There are more ways to feel sexy on the beach than wearing a revealing bikini. In the past few years, one-pieces have shirked their reputation for being prudish thanks to ultra-low backs and plunging necklines, and now there’s a new—old?—cut in town that’s taking things to a new level: the frong. Swimsuit brands are cutting one-pieces that look straight out of the ’80s, complete with a high cut on the upper thigh that shows off your thighbrow. Flattering on many body types, the silhouette works with styles that range from minimalist chic to Malibu Barbie, and is especially great for those who don’t want to show off their midriff.. Shop 13 styles we love, ahead.
Bandaeu One Piece
Contrast color blocking give this suit an ’80s mall feel, but in the best way possible. If Malibu Barbie wanted to jazzercise on the beach she’d wear this.
Super Scoop One Piece Swimsuit
This is one of my favorite swimsuits. Ever. The quality fabric feels more expensive than just $22, and the cut flatters your waist without giving you a muffin top.
Checkerboard One Piece
Nothing is racier than this checkerboard swimsuit, complete with a low back, an ab-baring cutout, and an ultra-high thigh.
This swimsuit is for hyper-minimalists. There are no frills, but it still packs major heat.
O-Ring Belted Swimsuit
This chic suit belongs on the French Riviera. It is relatively modest, but its high-cut is suggestively sexy.
Nancy Stretch-Knit One-Shoulder Swimsuit
Hunza G makes some of the most form-flattering cuts. We love her knit one-pieces, which all feature a higher thigh.
Denim doesn’t normally belong in the pool, but Solid & Striped has changed our minds.
Asymmetric Colorblock Suit
An asymmetric bodice running parallel to the high thigh cut makes for an ultra-sexy but also flattering cut.
Core Ribbed One-Piece Swimsuit
If you’re looking for simplicity and color, a suit from Somthing Navy’s collaboration with Nordstrom is for you.
Double down on the wild style in an animal-print suit.
Tangerine looks good on almost every complexion, so shop now before this budget-buy sells out.
Suspender Marissa bikini
A suspender style that’s meant for the ‘gram.
Nobody loves a thigh-high cut more than our girl Emily Ratajkowski. In fact, she has her own line of swimwear that showcases her love for hip-baring suits.
