The one piece is possibly the trendiest swimsuit to own this season, and – contrary to popular belief – it is not only for curvy women. It comes in a variety of styles and is flattering for all body shapes. Whether you have an athletic figure and prefer a monokini with a cut-out style like Gabrielle Union, or you have a more curvaceous frame such as Khloe Kardashian’s, the one piece is guaranteed to work for you.

Halter-neck and underwire bikinis

If you are a bit heavy on the top, underwire bikini tops and halter-neck styles are your best choice. The built-in underwire acts in the same way as a normal bra to ensure you get sufficient support, while the halter-neck bikini will help lift and shape your bust – both ensuring you receive maximum comfort in your swimsuit.

Classic string bikini

If you have a petite frame and your body is close to flawless, like Ciara and Boity, then we encourage you to celebrate those long hours spent slaving away in the gym – in a string bikini. This style is definitely for the brave as it won’t leave much to the imagination. But, if your body looks as good as this, then all we can say is #werk, honey!

High-waisted bikini

Our love for this retro style bikini will never fade. It’s great for hourglass shapes as it will accentuate your small waistline. It also works well to disguise any unflattering bits on your stomach area and will also give your bum a great lift, which ticks all the right boxes on our list.
