10 cute one-piece swimsuits to try if you can't be dealing with bikinis

Hey, we get it.

WHETHER YOU’RE bigger of chest or just not a fan of showing skin, sometimes shopping for a swimswear that isn’t a) four small triangles of fabric or b) a riot of cut-outs, strings, and straps feels like a daunting quest.

But it can be done – and stylishly, too.

1. Callie swimsuit from Joanie Clothing, €33.43

If vintage styles are your thing, Joanie has them by the bucketload – this particular number is available in sizes 8 to 22. Just don’t forget to put suncream in the keyhole cut-out.

2. Laguna Beach swimsuit from Figleaves, £48

If you’re willing to spend a *bit* more, Figleaves has some nice options that, crucially, fit like lingerie. This geometric-print suit is cool, and it has detachable straps.

3. Halter swimsuit from Monki, €25

Simple and cute! Monki also do some gingham, polka dot, and pineapple print ones if you’re feeling more playful.

4. Pink floral plunge swimsuit from New Look, €29.99

Sweet print, halter neck, plunge that doesn’t expose acres of side boob to be managed and wrangled. Pretty good going here, New Look.

5. J by Jasper Conran swimsuit from Debenhams, €62

Debenhams have quite the selection, again at a slightly higher price point – but there’s a sale on until midnight on Monday May 29, so you might score a bargain.

6. Striped swimsuit from Marks and Spencer, €54

Yes, there is a Bang Of Mam off lots of the swimsuits in M&S, but how about this one? She cute! Rosie Huntington-Whitely also has a range of swimwear that is pricier, but extremely glam.

7. Palm print swimsuit from Dunnes, €20

Palm print is on absolutely EVERYTHING this summer, and Dunnes is getting involved with this trendy wee suit. And you can pick it up with your Big Shop.

Forever 21 may be the home of cut outs, straps and strings, but the Plus section has some lovely bits that won’t break the bank. The straight size range also offers some suits with minimal faff (but they are hidden amongst a lot of faff).

9. Floral swimsuit from Zara, €29.95

Zara are notoriously dodgy for sizes, but if you usually get on with them, you’ll enjoy their swimwear range. This one has a sexy lil back.

10. Cobalt swimsuit from Next, €37

Eye-catching, ain’t it? Again, there can be a Bang Of Mam at Next, but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.

You’ve got some swimsuit options, now get out there and enjoy the sun, yis babes.
