High waisted bikini bottoms are a must for me, to cover-up my jiggly belly. I usually favour a pair of black, slightly ribbed American Apparel bottoms, but these banana leaf-print beauties blow them out of the water, quite frankly.

The bandeau bikini top is the perfect accompaniment - and as an added bonus - the straps are detachable, meaning tan lines can be easily avoided.

They're available here for £34 on Topshop.com, where there are quite a number of ecstatic reviews from happy customers. The review system is a very useful one when ordering online, as these reveal that they are a small fit, with most recommending people to size up for a better fit.

Unfortunately they are only available in a size 6 and 8 for the time being, so unless they come back in stock I will have to admire from afar. Sob.
