High-waist bikinis are a hot holiday essential, so we've rounded-up the best ones out there...

High-waist bikinis are no longer frumpy and boring – for this summer this figure-flattering two piece is set to be the hero style for the beach and we couldn’t be happier.

Not only are high-waist bikinis perfect for hiding a multitude of sins, but comfort-wise they are high up there in the style stakes. And for those long-time one-piece devotees
, they are a great way to ease yourself in to taking on the bikini.

Chosen carefully, the high-waist design can accentuate your curves, define your waist and make your legs appear longer, resulting in you feel super-stylish all summer long. And the good news? You really don’t need to spend a fortune if you want to get your hands on this chic, new-season style.

Try Lisa Marie Fernandez for standout designs, cool shapes and quirky details. Marysia has nailed the cool black high-waist bikini, whilst H&M offers up their purse-friendly version of fun bikini essentials that won’t break the bank.

Those of you who want to do a few laps in the pool should try Flagpole’s graphic, sports-style two-piece, ideal for the more active bikini-wearer.

And, should you be feeling flush and wanting to snap up a real showstopper, head to Missoni and Prism, where ultra-luxe, sculpting fabrics and undoubtedly cool designs will ensure you’re suitably prepared for a week on the beach.

Graphic shapes seem to be so in for this summer. We’ve fallen for Solid & Stripe’s multicolour stripe version. While those with a bigger bust should look to Topshop, where moulded cup tops provide plenty of support, without compromising on style.

And if you’re not quite ready to trade in your string bikini, try Adriana Degreas for its lace up detailing and pool-perfect printed briefs.
