Whether you’re spending January camped out at the local pool, your besties house or you’ve jetted off on a tropical (and less smoky) holiday, one thing is for sure: whatever you’re doing, you’ll likely be wearing swimmers. As we always do at this time of year, when the Canberra heat reaches close-to-unbearable levels, we look to our favourite style for solace.

The one-piece is a smart and undeniably sexy option when it comes to swimwear. It’s also the style most suited to having actual fun. While some of-the-moment styles might look amazing in an insta snap, they’re not exactly made for, you know, swimming. So we’ve rounded up 12 suits that have it all: the styles are flattering and feature unique designs, and they are all totally wearable poolside or beachside – and they can definitely double as a bodysuit for heading out when the fun in the sun has been had.

Keep scrolling for our edit of alluring one-pieces that deserve to be added to your summer wardrobe line up.
