8 Gorgeous Maillots ...

By Jennifer

Think of all the reasons you’ll have soon to wear a swimsuit — spring break, mid-winter vacation, winter holiday, weekend getaway — and then take a look in your dresser at that old out-of-date swimsuit. Girl, it’s time for something new! Grab your favorite sunglasses and sandals, and head to your nearest Anthropologie store (or their website)… here are 8 gorgeous maillots.

1 Bathing Beauty Maillot

Bathing Beauty MaillotPrice: $278.00 at
Truly, this maillot flatters every body type, flaunting the curves you have (with underwire support) and skimming over the spots you’re not so fond of. It comes in three fabulous colors — red, navy, and dark grey — and would look marvelous with a sheer linen cover-up and retro-inspired sunglasses.

2 Capture Gaze Maillot

Capture Gaze MaillotPrice: $144.00 at
Capture the gaze of all of the other pool-side sunbathers (with your sunscreen, of course) in this beautiful bandeau (with detachable halter strap). It features strategically placed white stripes on a black background, high cut legs, and a sleek shape. I’d wear this with bright yellow accessories…

3 Drawn to the Heart Maillot

Drawn to the Heart MaillotPrice: $138.00 at
Adorned with a singular seashell, each of the swimsuits in this line by Tori Praver are sweet, romantic, and oh-so-flattering! Note the detachable halter strap, ruching at the sides, and choice of colors: mint green, dove grey, and black.

4 New World Maillot

New World MaillotPrice: $178.00 at
This stunning maillot is made in Brazil by Aqua De Coco and features a soft, terrycloth-like fabric printed with a vintage-inspired map… perhaps a treasure map? Or maybe just a map to your favorite winter-time getaway destination… there’s a removable halter strap and underwire shaping, too.

5 Swept Sash Maillot

Price: $158.00 at
Tie the long, fluttery sash at the waist of this maillot in the back or off to one side, either way, it’s sure to draw both admirers and compliments. The suit itself is made of soft polyamide and spandex, with a scoop back and twisty bust. Choose from mossy grey-green or black.

6 Sea Anemone Maillot

Price: $158.00 at
While other, louder sea creatures tend to get a lot of the attention, humble anemones are content merely to decorate your favorite swimsuit, all in hues of modest black, white, and grey. Their all-over print makes this swimsuit slimming and flattering, especially when paired with the sweetheart neckline and slightly padded bust. Gorgeous!

7 Bohemia Treasure One-Piece

Price: $188.00 at
How incredibly sexy! This one-piece proves that sometimes showing a little less skin is better. It’s made of an inky blue tie-dye pattern with a beaded detail at the bust along an alluring notch. It ties bhind the neck, and would look stunning with brown sunglasses and straw-heeled wedges.

8 Natalie One-Piece

Natalie One-PiecePrice: $148.00 at
This is my new favorite maillot, supremely flattering (note the ruching at the sides and the forgiving boy-short legs), available in sweet black and white polka dots, plain black, or slate grey. It ties at the neck, halter style, and features a twist detail at the bust. I must have one!

With so many gorgeous maillots to choose from, in so many styles, there’s no reason to wear that ratty old swimsuit poolside or at the beach anymore! Which of these one-piece swimsuits do you like best, and why? Please let me know!
