Tan lines and tanning are a completely different thing. I'm not for cooking yourself in the sun at all... but you'd get some ridiculous tan lines if you wore some one piece suits, opposed to a bandeau bikini. Dark skin or pale skin, there's nothing worse than someone wearing a gorgeous evening gown with a great big white mark up their back from where they've had a racerback cossie on!

i've started to get on the band wagon of one pieces. granted for me they don't always work but i think that they are sexy and they are current. you don't feel like you're hiding anymore with them.

As a swimwear designer for P9 Sun Culture, I like to agree with emalove, some one-pieces are nice, but I don't think they're flattering on that many people. For designers have the responsibility to develop a line with one-pieces and bikinis, also tankinis, cover-ups following the same trend directions and group themes. This way if a consumer prefers one or the other she enjoy the option to chose her favorite fabric, trimmings, colors and prints on both one-piece and two-piece. Lupercio Machado

Sonia Vera debuted a line of swim wear for last night's L.A. Fashion Week kick-off event that made me a one piece devotee!!

The one piece is essential for me, since I work as a lifeguard (: Plus it emphasizes the long lines and curves of my fantastic legs, esp since I'm petite I don't think swimsuits in general are flattering on many people, emalove.

Two, but with coverage for me - tankini please!

i wish there was an "other" option, I looooove one peices but i simply cannot wear them,. I have DD cups and a 32 inch waist and a 41 inch ass. Nothing fits right if it's one peice unless i make it myself.

Oh, I much prefer a two-piece. Some one-pieces are nice, but honestly, I don't think they're flattering on that many people.

amelioratelj I'm with you on embracing my fair skin. As far as bathing suits, normally two pieces but if I found a hot one piece maybe.

It's been easier for me to find a more fitting two piece rather than one, but I'm open to anything that's flattering.

I love both! :) But lately, I'm really into sexy, retro-style one pieces. I feel they look wonderful on my figure. As long as it's a bandeau style top though because I hate getting the tan lines.

One pieces make me look fat, I can never pull off that look. Bikinis love my body more:)

I own a monokini (I think that's the technical term :-) )which is a very sexy one piece. I love it because it's still hot but gives me a little security.

I love one pieces- You can dive and actually SWIM in them without the girls falling out-novel! Plus, tanning= cancer/ not fashionable. I'll embrace my beautiful pale skin, thank you!

two pieces! swimsuits might look sexy and sophisticated but they're impractical for tan lines x
