We’d like to take this opportunity to write a love letter to the one-piece bathing suit. Once regarded as “frumpy,” we’re happy to see that those days are long gone. Today’s one-pieces are not only flattering, giving us the coverage we want while making us look damn good while we’re at it, but also offered in an endless amount of cuts, prints, and patterns.
But what really makes them truly incredible? How, ever so seamlessly, they can take you from day to night, doubling as the perfect bodysuit to pair with your favorite breezy skirts, wide-leg trousers, or denim cutoffs post-swim. Talk about a true wardrobe staple! We plan on living in them all summer long—and now that beach season is here, it’s time to stock up.
As we don’t believe that swimwear should ever break the bank (just think of how often it will be thrown in the wash!), we rounded up the cutest numbers we could find under 100 bucks. Check out our picks of the season, below. Your bank account will thank you for it.
