A few days ago, I wrote a post about how to get over feeling afraid to wear a bikini on the beach and discovered that a lot of you girls aren’t really into bikinis – you’re into one-piece bathing suits! Of course, being the shopping addict that I am, I was immediately intrigued. I started checking out the selection of one-piece bathing suits out there and found some seriously cute ones.
I’m not going to lie – I haven’t worn a one-piece in a very long time. I started wearing bikinis in high school and never turned back. But looking at these adorable swimsuits, I may just have to reconsider what I wear… these are awesome! So, even if you’ve never been into one-pieces, give these a shot. You might be surprised! Take a look at these 15 picks you need to buy… and I’m sorry in advance to your bank account.
