As mentioned in this post, I was recently gifted a high waisted bikini from SwimSpot and with our trip last week, I had the opportunity to wear it in Santa Barbara. The boyfriend was on the fence at first, but after wearing it, he’s changed his mind. Obviously, I’m sure he favors the less is more here (what guy doesn’t?), but he no longer hates it. Some of you had mentioned you had too much junk-in-the-trunk or too wide of hips to try the high waisted brief, but I actually think it helps in those areas and will accentuate your cinched waist. If you want to try it, but are scared, I say go for it in black. It really is a great bottom to lounge around in and you can kinda get away with eating as much as you want =)

I’m such a fan, I think I may have to get this one next!
