The swimsuit top featured a knotted front design while the bottoms were designed with a high-waisted fit. (source)

I thought it meant "a matching piece" but can't be sure because it appears to have some fashion-specific meaning.

Here it means how the clothes were designed and made to fit on the body.

A slim fit jacket

Would be a suit that was designed for a slender person (for the same chest size, the slim fit jacket has a narrower waist.)

In your case the swimsuit is designed to fit high on the waist (and so probably expose more of the leg)

  • ...or exposes less of the midriff.

In this case, "high-waisted fit" means the clothing is worn higher on their waist.
