retro bathing suitsI understand the ideology behind it.  You’re thinking, “This bad boy is going to hide my FUPA and minimize my muffin top.”  Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news (no, I don’t), but the only thing a high waisted bikini is going to do is emphasize all the flaws you seek to hide.  Not to mention, most retro suits have much lower cut legs, which will only make your stems appear stumpier.  Basically, you’re like one big walking pelvis.  The only thing worse than this beach look from the front, is how it looks from behind.  Talk about long ass.

But should you care to partake in the trend, here are a few suits that will keep you on par with your favorite stars.
