Cute One Piece Bathing Suits

Updated on January 26, 2014

Cute One Piece Swimsuits For 2014

Here is a hand picked collection of cute styles in one piece swimsuits. You can select the perfect swimsuit without ever leaving your home.

Have you encountered a time in your life when wearing a bikini is no longer an option? For some (like me) it can be almost traumatic, while other women sail gracefully through the transition. Either way, it's reassuring to know that even though the bikini era is over, style and looking great do not have to be sacrificed when wearing a cute one piece bathing suit.

Please enjoy the story about my little drama of making this inevitable transition, or if you wish just slide on down to check out the really cute one piece swimsuits I brought here just for you. Either way, I hope you enjoy your visit and find a cute one piece swimsuit!

More Cute One Piece Swimwear Below!

Once upon a time a few years ago a woman (me) lived in a tropical, palm tree lined fairy tale place (Florida). Living by the Gulf of Mexico, a cute swim suit (actually, multiple swim suits) were a vital necessity of everyday wear.

One day the woman, (me again) fell in love with Prince Charming and went off to live in another fairy tale place (North Carolina) where alas, no beaches existed anywhere near the woman's castle like they did in the first fairy tale place.

The woman not only found her dream Prince, but her dream job as well. She became the Stay At Home Queen who by day took care of two mini princesses as well as one young prince and by night sat at her computer spinning really cool fairy tales for others.

Life was indeed grand.

Time evolved in the magical land of North Carolina and the woman continued to live the dream while working at the royal computer, raising royal offspring and such.

Life was good and the woman was content. Then one day her prince told her they would be embarking on a journey back to the land of palm trees, sparkling water and bathing suits.

Wait a minute! Bathing suits?? This thought caused a royal panic within the womans mind while outwardly she displayed signs of joy and excitement for her prince.

As soon as the woman was alone in her castle, she dashed off to her royal dresser and stared warily, not to mention a little hostilely at The Drawer. The Drawer had remained closed, quietly guarding it's belongings for a very long time, creating a distance between the woman and the contents within.

The woman paced around The Drawer and wondered silently if its contents had changed since they last met. Perhaps they had....dare she think it, grown smaller in their dark safe cavern?

Surely she was the same slim woman she was before she sat down at the royal computer three years earlier. Surely with all the healthy, home cooked meals she prepared and the relentless activity of running the royal offspring from destination to destination would have ensured her slim figure would be preserved for all of time...... Wouldn't it?

And the woman smiled and laid down on the royal bed for a nice royal nap since all this stress had left her sleepy and yes, maybe even a little grumpy. So she laid her head down, closed her eyes and drifted off, peaceful and content in the knowledge that time does in fact stand still for all women when it come to staying the same bathing suit size forever............

Suddenly my eyes flew open, my heart violently pounding, causing me to sit straight up in bed. What a weird dream that was. I was actually entertaining sleep disguised thoughts that my bathing suits, my beloved bikinis, would no longer fit me. Of course they would......wouldn't they?

So I bravely dragged my feet, ever so slowly over to that same drawer (minus the royal adornments) that haunted my dream. I hesitantly reached out a slightly shaking hand, opened that drawer, and firmly grasped those bathing suits in my hand, carrying them slowly but so determinedly over to the mirror.

I held them up one by one and finally allowed the truth to sink in. Since the truth can't be altered or changed, I finally acknowledged the undeniable fact that my beloved bikinis had SHRUNK!

(the ongoing saga continues below)

OK, I'm lying. Caught red handed right out here in front of all of you.

I have out grown my bathing suits, just a little.

OK, a lot.

I am going on a beach vacation in a few months with my family and for the first time in my life will be going to the beach.....in a one piece bathing suit.

Surely there are cute one piece swim suits out there for women and young ladies. Surely my ego, vanity and silly fixation on a bathing suit isn't going to ruin our family vacation is it?

Of course not. Why? Well just look at all these cute one piece bathing suits.

Why I Love Buying A Bathing Suit From Swimsuits For All

The cute one piece bathing suits seen here are all offered at Swimsuits For All. Here are my Top 5 Reasons why I love Swimsuits For All:

#1) I don't have to visit a department store, look at hopelessly small bathing suits and gaze at myself in a stark dressing room under those ugly, unflattering fluorescent lights. Why do they use those anyway?

#2) Their sizes begin at size 8 and go up through plus sizes. That's right, no impossibly young, thin models to gaze at hoping just maybe you could fit into a tiny bathing suit and look just like her.

#3) Speaking of models, many of the photos share the size of the bathing suit the model is wearing as well as the actual measurements of the model so you can get a realistic idea of how the suit would look on you.

#4) A FREE consultation with a Fit & Flatter Specialist to help you choose the right bathing suit for your body type, you style and your budget.

#5) They offer a convenient return policy, reasonable shipping costs as well as some awesome sales and specials.

      Till now, I was opposed to a one-piece. I thought they looked dumpy but now because of this lens...and be a woman of a certain age...maybe I can consider a one-piece LOL a cute one!

      I personally think women look far more sexier in a one piece. This lens showed a great selection to choose from. I personally like the high neck. Thanks for sharing.

      As a guy, a one-piece is my only option. As for women, just as a well-designed business suit can be just as attractive as a little black dress, there are all kinds of things that work for everyone.

      Beauty has a huge range and variety is still the best spice.

      I like to water ski so I have always worn one piece swimsuits! Two piece suits come off too easily when you hit the water! Delta Burke's suits are beautiful and well-made.

      Nice one piece suits. I have worn tanks most of my life but following surgery on my throat last spring I now own a scar that needs to remain covered when i swim to keep it from getting sun damaged. Last simmer I wore a mock turtle neck rash guard over my old suit...talk about ugly, but it worked... this yr i am hoping to find a high neck tank...any ideas? So far I have found only 1 high enough at Land's End which is fine but hoping for a little more variety to choose from

      I don't even own a bathing suit now. My daughter has taken all of them within the last 2 or 3 years. Well now shes pregnant so. So I will get them back but they won't fit. I love these suits definitely got to cut down on looking at these food lenses.lol . I need to be in a suit by the time the summer comes. Like the one you have here with the sarong. Great lens..

      I'm on a bit of a fashion tour (as a guy) and so I don't really have any comments on the bathing suits other than I appreciate modest design. What I really love is how you frame your sections and lay out your lens. I would love a lesson on that. Thanks for the inspiration!

I was lucky I could wear one till I was in my early 50's. I admit that now I should wear a one piece, but never have found one that did not look grand-ma-ish...here I found several I really liked..oh like those models couldn't wear a bikini! your other lens with the bathing suits is more like it, I'm between the sizes...but still prefer a one piece...nice lens! a ~"Squid Angel Blessing"~

      Love the fairy tale. My bathing suit problems are a bit different. I need to mix and match the two pieces, because the same measurement isn't the same size (go figure). Then I have to hunt like mad for one pieces with the right shape (and a long torso). Gack!
