If you would have asked me a couple years ago if I would wear a one piece swimsuit, I would have said no without hesitation. I never wanted to believe it (especially when your parents say, “oh, I wore that as a teenager.’”) but I think certain styles and trends from the past do make a comeback. We’re definitely seeing old styles reinvented, but in a modern way. Think Birkenstocks, Levis cut-offs, sneakers, and even swimwear. I’m so glad I’ve ventured out and tried different swimwear styles because I actually like them and find them more wearable and comfortable. I tried my first high waisted bikini last year (which is my ultimate fav) and went retro with this one piece Splendid suit for summer. One pieces can be tricky, but I love how this one is broken up with stripes, solids, and the neon band right above the waist.

I love a good bikini, but the one piece is stylish and comfortable as well. Plus, it’s a great way to enjoy the beach or the pool even if you’re not quite in tip top bikini shape!
