Bikinis are all well and good, but for 2014's sunny season fashion can't be bothered with tops and bottoms. Bits tend to get lost in transit plus there's always a chance you may flash the most sartorially incorrect thing of sartorially incorrect things: underboob.
River Island is your go-to if you like bandeaus in bright colourways, Topshop has some retro halter-necks and H&M has mastered the cut-out trend, plus it stocks a stunning striped one-shouldered style for £19.99 that sums up summer-chic.
If you've got a bigger budget to spend and you want a designer one-piece, take a look on Net-a-Porter and Farfetch.com. However, if you're really just looking for a style with additional support, underwire, padding and tummy control (amazing) then check out brands like Figleaves, Marks & Spencer and Boden.
Take a look through this shopping edit for some one-piece inspiration. Don't knock them until you've tried them...
