How to Maximize the Use of Your One Piece Swimsuit | She Saw Style

The one piece swimsuit has come a long way. They used to be seen as prude, and now they’re chic. I believe the greatest part about them is their versatility!

With a one piece swimsuit, know you’ll have the perfect outfit ready to go in a snap. They basically double as a bodysuit, and you don’t have to wear a bra (literally the best solution for a small-busted lady like myself). I have an extra-long torso, so one piece swimsuits have always been a challenge for me. Growing up, my family dressed very modestly and conservatively, so one pieces were my only option – and I would always complain to my mom that they were uncomfortable. They stretched oddly on my long, lanky form. As an adult, I hadn’t found any solutions to this issue, and even bodysuits were hard to come by.

However, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Adore Me offered one piece swimsuits that actually fit and flattered my build. I have two of them now that I love tremendously. ASOS also offers long-torso options for swimwear, which is super appealing. What I’ve found in this gorgeous black one piece is a key item for the summer.

Let me show you why…

The foolproof way to shop for a versatile one piece swimsuit is by selecting a solid-colored item.

Black is as classically chic as it gets, so I was thrilled that Adore Me offered this particular style in a solid color along with the fun patterns. This piece can easily be taken from pool or beach to dinner and drinks. Just shimmy into a midi skirt, add some heels, and you’re set! In fact, I can imagine myself wearing this swimsuit as just a bodysuit, rather than for the sake of soaking up some sun.

    It really is funny to see how far the one-piece has come! I realllllly love how you styled this. And that swimsuit could not be more perfect to use as a “top.” It’s just perfect!

    Yes, I do love it as much as you do! I love that one pieces are “back” and can be worn in other ways. I love the ideas you give! Growing up I could only wear a one piece too, so I find it funny that it’s all I want to wear now haha!

    You seriously chose the PERFECT one-piece because it looks so chic by itself and with a skirt. You are so right and you can maximize the use of a swimsuit by using it as a bodysuit!

    I love that they have become cool! true story: I come from a conservative family. My parents wanted me to wear one-piece swimsuits (I had different opinions). They said I could only buy bikinis if I paid for them myself. They would only buy me one-pieces!

    I need to get this suit! I’m a fan of the ruffle cold shoulder deets (which covers up my arms). I also love how you style it as part of the outfits. So chic!
