Let’s be real here, we are all guilty for seeking out the easier options in life and our summer wardrobe is no exception. It’s the season for throw-on-and-go dresses, fuss-free blouses, billowy linen pants and now, the one-piece-slash-top.

Kopper & Zinc swimsuit coming soon.

I used to think that the swimsuit was just a style reserved for real swimmers. They had sporty racerbacks and practically came with their own swimming cap and goggles. I thought if I wore one then the pressure would be on to perform, like I’d have to justify my swimsuit choice and bust out a couple of laps in a stroke that wasn’t doggy paddle. Then I grew up and realised no one cared about what I wore in the pool, so long as I was in fact wearing something. By that time bodysuits were trending and that’s when I realised the one-piece was the multipurpose swim apparel that every woman needs.

Sure, sitting completely naked in a bathroom stall isn’t the most comforting feeling, but once you get over that you can see the pros of the one-piece.

1. It’s one less thing to worry about. No more rummaging through your drawers to find the matching bottoms to your bikini top

2. It doubles as a bodysuit. Go from beach to bar in 60 seconds flat – just add pants

3. Pick the right one and you can say goodbye to annoying clasps forever

4. There’s no chance of it getting lost in the waves when you get barrelled over unexpectedly

5. No uncomfortable waistbands so you can snack all day.
