How to Make Your Legs Look Longer in a Swimsuit


High-waisted bikini bottoms nip at the smallest part of your torso to highlight your curves, and scalloped edges give your booty a boost. But when it comes to your legs, there's one swimsuit silhouette that will lend you some length: the high-leg cut. It's exactly like you're picturing: fabric that curves upward right above your thigh, adding inches at the highest point of your stems, right below the hips.
