High waisted bikinis have become all the rage in the last couple of years with the comeback of pinup flair. Popping up in places like the Sex and the City movie and high fashion magazines like Vogue, high waisted bikini bottoms have now become a staple of fashion when it comes to beachwear. Now also referred to as "midkini", a high waisted swimsuit is in essence a bottom that comes up to the belly button area instead of sitting lower in the waist. Apart from its fashionable style, high waisted bikinis serve as a great look to hide unflattering imperfections of lower abdomen flab. Some of the newer options for high waisted bikinis include a reversible pattern or ruched waiste which allows the user to bring down the top portion of the bottom and wear it in a more standard way at their preference. A midkini was coined after the very fashionable rib drift trend came about this season. A rib drift bikini is basically a tall high waisted swimsuit that exposed the upper rib cage area and provides a tube top piece above.
