* Edited for Summer 2017*

One-piece swimsuits are still trending, thank goodness! Just like clothing, swimsuits should be flattering, and if I'm being honest here, Gisele B. might be able to pull off strutting down the beach in a thong but I'm not about to do that. There are so many different styles of swimwear out there now which means we can find styles that flatter the parts of our bodies we want to show off and leave a little something to the imagination for those we don't. Confidence is a girl's best friend and having a suit that you feel good in is going to make your time poolside that much more enjoyable!

[PS I just purchased this one and I L-O-V-E it!]

One Piece Swimsuits to buy for summer

Finding a one piece swimsuit that fit just right is a commitment. Before you shop, think about what parts of your body you want to show off and peruse Pinterest or the internet for styles before heading to the mall that way you'll have an idea of what you're looking for before you head out into the swimsuit jungle.  I have friends that will order several styles online - this is a great idea especially when sites have free shipping if you spend over a certain amount and free returns - because you can try them on at home vs. in the glaring fluorescent change room lights (not even Bey looks good in that lighting). If you are hitting the shops, wear something easy to slip on and off so you aren't deterred from trying suits on because it's a pain in the ass to get your outfit on and off ;)
