Not since the debut season of ‘Baywatch’ have the words “sexy” and “one-piece” belonged in the same sentence, let alone described the same garment. But this season, sexy one-piece swimsuits are back with a vengeance, and they’re here to dethrone bikinis as the must-have beachwear silhouette of 2022. Personally, I like a lil’ coverage at the beach or pool—of course, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to look sexy AF this summer.
Instead, I’m on the hunt for a suit that shows off only the parts of my body that I love the most, whether that’s a one-shoulder moment to highlight my collarbone, a backless style with coverage for the girls up front or a suit with cutouts at the waist to show off those abs I’ve been working on. Super-hot one-piece styles are everywhere this year—trust me. To make your life a little easier, I’ve rounded up a ton of suits for you to choose from right now from, including ones from all of your favorite swimwear brands. I’m talking about options from Frankies Bikinis, Target, Good American and more.
To sweeten the deal, allow me to present you with a key cost-per-wear pro tip: Throw your favorite one-piece suit on with a pair of high-waisted pants, shorts, or a mini skirt when it’s time for happy hour. Everyone will be complimenting your cute new top in no time. They’ll never know you wore it to the pool just hours earlier—I won’t tell if you don’t.
