There's something about a one-piece swimsuit that's just so sexy, don't you think?

Sure, you're generally more covered up than you would be in a bikini, but that just adds to the allure and mystery. One-piece swimsuits bring to mind the bombshell Bond girls of the past (read: Domino and her amazing mesh-insert bathing suit). And if one-pieces are okay for Bond girls, they're definitely okay for us.

We can't deny how flattering they can be either -- for those of us trying to cover up the areas we're not quite ready to show off, these types of suits are great. With features like ruching, underwire cups, and even corset-like seaming, these bathing suits can hug all body types in all the right places.

But before you buy yourself a sexy new swimsuit, let us warn you about all those excessively strappy ones on the market. They might look great in the changeroom, and all the power to you if you can rock them, but you're going to want to load up on the sunscreen so as to not end up looking like this.

Whatever your style, we think there's a one-piece out there for everyone. Take a look at some of our favourites:
