QQ: Are high-waisted swimsuits in style rn?

Definitely! High-waisted swimsuits don’t ever go out of style—full stop. And yes, high-waisted swimsuits will look good on you, no matter your height, body type, or personal style! Thanks to Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly, the style first dominated throughout the ’50s until the late ’70s. (Speaking of retro vibes, if you’re into high-waisted and one-piece vintage swimsuits, you’re going to love these.) High-waisted swimwear made a major comeback in the early 2000s and we don’t foresee this trend going anywhere anytime soon.
