2020 Swimwear Trend: High Leg Bikini

Nothing makes a woman look sexier that a nice set of long, lean legs.  That’s why the high leg swimsuit is one of my favorite swimwear trends, and it’s back with a vengeance this year.  A high leg suit is a great option for anyone who wants to make their legs appear longer and sexier.  With four bikini bottom styles and two one piece swimsuits in the new collection, each available in multiple prints and solids, Guria has you covered with this trend.  Check out the style options below.  And don’t forget, your favorite high leg bikini bottom can be paired with any Guria Brazilian bikini top, because each piece is sold separately.
Tassels High Leg One Piece
If you’re an 80’s baby, you’re definitely familiar with the show Baywatch.  The beautiful beach blonde Pamela Anderson’s character CJ Parker, arguably the most attractive female lifeguard in history, made the high leg one piece swimwear famous in the 1990’s and a huge fashion trend.  The series ran from 1989-2001 and every teenage girl dreamed of being CJ Parker, at least once.  Not only was she beautiful, but CJ also was living what we would call today “her best life” -  that California beach lifestyle…and it doesn’t hurt that all the boys chased her ;) We think this suit looks best in our solids, but there is a color to suit every girl.  This high leg one piece swimsuit is a tank style suit with a cut out back, fun tassels at the hips and scrunch on the rear.  It is available in all the Bossa Nova Colors which are Shimmer Blue, Shimmer Tan, Rose Gold, Black, Navy and Light Olive.  For an even sexier look, choose the Brazilian Cut.  This swimsuit is suitable for perkier girls, with smaller cup sizes.
Underwire One Piece
The Underwire One Piece swimsuit is a perfect one piece for any body type.  A classic maillot, with a high cut leg, it accentuates the length of the leg.  Additional features like the sleek, smooth mid- section help to hide small imperfections that we all have.  The back of the suit is open with a clasp, bra style closure and adjustable shoulder straps.  My favorite feature is the underwire bust line that lifts and separates.  Perfect for larger cup sizes that need that extra support.  This suit is available in one print, the Cadaques, which is a multi-color modern leopard print in light olive, brown, apricot and off-white.  This one piece is also available in the same solids of the Bossa Nova collection as the one Tassels high leg one piece previously discussed.
Deep V Bikini Bottom
The deep v-bikini bottom is classy and elegant.  It sits high on the hip but dips down low in the front, below the navel and also in the back, at the lower spine with a cross over that has gentile ruching.  The style is also ruched at the upper part of the hip.  This Brazilian bikini bottom is available in American or Brazilian bikini cut in all of the colors of the Bossa Nova Collection listed above, plus Marbella Print, Cadaques, Formentera, Las Salinas and Lazarote.
Ruffle High Leg Bikini Bottom
The Ruffle High Leg Bikini Bottom is a super sweet style that is high on the leg, dips down low in the front below the navel and runs straight along the back.  It has a ruffle detail in the hip area that’s fun and flirty.  This bottom is also available in all colors of the Bossa Nova Collection plus Ibiza print which is a shimmer yellow background with periwinkle blue dots, and La Palma print which is a delicate floral in hues of pale purplish pink and green on a white background. I love the way this style pairs with the Ruffle Trim Bandeau or the Reversible Ruffle Trim Triangle top.
Tie Side Bottoms
One of the great things about tie-side bikini bottoms is that they are quite adjustable.  You can tie them a bit tighter to wear low around the hips or you can tie them up on an angle above the hip to give that illusion of a longer leg.  They are also very forgiving on those days when you feel like you need to wear something a bit looser.  That’s why Guria’s tie sides are a notable mention in the category of high leg bikini bottoms.  In the 2020 Summer Somewhere Collection, Guria offers three types of tie side bottoms: The Multi-strings tie side which comes in all of the trendy Bossa Nova colors.  It has a row of strings as a trim across the front from hip to hip and they tie at the hip with fun tassels that dangle.  The Reversible Scrunch Tie Side and the Scrunch tie side are the same cut, however, the textured pique solids and the ribbed bottoms are not reversible because of the texture.  But the textured bottoms have gromets which make them more fun to wear! Both reversible and non-reversible feature scrunch in the back to lift and shape your bottom to perfection, whether you wear them high or low on the hip.  The reversible scrunch tie side is available in the Marbella, Cadaques, Majorca, Menorca, Formentera, Las Salinas, Lazarote and Canadell print groups.  The Scrunch Tie Side is available in Piqué Collection in Sky Blue and Apricot and the Shimmer Ribbed collection in Black, Coral Pink, Yellow and Off White.
