    If you suffer from perpetual wedgies while wearing one-piece swimsuits, you might be better suited for swimwear specifically designed for people with long torsos. The best long-torso one-piece bathing suits have extra fabric length throughout the mid-section, so they won’t ride up as you walk, swim, or do other activities.

    Our top three long-torso swimsuits

     

    Best overall: Andie Swim Mykonos One Piece LT

    Talia Ergas, Andie

    With a deeply plunging neckline, thick straps, and good bum coverage, this suit has a silhouette that’s highly becoming on a variety of body types. The Mykonos suit is my go-to because it’s super cute, but it also offers decent coverage to keep me secure during the day’s activities. The eco-nylon one-piece comes in nine solid colors, with both smooth and ribbed variations, and it’s available in sizes XS-XXL. I love that when you top it with a sheer beach skirt or a pair of denim cutoffs, it looks just like a cute top that’s perfect for a beach bar.

    Best budget: Lu’s Chic Zip Wetsuit Long-Torso Swimsuit

    Amazon

    We love the zipper detail on this polyester-spandex suit, which comes in sleeveless, cap sleeve, and long-sleeve varieties in a number of colorways and patterns. It’s designed with high-quality rash guard materials and 50+ UPF sun protection, so it’s a favorite long-torso swimsuit to be worn for a day spent oceanside or at the pool. It offers full bottom coverage as well as removable chest padding, and it comes in sizes S-XXL.

    Best for large busts: TA3 Lifty in X-Long

    TA3

    The best swimsuits for large busts offer comfortable support in the chest area without feeling constricting. TA3’s Lifty in X-Long won our top spot overall since it offers a ton of support, comes in cup sizes up to J/K, and is available up to a 4XL. Plus, it even comes in both a regular/tall version and an extra long torso version. Plus, it’s fitted with TA3’s signature corseted back, which means it really pulls your waist in. 

    Here’s what executive editor Sally Kaplan had to say: “The thick shoulder straps are comfy and adjustable, and the cups cradle me perfectly with no digging. It even looks super cute as a bodysuit, so you could theoretically wear it with jeans or flowy linen pants and no one would be the wiser.

    “But I know you’re all here to find out whether it actually does what it promises to do, which is give you a snatched waist. The short answer is: yes! The longer answer is absolutely yes; the lacing in the back actually works like a dream to cinch your waist in. But the good news is that if you’re ever feeling bloated or you just want something a little less compressive, you can always just loosen it up. It’s like having two sizes in one!”

    See our TA3 swimsuit review to find more of our favorite suits (many of which also come in X-Long torso versions). Also, if you’re a fan of the support that the Lifty provides, see our guide to the best underwire swimsuits — most of which, like the Lifty, come in your exact bra size 

    Best for small busts: Left on Friday Peak Suit in Tall

    Left On Friday

    The Peak Suit from Left On Friday is one of the best long-torso swimsuits for those with smaller bust sizes, since it doesn’t have as much chest support as many of the other items on our list. Available in seven hues, this adorable design (with an additional 1.5 inches in the Tall iteration) has a flirty detail in the form of a single cutout below the bust. A low, scoop back adds further interest to the cheeky suit, which comes in sizes XS-XXL.

    Best one-shoulder: Summersalt The Long Torso Sidestroke

    Talia Ergas, Summersalt

    A simple detail like a one-strap design can transform a solid black swimsuit from forgettable to memorable. Or, if you want even more pizzazz, this recycled polyamide-and-elastane-swimsuit (in sizes 2-24)  comes in nine color-blocked and patterned versions to suit every style. It offers full boob support without cups or padding, and it has soft compression in the form of diagonal seaming, which holds everything in place. Better yet: The Long Torso Sidestroke from Summersalt is crafted from post-consumer materials and nylon waste—like old fishing nets—that’s pulled from the ocean.

    Best active: Andie Swim The Malibu One Piece Long Torso

    Talia Ergas/Andie

    The rough and tumble of water sports are no match for the Andie Malibu, which stays well put even if I twist in a variety of positions. I love that you can customize the design: buttoning it up before taking a dive or heading down a water slide, or I can unbutton it when I’m headed to the beach bar. Top it with a pair of shorts and it looks just like a cute top thanks to the fully closed back and thick straps. The recycled nylon-and-spandex-blend suit comes in 11 colors (sizes XS-XXL) in both ribbed and smooth variations. 

    Best wrap: Summersalt The Long Torso Perfect Wrap One Piece

    Talia Ergas, Summersalt

    The double-fabric faux-wrap design in this color-blocked swimsuit, which comes in sizes 2-22, is super flattering on the lower tummy area. It’s crafted with soft compression to keep everything in place even as you splash in the waves or dive off the deep end. I love that this recycled polyamid-and-elastane swimsuit (in four colors, sizes 2-22) offers ample bum coverage plus an extra 1.25 inches of fabric in length, so that I’m never worried about adjusting the bottom throughout the day.

    Best patterned: Boden Santorini Halterneck Swimsuit in Long

    Boden

    If you enjoy a fun pattern on your swimwear, wait until you see this halter-top suit, which comes in 10 eye-catching patterns ranging from a black-and-white pineapple print to a green-blue-and-white tile-inspired design. Further noteworthy details that make it one of our favorite long-torso swimsuits: the silicone tape at the neckline and boning at the side seams provide maximum support while the lightly padded fixed cups give a smooth finish. The polyamide-elastane one-piece bathing suit comes in sizes 2-16/18.

    Best plus-size: Longitude Swim Plus Size Crossover Inset Tank Long Torso One Piece Swimsuit

    Longitude

    With a black-and-white criss-cross design in the front, this nylon-spandex-blend swimsuit offers plenty of eye-catching style. Still, it has ample protection for the girls in the form of thick, adjustable straps and a soft-cup bra. Feel free to dive and jump, because it is staying put throughout all of your intended activities, which is why it’s one of the top swimsuits for long-torsos. It offers a full straight back and a moderate cut around the legs, so wedgies and adjusting your swimsuit bottom are a thing of the past. It comes in sizes 16W-24W.

    Best on Amazon: SWSMCLT Long Torso Tummy Control Bathing Suit

    Amazon

    If you’re inclined towards more wallet-friendly swimwear, try looking among the best swimsuits on Amazon, which tend to have budget-friendly pricetags compared to traditional retail and offer some of the best long torso swimsuits online. This skirted suit has a flattering solid color design, but it gets elevated style points in the form of gold metal rings on either strap. The polyamid-elastane-blend item (in sizes S-22) offers removable padding in the bra area, as well as tummy control around the mid-section. Customers like that this suit offers great bum coverage and has a universally becoming silhouette.

    Best strapless: MiracleSuit Long Torso Avanti Bandeau One Piece Swimsuit

    Miraclesuit

    Though a strapless swimsuit may seem intimidating, don’t be afraid of this one-piece, which was specifically designed with extra length throughout the mid-section and a wired bra to prevent any slips or spill-outs. The nylon-LYCRA spandex suit has a bandeau neckline (with detachable straps in case you do want the added protection), a full straight back, and a moderate leg cut for a bit more bottom coverage. The ruched bodice is meant to flatter curves, and it comes in sizes 8L-18L.

    Best ruffled: J.Crew Long Torso Ruched Ruffle One-piece Swimsuit

    J.Crew

    With a ruffled collar along the plunging neckline, this polyamide-elastane suit (in sizes 0-16) has a bit of extra flair. Ruching along the sides further adds to the one-piece’s figure-flattering touches. It has removable cups, moderate bum coverage, and it’s crafted from recycled materials that would otherwise end up in landfills.
