Fashion Friday: Flattering Swimsuits That Don’t Skimp on Style

I’m not usually one to look forward to trying on bathing suits but we’ve had such a long drawn out winter I am over it! Bring on the sunscreen and chlorine and sunshine!

I actually put on a bathing suit last weekend for the first time as we hit a glorious 80 degrees here in Nashville. I’m looking forward to some pool time with my family this summer. Although we don’t have a pool, my sister’s new apartment does and it’s already open!

If you’re like me and you want to have a little more coverage than a string bikini because you’ve slacked on Pilates (ok you’re like me and you’ve never freaking done one Pilates move but you swear you will some day) but you still want to look stylish at the pool, there are some gorgeous flattering swimsuits that don’t skimp on style to be found. Ruching is your friend…remember this. Ruching. I’m also a big fan of halter necklines in swimwear. I hate the word tankini (I mean really, TANK is not a flattering word people), but there are also a lot of cute tankinis on the market.

Here are some cute one-piece bathing suits…nothing Mama Frump here…I’ve scouted out for you as well as a great rashguard from Old Navy, perfect for the beach if you are doing any kind of water sports or activity and you don’t want things spilling out and I don’t mean drinks! If you’re a Nashville girl like me, check out Blue Bohemian in Belle Meade. They have great beach and swimwear.

Did somebody say drinks?

Cheers to spring! I’m off to do some crunches on my yoga ball. 😉
