These Tiny High Waist Bikini Bottoms Are Set To Be Trending This Summer
High waist 'drawstring' bikini: Bizarre look set to trend this summer
These ultraskimpy, high-waisted “drawstring” bikini bottoms are sweeping Instagram — leaving little to the imagination, and requiring some serious bikini upkeep.
Thanks to the swimsuit’s skinny strap and the way the fabric is bunched up, the internet has dubbed it the “loincloth bikini”.
Supermodels Elsa Hosk and Emily Ratajkowski are frolicking in the sexy look, which shows off everything from their hip cleavage to their so-called “Toblerone tunnels”.
Some creative directors for Melbourne-based swimwear labels said when it comes to bikinis “higher is better”.
“Everyone wants to show off side boobs, butts and hips. The Kardashian shape has really come back into our culture, and this design really elongates the leg — meaning the wearer looks taller and slims out the thigh as well.”
While the sky-scraping bottoms may be a little daunting, it’s apparently the cut every woman should at least try — because “it flatters almost every shape”.
Roxane Uzureau, a head designer of a Sydney-based swimwear brand said the design does wonders for the silhouette of the wearer.
“Anyone can pull off a high-waist or high-cut look, because it will compliment any figure,” Ms Uzureau said.
“This design has an optical illusion that draws the eyeline to the waist, and because your waist will always be smaller [than the hips] it gives the optical illusion of looking slimmer overall.”
Tarzan chic, anyone?
