Nine Reasons We're on Team One-Piece

"I swam competitively most of my life and for a D1 college as well. After wearing a one-piece at all my practices, I find bikinis so annoying—they fall off, the strings get tangled and I can never find a matching pair! The Nike cutout suits are my favorites! They have an open back so you can get a nice tan, but are supportive so you can stay active in the sun. I'm not one to just lay on a towel for hours, so I need a bathing suit that will move with me (without being scared I will flash someone!)" - Amanda Letchko, Fashion Assistant
