As soon as I saw this swimsuit, I knew I had to have it. White is my absolute favorite color as far as swimwear goes, and this one couldn’t be more perfect: it’s low-cut and backless with just the right amount of cheekiness on the bum. Even though it’s a one-piece, this suit has plenty of sex appeal.
I am also a huge fan of spaghetti straps (in fact, I hope to wear a spaghetti strap wedding gown one day); I love how delicate they look, plus they accentuate the collarbones. This suit has classic spaghetti straps, but one is adorned with ultra-femme pink flower appliqués. Though it is eye-catching, it’s far from flashy, so I feel this suit is girly in a grownup way.
Although I tend to have tomboy-inspired style (I can’t live without my ripped jeans or oversized button-downs), I love to get girly from time to time. When the weather gets chilly, I go for skirts and stockings, but during the summertime, I am all about sexy swimwear.
Additionally, it’s always cool to support small, up-and-coming designers. I purchased this piece via Poshmark from a user named ninaroserusso who hand-sews this suit, as well as a few other similar ones (including a matching ‘kini).
This suit is feminine and fashionable, but because it’s a one-piece, it’s also practical! It’s comfortable while swimming, and it’s also great for relaxing poolside with a book or mag. I believe this suit is also simple enough that it’ll never go out of style, so I can’t wait to break it out next summer, too!
