Maybe there was a time when one-piece swimsuits were seen as dowdy or matronly, but honestly, we can't remember it. One-pieces are essentially a bikini's more flattering counterpart (seriously, somehow they look good on everyone). After seeing this summer's trendy cut-outs, graphic patterns, and strappy details, you'll forget why you ever bought a two-piece in the first place. Shop the best of the season, ahead.
