Martha Stewart Wore a White One-piece Swimsuit on the Cover of Sports Illustrated — Shop the Look From $34 TOut

Travel + Leisure / Reese Herrington

Martha Stewart welcomed summer by posing for the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition in a plunging white one-piece, making her the oldest model to ever do so, and inspiring a new vacation look among travelers. 

If a white bathing suit is now on your packing list, you’re not alone. But we know how easy it is to get lost in the hunt for a one-piece that has all the Martha vibes without the high price tag. So, we’ve combed through some of our favorite retailers to find white swimwear that is comfortable enough to wear for hours at the beach, but also something that shoppers have found to be supportive and flattering. What’s also great about our white finds — whether you’re embracing the white hot trend on a tropical vacation or you’re a bride-to-be celebrating a bachelorette — is that they are so dazzling that you can throw a pair of shorts over your suit and have an outfit that will take you to brunch and beyond.

We have narrowed your search to these 10 affordable Martha look-alikes from Nordstrom, Target, and Amazon, including ruffled necklines, strappy backs, and yes, the deep plunge, starting at just $34. 

La Blanca Cross Back One-Piece Swimsuit

LA BLANCA Cross Back One-Piece Swimsuit


With full coverage in the back, and figure-sculpting banding around the waist, this eye-catching white suit is simple yet elegant. Made from a nylon and elastane blend, there is enough comfort and support to cannonball into your favorite lake. The lined suit has removable soft cups. A strappy back adds beautiful detail to an already stunning suit, and makes for a “pull-on” fit versus fastening any clasps or ties.

One shopper wrote that they tried on 40 bathing suits when searching for the right one and this was the “only one” that was “comfortable and flattering,” adding that the removable cups are “perfectly shaped,” so the outline doesn’t show through the suit when it gets wet. Another reviewer said the swimwear “fits like a glove” and they feel supported while “swimming laps.”

Cupshe V Neck Lace Up One Piece Swimsuit

Cupshe Women's V Neck Lace Up One Piece Swimsuit


Let’s face it, part of the reason some people are skeptical of white bathing suits is that the material isn’t always thick enough to provide the coverage that helps us feel confident. But, this nylon ribbed bathing suit has a textured look, making the swimsuit sleek without being see-through.

The lace-up V-neck is adjustable to fit your own level of comfort, with a crisscross back that also has adjustable straps. In terms of support, the suit has removable cups, and one shopper finds the one piece “very supportive.” Other reviewers are also pleased with the swimsuit. One wrote the fabric is “so comfortable” and “very flattering.” Another said it’s their “new favorite bathing suit.”

Shade & Shore Double O-Ring with Lace-Up Back One-Piece Swimsuit

Shade & Shore Double O-Ring with Lace-Up Back One Piece Swimsuit


For those who prefer the “extra cheeky” look, this is the suit for you. The off-white material is made from a nylon and spandex blend, offering enough stretch to keep you comfortable as you go between the waves and the sand. The back of the swimsuit is secured with drawstring ties, which are completely adjustable. In the front, the peek-a-boo cut-out is accompanied by double o-rings for a touch of fun and sophistication. Customize your support with removable padding.

One shopper purchased the suit for a vacation and called it “very chic” and “very comfortable,” while being “just enough classy as it is sassy.” Another reviewer said they “feel secure” in the bathing suit, and a third shopper found the suit to be the “perfect amount of support and coverage.”

To buy:, $42 

La Blanca Off-the-Shoulder One-Piece Swimsuit

LA BLANCA Off the Shoulder One-Piece Swimsuit


For an off-the-shoulder look, this ruffled neckline pull-on suit offers a different style than the typical cuts we see. The nylon and elastane blend suit features subtle but flattering ruching with moderate back coverage and cute lacing detail along the back.

One shopper said they are writing their review from a beach in Tulum and “loving the suit.” They also shared that they’d packed another suit but this one was their “go-to.” A shopper in her 50s said she was looking for a “flattering swimsuit” and this one “does the trick.”

To buy:, $130

Mesh cut-out swimsuits seem to become more popular each season, and this one can be worn two ways: either  as a one-shoulder suit or two-shoulder once the second adjustable strap is added.

Polyester and spandex material help make this a suit you can move in without tugging or readjusting. While there is no plunging neckline here, the cut-outs bring a bit of playfulness to the swimwear.

One shopper said the suit “exceeded” their expectations while another reviewer wrote the material is “so comfortable.” A 60-year-old shopper said they “feel pretty” in the one-piece and brought it on a cruise.
