Can you feel it? Summer is coming! It means piña coladas on the beach, late nights watching the sunset, and vacations by the sea. It also means it’s time to go shopping for a new bathing suit. While this time of the year is exciting for some, it can be a nightmare for others, which is why we’ve decided to do some work for you!

Over the past few years, one-piece swimsuits have made a comeback and they’re not going anywhere. Not only are there plenty of them in so many styles, but they’re also so fashionable and can be more comfortable.

We’ve tried on some (many) of the most popular brands, and here are the ones that caught our attention.

This company is Indybest’s favorite overall - and this one-piece swimsuit is simply delicious to look at. Vitamin A’s slogan is “sustainability is sexy”, and it couldn’t be more true with the Demi bodysuit. If you want all eyes to be on you, this one is definitely worth a try while tanning on the beach!
