8 one-piece swimsuits you need

We may not be jetting off anywhere imminently, but a one-piece swimsuit is still a summer stalwart that's seriously worth the investment.  Flattering, practical and eternally chic, they've fast become the beach/park/back garden outfit of choice. This year, opt for statement prints, low backs and some on-trend sporty numbers that will look just as good under midi skirts or worn with a pair of denim cutoffs as they would have done in the pool.
