Which is better: mid rise bikini bottom or hipster bikini?

This is a common question for anyone who is on the hunt for the perfect swim bottom. If you’re torn between a mid rise bikini bottom or a hipster bikini style, which one should you choose?


One of the best ways to decide is by considering what kind of coverage you want from your swim bottom. Mid rise bikini bottoms tend to sit higher above the hips and closer to your belly button, and its thick band offers more coverage in the front and side of your hips and legs.


Hipster bikini bottoms typically sit low at the hips and have a higher side cut to show off more of the abdomen and leg. Both mid rise bikini bottoms, as well as hipster bikini bottoms, typically offer medium coverage for your bottom, making both of them easy to pair with a swim top because of their versatile cut.


If you would prefer more coverage in the front as well as the side, a mid rise bikini bottom will be a great choice. If you’re a fan of lower cuts that sit at the hips and show off more of your leg, then hipster bikini bottoms are the way to go.
