The one-piece is having a moment. No longer is it a practical piece reserved for swimming at the gym or the modest option for covering up as much skin as possible. It’s gotten flirtier and even slightly revealing – we have the Kardashian/Jenners to thank for that! New styles have hit stores with a variety of cuts and colours that give bikinis a run for their style. Whether you’re looking for a retro fit or something a bit more daring, there’s definitely a one-piece for you.


If you’re not quite ready to ditch your two-piece then consider these options, they’re stylish, flattering and remind you that two isn’t necessarily better than one.

This mélange halterneck is flattering and shows off all the right curves. The back tie detail and cut-out give it some unexpected edge.

There’s nothing basic about this black number. We love the crochet texture, low-cut back and double shoulder strap, which take it from athletic staple to carefree and stylish.

Animal print has quickly become a neutral. No longer reserved for the risqué, it looks good with everything. Add a midi skirt and a pair of slides to this swimsuit and you can go straight from the pool to sundowner GnTs.

While already very flattering, the waist-tie on this swimsuit is an absolute game changer. You’ll channel your inner 1950s screen siren – just add a wide brim hat and oversized sunnies.

A one-piece that actually gives you the silhouette you want. The invisible Powermesh in this Magic swimsuit will shave centimeters off your middle and the padded cups add just the right amount of cleavage. No more holding your breath as you exit the pool.
