If we’re judging by the some most stylish girls in the game—Karlie Kloss, Emily Ratajkowski, and Gigi Hadid, to name a few—it’s clear that you don’t need to sport an itty-bitty bikini to look like a complete beach babe (even though they sometimes do that, too). More and more we’re seeing models, actresses, and the most fashionable bloggers opting for more covered-up swimwear for a look that’s chic and cool, but still just as show-stopping as more skin-baring styles. And one-piece suits aren’t necessarily synonymous with modesty: with sexy cut-outs, plunging necklines, or high-cut legs, there are many options that can still show off your best assets. That said, if you are trying to keep some bits covered, the one-piece is a great go-to solution. We’ve compiled a collection 10 styles that range from basic to bold and sporty to super feminine—one of which ought to suit your needs.
Anne-Marie Striped Swimsuit
Solid and Striped
Just like that blue-and-white striped boatneck shirt you've got in your closet, this suit is totally timeless.

Marysia's trademark scalloped edges are feminine and super flattering.

A subtle shimmer saves this champagne-colored suit from being overly sporty.

Solange is a fan of this brand's minimalist styles, just saying.
Arcadia Floral-Print Rash Guard

A sizable cutout on this two-tone suit provides subtle sex appeal—without exposing too much.
