Insomniac Sale Picks: High-waisted Bikinis

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Contrary Kiwi requested a few picks for high-waisted bikinis, so here we go:


high waist bikini

Angerella Vintage Polka Dot High Waisted Bathing Suit – was $59.99, now $19.99 – $29.99

This cute suit will be a risk for some since it’s sold as a set, and many of us have different sizes on the top and bottom. But dang it’s cute, and the price is amazing. Most reviewers give it the thumbs up, though checking size charts is essential. Available in this magenta/navy dot as well as cobalt dot, brown dot, navy dot, stripes/red, black/pink dot, and a few variations of red with black and white dots in sizes 4 – 18. Size availability varies by color. This similar style is available in sizes 10 – 24 in black.

Target Tori Praver Seafoam High Waist Bikini Bottom – was $32.99, now $28.04
Target Bandeau Bikini Top Navy Paisley – $19.99 (not on sale)

These two aren’t sold as a set, but they’d look darned cute together and are still a steal when purchased as a set. The top is bra sized, and available in 32B – 38 DD, the bottom comes in sizes XS – XL and is also available in an orange-brown. Target also sells a matching top for the bottoms, but it’s long-line so might not work as a bikini with the high-waisted bottoms on all figures. This similar style is available in sizes 10 – 24.

retro bikini

Unique Vintage Monroe High Waist Bikini Bottom – was $44, now $30.99
Unique Vintage Shirley Bikini Top – was $42, now $15.96

Bad news first: The top is only available in XS right now. The good news: The bottom is available in sizes 0 -18 and could be worn with any number of tops that have tomato red, including this one or this one. (Even full price, this brand is affordable, and Zappos has lots of suits in sizes XS – 4XL.) Great options for those who love a retro look! If you like the look of a shirred bottom but want one a little lower, try this BECCA one.

black high waist bikini

Land’s End Convertible Bikini Bottom – was $45, now $36 – similar plus through 26W
Land’s End Sweetheart Bikini Top -was $49, now $39.20 plus size version
20% off applied when you buy two items, with code GET20, pin 2020

Wanted to include a cute black suit for folks who prefer something subdued. The bottom can be folded down or up for the height of your choice and comes in sizes 2 – 18, and the top is available through a DDD cup size. Plus size options highlighted above with links.

    If you don’t care about sustainable sources, Forever 21 has some really cute, cheap ones too. I just got a black and white gingham check high waisted two piece (I have never been bold enough for a bikini before) for $9 each piece, and it is just so vintage cute!

    This is crazy timely for me because I just had laparoscopic surgery on my lower abdomen, and kinda want to cover the scars as they heal, but I never seem to find a one piece swimsuit that fits ok….

    I got mine at swimsuitsforall, love the quality and choice selection. Also like that simple black high waist!
