The Best Budget One Pieces for All Bodies: 2019

It's the annual round up, ladies!

I've scoured the internet, tried on a dozen swimsuits and worn myself out pulling lycra on and off my body, but we have quite a list of high quality, budget friendly, body flattering one pieces to show for it! I've got you covered from baby swim lessons to sexy beach vacays so let's get to it.

D cup
size 30 in jeans

Also, don't mind my dirty/smudgy seflie mirror, I am who I am.

Black Ruched Control One Piece
Wearing: size 8
Best for: playing in the ocean, going down a water slide, visually smoothing and shaping

This suit is by far the most locked and loaded suit in the round up. That ruching pulls it all in (including the ladies!) and keeps it all in place. I am wearing my true size but the control top aspect of this suit makes it feel snug once you get it on - not uncomfortable, but you'l know none of your parts are going to fly out of this one.

Pro Tip: when my suit arrived, the ruching was flipped to the back of the suit, if that happens, just pull the crotch area through the ruching and it will flip it the right way.

The straps are adjustable, the rear coverage is full and there are cups sewn into the top.

Wearing: size US 10/D-DD
Best for: living your best life, giving no effs, those vacay vibes

AH-cha-cha, this little number is spicy! I love that the sizes run through an F cup and you can choose your suit based on your body size plus your cup size, which is a hard find. Those mesh panels are a subtle little detail full of big time sexy impact, just keep an eye on their placement. The bottom/back/leg cut is higher and more exposed, but I am here for it.

The top has no built in cup or shelf bra, but does have four total straps and two are adjustable.

Wearing: size 10
Best for: Barbie vibes, splash pad with the babes, lounging, anything really


I ordered this red and pink number on a whim and am so surprised with how much I like it. In all honesty, I assume that I need all kinds of bells and whistles built in for a suit to be flattering, but this simple tank one piece proves me wrong. The back is a classic dip back with medium full coverage and the material has a subtle shirred/gather to it.

Nothing is built in to the suit bra wise, but the thicker fabric will prevent nips popping through, if that's not your jam.

Wearing: size 10
Best for: small to medium busts, wave pools, non-grabby offspring

I love this perfect bright shade of red. The halter ties at the neck, the bust tie can be tightened and re-tied and the back has a tie that can be tied to fit so the chances of getting everything secured in just the right spot are pretty high with this little number. I do personally think the halter isn't enough support for me to keep the ladies where I like them but I wanted that not to be the case. It's worth noting that this is not the suit to take to Water Babies class as there are way too many options for tiny toddler hands to untie you and spring your bits free.

The top has built in cups with removable pads and the bottom cut is fairly full coverage.

Wearing: Size 10 
Best for: Everything. Feeling your best, minimizing the bust, slimming the tummy, swimming, playing, walking, eating, being all around baller.

I am so impressed with this one piece. The wide straps of the deep v are hiding a built in bra system that somehow works wonders. It's minimizing and sexy while still be covered up enough to go anywhere. The midsection is control based with ruching that seems to hide it all and the leg is cut just a tiny bit high to lengthen the leg. The bottom coverage is medium full and stays in place when you walk around.

You can spot the built in bra and straps in the pic above.

Wearing: size medium (6-8)
Best for: baby swim lessons, toddler splash pad wrangling, boogie boarding, kite surfing (I assume)

A classic cut with crossed back adjustable straps, this suit screams utility to me. It's flattering, has major coverage and can get down and dirty. No straps to randomly untie, no way any parts are escaping, this one won't let you down. The top has built in cups and the bottom coverage is full with a low cut leg.

One Shoulder Ruffle | Identical Option available in a handful of colors 
Wearing: size 8 (size up if tall, have a long torso or otherwise think you might need a few inches of fabric here or there)
Best for: feeling glam, put together and keeping it all locked and loaded.

Available in a ton of gorgeous colors, this suit is going to flatter everyone, everywhere. It has subtle ruching across the tummy, a traditional leg, medium full rear coverage, and the universally flattering one shoulder ruffle detail. The top has a built in shelf bra with cups and removable pads,
