Most versatile: Oséree
Oséree is a super luxury Italian brand, featuring two-pieces and maillots such as the Power Body swimsuit famous for its fashion-forward cap sleeves, and Lumiére Deep-V maillot with a daring open back. These products have quickly made fans out of celebrities like Dua Lipa and Rihanna. There is a tip that the maillots are so well-crafted that you can double-up as a bodysuit in the evening. And while we usually love the adult styles, it is the sparkly pint-sized versions of these looks that make us love Oséree.

These suits last year after year, and not just aesthetically. In addition, the quality fabric also helps to retain its stretch for years.
