The high-cut swimsuit has been dominating for decades, and there's one simple reason for the silhouette's fame: It looks good on everybody. The trick is to learn how to do it best for your body type. Whether you have shorter legs, a less-than-full posterior, or a curvier figure, there is a high-cut bikini or one-piece swimsuit out there for you.

 

Hourglass

Let's start off with the shape that's easiest to style with this trend: hourglass. Your fuller bust, slim waist, and wide hips lend well to this silhouette. Try a statement-making suit that doesn't sacrifice on the details, like high-shine studs and serious sideboob exposure.

Athletic

A sportier body shape can benefit from the curve-enhancing capabilities of this trend. A large cut-out at the front shows off your abs and the wide, tank-style shoulder straps flatter your muscular shoulders. Make sure to go with a super-high-cut so your thighs and backside share the spotlight.

Slender

If you have a slimmer frame, the high-cut suit can create curves exactly where you want them. Go for an all-adjustable bikini with a versatile top and bottom. This triangle bikini top can be scrunched to reveal more at the chest, while the teeny string ties on the bottom can be customized to make it as high-cut as you want it.

Curvy

This figure-flattering silhouette was basically made for curvy bodies. Your thighs and hips are highlighted, expertly showing off your figure. The wide waistband provides the most comfortable fit and sits snugly at the center of your torso. With a cropped bikini top (that doubles as streetwear), this swimsuit will become your favorite yet.

Heart-Shaped

Heart-shaped women can wear this trend, too! All you need are strategically-placed stripes. Utilize this trick with contrasting vertical stripes at the top, which lengthen your torso and slim down your bust. Wide, horizontal stripes at the bottom make your hips appear wider to balance out your bustier silhouette.

Pear

Wearing a high-cut suit as a pear-shaped babe is easy. Look for a moderate high-cut (not the kind that goes to the top of your hips) so your legs are elongated and your figure is balanced. A high-waist also complements your figure and slims down your waistline.
