11 One-Piece Suits That Make Great Bodysuits (and are on SALE)

August 05, 2016

I spent a good amount of my life in one-piece bathing suits for a lot of reasons.  I really just wasn’t comfortable enough with my body to wear a bikini but when I got to high school it was pretty much unacceptable to wear my swim team speedo one-pieces anymore so I had to suck it up (and suck it in) and get a few bikinis.  Since then I have pretty much avoided one pieces at all costs, but I have to admit that lately, they've been growing on me more and more.  In the past few years swim designers have really stepped up their one-piece game, and there are more one-pieces I like lately than bikinis.  I have a pretty hard time shopping for swimsuits as it is because I have a big butt and I’m smaller up top so I usually need to mix and match my sizes. 

I have been looking for a good one-piece for a while now but I’ve had a hard time finding one that fits right.  That's why I was SUPER excited when I found this Lucky Brand one-piece at Lord & Taylor on the clearance rack.  I tried on the medium and just knew that I had to have it.  Honestly, I haven't worn another suit since I purchased it last month.  The suit is the perfect length and doesn’t ride up which is very important and although I was hesitant about buying a white bathing suit, it is the perfect material and doesn’t become see through even if I sweat or go in the pool.  The criss-cross tie back detail gives it the right amount of sexiness.  But my favorite part about this suit is that it makes the perfect summer bodysuit.  I threw on a pair a denim shorts when I left the beach and I already had a perfect summer outfit on and didn’t need to change a thing!  The front is low cut but not too low cut for a hot summer day and the back detailing competes with the best bodysuits out there.  If you felt like it was a little too risqué or you just need that 3rd piece in there, you could throw a kimono on top and you’ve got yourself a real put together outfit.  This is just one of those effortless chic pieces that you are bound to get a great amount of use out of.

So if you’re anything like me and you have probably started to get those end of summer blues and are clinging on to August for dear life.  I have something that will help you forget about the fall for a while and look at the bright side of things…… THEE BEST Summer sales are happening right now and to help you take advantage of that, I’ve searched high and low for the cutest one-piece bathing suits that also make GREAT bodysuits so you can soak up the rest of your summer days in style.  If you like any of the ones below, just click the picture to shop!
