What is a high waisted bikini?

A high waisted bikini is a type of swimsuit that has high-rise bottoms that sit on the waist, typically at or just below the belly button. The waistband of the bottoms is higher than that of a traditional bikini, providing more coverage of the hips and stomach. High waisted bikinis can come in a variety of styles, including brief-style bottoms, skirted bottoms, and full-coverage bottoms. They may also have matching tops, such as triangle tops, bandeau tops, or crop tops. High waisted bikinis can be made from a variety of materials, including nylon, spandex, and polyester. They are often associated with a retro or vintage look, but can also be found in modern, contemporary styles.
