Raspberry Tie-Dye One Piece from Terez
There's much to love about the swimsuit collection for Terez, but we love that while their one-piece suits provide ample coverage, they come in tons of fabulous prints! The fully-lined pieces have cute coverage in the front and offer a low back to give a simple style a little more pizazz! We also loved that they are made from a recycled poly blend that results in a silky feel with tons of stretch.
Available at Terez, $180.
The Tulum from Andie
While there are several Andie suits to choose from, including these new styles and a maternity suit, we were especially wowed by this simple one-piece that reminds us of the swim team suits of our youth with a little added class. The criss-cross back straps offer added support and you can choose from over a dozen different colors.
Available at Andie Swim, $95.
Tempt Me Tankini
This tankini has a ruched waist, which makes for added tummy control, a high one-shoulder strap that means everything stays in place and includes a padded push-up bra for extra support. Sizes range from XS to XXL and come in over 15 different colors and prints.
Available at Amazon, $34.99.
