Sometimes these posts are born out of necessity rather than a trend. Truth is, I need a couple new one-piece bathing suits for the summer since I have to face the cold, hard truth…my bikini days are behind me. Even though I have managed to lose quite a bit of weight recently (mostly baby) and am actually almost back to where I was at my wedding five years ago, I’ve since had two children and there is now some extra skin on my stomach that will never be tight again without a tummy tuck, no matter how many crunches I do or Core Fusion classes I take.
Personally I find Miracelsuits very uncomfortable and think most one-piece suits are ugly. My husband’s one request: NO SOLID BLACK SUITS! Um, hello? We all know that black makes us look thinner. Now what? I have to find some one-piece bathing suits that don’t suck. By that I mean ones that don’t appear athletic with a ‘Speedo’ logo, or look too matronly. I’m attracted to interesting patterns, cuts and if it’s a solid color, details. So I searched and searched. Sidebar: since when did swimwear begin being priced northwards of $500? Personally I think that’s a colossal waste of money (money better spent on a bag or shoes), but whatever. Here are 10 one-piece bathing suits that don’t suck:
1. ASOS Plunge Backless Suit, $60.88
6. Tommy Bahama Brocade-Print One-Piece, $142
9. Mouille One Shoulder Wrap One Piece Swimsuit, $146.12
