Now that beach weather is upon us here in New England, I’ve been peeking around looking for new swimwear. For some reason, I can’t bring myself to shop for new beach attire in the Spring when it’s overflowing in stores. I always wait until I’m mentally (and physically) prepared – which is usually around the time the weather here is actually warm enough to go to the beach.  Unfortunately, by this time there’s nothing good left on the racks! And so… I dutifully turn to my good old friend, the internet, and start my swimwear shopping online.

This season I find myself drawn to stylish, one piece bathing suits. I’m not confident I could pull one of these off, especially on local beaches. But the more I thought about it… I’ve decided these would be more appropriate as vacation swimwear. Honeymoon anyone?? Strangely, I feel more apt to be bold with my fashion choices when on vacation. Maybe because I don’t know anyone? And although one pieces cover more, they can definitely be sexy. So, yes. I’m sold.  My fave finds this week are definitely fit for honeymoon swimwear.

Lets start with my retro-inspired swimwear faves…

What are your thoughts on the good old one piece swimsuit?  Would you wear one on your honeymoon or at a local beach? Let me know in the comments!  My one hitch when it comes to one pieces?  Tan lines.  If I DO muster up the courage to strut the beaches wearing one of the styles above, I think I’d have to commit to that fit for the whole season. Otherwise, I’d have one paaaaale belly if I switched to a bikini!
