Summer is almost here, which means it’s time for swimsuit shopping season to commence! Anyone who stocks up on new maillots and bikinis once the weather starts to warm up knows that it’s a process that requires a lot of care and precision. Many factors go into choosing the right bikini—color, cut, silhouette, size, you get the gist—so allow us to help you find the perfect suit by narrowing down the search. We recently listed some form-flattering high-waisted bikinis you can shop now, but in case you prefer classic one-piece suits, check out our fave styles for summer 2021 below.
These stylish one-piece swimsuits are perfect for your next seaside adventure:
Alba Manila Bucas V-Scoop One Piece
Bucas V-Scoop One Piece, P2650, ALBA MANILA, albamanila.com
This vibrant red one-piece from Alba Manila is giving us major Baywatch vibes. Channel your inner '90s lifeguard by doing a quick slow-mo run right on the shore—trust us, it’s a self-esteem booster. The piece also doubles as a body suit; throw some bottoms over it and you can go straight from the pool to a casual hangout. Plus, the straps can be adjusted to make the suit appear open and low-back or criss-crossed, depending on what best fits the mood or occasion.
Coral Swimwear Lana One Piece Swimsuit

Off-shoulder swimsuits are a great option if you love showing off your shoulders and decolletage. Not to mention, they’re kinder to a wider variety of body types compared to sleeveless or strapless suits. Try this piece from Coral Swimwear if you want to rock the look. The simple but sophisticated design exudes as much elegance as your fave LBD.
Hot Water Washed Up High Leg One Piece with Zipper
Washed Up High Leg One Piece with Zipper, P2250, HOT WATER, Rustan's
Something about this Hot Water one-piece screams "surfer girl." The blue-and-white tie-dye pattern, reminiscent of crystal clear waters, mixes hippie vibes with tropical fashion—it would be a sin not to wear it to the beach. Shell and beaded jewelry, woven accessories, and fresh-out-the-water waves are not required, but very much encouraged.
Aquaholic Martina Swimsuit
Martina Swimsuit, P1609, AQUAHOLIC, Zalora
We love the unique color-blocked layout of this Aquaholic swimsuit, which draws lines between the shoulder, mid-section, and hips. The cool color panels actually make the suit extra form-flattering. The black shade taking up the bottom helps hide your post-lunch bloat while drawing attention to your curves. Meanwhile, the bright colors on top draw light to your face, shoulders, and collarbone.

Scalloped Textured Swimsuit, P2995, MANGO, Zalora
If you’re going for a beach or poolside look that’s clean and effortlessly chic, you can’t go wrong with a white swimsuit. Try this one-piece from Mango, which turns up the angelic vibes with a scalloped neckline and bikini area. These frilly details give the swimsuit a delicate, ethereal look, perfect for your dainty aesthetic.

This nude-toned piece from Float Swimwear is perfect for your minimalist aesthetic. It has a neutral shade that would flatter all skin tones and a reliable, no-frills silhouette that you’ll love reaching for.

Active Retro Tank One-Piece, P5950, SEAFOLLY, Rustan's
This Seafolly swimsuit sports a classic one-piece silhouette with a scoop neck, tank top-like straps, low armholes, high bikini cut, and cheeky backside that would flatter a variety of body types and show off just enough skin. We love it in this bright cobalt blue, but you can also get it in an eye-catching orange.

Anya, P2100, BEYOND THE BEACH, beyondthebeachph.com
This sleek black maillot from Beyond the Beach combines all the benefits of a one-piece suit and a high-waisted bikini. Its front and back cut-outs show off your back and waist while the fabric on either side holds the top and bottom steady in place. That way, you can show off your curves and flash some skin while still hiding any bulges and bumps you’d rather not let hang out.
