Perfect for hiding a multitude of sins, they're also really comfortable and a great way to ease yourself into wearing a bikini if you have been a long time one-piece devotee!
Topshop have nailed the retro high waist bikini, offering up their purse-friendly version in a number of colours and prints.
Or if you're feeling flush and fancy snapping up a real showstopper, head to Marysia and Prism where ultra-luxe, sculpting fabrics will ensure you're suitably prepared for a week on the beach.
Bandeau shapes are also set to be big this summer and we love Lisa Marie Fernandez’s colour-block version, complete with nautical button detailing.
If you buy one thing for your new swimwear wardrobe this summer, let it be a brand new piece of swimwear! Shop our edit below which includes the high waist bikini, one piece wonders and the best of the rest bikinis...
