It’s that time of year guys: swimsuit season! Which means I’m in need of some summertime swimsuit inspiration.
As much as I love summertime and all the countless hours spent by the pool, I’d be lying to you if I said I didn’t dread swimsuit shopping. And it’s not even that wearing a swimsuit is the worst thing in the world, but something about buying them is just straight up painful. I blame fluorescent lighting and crumby mirrors, but whatevs…
And let’s be honest, swimsuit shopping after a baby is a whole new experience! My postpartum swimsuit definitely needs to go, since I’m swallowed by it now (and with baby girl pulling at it all the time I don’t need to be giving anyone a free show), and I’m pretty sure my pre-baby bikinis will never fit my body the right way ever again. #acceptance
But this all works out just fine for me because for some reason this year I have been gravitating towards the one piece.
Maybe it’s the mom in me not wanting to worry about anything popping out while I’m running after my toddler, or the fact that no matter how much baby weight I lose bikinis and I just aren’t getting along. Either way, I’m breaking my mold, and embracing one pieces all the way.
I feel like one pieces get a bad rap, but I’ve seen so many cute ones lately. Whether it’s retro, bright prints or crochet, there are tons of fun options out there for you to choose from.
I checked out a few of my go-to places for one piece shopping and came up with some pretty cute finds!
I ended up scoring my two new pieces at Target (surprise, surprise). One is a little retro, one has the bright bold prints while both are super flattering. Now I feel ready for a summer full of beach trips and play dates at the pool. Bring it on!
What are you leaning towards for swimsuits this summertime, bikinis, tankinis, or are you with me on the one pieces? Give me some more inspiration in the comments below!
