On the hunt for a flattering bikini cut?

Kelsey Merritt might just be the ultimate authority on looking good in a swimsuit. Well, having modeled for the likes of Victoria's Secret and Sports Illustrated, (no biggie!) the stylish 24-year-old can probably don a pillowcase and still make it work!

In many of her bronzy seaside photo-ops, we noticed that Kelsey swears by a staple garment: the high-cut bikini. She has them in several colorways, too, and we can definitely see why. This bikini style is just so flattering—when worn right above the widest point of the hips, it can create the illusion of a narrower waist and longer legs. Still need more convincing? Once you check out Kelsey's demos below, you'll want in on this, too! 

Here's how Kelsey Merritt wears high-ciut bikinis:

1. Keep it sleek, chic, and oblique with a skinny black bikini.
