They're a modest solution for parents who don't want their young daughters to wear revealing two-pieces; and they're suitable for grown women who like the convenience of a two-piece suit with almost the full coverage of a one-piece.
I would say my absolute favorite would be the one-piece, either with a splice in the chest that dips all the way down, showing the belly button, or with a chunk of fabric missing in the middle, again revealing the belly button.
Instead, it's wise to focus more on how you feel about yourself, maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle instead of being anxious over how you look in a bathing suit, whether it's a one-piece or a skimpy two-piece.
Album covers like Wild Texas Wind show Dolly in daring lingerie, but we can see that she's not much of a beach girl: the Internet is strangely bare of any photographs of Dolly Parton in a two-piece or one-piece swimsuit.
The one-piece swimsuit will remain popular with designers for as long as women avoid gyms and suffer childbirth, but for the 2007 swimwear season, Dolce & Gabbana is offering a rich array of one-pieces.
