3 Tips for Picking the Right One-Piece Bathing Suit


As we leave the winter months behind and welcome sunnier days, it’s time to start thinking about lazy days at the beach or pool. Finding the perfect swimsuit can be a bit of a challenge, but that’s what we’re here for. We’ve been hard at work curating a swimwear collection that’s both flattering and fashionable, featuring one-piece styles with just the right coverage. The key to picking the right one-piece bathing suit is going for something comfortable, which makes you feel confident. We’ll go through some of our top tips to help you find the perfect one-piece bathing suit this summer!

Opt for Flattering Visual Details

One of the best tips for picking out the right one-piece bathing suit is to look for visual details. Many small elements in swimsuits make them flattering, such as ruching around the tummy area or patterns or designs that draw you in visually at the waist. Because everyone has a different body shape, it’s often hard to figure out what visual details are most flattering for you.

For example, an A-line style like the Boa Blues Tankini is a great choice if you’re looking for something that’s flattering and offers a lot of coverage. It includes details like the Powermesh panel for shaping and support to make it a better fit without losing comfort.

If you’re looking for coverage and something more slimming, a style like the Must Haves Marais Swimsuit is perfect since it has a twist-front design to cinch the waist. Our Penbrooke Twist Colorblock Swimsuit features another twist on the twist…with a slimming design that provides excellent coverage.

Pay Attention to Necklines

A flattering swimsuit often comes down to necklines. While body shape and coverage vary, a good neckline is not just flattering but provides the right level of support and comfort to make you feel amazing every time you put on your one-piece. That’s why our latest swimwear line features a wide range of necklines and styles to ensure there is something for everyone.

One of our top choices for a flattering neckline would be the Amoressa Marquina Moonraker Swimsuit, featuring bold back straps to create a square-neck and square-back silhouette. It’s a simple yet sleek cut that provides excellent support and coverage.

Scoop necklines are also super-flattering. Like the Longitude Palm in Palm Swimsuit. Bonus: It has a built-in Powermesh panel to smooth and slim your tummy.

Caftans + One-Piece Swimsuits = Perfect Pair

Caftans are a fun and chic way to complement your one-piece, and experiment with different styles this season. You can get matching caftans to go with your one-piece or mix and match to create a distinctive look. Caftans add a great amount of coverage to your poolside or beachside outfit while still looking stylish and effortless.

If you’re ready to try different types but still want some additional coverage, pair your swimsuit like the Penbrooke Twist Colorblock Swimsuit with stylish caftans like the Dusk Bloom Caftan Swim Coverup for an elegant look. We love matching looks that make a splash at the pool, beach, or lake, like the Gottex Midnight Light Bandeau Swimsuit with the Gottex Midnight Light Caftan Coverup. Bold color palettes with slimming styles and details like stripes help bring the look together and elevate your one-piece swimsuit to a more cohesive look.

Picking out the right one-piece bathing suit is ultimately about finding a style that makes you feel incredible every time you put it on. Some of the staples of any good bathing suit will include the right level of support and coverage for your body, but it’s also about the little details that help pull together the look. That is why it’s so important to experiment and try different styles – this is your summer, so make it the best one yet by trying something new!
