As of late I’m really into one-piece swimsuits a la Kendall Jenner’s plunging swimsuit. But if that’s too much for you, or just not appropriate for the occasion, I’ve found high waisted bikinis to be the best alternative. Although high waisted bikinis tend to have a bit of a retro vibe, they’re so popular because they’re still the most universally flattering swimsuit.

In its newest iterations, the patterns are more modern and less kitschy, the seams are made so they don’t dig into your thighs, and you can choose how much cleavage you like with bandeau, halter and bikini tops. Whether you’re tall or short, the high waisted bottoms help balance your proportions, hugging your curves in all the right ways. Slip into simple black, pastel stripes, tie-dye and more below.
