Why you should try high cut swimwear

Whether you’re a fan or not, it seems like the high cut swimwear trend is here to stay. Originating in the 80s, the stylish cut saw a resurgence a couple of years ago and has been prominent all over Instagram ever since. The style is heavily inspired by swimsuits from the 80s and 90s, especially those iconic red one-piece swimsuits from Baywatch.

If you've found yourself intrigued by this trend revival or are feeling a little nostalgic for the swimsuits of your youth, take the plunge and get yourself into a pair of high cut bathers. You'll be glad you did.


Why are high cut bikinis so popular?

It’s simple, the trendy cut looks good and is flattering on everyone. Because the style of the bikini bottom sits higher on your hips and thighs, the cut will instantly elongate your legs making them look leaner and toned. As well as making your legs look longer, high cut swimwear will also give the illusion of a longer torso and can even make you look taller than you are.

The great thing about high cut swimwear is that it was designed with curvy bodies in mind. The style accentuates curves, it sits at the highest point on your hips creating a gorgeous hourglass shape.

Who are high cut bikinis for?

Everyone!

Women of all sizes are embracing the high cut bikini bottom trend and because they look flattering on every single size, you’re sure to find a style that you like. 

If you’re not comfortable wearing a bikini, high cut one pieces are also very popular. They’re still incredibly flattering and will accentuate your curves, while providing more coverage and support. 

While a lot of high cut bikini bottoms have a low waist style, high waisted options are becoming a trend as well. They offer a little more coverage than low waist options and are perfect if you’re wanting a style that covers your tummy.

Our high cut swimwear range

We have a range of high cut bikini bottoms in classic black and beautiful prints.  The great thing about the bikini bottoms is that they’re high waisted, meaning that they have a little more coverage than other high cut pants. The high waist helps to accentuate your waist and show off your curves, while still giving you the high cut swimwear trend. You can also wear high cut bikini bottoms with any top that makes you feel comfortable! 

All of our high cut bikini bottoms have a thick band across the top to keep them in place and stop them from falling down. They feature double stitching on the back and throughout the seams for added durability and support. 

Our latest high cut bikini style combines the trendy cheeky cut with chic leopard print for a classically sexy style to suit everyone. Pair these flattering swim pants with a matching bikini top from our first sustainable swim collection. Small busts will love the 2 way reversible bikini top and fuller busts will love the lift and support that the underwire bikini top provides. Retro lovers will fall head over heels for our popular crop wrap top which offers a multi fit and extra coverage. 

Feel free to mix and match prints and plains to create your own unique high cut bikini set from our collection of bottoms and gorgeous bikini tops.
