Cute one-pieces you can actually swim in

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. The beauty of these 12 styles isn’t just in their flattering cuts and surprising designs; you can actually swim in them. Amazing! 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.
