Bathing suits can be a tricky item to shop for, regardless of your body type. With all the different styles, cuts and colors, it can feel nearly impossible to hunt down the perfect bathing suit for those days you’ll be lounging by the pool. High waisted bathing suits are a style that have been popularized over the past few years. They were originally most fashionable during the 1950s and ’60s, but our favorite celebrities have been seen rocking these retro pieces, bringing them back in style.

Thanks to celebrity style, high waisted bathing suits are all the rage again! Check it out below.

1. Printed: A printed bathing suit will add some fun to your style. Seen on celebs like Vanessa Hudgens, opting for a more eccentric swimsuit would be fun to wear at a pool party. A printed high waisted bikini is especially appropriate for the more colorful girls that want to show their personality through their clothes!

2. Strappy: A high waisted bathing suit with strappy details can give a sexy edge. This style is especially flattering, and it can turn a boring swimsuit into something totally unique. Pick up a funky bikini top and pair it with a plain pair of bottoms so there isn’t too much going on, and the attention is immediately geared toward the star of the outfit!

3. One piece: Typically, high waisted bathing suits are two-pieces, but there are a million options if you’re looking for something full coverage. Lea Michele rocked this adorable one piece bathing suit with a cute cut-out in the middle along with a high neckline. This swimsuit is perfect for the beach, plus it’s guaranteed to look amazing on all body types!

4. Cut outs: Similar to the vibes Lea Michele was lending, cut out bathing suits are super on trend. Small cut outs in your high waisted bikini can give you a slightly sexier edge while still being able to cover up certain parts of your body. Instead of opting for a regular bikini, try out one of these edgier swimsuits.
