Here's Why This Swimsuit Style Is So Flattering

One-piece bathing suits are the classic pieces that never go out of style. From vintage-inspired stripes to plunging necklines, there’s a number of current iterations that are inspiring a new generation to give the suit a try, rivaling its two-piece cousin in popularity. Right now, if there’s one style to call out, it’s the high-cut one-piece swimsuit.

So what exactly makes this trend so popular and flattering? We asked Sabra Krock, the creative director of Everything But Water, on why this ’80s silhouette is making a huge comeback right now. “We continue to see very clean-lined, sleek silhouettes trending, and high-cut legs are a good example,” she tells us. “This cut lengthens the body, creating mile-long legs, and is very flattering.”
