One pieces are getting more love from swimwear designers this season, though they’ve always been a staple for swimmers and sunbathers! Modern one piece bathing suits that we’ve come to know and love emerged in the 1940’s. Since then, these versatile swimsuits have never really gone out of style. Think Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor in their iconic, retro suits, or the red one pieces featured in Baywatch. The tides of fashion have once again come in for the one piece, and we couldn’t be more pleased!
In terms of comfort, a one piece swimsuit has you covered. With the perfect fit, you don’t have to worry about riding up or adjusting too many straps – you can find a piece that makes you feel brave and ready for any adventure. One pieces also give you to opportunity to try daring trends while still maintaining a chic silhouette. Showing up on the sand in a strappy or low cut one piece is definitely going to make a statement! Take notes from curvy comedienne Mindy Kaling’s one piece style, and rock the look with confidence.
One piece swimsuits are also being influenced by the new Ath-Leisure and Sport Luxe trends that are permeating all areas of design. Surf style and materials are being elevated with prints and flattering designs. Take things to the next level with built-in sun protection and long sleeves – fashionable and functional.
For a classic take on the one piece, look back to the past for feminine styles from the golden age of Hollywood, skirted hems and slimming features like ruching or eye-catching prints. With the one piece having another moment in the spotlight, you really can’t go wrong.
