What is a low rise bikini?

A low rise bikini is a type of swimsuit that sits low on the hips and has a lower waistband compared to other styles of bikini. The waistband of a low rise bikini sits below the belly button, exposing more of the hips and upper thighs. Low rise bikinis are often considered to be more revealing and are popular among those who want to show off their lower waist and hips. They are also sometimes referred to as "hipster" bikinis.
