Karla Spetic is the ring leader of this trend. Her SS09/10 collection featured heavily high waisted big bottomed swimwear. Her designs were by far the prettiest and came in lovely pastel shades and prints that will definitely lure many a girl to follow this trend against their better judgement. Sara Phillps and Illionaire were also champions but chose darker more flattering (if that is possible) shades.
Please don't get me wrong on this one. I love the idea of this trend and fell in love with Karla's designs but I can just see this one playing out badly. Girls beware!
