Important: This Swimsuit Style Looks Good on Everyone

Welcome to swimsuit season, folks. It might not be summer quite yet, but bathing suits—and weekends at the beach—are already starting to come back into the mix. If you’re looking for a new suit to try this season, there’s one style that looks good on everyone that you should definitely own. We’re talking about black one-piece swimsuits.

We chatted with Michelle Copelman, design director at Solid & Striped, who filled us in on what makes the style so flattering. According to Copelman, “A black one-piece is a tried and true option for all shapes and sizes because it is truly timeless. Black is always a slimming choice and the classic one-piece style lengthens any body type. The Anne-Marie from Solid & Striped adds a sexy element with a low scoop back.” That’s right: The style is sleek and classic but also stylish and cool. Just look to fashion girls who can’t stop wearing the chic swimsuit style.
