Hit the surf and sand in style with these eye-catching monokinis

If you've got room for one more swimsuit to complete your summer collection, make it a monokini. The figure-flattering design covers up the area of your stomach that is most hard to tone, and cutouts highlight your feminine figure. We searched and sorted through the highest user reviews, blogger favorites, fashion editor picks and more to find the top ten suits, ranging from playful and fun to sexy and serious, so you can shop with assurance. And best of all – we love the transitional nature of the monokini, as they look just as great tucked into shorts as they do on their own.
