Best. Swimsuit. Ever.

Earlier this month I wrote a post about the hundreds of dresses for sale on Modcloth.com and while browsing the site, I saw that they have a big selection of vintage inspired swimwear.  I've done a post about this style of swimsuit back in April, and sure wish I'd known about this site at the time.

Thanks to literally hundreds of positive reviews and a recommendation from a reader who purchased one, I decided to give the Esther Williams Bathing Beauty style swimsuit a try.  I am now the proud owner of the wine colored one piece and I love it.


I've been wearing a halter style two-piece with regular bottoms for years, and they're alright, but I wanted to see how I liked a one-piece style and I think it looks better with my body.  The suit is very forgiving and gives me a great shape and a lot more confidence.  I was worried that it would look like I'm ashamed of myself and trying to cover up, but I think it's definitely more vintage pinup than granny.  This is definitely an investment ($89) but the quality is fantastic and doesn't compare to the thin $29 versions at Target and is still cheaper than the $129 styles at Macy's and Dillard's.  Plus, all the suits come in a huge range of sizes (0-26) so nobody is left out.

I don't get overly excited about many things I buy, so know that I'm seriously in love with this suit.  Even you've rocked a bikini for years, I encourage you to give this style a shot and see how it looks.  I was shocked to see myself in such a good light and now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go to the pool with my giant sunglasses.

  1. Amen! I'm loving the Beach Blanket Bingo One Piece in Black/White Polka Dot I got from Modcloth! I'm a 38DDD/40DD, and it supports my bust nicely.

  2. I love this style of swimsuit. I usually don't do a one piece- but I do think it looks so cute! I do see it being very vintage pin up- hot!
