One-piece swimsuits have made a major comeback — styles these days are more sleek, fun, and stylish than ever. Basically, these aren't your mother's pool suits. It seems like there's a one-piece style for everyone... unless you're a little too tall for a regular-size suit. I've lamented my struggle to find cute jumpsuits for tall girls before, but that's nothing compared to trying to find long torso one-piece swimsuit.
Here's the thing. There's so much more at stake when you're wearing a one-piece swimsuit that's not quite long enough. There's a wardrobe malfunction possible with every adjustment, whether you're wiggling the torso down or stretching the top up, if you know what I'm saying. Besides, there are few things more uncomfortable than a swimsuit that's too tight in length.
Pretty much every year, I go on a mission to find chic new one-piece swimsuits for tall girls. And pretty much every year, I end up mainly disappointed, with maybe a good find or two. Two brands I've had relatively good luck with when it comes to tall swimsuits are J. Crew and ASOS — but even so, pickings are slim compared to regular-sized one-piece suits.
But I'm not ready to give up yet. Here are nine one-piece swimsuits with long torsos, because tall girls want in, too. After all, the trend is here to stay for summer 2017 — and probably years after that.
