Now that you know where to buy a little black swimsuit, today it is all about the high waisted bikini! This retro fashion is back in style and hotter than ever. To me, it is the ideal swimsuit style. It provides more coverage than a regular bikini but it is not as modest as a one-piece.
I am not trying to throw myself a pity party, but it is not easy shopping for a high waisted bikini when you are only five feet tall. Some of the bottoms pulled up and over my rib cage (insert laughing emoji). Urkel in a swimsuit diaper is not cute! Others shortened the appearance of my torso even more leaving me with a very boxy shape. After trying on half a dozen high waisted bikinis, I had an epiphany! Lace-up bottoms make all the difference. So if you are short like me, in height or in the torso, consider a lace-up high waisted bikini bottom. Just do yourself a favor and wear it on the first day of your trip. Two weeks have gone by and I still have lace-up tan lines on my hips!
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! I should have known better…although pricier than Asos, Mara Hoffman swimwear always fits. The consistency across the brand is incredible – you are literally paying for the quality. This is my second Mara swimsuit and I am here to tell you they are worth every penny. It is your lucky day because this suit is on sale and available in two variations. For a day at the pool I laced up my pom pom foot sandals and threw on matching pom pom earrings. What do you think? Yea or nay?!
