One Piece Swimsuits

  • As in most items, a simple black swimsuit is going to look amazing and flatter all body shapes. If in doubt this is the color you should choose, however if black isn’t your thing then try other colors, or even color block one or two colors for a sporty look. You should avoid busy prints though, as on the larger surface of a one piece these will be a bit too much
  • Choose a square neckline for a retro, but feminine style. You’ll still show a hint of cleavage, but won’t be letting it all hang out like in a more-revealing bikini.
  • Shoulder straps will give you plenty of support. Straps also offer a look that’s a mixture of athletic and resort, and those with larger busts should simply choose wider straps, as the wider the strap, the more support is given. Also pay attention to the back of the swimsuit as, believe it or not, this also has an impact on the support you’re given. If it’s too high you may feel a little warm and constricted, whereas if it’s too low it won’t be supportive. The best back-line would probably be in the middle of your back, for a good compromise between comfort and support.
  • The high cut one piece, think Pamela Anderson in Baywatch, is NOT the way forward. These days the style you need to go for is the lower cut hipster bottom. This is a flattering and fun touch that’s really stylish right now.
  • Keep the fun going away from the beach! You can actually wear your one piece away from the beach, for instance if you’re going for a spot of lunch. Simply team it up with a short skirt and some strappy sandals for a really chic après beach look.
