Finding the perfect black one-piece swimsuit is like finding the perfect Little Black Dress: hard to find the right one, but when you do, you keep it forever. A good, basic black swimsuit that will last you season after season is one of those investments that you’ll continuously make use of, summer after summer. And one-pieces are huge right now, too. So you’ll be comfortable, covered up, and on trend. Here’s a list to get you started on your search for the perfect LBS (little black swimsuit).
BALEAF Women's Athletic Adjustable Strap One Piece Swimsuit
The key to the amazing reviews of this swimsuit is adjustable straps. The cut is stylish, with modest coverage and a keyhole back.
Smismivo Tummy Control Swimwear Halter One Piece Swimsuit
If you’re self-conscious of your stomach this summer, this is the swimsuit for you. The ruched fabric helps accentuate your curves and smooth your stomach.
American Trends Women's One Piece Swimsuit
This swimsuit has a more athletic cut. You’ll get all the style you want but the silhouette means you can still swim laps without any adjusting.
This is my current favorite swimsuit. It’s a low scoop neck but it feels secure enough that I don’t feel nervous about hitting a wave and possibly flashing someone. The hips are slightly high-cut and the straps are adjustable. Plus, it has UPF 50+ protection.
Poolside Pause One-Piece
Add a little interest to your one-piece with a strappy detail like this one from Lululemon. The V-neck front is super flattering on everyone and even with the more detailed criss-cross back, the main straps adjust to get you the perfect fit. The ribbed fabric also keeps you super comfortable in and out of the water.
Tempt Me Piece High Neck Swimwear
This is Amazon’s best-selling and highest-reviewed one-piece. The high neck design is stunning and you get a slight peak of sexiness with the mesh plunge neck. It’s full coverage in the back and the entire front is ruched to be flattering on so many body types.
If you want something a little flashier, this is the suit for you. The one-shoulder design is offset by the unique wrap design that keeps you secure. It’s got pretty full coverage in the back and if black isn’t your color, you can get it in one of the many color-block options.
