Chic, comfortable swimwear.

If you don’t have a one piece in your swim collection this year, you’re seriously missing out. Wearing a one piece no longer has to mean you’re diving in the pool to swim laps or averse to showing skin; the one piece is making a comeback in a variety of cuts, colors, shapes, and sizes. And there’s a style that will work for everyone.

Here, I’m wearing the High Leg One Piece in Cloud Tie Dye from Victoria’s Secret Pink (and it’s on sale right now! Plus, check out my Round Metal Gold Ray-Bans). Tie dye is one of my favorite prints, and the shells were just too cute and quirky for me to pass up. Who doesn’t want to feel like a mermaid? A lot of people are going to be out on the beach or at the pool in their one pieces this year, so it’s important to choose one that has a little “wow factor” to set yourself apart.

Where can you find fashionable one pieces? If you’re like me, spending a lot of money on fast fashion isn’t exactly you’re cup of tea. Luckily, there are some awesome places that have great swim suits that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Victoria’s Secret PinkPacSun, and Forever 21 all have tons of options under $50.

Swimwear for any body, literally.

The great thing about one-pieces is that they work for any shape or size.

  • Girls self conscious about their midsection should try this one-shoulder one peice by Miraclesuit– it has you covered…literally.
  • Girls who have broad shoulders, take a look at this crochet one piece by Becca with over-the-shoulder straps to balance your proportions.
  • If you’re nervous about broad hips try on this halter one piece by Ted Baker London to accentuate your shoulders and even everything out.

wear it: the tall girl & the aspiring tall girl

My favorite thing about one-pieces is that not only do they work for any body type, but also for all heights. Plus, the trick for styling them is simple, easy, and the same for tall and short women. Choosing a suit with a high cut leg will highlight your long legs if you’re tall, or will give the illusion of a longer leg if you’re shorter. This L Space Ricki One-Piece Swimsuit is perfect for any height– its cut outs will extremely elongate anyone who wears it!


Be sure to find yourself a one-piece, and fast! Stores are starting to put their swimsuits on sale, so this is the perfect time to get a cheap one.

Happy swimming!
