I'm Very Picky About Swimsuits, but This Amazon One-Piece Has Been My Favorite for Years
I've tested dozens of swimsuits over the past few years as part of my job as a shopping editor, but I keep coming back to the same one.
When I first discovered Hilor's one-shoulder swimsuit in 2018, I loved its unique one-shoulder design, its subtle ruching, and its elegant look. Years later, it's still my go-to bathing suit, and it's one of my favorite Amazon finds of all time. It's the only swimsuit that makes me feel confident and put-together. Now it's racked up more than 13,000 five-star ratings—and it's Amazon's second best-selling swimsuit overall.
The stretchy spandex suit comes in 45 colors and prints, including classic black, punchy pink, an array of florals and beach palm prints. And they all come with that single elegant ruffle draped along the neckline and shoulder that's fun without being over-the-top.
For beach and pool wear, I tend to gravitate towards more modest pieces, which is part of the reason I love this Amazon find. Its shelf-bra and removable padding provide support while its higher neckline and not-skimpy bottom offer coverage that makes me feel comfortable. And its thick strap keeps everything in place, so it's great for swimming—even through rough waves.
And unlike some other one-piece styles, it looks and feels anything but matronly. Its fashion-forward and versatile design works with all kinds of coverups, and it's easy to transition from the beach to a party or dinner. In fact, I've worn it to all kinds of fun events with a breezy skirt—and no one has guessed that it's a swimsuit. Friends and strangers always pay it compliments and ask where I found this gem of a swimsuit.
Thousands of other Amazon shoppers have also raved about this gorgeous suit, so you know it's got to be good. It has received a near-perfect rating overall, and the vast majority of owners gave it a five-star rating for its comfort, quality, fit, and flattering design. Reviewers call it "unbelievably flattering" and "the perfect suit."
"All I can say is this is the first time in years that I was excited about a swimsuit and willing to wear it with confidence," one reviewer wrote. "I literally got the suit in the mail today and put it on, went to the pool, and didn't bother with a cover up."
The brand included a size chart in the product listing, so you'll want to consult the guide before ordering. Like me, most reviewers ordered one size up and recommend that for a comfortable fit.
Prior to this purchase, I frequented department stores to find bathing suits and ended up paying hundreds of dollars for one-pieces. The $45 price point on this one was much more attractive, and right now, it's on sale and going for $29.
The suit I purchased three years ago is still in perfect condition, so I don't need another one, but that probably won't stop me from investing in another color—just for fun.
