High legged swimwear, it's crept it's way back in and now we have a choice to make, do we embrace the hype with open arms or stay loyal to our hipster briefs? The claim is they create a longer sexier line, define the waist and lengthen the leg but are they really that flattering? We think you have to have a few squats in the bank before you can truthfully answer yes to that question. Thing is, while a high leg panty might have looked heavenly on Baywatch, if you can pinch an inch, you're in trouble. If the Eric Prydz video taught us one thing, it's to book yourself in for a hollywood and get down to zumba before you dive thigh first into this one.
