisted bikinis can feel totally different than a low pair of bottoms that rests on your hips. Like high waisted jeans, high waisted bottoms have become just as popular and Aerie makes it easy to see why. They take every trend, style, color palette, and make the coolest, most stylish bikinis that everyone will be asking you where you got it. They even made a high waisted bikini bottom that is a skirt, with a matching tank-top like bikini top, that can be worn as a matching set. So, you can basically wear your new favorite outfit in the water and not worry about it getting ruined.
Another store that is doing it right when it comes to bikinis, is Old Navy. Old Navy has been around for what seems like forever, and that’s nothing but a great thing. They are home to the best ribbed tank tops and camis ever, and also an amazing clearance rack where you can find the best deals on pretty much everything from shoes to belts to pants all in one part of the store. When it comes to high waisted bikinis and keeping up with the trend, Old Navy has their own share of cool prints and designs like the previous stores mentioned do. They also make high waisted bikini bottoms in maternity as well. Even cooler – they make high waisted bikini bottoms that are swim skirts. We may not see high waisted swim skirts as often as we see the standard high waisted bottoms, but they are definitely making their way to become as popular as ever. You can pair them with a matching top, or mix and match with a fun print as the bikini top. They also make high waisted boy short swim bottoms, which again takes a cool twist on your average high waisted bikini bottom choice. Like the swim skirt, pairing high waisted short bottoms with a bikini top will make for a unique bathing suit that is versatile, depending on what prints, patterns or color palette you decide to go with. While Old Navy always has the perfect flip flops too for the beach, they have great bathing suits as well and are definitely worth checking for this summer along with Venus, Aerie and Target.
