Editor's Notes

July 23, 2020:

One piece bathing suits are popular for various reasons. They're on trend, convenient, can provide full coverage and support, and never seem to go out of style. When compiling options to include on this list, we kept in mind diverse needs women have when searching for such an intimate piece of clothing.

We wanted to make sure we represented traditional styles that appeal to a wide variety of people, like the Smimsivo Ruched Halter, which impressed us with its ability to flatter almost all body types while still being one of the most affordable selections around. We also liked the Miraclesuit Oceanus Polka Dot, another classic cut made specifically for plus-size bodies, and the Speedo Conservative Powerflex, which is an excellent choice for active swimmers.

On the more revealing, feminine side, the Kenneth Cole Plunge Front Metallic caught our eye with its chic lines and elegant fabric, even if it can be a bit itchy. We also loved the Cupshe Ruffled Back Cross, with its bold striped pattern that reminded us of a weekend on the Northeastern Seaboard.

Finally, we felt it was important to offer an outside-the-box option for those who want to cover up completely, whether because of the sun or personal reasons. The Axesea Long Sleeve Rash Guard fits the bill with fun, tropical patterns. If this style is appealing to you, we also suggest checking out the selection on our wetsuits ranking.

Depending on the cut of the suit and personal preference, many women find that swim season is also grooming season. If this is the case for you, our bikini trimmers ranking might be of interest.

Special Honors

J Crew Scallop Ruffle One Shoulder The J Crew Scallop Ruffle One Shoulder is a testament to fine detail, with a modern, asymmetrical neckline, laser-cut eyelets, and bright white lining. While technically machine washable, it's advised that wearers launder by hand to preserve the integrity of the fabric.

Tomboy X 6-Inch Unisuit Gender and size-inclusive, the Tomboy X 6-Inch Unisuit is a nice alternative to more specifically feminine options. Its generous inseam, short sleeves, and high neck provide modesty and protection from the sun, plus it comes in fun prints like shark bites and narwhals.
