Swimwear Must Have: Maillot One-Piece

During my recent trip down to Los Angeles there was some quality beach time with my best friend. My favorite part about going to the beach? The people watching! From teenagers sneaking a beer to wide-eyed tourists surprised by the water’s temperature to blasé locals with their perfected routine. It’s always fun to check out the various warm-weather styles making an appearance.

And who was the most memorable woman on the beach that day? It wasn’t the skimpy bikini clad Europeans near the lifeguard station or the sporty surfers carrying their boards – It was a pregnant woman who passed us on her morning walk.

What was so striking about her? It was a combination of factors including glowing, healthy skin, her perfect dancer’s posture, and the classic, oh-so-chic black one-piece swimsuit she was wearing. She may have been 7-8 months pregnant, but we couldn’t take our eyes off of her.

Which got me thinking about the classic one-piece swimsuit that always seems to be in vogue year after year. Whether you love a retro silhouette a la Katherine Hepburn in Philadelphia Story or something sporty and modern, there’s a great maillot out there for you this season!

Classic:

Are you looking for a flattering swimsuit that you can wear season after season? Try a simple but chic one-piece in a solid color, subtle print, or a classic design like stripes or polka dots.

  2. I love the Roberto Cavalli! I have several 1 piece swimsuits, and they are my favorites now. I love strapless ones so my tan stays even across my shoulders.
