"A one-piece doubles as a bodysuit! Wear one to the beach, then out to dinner with cutoffs and a blazer." - Jenna Gottlieb, Senior Fashion Writer
"I have a three-year-old, so a one-piece is way more practical than a bikini—that is, unless I fancy flashing the whole pool when she pulls my top down!" - Eleanor Strauss, Senior Fashion Editor
"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
"You can play in the ocean and not have to worry about your top or bottom falling off! - Lisa Goldstein, Fashion Market Assistant
"It's the best when you can wear your cool one-piece all day with cutoffs, and then just strip down when you're ready for an impromptu swim…it looks like a cool leotard and is just the best summer uniform of all time." - Megan O'Neill, Associate Beauty Editor
"Because my stomach is hideous." - Anon, mother of two.
"A great thing about one-piece swimsuits is that you can throw on a cute, high-waisted skirt and go straight from the pool or beach to dinner. It can basically double as a bodysuit." - Jane Sung, Lucky Breaks Editor
"Ultimately, my argument in favor of the one-piece can be whittled down to just six words: Lana Del Rey's "Blue Jeans" video." - Elana Fishman, Senior Digital Editor
"Because I can indulge in ice cream and other yummy boardwalk snacks with abandon." - Sarah Ferguson, Assistant Digital Producer
