Last year I wrote a post on how to create your own high-waisted bikini. This post has become one of my favorites and most shared, but a lot of people were curious if there was a no-sew version. So after lots of glue research, I found a way to recreate this look without picking up a needle and thread.
- A one-piece suit (I found mine at Old Navy)
- Fabric glue (I used Loctite)
Step 1: Cut the one-piece suit an inch or two below the underwire.
Step 2: Fold the suit over and use your glue to adhere the fabric in place. If your suit has ruching on the sides you can use binder clips to hold it in place while it dries.
It’s awesome to see this flattering, vintage style becoming more popular and available in stores. If you’re not exactly the crafty type, here’s some of my favorite high-waisted bikinis from the 2015 swim season.
