THE BLACK ONE-PIECE

I am swimwear obsessed. Most little kids aspired to be an astronaut or the president, but me? A mermaid. Duh. And I guess some things never change.

I would live in a swimsuit if I could, and with the hundred plus swimsuits in my closet, I could probably get away with it. Bikinis don’t take up a lot of space, but there’s never room for all of them in my suitcase.

Although, there is one swimsuit that always has a spot in my luggage on any tropical getaway –

THE BLACK ONE-PIECE.

Maybe you have noticed on social media, but this swimsuit has been all over the world with me. It is the perfect mix of modest and sexy on the beach. Not only that, but it is timeless. Whatever the trend – neon, strappy, crochet, neoprene – the black one piece has never gone out of style.

It’s a purchase that every woman needs to make. If you don’t believe me, take it from these celebrities and swimwear icons:

The most followed Instagrammer, Selena Gomez, flaunted the same black suit on her Mexican geteway. (photo credit: INFphoto.com)

Plus size icon and Sports Illustrated cover girl, Ashley Graham, showed off her curves in the Secret Agent Black Swimsuit she helped design.

The queen of all things swimwear, Tash Oakley, of A Bikini a Day, rocked the simple beach look as well.

I like my one-pieces high cut with an open back, but everyone has their own preferences! The good news is that there are so many options to choose from. Here are some of my current favorites. Shop the links to get ready for your next day of salt water and sun bathing.


P.S. We all have a right to love our bikini body – It’s not about a number on a scale or the size of your waist, it’s all about finding a swimsuit you feel confident in.

    I love this swimsuit!! I can never seem to rock a one piece. I’m pear shaped and for some reason it just makes me look boxy.
