Bandeau one pieces | My Bikini MusthavesI don’t wear bandeau one pieces very often but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a must-have right? If you’re a bikini girl, go out of your comfort zone and try these type of bathing suits. You might not believe it, but it looks better than you maybe think at first.

Bandeau one pieces aren’t only for new moms lol. New moms you ask? Yes, women that just had a baby swear by bandeau one pieces because of two reasons: they hide stretch marks and possible leftovers of a pregnancy belly, and they’re super easy for breastfeeding!

But before you can only think of crying babies and spilling breastmilk the next time you’re wearing a bandeau one piece, let me help you with finding a perfect one for you.

Bandeau one pieces | My Bikini MusthavesBandeau one pieces | My Bikini MusthavesA bandeau one piece might be a bit plain or -can we say that word- boring, so my advice is not to choose a solid color without any fancy details. Nothing wrong with solid colors in one pieces but look for nice detailing like cut-outs or hand embroidered fabric. One of the brands that has both basic as striking strapless one pieces is Eres (check their styles here)

With patterned bandeau one pieces you can totally go for styles with a lower back side or fashionable hardware that adds to your look. And last but not least, don’t ever wear the removable straps that you received with the one piece unless you have cup size double F’s. It’s not doing something extra for your look and it will make your shoulders look wider. Trust me on this one.Bandeau one pieces | My Bikini MusthavesThis Dancing Blue one piece from the 2016 Ondademar collection is also available in other (bikini) styles. I’m wearing a size XS in these images but I normally wear size small, so it was a bit hard to get in this one piece because it’s very tight and fitted around your body. That’s why I was very happy with the back strings!

I know this might not be your go-to style but I’d say give it a try! I promise you will feel real good in it and you will look amazing! I know Nordstrom and Net-A-Porter always has beautiful pieces. If you still have any doubts, let me know in the comments below and I will try to help you the perfect one piece for you.

Love, Gala
