Today's post is a guest post from Bea Bonte talking about swimsuits because let's be honest, I'm 5 month pregnant and probably not the best person to talk about this subject. ;) Without further ado, here's Bea!
As swimsuit season rolls around again, I’m certain I am in good company when I say, I dread shopping for swimwear. This year, I took a different approach and dove headfirst into the one- piece trend. If you haven’t tried one yet, I’m begging you to reconsider. It’s a whole new world! Luckily for us, we are no longer restricted to the options of “competitive swimwear” or the overly conservative “grandma suits”. One-pieces can be fun, cute, and SO comfortable!
Being able to swim without the fear of losing a top or bottom gives you a real peace of mind. Less time worrying about your swimsuit functions means more time for fun!
The options are endless and I have come across so many different styles, cuts, and patterns of one-pieces it really feels like there is something for everyone. This summer I picked a few of my favorites and can’t wait to buy more!
I have found so many good options on amazon and prime 1-day shipping really helps when you are in a last minute swimsuit emergency!
Here are some of my favorites this season:Cupshe Fashion Women's Floral Printing One-piece Swimsuit Beach Bathing Suit
The structure on top gives me support and offers some push up. The straps are adjustable- which means ladies of different heights can fix it to their liking. I love the floral print and it feels feminine without being cheesy. This is my go-to for family trips and events that I want a little more coverage but don’t want to sacrifice style.
Next Up:Cupshe Fashion Women's Stripe Printing Open Back with Lace Up Padding One Piece Swimsuit, Blue
I’m a big fan of stripes and the blue and white gives this suit a nautical feel. I love the back detail which is adjustable so i can make the top as tight as I need. This top is lightly padded and feels really secure in all of the key areas. The cut out up top is small but shows just the right amount of skin. The best part about these two suits is I don’t feel like I am constantly re-adjusting and everything stays in place :)Womens Halter V Neck Lace One Piece Monokini Crochet Swimsuits Swimwear
I love this suit because of the simplicity and the lace. I’ve seen a bunch of suits like this online and finally pulled the trigger. The little bit of lace against the black is a perfect contrast without being too bold. I’m a huge fan of the simple back- plain black can be so classic and timeless and it really doesn’t need any extra frills. This suit is easy to pair with jean shorts or a dressier cover up and add some jewelry for an ultra glam look. It’s just so versatile! I’d advise taller ladies to size up since this tends to run a little short. This suit is one I would wear if my activity level was to be a little lower. It’s just a little less all purpose the my other options, but oh so pretty!
This suit is definitely the most daring in my collection but maybe one of my faves. I sought this one out for months because I NEEDED to have it for my bachelorette party last summer. This suit is so fun with a little edge and is surprisingly comfortable. Higher cut and not lined- this suit is very simple. They do have this option in black which might be a little more practical for swimming and longer term use. Pair this white option with destroyed denim and it’s perfect for a fun beach day.
I’m so excited for the new trend of one-pieces and love seeing them pop up all over the place. There are tons of styles and so many reasonably priced options that you can’t help but browse for hours. Take a look and try one out- I promise you won’t regret it!
