Welcome to our bikini advice column, featuring the hard-earned wisdom of our very own swimsuit master, the Bikini Whisperer. Today, we hear from a gal wondering if the hipster bottom is back — and the Bikini Whisperer has some thoughts. Looking for some advice of your own? Drop us a line!

Hi Bikini Whisperer, 

Will the traditional hip-hitting bikini bottom ever come back in style? I'm not a big fan of the high-cut swimsuits that are super hot right now. I did notice the Miami Swim Week trend report had a few normal-ish bikini bottoms that I could pull off but I'm not 100 percent sure if this is a look that's cool to wear yet. What are your thoughts? 

 

Hey there girl, 

High-leg cuts are totally in (that's for sure), but it doesn't mean hipster bikinis aren't fashionable. If the trend doesn't work for you, there are a million more to try out. Stick to your own personal style and select the pair that fits you best. 

In general, hipsters are not the best idea for a long torso as it will only elongate the midsection and shorten the legs. Hip-hitting bikinis do highlight hourglass shapes and those will longer legs — if this is your bod, then give 'em a try.

If you're not sold on high-cut or high-waist swimsuits, I have good news! After every massive trend, the complete opposite comes soon after. To answer your question quite directly — yes, expect to see hip-sitting bottoms in the near future. Need them now? Check out the best we have in store.
