Celebrities Love Their One-Piece Bathing Suits For Summer Vacation

One-piece bathing suits aren’t what they used to be. Formerly thought of as frumpy and grandma-licious, the one-piece – also known as “maillot” – is making a comeback and today is considered chic, sophisticated and even, dare we say, sexy. The extra coverage helps to add a little more comfort to one’s beach or pool day. You can easily swim, tan or throw on a sarong and head to a poolside lunch – all while looking perfectly put together.  The one piece suit is a great item for summer 2012 and has been consistently showing up at Swim Fashion Week 2012 in Miami this week!

Below, we’ve listed our top one-piece style picks for summer: the animal face, strapless, classic prints, and retro.  Diane Kruger sports a We Are Handsome animal face with beau Joshua Jackson while in Mexico, Lauren Conrad wears Rochas while modeling in Punta Cana for Glamour Magazine, Kirsten Dunst sunbathes in Punta Mita wearing a classic printed cutout one-piece by Eres Gingham, and Blake Lively has fun in the New York sun over the July 4th holiday weekend wearing a retro polka dot bathing suit.

Leave a comment below and let us know what you think about the one-piece bathing suit.  Will  you sport your own one-piece while poolside this summer? Post your favorite styles or pics on Facebook!
