To be honest, swimsuit season is kind of daunting to me. Sure, I live in California right near the Pacific, and sure, I grew up in Arizona with a swimming pool in my backyard, and sure, I’ve worn a swimsuit more times than I can count. But none of these facts shifts the trepidation of swimsuits in my mind. After trying a number of styles, though, I’ve finally found one that makes me feel confident no matter which beach or backyard I’m sitting in.
The style you ask? One-pieces. While this might seem kind of “safe” or “boring”—and maybe you can make the argument that it is—I don’t happen to agree. To me, it feels very Bond girl and empowering. In the end, one-piece swimsuits just make me feel confident, which is the best thing I can think of feeling when slipping into so little clothes. Ahead see how I’m wearing one-piece swimsuits this season and shop my favorite styles.
