Dive deep into summer (literally) with a low-plunging, scoop back swimsuit. The practically backless silhouette is worth a shot this season if you're feeling a little daring and want something new to replace your old bikini. And, you know what I like to say: The one-piece is business in the front, party in the back. Though the scoop back style is s-e-x-y, trust me too when I say the following swimsuits are worth buying alone just for the details like bows and floral prints. Shop my favorite low-back suits, ahead.
This low back one-piece is inspired by a dress style icon Kate Moss wore in 1995. Therefore, you need it. It's designed with a body sculpting stretch fabric and has a flattering square neckline to show off your collarbone. The scoop back won't give you tan lines like a traditional bikini does and you'll have that coveted bronzed glow from behind. This will be your LBS for summer (little blue swimsuit).
Fact: founder and designer Brittany Kozerski of Jade Swim has perfected the one-piece. The "tether" low-back suit showcases the brands ethos for creating day-to-night minimal swimwear. Just like all the other Jade pieces, this one-piece functions as both a bodysuit and a swimsuit.
Love Shack Fancy debuted their swim line this year and I have to say I am here for it. Just like the brand's dreamy feminine dresses, this swimsuit checks off all the boxes in what I'd want to wear this summer. The tie straps offer a fun, flirty detail while showing off a scooped back.
For a solid colored backless swimsuit, try this sea foam green one-piece. It's definitely a minimalist suit with elegant vibes. Aside from the cute style, this swimsuit's fabric also has UPF 50+ sun protection. (Don't skim on the actual sunscreen though.)
Hunza G has become my favorite swim brand this season mainly because of their fabrics. This one-piece is made from its new slick bandage style fabric in the perfect summer white shade—ideal to wear mid-summer when you're rockin' a tan. The belt adds a small but mighty finishing touch to highlight your waistline.
Feel bold in this fuchsia-colored scoop back swimsuit when heading to the beach or pool this season. The brand's signature swim style comes with scrunchie shoulder straps and high-cut leg openings that are anything but boring. An added bonus? Fisch suits are created with 65 percent ECONYL material (fishing nets and nylon waste).
This beautiful Oseree one-piece is a no brainer for any party. The delicate skinny straps paired with the shimmery fabric give this swimsuit an upgrade to your basic black one-piece. Wear this with light denim cutoff shorts and throw on some pool slides because this is definitely a look for the beach club.
If you're looking for a swimsuit that lays comfortably on your skin and is stretchy, the shirred finish on this one-piece has your name on it. It's full of cool details like plunges in the front and the back while or tortoise shell rings elevate the would-be ordinary straps. Pair with matching tortoise shell sunglass and your swim outfit is complete.
This is the color I've been waiting for: the perfect periwinkle. The button closure on the front gives this low-back piece a little extra something-something. The fabric's made from recycled plastic, approximately 14 water bottles, so you can feel good while knowing you're also doing good for the environment.
Australian label Peony is really making waves in the swim market this season. This playful red and white striped one-piece is perfect for on and off the beach while the low-back gives it a sexy vibe.
You go to Lululemon to replenish your stash of favorite workout leggings and now, you can pick up a swimsuit too. The brand has swimwear as a category and this one-piece offers coverage without sacrificing that sexy low-back shape. The "vintage gold" color is just right for that golden hour selfie.
