8 Chic One-Pieces for Every Body Type
We have yet to meet anyone who actually enjoys shopping for a new bathing suit. And even if you’re finally ready to try an on-trend one-piece, it’s hard to know what style is right for your body type. So we’ve simplified the process for you and rounded up eight that are just as sexy as that skimpy string bikini from your younger years. Girl, you look good.
DEEP V NECK
Best for: Curvy figures
Look for a one-piece with a plunging neckline that draws the eye to the middle (and smallest part) of your hourglass shape.
Get the look: Robin Piccone ($140)
Best for: Tummy tucking and smoothing
You know that scuba suit material? Well, when used in swimwear, it shapes and smooths like no other. And check out how cute and sporty you’ll look.
Get the look: H&M ($30)
Best for: A stick-straight figure
The sweetly curved border flatters athletic bodies especially well and makes even the simplest suit look so elegant. Throw on a sarong and you’re all set for breakfast on your balcony in Mykonos. Take us with you!
Get the look: J.Crew ($350)
BOY SHORTS STYLE
Best for: Muscular thighs
Any kind of boy shorts style—patterned or solid—will make your legs look as slim as ever. And you can run around on the beach all you want without feeling the least bit self-conscious.
Get the look: Lane Bryant ($182)
Best for: A small bust
This complimentary style draws the eye to your shoulders and gives the illusion of a more balanced and proportional figure, especially for those who are particularly petite on top.
Get the look: Lauren Ralph Lauren ($100)
Best for: Arms you’re not totally confident about
Draw attention to your clavicle and shoulders instead. Genius and so chic. This style works wonders for pear-shaped figures, too.
Get the look: Swimsuits for All ($79)
Best for: Long legs
If you’ve got it, flaunt it. And by “it,” we mean length. Rocking this style will give you all the Baywatch vibes.
Get the look: Kulani Kinis ($63)
