27 Monokinis That Prove They're Your New Summer Must-Have

Gone are the days when wearing a one-piece swimsuit meant you were either a serious swimmer, sun-averse, or body-conscious. Designers have heard our cries and flooded the market with styles anyone can love in cuts and colors that rival the two-pieces we've been wearing for years. And whether your look is more retro or sexy, maillot is experiencing a resurgence that goes way beyond the occasional #TBT.
