Introduce an immediate sense of retro glamour and siren sex appeal into your holiday closet with a pair of high-waisted bikini bottoms. Chic, feminine and flattering, these are a welcome alternative to barely there string bikinis, that promise to flatter curves or give the illusion of them. Bold patterns are playful and fun, or keep it simple in a pair of block coloured bottoms. Peter Som's exude a sophisticated and elegant femininity, or try swimwear brand, Seafolly, for a high quality yet affordable selection. ASOS, on the other hand, do everything from bright patterns to frivolous embellishments.
