Women (myself included) spend tons of time and money on finding the perfect bikini top that lifts and supports, but when it comes to bikini bottoms, we swaddle ourselves in limp, lifeless fabric. A bathing suit bottom that's too large is only going to make your butt look big-in-a-bad-way. After years of doing it wrong, I'm happy to have stumbled upon the ruched bikini bottoms at Victoria's Secret.
The way that the fabric gathers in the center helps create a nice, plump shape that actually defines your butt instead of hiding it in a waterproof diaper. And they're mix-and-match, which means you can pair them with that top you spent way too much money on last summer.
