Celebrate Your Shape. Try the High Waist.

Some may call high waist bottoms “retro”. We call them fabulous. High waist bottoms—panties and swimwear alike—represent a classic style for sure. And it’s with good reason. They cling to the natural shape and form of a woman or at least to the shape we aim to display: the hourglass. Celebrate and embrace your shape.

Now, a high-waist panty isn’t ideal for your low-rise jeans. However, worn beneath a pencil skirt or cocktail dress, a high waist brief panty offers slenderizing support in addition to sexy, curve-hugging style. Not only does the hi-waist panty make you look fabulous, you’ll feel fabulous, too.

Not sure which high waist panty to try? The Chantelle C Magnifique High Waist Brief Panty gets rave reviews on HerRoom for offering brilliant control and comfort. This great fitting shaper features a beautiful design and comes in several colors.

The high waist style takes well to the beach and the pool, too. These aren’t your grandma’s 1950’s bikini bottoms. They’re hot and right on trend for today. From solids to funky, fun prints you can find the perfect high-waist bikini bottom to express your unique style.

You can mix and match patterned high waist bottoms with any number of bikini tops and styles. The Coco Rave Most Wanted High Waisted Swim Bottom pairs perfect with a fringe halter-top. When you’re look for even more tummy coverage than the high waist bottom offers, you can top off your suit with a tankini. Investing in a solid-colored high wasited bottom allows you to make playful choices with your bikini tops. We’ve all got a few two-piece suits where the bottoms are more heavily worn than the top. Extend the life of your favorite bikini top by trying a stylish hi waist bottom.

Have you tried a high-waisted panty or swimsuit bottom? What’s your take—are they too retro or perfectly current?
