Hey babes xx, White Girl Jamie here coming in live from the VIP. It's almost time to get back to school and for me, that means pool party/darty szn. If you're like me, you wouldn't be caught dead in a bikini at a frat party. A great alternative is a super cute one piece paired with denim shorts. I've handpicked my favorites for you guys to shop before your next poolside appearance.
Their return to our fav store's racks is seriously a God's send. For real though, just two summers ago I walked into my favorite swimsuit boutique looking for a good one piece and they had none. Total Mean Girls "You could try Sears" moment. Now that they're back in style, I want to share with you why I've been choosing one pieces over my reliable but admittedly basic black bikini this season.
You can seriously look way hotter in your one piece than your bikini and that doesn't mean you don't have a kick ass bod, ladies - all of our bods are different. I'm just here to help and share with you some wisdom because I've tried these affordable, hot AF swimmies and they just are way more flattering on me than that expensive, trendy cut-out bikini that everyone is rocking (thanks to Facetune) on IG. Shopping for swimmies is so much easier when you don't have to convince yourself that the bottoms look okay when you want to buy the suit in a set. I don't know if this is my personal bad luck, but when I find a top that works for me, the bottoms almost never do.
Buying a one piece doesn't mean you're uncomfortable with your body, rather, it means you're confident enough to be unique and stray from the crowd. You'll be serving looks and not because people are noticing how your bathing suit looks on you, because of how good you look in it. Risquè bikinis are not our thing this summer (Risquè doesn't sound totally similar to risky for no reason.)
Do yourself a favor, ladies. If you're scared of wearing a one piece because you think guys prefer bikinis, then just wait til Chad or Brad see you and notice that they've never seen that on their feed. The One Piece is Chic AF and I took the liberty to attach some of my favorite, most affordable pieces below... Thank me later, babes.
