Swimsuit Season: Our Favorite One Piece Swimsuits

I've always prefered bikinis.  Mainly because it's always been hard for me to find one-pieces that fit properly.  I'm 5'11, so yeah, I'm on the taller side.   Most one piece swimsuits tend to run short.  This makes it especially hard to find one that fits if you have a longer…
