For many years, bikinis were pretty much considered the only option for those looking for a trendy, sexy swimsuit, while the one-piece had a reputation for being a bit basic, best left for serious swim sessions. Not anymore. A quick scroll through Instagram will show that sexy one-pieces are trending. In fact, it’s bikinis that are being pushed aside this summer.
If you haven’t worn a one-piece in years, you may be surprised how far they’ve come from the traditional solid-colored swimsuits with racerbacks.

Some show even more skin than the bikinis you’ve favored for years.
