Ten of the best swimsuits

Are you searching for that perfect bikini?

Well, we say stop, ditch the two-piece and look at the swimsuit instead. As well as offering a whole lot of support, particularly if you’re planning to get involved with water sports, there’s also a lot more fabric to get fashionable with. Just think of the variations in patterns, cuts and straps.

Still not sure? Check out our pick of ten of the best swimsuits – we think they’re enough to prove that the one-piece can be cool too.
