First the bad news: Swimsuit season is almost upon us. Now the good news: One-piecers are in again, according to the fashion followers.

The runways and magazines may be rife with anorexic models barely wearing a few inches of fabric, but fear not.

We found a few new styles that will save your, uh, bacon.

The perky polka-dot swim dress by Chaps shown here has a removable halter strap and lightly padded bra. It’s available at Kohl’s.

Other one-piece suits feature forgiving ruching or ombre-shading. Darker color on the bottom … get it? Tankini tops with separate bottoms let you choose your sizes.

So hold your nose and jump in.
