A one-piece bathing suit hasn’t been synonymous with “frumpy” for quite some time. In fact, chic, trendy one-pieces are more on-trend than ever, and we’ve got your complete guide for finding the perfect fit.

Whether you’re more comfortable in a one-piece, or you just like the way they look, there’s a lot more to these suits now. These are definitely not your mother’s one-pieces. Whether you want a suit with a figure-flattering retro flair or an unexpected silhouette, all of them offer plenty of comfort and support.

The options are endless, but we’ve chosen a few of our very favorites below, so see which one catches your eye!

Cupshe Ruffled Lace-Up Monokini

The Cupshe Ruffled Lace-Up Monokini has a forgiving enough cut for any body type, but without being overwhelming or frumpy. Who says more coverage can’t be just as cute?

It’s a stylish, well-cut one-piece with a loosely ruffled neckline and ruffles going up the sides of thick shoulder straps. The slight ruching on the sides and stomach and a low V-neck offer just the right mix of coverage and summer skin.

Sporlike Ruffle Monokini

Pick up the Sporlike Ruffle Monokini for a floral print one-piece with a ruffled neckline and shoulder. This suit features a super-deep V in the front, with a connecting piece and tie back for a keyhole look. It also includes light, removable padding in the bust.

You can choose from a variety of colors and patterns, including bright and neutral solids and a variety of summery prints with tropical vibes.

Hilor One-Shoulder Monokini

The Hilor One-Shoulder Monokini is an asymmetrical, one-shoulder one-piece with a bit of ruffling for a stylish look that’s definitely far from frumpy. The one-shoulder look gives it a slightly unique silhouette, and it comes in a ton of colors and patterns, from bold solids to playful, pretty prints.

This suit also provides full, comfortable coverage from the torso down, but with just the right details to make you feel confident and chic.

Hilor Front Crossover Swimsuit

The crossover details at the waist and neck give the Hilor Front Crossover Swimsuit its unique look. It turns a typical solid or patterned one-piece into a cute halter-neck style. This breaks up the block look at the waist with narrow bands, creating an almost two-piece illusion.

You can choose from over 40 different color combinations and patterns to suit any style preference!

Joyaria Retro Swimsuit

For a 1950s look, pick one of the cute patterns or colors in this ruched, stylish suit. The design of the Joyaria Retro Suit features sturdy straps, gently molded cups, and mesh to create a smooth silhouette that’s both comfortable and timelessly fashionable.

With slight gathering in the bust and an almost sweetheart neckline, it has all the retro vibes you want with the comfort of a modern suit.

B2prity Front Cross Swimsuit

The B2prity Front Cross Swimsuit is a two-section swimsuit with a flattering crossover bodice and sleek bottom section. It comes in a variety of two-part patterns, mixing and matching several different solids, stripes, polka dots, and floral patterns.

Plus, it features the true holy grail of swimsuits: adjustable straps!

Cupshe Strappy Deep V-Neck Swimsuit

The ruffled shoulders of the Cupshe Strappy Deep V-Neck Swimsuit add a girly touch, perfectly offsetting the sleek, super-deep V-neck. There’s also a cute tie in the back and a small bit of colored cord across the torso in the middle of the V.

This creates a little more detail and breaks up the visual lines of the deep-cut V-neck in front. You can choose from several different solids, plus a handful of summery floral prints.

Cocoship Pinup Monokini

The Cocoship Pinup Monokini is a retro-inspired suit with several adorable little details that really elevate it. It features some subtle, curved ruching along the bust for a crisscross look, plus a flattering halter neck.

The tummy area is slightly ruched and the back is sleek and solid. With selections in a few solid colors and polka-dot patterns, it’s the perfect choice when you want just a hint of retro flair without going full-on 1950s.

Holipick Off-Shoulder Swimsuit

Made more for lounging than serious swimming, the Holipick Off-Shoulder Swimsuit has removable or adjustable thin straps. The off-the-shoulder ruffle makes a real statement and creates a unique, flowy look.

The simple, unfussy bottom half allows the stylish top to take center stage, whether you choose a basic solid color or a vibrant tropical print, it’s a silhouette that’ll definitely stand out at the beach or pool!
