More Swimsuits



Still swimsuit hunting. I've been all about the tankinis for the last few summers, but I'm feeling the one piece this year. I am in love with this ruffle-y one by Juicy Couture. It's pricey and would be a complete splurge for me, but isn't it gorgeous? I prefer it in blue, but am including the pink shot so you can see what the back looks like. This is the best modern take on a retro swimsuit I've seen. And all that ruching has to be so slimming.



I've tried on this custom one from Lands' End and it is beautiful. Very well-made (and good detailing) with fantastic fabric that keeps my tummy in check. And I love the greek-maze-like pattern — less boring than basic black, but doesn't draw too much attention. Possibly more low-cut than I want, but I'm so flat chested it hardly matters — there's nothing to see.

I'll let you know what else I find.

I love that Juicy one. Too much for me though...so I went with Shade clothing this year. Of course, being a personal shopper for them has its perks, but the swim line this year is so great!

The Juicy one is cute. As a single dad, I'm definitely looking when I'm at the beach, especially at moms in hopes they are single! (I'm the fit guy in board shorts who's there with my two teens)

I SO splurged on the turquoise juicy one with some birthday money. I have already worn it once and I LOVE IT. I have NEVER felt good in a swimsuit, EVER, but I do in this one. I did not know it came in pink, or I might have gotten that one. But, serious self esteem in that suit LADIES!!! BUY IT! BUY IT NOW!

I like the first one by Juicy, but I have to say that I usually prefer suits with a little more coverage on the bottom. I really like the "skirt" look.
