If you’ve ever worn a pair of high-waisted pants, you know from experience that the benefits are many. Sit down, and there’s no concern about what is “showing” on your backside. Wear a fitted pair, and you don’t have to worry much about your flesh being cinched and/or extending beyond the sides. Well, rejoice: The benefits translate to the high-waisted pants’ summer friend, the high-waisted bikini (who is, fortunately, mighty popular at the moment). This is definitely the way to go if your stomach is not an area you feel you want to feature. And it’s equally perfect for you if you have a weak spot for retro and vintage looks. When selecting a suit, look for a boy-short type cut at the legs, and pair with the bikini-top style most flattering for you. Then all you have to do is splash around and have a little fun in the sun.
