Bikinis Beware

One-Piece Swimsuits Are Making a Surprising, Sexy Comeback

BY Catherine Casey // 06.21.16

The one-piece swimsuit is back, and better than ever. The maillot has been reinvented with numerous styles, vibrant prints, and intricate cut-outs. Don’t be blasé towards this style; sometimes one really is better than two.

Why are we interested? This sexy suit flatters any body, flattening your tummy and elongating your legs with its high-cut sides and smooth middle section. The variety of necklines and cut-outs available make it possible for anyone to find their perfect fit. Plus, the one-piece is a fuss-free suit. You no longer have to worry about a red stomach or any accidental exposure.

Some of our favorite styles include a high neckline — featured on Mara Hoffman’s geometric swimsuit and Mikoh’s Avalon halterneck suit — or fun graphic prints, such as the patriotic Star Print swimsuit from Topshop.
