So, I haven’t really gone swimsuit shopping in a few years. I had a black ruffle one piece that didn’t quite fit but did a good enough job for the one or two times I needed it in Korea. Between training for this half-marathon and planning different warm weather trips, I’ve had one piece swimsuits for summer travel on my mind the last month or so.
I’m not a bikini person. I think there are a ton of cute styles, and if you like them, you should rock them as you wish. In fact, I preferred them when I was a teenager because they were a nice break from the super tight training suits I wore for swim practice.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve definitely veered towards the one piece. Yes, in part from
a little a lot of weight gain since quitting my life’s sport. But also because I like the comfort of a one piece. I can go off the high dive or get caught in a wave and not worry about where my bottoms go! Also, designers across the board have really stepped up the design of one piece swimsuits in the last few summer seasons. No longer do they look dowdy or like they’re meant for your chubbier friend. They’re actually trendy and chic.

I thought I’d round up some of my favorite styles and break them down by price. After all, two years without Target has made me a little bit of an addict since being home…
Budget One-Pieces Swimsuits (<$50)
I actually bought the first one when I saw it at a Target in Atlanta. I had saved a pin of a similar looking suit ages ago and wanted to get it made in Vietnam but couldn’t find a tailor that did swimwear specifically. As far as colors go, I do love the burgundy and moss green shades I keep seeing across different brands and styles. If you can’t tell, I veer more towards solids (really mostly black) than I do prints, especially for more budget items.

Mid-Range One-Pieces Swimsuits ($50-$100)
I remember on one of my old blogs I wrote a post about how my style inspiration tends to fall into three categories: bohemian, uber feminine, and jet-set chic. I feel like my top three for mid-range actually represent this pretty accurately! I’m not normally one for white suits, but I love the boho vibe of the first one. The pink color and delicate print of the second is too sweet, and the black one is a simple suit with a subtle twist.

Luxury One-Piece Swimsuits ($100>)
How gorgeous are these suits? I saw the first on in a Tory Burch campaign pic a while ago (it’s been around, hasn’t it?) and I just love the classic navy and white combination. I’m a sucker for anything off the shoulder, and the third suit is one of the few bolder prints I actually really liked.

See what I mean? Designers and brands from Target to Trina Turk have really stepped up their one piece offerings! I didn’t think I’d ever be much of a swimwear collector, but it’s only May and I’ve already bought two…
Have you picked up any cute one-piece swimsuits for summer travel?
