Not since the debut season of Baywatch have the words “sexy” and “one-piece” belonged to the same sentence, let alone the same garment. But this season, sexy one-piece swimsuits are back with a vengeance, and they’re here to dethrone bikinis as the must-have beachwear silhouette of 2020. Considering floss-style string bikinis are your only other trending option this season, it’s likely many of you will go the one-piece route, and TBH, I don’t blame you. Personally, I like a lil’ coverage at the beach or pool—of course, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to look sexy AF!
Luckily, super-hot one-piece styles are abundant this year, so we’ve got a ton of options. The key to finding one that nails the balance between tastefully modern and downright provocative? It’s all about paying attention to the cutouts. Find a suit that shows off slices of skin you’re comfortable with, whether that’s a one-shoulder moment to highlight your collarbone, a backless style with coverage for the girls up front, or cutouts at the waist to show off those abs you’ve been crafting. Don’t let it all hang out, per se, but don’t be afraid to embrace your inner sexy beach kween!
Below, 10 sexy one-piece bathing suits that’ll have you forgetting bikinis ever existed. And to sweeten the deal, allow me to present you with a key cost-per-wear pro tip: Throw your favorite one-piece suit on with high-waisted pants or shorts or a cute skirt when it’s time for happy hour, and have everyone complimenting your cute new top. They’ll never know you wore it to the pool just hours earlier!
