One piece swimsuits are the most common and original swimsuits since the 18th century. The intended purpose is to cover mainly the breasts, the stomach, the crotch and the butt.
Women's classic one-piece has two straps and a scoop neck. Styles may vary to show more of the chest (like a plunging v-neck), or the back area. There are so many styles, but here are the basic variations that the one-piece offers.
I've chosen some cute one piece swimsuits and reviewed them for you to see. Follow the link below.
Classic One Piece
Halters have a sexy retro look! Halter style one piece swimsuits have straps that tie around the neck and attach to the front of the swimsuit by the chest. This adds instant lift and support for your bust! And these are very sexy since the leave the back bare.
Blouson One-PieceThis bathing suit has a little bit more. A loosely fitted cling-free tank top that ties at the waist and the bottom is like a classic one piece. Some have a built-in soft-cup bra. This is to create an effect of making a tummy disappear or minimizing a large chest. This is particularily good for apple shaped bodies.
A SheathA see through swimsuit top over a classic one piece swimsuit. Drapes over the front upper thighs, but not the back. Looks like a mini dress from the front. Perfect for belly coverage.
Boy leg One-Piece
This swimsuit’s coverage extends down to the upper thighs like bike shorts but all in one piece. This swimsuit offers support for jiggly thighs or for those who are curvier on the bottom. Good for jogging on the beach!
A surplice style one-piece has a separate piece that drapes over on top and cross the bust area. Like a half horizontal wrap that blends into the mid section of the swimsuit. Think of a Japanese kimono...this blending helps minimize and hide the stomach. Also it gives the one-piece bathing suit a sophisticated look.

Skater Skirt One-Piece

Another retro classic! A bandeau is strapless bathing suit and has pleated fabric that gathers in the middle. Many bandeau swimsuits come with straps that you may attach in different styles if you prefer. Halter, spaghetti straps, or criss-cross!
Athletic One-Piece Swimsuits
Racer-back one piece swimsuits allow full flexibility of the arms and non-intrusion with swimming movement. This explains why athletes and Olympic swimmers all wear this style.
A good test is to do full rotations (circles like you’re swimming) with your arms with your one piece on. Do your shoulders brush against the bathing suit at all? Or does it limit your movement? Test out different racer-back swimsuits until you’ve found one that you’re really comfortable with.

Which body type fits One Piece Swimsuits best? One piece bathing suits are best fitted for Hour Glass, Apple, Round and Pear shaped women. Click the link at the bottom of the page if you're not sure what body type you have.
One piece swimwear is especially perfectly tailored for women with a gut. Since the one piece covers the breasts and the butt area all together, this will accentuate or show more of your curves around that area (and not your stomach). One piece swimsuits can hide your stomach and in fact, make it look flatter.
Two piece swimsuits have elastic or string around the waist that can squeeze up your stomach making it look larger or fatter than it really is...not very flattering.
Here’s a good example:
One piece swimsuits are also recommended for any woman who has a bust size larger than a C cup. They offer more support and your breasts won’t sag. Many one-piece swimsuits come with a bra cup size or underwire so they offer full support in your size!

If you’re a curvy or full figured woman, you make the one piece swimsuits sexy. You’re so lucky because so many slender and tall women don’t have the curves to fill out that style. You don’t necessarily need to show more skin to be sexy, here’s an example:
If you have small breasts, you can try a swimsuit with removable pads that make you one size larger or give you some cleavage. These styles are becoming more and more popular as women want to achieve a bigger bust without the expensive and complicated surgery.
I definitely advise every woman should have a one-piece swimsuit handy. Why? Because more often than not, two piece swimsuits are not good if you’re planning to do some kind of activity like swimming or diving.
Picture this: you jump off the diving board into the deep end of the pool…when you resurface do you have to check if you’re still wearing your bathing suit? Scary situation!
When you go swimming a few laps in a bikini, there’s a good chance that you’ll have to keep adjusting yourself to check that you’re not revealing anything. There’s no need to worry about embarrassing episodes, and try a cute one-piece swimsuit.
