Return of the One-Piece Bathing Suit
Posted on June 28 2008
Now don't get me wrong; I love bikinis as much as the next girl, but there are times when I want a little more coverage; say for example, family vacations or trips to the waterpark. It's nice to feel demure in a sea of teeny weeny bikinis that demand a brazilian. In the past, I've had a hard time finding a cute, flattering one-piece that wasn't created with either an olympic swimmer or a 50 year old in mind. You know the ones I'm talking about - huge padded cups inserted into the bodice, skirt attached, invariably fashioned out of tropical print lycra. Nothing against these suits, which certainly have their place in the market, but when you want something a little more youthful, where do you go? Well, good news - we have three amazing one-piece suits in stock (and one more on the way) that bridge the gap between basic speedo tank and grandma's swimdress.
Araks Petra One-Piece (featured in the Willamette Week's Juicy Suits article) - Sexy, elegant suit with halter neck, center ruching and keyhole front- 'nuff said.
Escale Tank Suit with Removable Straps (pictured above) - This simple, strapless one-piece features optional straps and an adjustable side buckle, with convenient rubber backing to keep it from slipping down. Available in a beautiful slate gray that flatters any skin tone.
Marina Backless Tank with Removable Straps - Flirty and fun, this suit has removable side ties and straps with a unique open-back design. Available in Ivory with contrasting black and tan stripes.
Fish One-Piece with Hidden Wires - For a little more support, you can't beat the hidden underwire in this adorable fish-printed, navy blue one-piece, scheduled to arrive any day now!
