Just like a solid pair of opaque leggings, a black one-piece bathing suit is a wardrobe staple for any healthy gal—especially if your ideal beach day involves a workout (or at least actually getting in the water) in addition to the requisite towel time.

The major appeal of an LBS is the same as its activewear counterpart: It has the ability to be both universally flattering and versatile (because hey, you never know when someone will invite you out for a SUP yoga sesh).

This season the classic maillot takes a modern turn by combining stylish details—think sexy cut-outs, perforated patterns, and plunging necklines—with activewear technology (be it compression fabrics, power-mesh, or quick-drying materials). The result? A suit that’s both sporty and chic.

Here are 10 super-stylish black one-piece suits that you can actually get active in.
