The bikini has matured since its controversial creation in Paris in the 1940s. There had been two-piece bathing suits for women before, but the bikini was the first to reveal the navel — giving navel-gazing a whole new meaning on the beach. But barely-there string bikinis aren’t for everyone. Plenty of women want to wear a two-piece swimsuit with a bra-style top, but with a bottom that actually has some material on it. That’s where the high-waist two-piece swimsuit comes in. When you don’t want to cover up everything — just a little more than those itsy-bitsy-teeny-weeny bikinis. And this high-waist two-piece bikini list also considers that you don’t want to give away everything — and by that we mean what’s in your bank account. All the suits below are priced under $100.

Yup, the two-piece swimsuit is one fashion circumstance where less isn’t always more — as far as sexy is concerned. Minimalism is fine sometimes, like when it comes to price. But more can be more when it comes to sexy two-piece women’s bathing suits, especially with great flattering designer cuts that accentuate a woman’s curves the way she wants them accentuated.
After the essential flattering fit, research shows the other big consideration when buying swimsuits is the price. Sure, a swimsuit can be high fashion, but most women also like one that’s high value. Above is a widget with 21 high-waisted two-piece swimsuits priced under $100 for women with style.
