Womens one piece bathing suits can transition off the beach too, even spilling into events like drinks or dinner. It all depends how you put them together! 

 

I love a suit that has some standout details like a ruffle or a fun pattern. And the best one piece bathing suits featured below definitely have unique touches. Here are the top traveler-recommended ones for the season!

 

 

Best Flounce One Piece Swimsuit

 

Some of the most flattering one piece swimsuits expose the shoulders in a flirty way, a glamorous look for the summer! These popular picks have a feminine feel that goes beyond mere trends, making them wearable again and again.

This fun off shoulder one piece swimsuit has lovely details such as the ruffle flounce style and the lacy criss-cross front. The straps are also removable so you can change how it looks.

Playing off the “French look”, the suit hugs your figure but is still practical because the padded bra isn’t see-through. Comes in numerous colors and patterns besides this one and in sizes L-22 Plus.

Adorable! The double ruffle one piece swimsuit by Hilor is the very picture of fun in the sun! The asymmetrical look adds interest and it has a stylish, slimming cut that still covers where it counts.

While probably not the best shape for tan lines, this type of suit will still perfectly pair with an outfit. A pareo around your waist for a poolside party is a great choice, for example.

For lunch or shopping during the day, add soft chinos, a cute bag, and strappy sandals to complete your stylish outfit. It’s a feminine and flirty look no matter how you wear it.

These are the best type of suits to mimic regular tops. Try layering under a set of overalls. I love overalls as a young, fun, and casual take on the jumpsuit. 

This white pair would be great for any summer vacation; they instantly spruce up simple tees and are comfortable for long days of wear. Simple slides, stud earrings, and a trendy bag complete the look.

 

Many travelers designate one packing cube just for their swimwear, bras and underwear.

A solid black one piece swimsuit is timeless and body-flattering.  These top selections are great for sunbathing with a good book or secure enough to play in the sand with your kids.

The super-stylish V-neck and mesh inset panels help provide breathability, plus offer a fashion-forward twist. And the bra cups are soft, offering good support.

TFG editor Alex even has a tip, “Nordstrom has many styles of the Miraclesuit but sometimes Amazon has the same styles at a discounted price.” This particular lovely suit is available in sizes 8-16 and in plus sizes, 16-24.
