Trying on one piece swimsuits

…is kind of like cleaning toilets. Nobody likes to do it (nobody I know at least), and yet, it must be done. So, here we are.

I want you to know I tried on 30+ swimsuits over the last couple of years, before I narrowed it down to these.

In a hurry? Go straight to my picks below!

One piece swimsuits that FIT WELL

First of all, you must know that ALL of these swimsuits pictured fit true to size. Look at the sizing charts on each of their product pages and go off that based on your body type. I was thrilled that none fit out of whack. It was a goldilocks win – not too tight, not too big, perfect fit all around.

They ALL have pretty good bum coverage, too. Full to medium, but nothing skimpy that will make you feel like you’re borderline wearing a thong (no thanks!).

AND they all include removable pads. (V important if you don’t want to scare others at the pool when you’re getting out!)

Affordable one piece swimsuits

Sometimes I find myself diving down into the rabbit hole of looking for a more expensive option thinking I’m going to find a cuter or better fitting swimsuit that way. Sometimes that’s totally true, but I also want you to know that you CAN find flattering, well-fitting, cute swimsuits within a reasonable price range.

These swimsuits range from $28 to $36, so you know you’re in a good range of affordability AND still getting cute, well-fitting swimsuits, so I’m calling that a WIN.

Bold macrame one-piece swimwear

This swimsuit is such a fun pop of color and has the prettiest back with plunging macrame detailing! I love that the thin racer straps are adjustable and the padding is removable.

Grab this one-piece for $29.99! It’ll give you medium booty coverage and the most flattering look on the torso. This macrame beauty has 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon and is a major win for me! I’m BUMMED that I accidentally left it at home when we went to Hawaii last, so I wasn’t able to grab a picture! Sizes are going quick in this one, so if you see your size I suggest ordering it sooner than later.

Classic one-piece to grab in every color

A WHOLE MOOD: this hot pink high cut one-piece with adjustable straps is under $35! I have this suit in two colors, but there are over a dozen colors and prints you can shop from.

This is a great basic to own – the cut is so timeless! I love the full coverage it offers on the back and the bottom is kind of a medium coverage. It runs true to size and has a ton of high ratings!

I love this reviewer who wrote, “I just love love love this swimsuit. First of all I thought neon pink might look good in pictures but be too bright in real life. But it’s just perfect, it’s fun and classy. And the quality is simply incredible.”

Faux wrap one piece Amazon swimsuit

I already owned this swimsuit in a creamsicle color scheme and wore it to DEATH the a few summers ago!! I decided to grab it in this super cute navy, pink, and white color block in ’21 and it once again did not disappoint. I love the fit, the colors, the side tie, and that it’s just a little different than any other swimmer I’ve ever tried. This suit is a perfect 10/10 for me, and it’s only $34.99.

Ruffle stripe one piece

This one piece swimsuit was a complete surprise when I tried it on. I kind of assumed I might not like it (no idea why?!) but the ratings were singing its praises so I gave it a whirl and it wowed me enough to earn a 9/10 – plus I love that it’s only $32.99!

Solid scalloped one piece

I have to admit that years ago I bought a swimsuit that cost 3x this much with a similar look, after seeing it on an IG model, and I liked it half as much as this one!! This swimsuit has such a fun cut, but a lot of times scallops I feel like can be less than flattering. Not with this one piece. This scalloped one piece is so cute and has amazing coverage and I want to buy it in another color for this summer, it’s so good! This $25.99 suit was a 10/10 for me.

The full-coverage bikini that’s SO flattering

If you want a two piece that’s basically a bikini but covers your whole body so it feels kind of like a tankini or one piece (without the fabric-sucking effect), then you’re in luck!

This style of swimsuit is super duper flattering on the top and middle. I will say the cut of the bottoms is a bit less flattering than my one-piece recommendations, BUT, if you hate wearing a one-piece when it’s time to find a restroom but you want the modesty of a one-piece, this is gonna be your jam.

I love how well this swimsuit fits and how COMFORTABLE it is! Lastly, it’s only $30.79!

Scoop neck striped swimsuit *TOP PICK*

Saving the BEST ONE PIECE FOR LAST! This black and white striped one-piece is one of my favorite swimsuits of all time and it’s only $33.99.

This chinlon suit fits like a dream giving all the compliments to your figure while being super comfortable. It runs true to size and I think is just the best take on a classic pattern that you can’t go wrong with!

With over 3,000 five star global ratings I know you’ll fall in love with this piece that has become a staple for me after bringing it on a trip to Hawaii last year!
