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.
So are you a fan of one pieces? Have you found any great suits this season?
