I'll be the first to admit, I wasn't a fan of the one-piece trend when I saw it pop up earlier this year. It straight up reminded me of primary school swimming carnivals which scared me for life (I was very well-acquainted with the white participation ribbon, if you know what I mean), and wedgies. I also like my stomach more than my thighs, and a one-piece accentuates the latter.
But then, the likes of Hailey Baldwin, Gigi Hadid and Task Oakley jumped on the one-piece trend and totally changed my mind. The 2016 one-piece is actually more reminiscent of Bay Watch than Speedo after all, and on top of that, it is surprisingly sexy. Like, sexier than any other swim trend I've seen.
Whether you're on board or not, one scroll through the below pictures and you'll be searching for a one-piece to replace your pile of bikinis. I promise.
