High-waisted jeans and high-waisted shorts have been popular for as long as I can remember – and who can blame them, to be honest? They complement every top so extraordinarily well, whether it’s a blouse, a collared shirt, or even a plain, solid colored t-shirt.
Now that it’s about that time to hit the beaches and or tan by the poolside, I’ll have you know that it is the exact same case with high-waisted bikini bottoms. In fact, one of the best parts about high-waisted bikini bottoms is the coverage and protection they provide while you can still look glamorous and glorious on the beach!
