Now this is a trend we can get behind – forget baring it all in a two-piece bikini this summer, one-piece swimwear is officially hot, hot, hot! Of course, wearing a one-piece doesn’t mean you’ve got to cover it all up. This summer one-piece swimwear is sexy, stylish, and daring. Here are 5 of our favourite one-piece bathing suit picks for summer.

Pretty in pink:

A floral affair!
