And the swimsuit of the season is…. Instagram

There’s one simple way to live like a celebrity this summer. It doesn’t involve hiding from the paparazzi, gaining access to a private jet or vacationing upon a yacht (though those last two wouldn’t be so bad). Instead, simply scoop up a high-cut one-piece, pose for the camera and share your sultry shot on Instagram. Voilà, you’ve basically become Hailey Baldwin…or Kourtney Kardashian…or Bella Hadid.

The swimsuit in question, which features leg holes that are cut high enough to expose your hipbones, has more or less become the swimsuit of the summer. This style is most often associated with Pamela Anderson jogging on the beach in the original Baywatch, but in 2017, the classic ’80s swimsuit has a whole new look. It comes with bows on the shoulders, in wildly sparkling prints and is cut on the hip in varying heights. For those who like to take risks, Minimale Animale has a style that goes all the way to your waist, while brands like Andie offer nearly full coverage, but with all of the leg lengthening properties you desire.

What’s really so great about this swimsuit? Not only does it camouflage the stomach area (so you can easily indulge in a poolside picnic or beachside brunch), but it still has all the sexy allure of a bikini. It’s truly the best of both (sea) worlds.
