I’m not sure when one piece swimsuits got such a bad reputation, but I for one think there are plenty of cute, fashionable styles available for women who may not be so comfortable baring it all in a bikini. Not convinced? Check out these 5 one piece swimsuits – one of them may just change your mind.
1. Athleta Bra Cup Halter One Piece Swim Suit
Available in three fashion-forward colors (black, purple and blue) this one piece swimsuit from Athleta is incredibly figure flattering. Underwire straps help with support while the adjustable halter top neckline makes it easy to get a perfect fit any time. Removable padding also makes this suit perfect for small chested girls who want to add a little “oomph” up top!
2. Merona 1-Piece Swimsuit with Rosettes
Easily one of my favorite one-pieces based on looks alone, this adorable suit (available in Dark Slate, Dark Teal and Magenta Purple) features adjustable straps, spandex/polyester materials and decorative rosettes at the bustline. Ruching on the tummy will help hide any imperfections while the deep v-neckline will draw the eye upwards.
3. Esther Williams Beach Blanket Bingo One Piece
This retro-inspired swimsuit features a vivid cherry red hue with white polka dots – totally feminine and oh-so-sweet! A halter neckline, low-cut legs and ruching combine to flatter any figure. Plus sizes are also available. This suit works great for showing off your curves in all the right places – or faking them if you haven’t got any!
4. Tommy Bahama “Pearl” Shirred One Piece Swimsuit
A bandeau-style top allows you to flaunt what you’ve got while a hidden tummy-control panel helps conceal anything you don’t want to show. The cut-out and the bustline and all-over ruching helps draw the eye upwards and away from any flaws. Plus, white looks great with a (faux) tan!
5. Dana Buchman Geometric Halter Swimdress
To help camouflage hips and thighs, turn to this fun swimdress from Dana Buchman. The fun geometric print up top helps highlight your assets while the darker bottom half covers any imperfections. Plus, a built-in shelf bra helps with support.
Now are you convinced that one piece swimsuits can be just as stylish as their two piece counterparts? Which one piece is your favorite?
