Ever since I had my son, and then daughter, I’ve been a fan of one-piece swimsuit styles. What mom has not thought that right after giving birth, am I right? I will completely admit that when I was younger I used to think that one-piece swimsuits were not stylish. I was so wrong. Now I see one-piece swimsuits as a way to be stylish on the beach, especially with all the styles to choose from. Thinking Rita Hayworth or Marilyn Monroe, or even Jennifer Lopez when I envision the beauty of a one-piece for a vacation (staycation, really) by the beach. So, I am sharing my 6 favorite one-piece styles that I love to wear for summer.
With less of a desire to be laying under the sun without shade these days, I’m not so concerned with tan lines by wearing a one-shoulder swimsuit. I love that I can wear it as a top with a skirt of shorts to walk along the boardwalk too.
The Low Back
Just like a low-back dress, there is something elegant with a hint of sexy with a low-back swimsuit. Love that the long stripes on this one-piece add length to my petite frame as well.
The Strapless One-Piece
Classic and classy, the strapless one-piece swimsuit (featured) is my sunbathing favorite. No tan lines, and I love that it makes a perfect outfit when paired with a maxi skirt or linen pants. I’m partial to a ruched swimsuit (seen featured above) too because of the gathered material effect that keeps everything cinched.
The Deep V-Neck
Definitely a hint of sexy, while still keeping it all together, a deep v one-piece swimsuit is the perfect style for the transition from day to night and also for just lounging in the hot tub on vacation.
The Halter Neck
A halter neck one-piece swimsuit is great to showcase your shoulders and draw the eye upwards towards your face. I love this style best to go swimming in while still feeling stylish.
The Off the Shoulder
You know those days when you just want sit poolside, dip your toes in, but not really go for a swim? That’s when I love to wear a pretty off the shoulder like this one.
Which is your favorite style of one-piece swimsuits? Loved the post? Share it with a friend! Thank you for reading!
I love this breakdown and your picks! I forget how versatile swimsuits can be, wearing it both and off the beach/pool!
I am so on the same page as you! I used to think that one-pieces were not stylish, but now I love them! There are so many fun options and I’m so thankful for that.
I love the suits you’ve picked out here — the one shoulder one looks incredible on you! x
I had a severe dislike for one-piece swimsuits when I was younger, because I was “forced” to wear them, for modesty’s sake, as a child. I have a ridiculously long torso, and they were always SO painful. As I got a little older, they were even less popular, so it was harder to find ones that fit me properly. However – as an adult, I love them. There are so many options for them now, because they’re trendy again, and I can even find ones specifically suited for long torsos, which is fantastic. I find them really flattering and chic. The pieces picked out here are fabulous!
I love one piece bathing suits, they are super sexy and more stylish than a two piece. I love the laced up black one piece! You look amazing in every swimsuit❤️
Such great choices!! And thanks for the reminder that you can wear it as a top. I need to do that more often. I love how varied your selections were from daring to classic. So fun!
