super market: high waisted bikinis

retro tan lines are so in right now.

by rachael wang

I'm obsessed with high waisted bikinis right now. To be honest, I could do without the weird tan lines but it's a small price to pay for style, no? The awesome thing about this retro shape is that it makes athletic girls appear curvier and hugs curvy girls in all the right places. I prefer to buy these swim bottoms separately and mix with contrasting colored or printed bikini tops.
