After an extremely hot week, I’m ready to live in a swimsuit for the rest of the summer! I’ve never really been one for bikinis–though I’ve tried many over the years, I’ve always returned to my trusty one-pieces. A good one-piece is hard to find (apologies to Flannery O’Connor). Below are five of my favorites!
I love the classic silhouette and pattern of this Tory Burch one-piece–slimming and flattering all at once! As well, it offers a good amount of coverage and support, and comes in my favorite navy and white colorway. It’s definitely a splurge, but if you’re at the beach or poolside all summer, it might be worth it! $228 via Shopbop.
Marysia, with its iconic scalloped edges, was the brand that launched a thousand imitations. The swimsuits, including the Palm Springs Maillot, are pricey, and are more fashion pieces than activewear. Nevertheless, they are certainly beautiful! $345 via Shopbop.
I’ve loved Summersalt’s offerings since I first heard of them a few summers ago. At $95, their suits are affordable and stylish. The Sidestroke is so cute and looks practical as well as comfortable! I love their variety of colorways. $95 via Summersalt.
J. Crew’s 1989 Scoopback One-Piece is my all-time favorite swimsuit. It’s simple but wildly flattering, and definitely the most comfortable suit I’ve ever worn. I’m so glad they brought it back! $98 via J. Crew.
This & other stories swimsuit is very similar to one from J. Crew last year. I love the v-neck and the detailing in the front. $65 via & other stories.
