With Miami’s temperature rising and summer nearly coming to an end, I have begun to get (a little more) creative with my bathing suits. Looking for more vibrant prints and brands I have yet to talk about now forms part of my daily activity.
Today, I bring you this pretty high-waisted bikini from Issa De’ Mar. If you haven’t heard of them (although I am sure most of you have), they are a brand in Hawaii created by two badass friends. This makes me want to go out there and find a new bestie to create cool bikinis with :S Any takers?
My favorite part of the bikini is definitely the print. I feel like the green and the white makes me look tanner than what I really am. I’d also like to confess that contrary to popular belief, I actually don’t tan and 90% of my friends don’t fully believe me, until they see me hiding under the shade at all times.
The top I chose is the Kaili Top. The style is simple and ties with a hook just like some bras, making it easy to wear. This top has a pretty black mesh detail on the middle of the bikini, making it sexy, yet not completely out there.
I would consider the top to run half a size small since I could have definitely gotten away with a Medium. But, hey, I live in Miami and I’d say it is only acceptable to show a little more skin!
It’s been a while since I wore one of these high-waisted bikinis that I had forgotten how freaking good anyone can look in them. This AMAZING bottom is the Harper Bottom. It might look like just a regular high-waisted piece, but I have to say it is absolutely not.
The Harper Bottom is a bit higher than most high-waisted bikinis I’ve written about and it features mesh panel on the sides, which I consider to flatter any body type. One thing I didn’t even notice when I bought it is that this particular bottom is fully reversible to all black-GENIUS!
You can’t forget the cheekiness!
I actually found this piece browsing through Revolve Clothing, however, if they don’t have your size you can go to Issa De’ Mar’s website and might as well check out their other countless options of prints.
If you still don’t own a high-waisted, why not start with this one? I promise you won’t regret it!
Things You Should Know :
Sizing: Top runs half a size small, Bottom true to size.
Comfortable: Love it! Very comfortable.
Wearing: Small top, Small bottom
Material: Stretchy mesh on both pieces.
Recommendations: If you are in between sizes with the top I would say go a size up. The bottom is cheeky but comfortable, any body type can rock this.
