It’s peak season for summer vacations, so if you’re still on the lookout for swimwear, think twice before you buy that new bikini. Even though two-piece swimsuits have reigned for decades, one-piece designs have been making a comeback and are currently having a moment. While common wisdom suggests that one-pieces are for ladies who want to hide their bodies, the truth is that they can actually help accentuate various elements of your figure. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up five flattering one-piece swimsuits that will help you stand out this summer — and look your very best.

High Neck

By drawing the eye upwards, the high-neck design works wonderfully well at elongating your torso and making you appear to have a taller stature. This Rudi Gernreich swimsuit is made from sculpting black stretch fabric, and has a low back framed with contrasting white straps, creating an optical illusion of an even more slender frame.

One-Shoulder

For those who want to show a little skin but still feel supported and covered, a one-shoulder design is the ideal choice. We love this Colombian-inspired design on the one by Johanna Ortiz, which features an exotic fronds and jaguar print, as well as a voluminous ruffled sleeve for a playful accent.

Bustier

Much like the fit-and-flare dress, the 50s-style bustier swimsuit will shape and enhance your curves with its moulded cups and supportive underwires, giving your body structure. What’s more? This piece from Tory Burch is made from four-way stretch fabric with SPF50 sun protection, with prints that are carefully placed to flatter your curves.

Halterneck

One of the most flattering designs that complements almost all body types is the halterneck, which gives you a broader shoulder to balance out with your hips. We love this design from Adriana Degreas‘s capsule collection with Cult Gaia, which is covered in tropical prints inspired by Brazil’s landscapes. It also comes with a plunging front and a low back, and is belted and secured with a circle-shaped ring to accentuate the waistline.

Cut-Out

A cut-out design at the waist can easily accentuate your curves. This ‘Veronique’ swimsuit from OYE Swimwear is handmade using shimmering Italian stretch fabric, with a cutout at the waist to give the optical illusion of a smaller waistline.
