Aaron and I are heading to the beach next week for my birthday, and I’m so excited for some sunshine!
While preparing for the trip, I went on a quest to find the perfect neutral, one-piece swimsuit. I’ve always loved the idea of pairing vintage denim shorts with a classic white or terra-cotta one-piece. And, well, after finding several winners, I think that’s exactly what I’m going to wear every day on our vacation. :)
Anyway, I’ll be sharing my full beach packing list with you soon, but in the meantime, I’ve done plenty of swimsuit browsing the last few weeks leading up to our trip, and I wanted to share my favorites with you.
Here are 11 neutral, one-piece suits that get my stamp of approval:

1 | Daisy Suit by Madewell (conscious, under $80) | I love that Madewell is now making swimsuits from recycled plastic. First fair trade denim, then a fair trade factory, now recycled plastic swimsuits — go Madewell go!
2 | Tulum Ribbed Suit by Andie | I’ve always wanted a simple, cross back swimsuit like this — but you know how sometimes the simplest designs are hard to find? Not anymore — I was THRILLED to find this one. A couple of quick fit/color notes: It looks white in the photo, but it’s actually more of a ballet pink. Very flattering and still gives off a white swimsuit vibe without being as stark as pure white. It’s lined generously, and has extra support thanks to a shelf bra with light, removable padding. I ordered a small and it fit right on. (Here are my measurements: 5ft 5in, B:32, W:25 H:36)
3 | Polka Dot Suit by And Other Stories (under $50)
4 | Dusk Leaf Suit by Zulu and Zephyr | This print is what my summer swimsuit dreams are made of!
5 | Anne-Marie Suit by Solid and Striped | I surprised myself with this one — I didn’t think I was into the bold stripe thing happening on so many swimsuits right now. But I kept coming back to it. That white and rust color palette got me.
6 | Warm Paisley Suit by Madewell (under $50)
7 | Criss Cross Suit by Madewell (conscious, under $70) | This one might be a good option for anyone with a very long torso — I tried it on in a Small and it was quite a bit too long, even though I consider myself to have a slightly longer than average torso. Plus it’s got that stunning cross back that I love.
8 | Emma Snakeskin Suit by Mara Hoffman (conscious)
9 | Anne-Marie Ruched Suit by Solid and Striped | I’ve always dreamt of a white one-piece, but finding one that isn’t see-through is tough. So I was excited when I found this one with plenty of texture — it’s ruched all over.
10 | Edie Suit by Vitamin A (conscious)| I’ve been a fan of Vitamin A for a long time now. They were the first eco-friendly swimwear brand I found. Their swimsuits are super cheeky, but their bottoms are some of the most flattering I’ve ever found. I wear a 6/S in their suits.
11 | Ribbed Suit by And Other Stories (under $70)
