I, like a lot of women, assumed that I couldn't wear a bikini. After all, I have had four kids, and I have my fair share of problem spots. However, after seeing plenty of brave bloggers try it out, I decided to give it whirl myself. And much to my surprise, a high waisted bikini looks much better than I thought. The top draws the eye up. The bottom comes up high enough to hide any figure flaws. And the bottom hits lower on the hip, so it is not too revealing at all. Add in the fun, vintage look and this bathing suit is perfect.
This bathing suit can be found here on Amazon
The bottom of this bathing suit features a black background with white polka dots. It comes up very high, past the natural waist. It has ruching on the side. This is not only very flattering, it also means that if you push the top of the bottom down, so that it fits better, it does not look funny. The gathered fabric just looks like part of the ruching.

I ordered this in a medium, which is what I normally wear. It fits me well. It is sewn with flatlock seams, which are very durable. The seams are straight and even with no hanging threads. It seems to be of decent quality, but I have only tried it on.
