Sizzling One-Piece Bathing Suits

ABC News Blogs

Think one-piece bathing suits aren’t chic? Think again.

The traditional one-piece swimsuit is back and making a big splash at the beach! This summer you can say goodbye to all those itsy bitsy, teeny weeny bikinis. The sexy suit that leaves a little something to the imagination is this summer's hottest style.

The one-piece, made famous by Bo Derek in "Ten" and Pamela Anderson on "Baywatch," is stealing the poolside spotlight this summer. It’s all about the Vintage style, evocative of a more modest era. Styles we might find in our mother’s – and even grandmother’s closets!

The one-piece has been embraced by fashion power houses like Dolce and Gabbana and Michael Kors, who paraded plenty to choose from on the catwalk this season. And the best news? You don’t have to be model-thin to sport one. One-pieces complement all your curves.

Glamour magazine’s contributing style editor, Tracey Lomrantz Lester, joined us in the park this morning with a look at the most popular one-piece suit trends you’re going to see this summer.
