One Piece Swimsuits Can Be Cute!

I’m not one of those mommas who gained 50 pounds with each pregnancy and didn’t get one stretch mark. I got a sh*t ton. But, like most mommas, I take pride in my marks because I know I grew two awesome babes.

As the years have passed, they have faded. But, I won’t lie. I’m super self conscious about them. Now, I’ve worn the occasional two piece swimsuit since the kiddos were born, but I typically opt for the one piece. And it makes me so happy that there are such cute options for one pieces! I have a few of the Juicy Couture swim dresses, but opted for a couple of new suits this season.

First, we have this Robin Piccone Penelope Crochet Overlay suit that I picked up at Nordstrom. It’s the perfect mix of a one piece and two piece. And if you like a full coverage bottom, this suit is for you. I never had to worry about it riding up at all. It does run small though, which most swimsuits do. I typically wear a size 6 in most of my clothes, and I bought this suit in a size 10.

When Jessica Simpson hopped into one of her own swimsuits (the Seashells Bandeau) after losing weight, I wanted to try it on. I was really impressed with how it fit my curves. The suit doesn’t have as much rear coverage as the Robin Piccone, but it still does a good job and didn’t ride up at all when I was walking. I know this may sound silly, but it was kind of annoying when I had to go to the bathroom! I needed to keep the tie in the back tight, so trying to re-tie that myself in the bathroom was a big pain. But, I love the look of this suit, especially when I have a spray tan. It’s also hard to tell in the photo, but the body part of the suit is somewhat shear; it’s lined, but a little shear.

  5. Love them both!!! How did the Jessica Simpson one fit?

    • I sized up from my normal normal clothing size, but I typically do with swimsuits. I read so many review on this suit and they are vary so much. I definitely recommend if you buy it online to be able to return it in case it doesn’t fit.

      • Thanks….since it comes in S,M,L I’m in between a small and medium depending on what clothing what size would you recommend? What type of support is in the bust? Thanks again…

  6. Love the one pieces! I especially love the crotchet one. How did it hold up in the water or when it was soaking wet? Did it sag at all or did it fit snug?


  7. Truly delightful!
