This summer, dive deep into warm weather with a barely-there, low-back one-piece. The trusty one-piece might feel predictable, but not if it's paired with a scooped back. Choose the entirely backless look if you're feeling daring, or if you want a little more coverage in the bust area but still want to show off some skin; the scoop-back if you're feeling a little more conservative; or the all-over-plunge if you're feeling especially spicy. Some of these low-back swimsuits even double as a bodysuits, simplifying the universally dreaded experience of packing for vacation. Ahead, shop our favorite low-back and backless swimsuits—there are plenty of versions to choose from, so you're sure to find one (or two, or three) that fit your style.
