Swimwear Guide Part 2: One Piece Love

I haven’t owned a one-piece swimsuit since I was in grade school but I’m slowly warming up to the idea.  Since I wasn’t able to snag one of these cute playsuits for my upcoming Hawaii trip, I am considering a little more coverage to avoid nasty surfboard scrapes and giving a free show.

These aren’t your grandma’s suits for aquarobics.  These suits are so loaded with side cut-outs, revealed backs, bustier-style support, and flirty details that you just might turn some heads at the local community centre.  Some of these one-pieces even tease us into thinking they are two-pieces from behind.

Would you risk funny tanlines for one of these suits?

  1. I’m in love with one piece swim suits! All of the style, none of the anxiety of a bikini!

    I love one piece suits!!!! The trouble for me is finding something (for warm water surfing) that’s light and covers both arms and legs. Most of the nice ones (Cynthia Rowley, the other one you linked to.. Seaa I think?) are shorties and don’t go below the knee where I get a lot of my burns :(

    But for everything else other than surfing, I do really love the one piece suits… all your pics are so cute, as usual :)

    P.S… your blog commenting is weird. It’s forcing me to login and use an account… before I used to be able to put in my info and it would work?

  3. I love the blue gingham swimsuit and the last one! Really nice list, well done! ;)
