Are one piece swimsuits flattering?

With so many different styles on offer from plunging necklines, to long-sleeves or high-necked designs for a little more modesty, and low-back or cut-out options that spice things up a little – you’re sure to find a style to suit your body type.

What is a one piece swimsuit called?

There are plenty of different names for one-pieces, most of which refer to the different styles of swimsuit. A maillot is a bit of an old-fashioned term for a classic one-piece, and a tank suit is a sort of sleeveless leotard or bodysuit. Other varieties include plunge-front swimsuits that are great for showing off your décolletage, halter neck and bandeau styles.

What are good swimwear websites?

There are plenty of great sites where you can find a wide range of swimwear to suit every shape. Big retailers like The Iconic, one piece, ASOS, and City Beach have extensive swimwear ranges that are frequently updated so you can enjoy the latest styles from the best brands. If you’re after some sportier styles, places like JD Sports and Speedo have great options too.
