Ultra high-waisted bikinis with strapless tops are one of my favorite go-to styles for swimwear. Not only is it a classic and elegant combination, it’s also an incredibly flattering silhouette – and at the end of the day, don’t we all just want to feel comfortable and beautiful in our swimwear?

Today I’m rounding up some of the fun, colorful high-waisted swimwear options that I’ve been eyeing lately. I’ve been especially drawn to animal print, exaggerated high-waisted bottoms, and pops of neon. Because a high waist bottom has more fabric than usual, I typically opt for a strapless top for visual balance and to keep the outfit still looking fresh and while minimizing bulkiness.

This exact bikini I’m wearing is no longer available in this color way, but it is still available here in leopard print and stunning. If you haven’t seen it already, hop over to my IG @carolyncarter to watch my reel showing 4 of my favorite swimsuits in this featured style!
