High Cut Swimwear

Fashion is cyclical, and swimwear is no different. Trends come and go and come back again. The latest trend to make a comeback is high cut swimwear.

It’s surprising that this figure flattering style ever went out of fashion. High cut swimwear was huge in the 80s and 90s, but was taken over by hipster, low waist, and full coverage styles.

The high cut pant line elongates the legs, accentuates the curves, and gives a beautiful shape to the bottom. If you haven’t tried a high cut swimsuit in a while, or ever, we strongly suggest you take a closer look at this universally flattering trend and give it some serious consideration.

Why Choose High Cut Swimwear?

Your legs look longer. If you wish to elongate your pins and appear taller, a high cut swimsuit is an instant leg lengthener. Instead of cutting you off at the hip crease, high cut swimsuits show more skin, giving the illusion that your legs start from higher up, appearing longer and leaner.

They are comfortable. High cut bathers follow the natural curves of the body without digging in. You’ll feel like you have more freedom to move around comfortable without restriction. Once you get used to the feeling of a high cut, you’ll never go back to low leg styles.

Flattering for your bum. High cut swimwear creates a cheeky bottom coverage. This skimpier pant style shows a little more cheek and a little less fabric, which gives the bottom a lovely shape and further elongates the silhouette.

Creates an hourglass figure. Whether it’s a bikini or a one piece, a high cut swimsuit creates an hourglass shape by accentuating your curves and waistline. The eye is drawn to the fabric of the swimsuit, which is cut in this curvy silhouette.

Choosing Your Size

When it comes to high cut swimwear, you might find that you need to choose a different size depending on the look you’re after. While our styles are cut true to size, if you are still wary of showing too much skin, you might like to opt for the next size up to give you a little more coverage.

Choosing a high cut bikini bottom in a bigger size will offer you more coverage for the tummy and bottom, giving you that super high waist look that is so current right now.

High Cut Bikini Bottoms

The easiest way to try out the high cut trend is with a pair of bikini bottoms. Whether you wear them with a bikini or tankini top, a pair of high cut swim pants will allow you to experience the leg lengthening effect of this flattering trend without committing to a full swimsuit.

Our most popular style is the high cut, high waist bikini pant that we offer in a range of prints and plains. This flattering swim bottom offers a cheeky cut and high leg rise to give you an elongated look with comfortable tummy coverage.

You can create a high cut look with a tie side bikini pant too. Simply pull the sides up and tie them higher on the hip. Tie sides are a great option for women who have narrower or wider hips that don’t fit standard cut bikini bottoms. This adjustable style is fun and sexy and worth trying if you want a cute high cut swim pant.
