One Piece Swimsuit

Sleek One Piece Swimsuit JCrew  |  Old Navy

I know. Swim suit shopping. It’s. The. Worst. But I actually think wearing a swimsuit in public is much worse. I’ve grown up as a fairly modest gal and it took a while for me to get used to bikinis. And while I do wear them now, there are several occasions when I wish I had a cute one piece to make me feel a little more relaxed being half naked in front of kids I’m babysitting or my dad. Know what I mean?

Well, a couple of weeks ago, I found this adorable suit on the JCrew website and fell in love with it. But at $118, I just couldn’t pull the trigger. Then, yesterday, while I was searching for the perfect pair of white jeans (a follow up to this post will come next week) I happened upon this suit. And it was only $10 (in store). I tried it on and settled on one size larger than normal and it’s perfect. I even tried it on for my man, who can be a bit picky about these things, and he thought it was cute too! Success.

Just thought I’d let you know. In case you’re in need. Or just want. ;)

PS: Also found this look alike from this JCrew Suit. I tried it on in two sizes, and may have gone two sizes up from normal. It’s a little tight getting it over my bodacious curves. Ha!

    I have a VERY similar suit to the one you got – it’s pink and from Target (two years ago). I just wish I had gotten a size bigger, so I think I’m going to get another one this year in black. Here is the link:

    I a Old Navy once piece halter top from last season and love it! I’m modest myself and just feel a lot more comfortable in either a tankini or a one piece.

    I have that from Target too, in black! And I love it. I do find going up a size or two in one pieces is necessary. Not sure why (and it kind of makes you feel bad about youself IMO).

    I’m always on the hunt for cute one pieces, but they are usually SO expensive and/or still cut to fit and flatter skinnier girls. LAME. This site looks like it has some good ones – – but still, some for $100?!

    oh yeah! that’s really cute. thank God they’re making good looking one pieces again!

  • heidi ggggggggg!

    I have that old navy swimming suit and it’s so flattering…especially after baby. I could wear a bikini, but stretch marks aren’t hot. I’m so glad the 1 piece is coming back in.

  • Paula

    so glad one-pieces are back in style again and easier to find!

  • Linda Rose

    you and me both paula!

  • Shelley McCann

    Was it the Old Navy one that you found in-store for only $10? My local ON store isn’t even carrying swimsuits yet???

  • Linda Rose

    yes, it was. i am in florida right now, so that could have been it. but even at 40 bucks, it’s a great deal. especially if you wait for a coupon (which you can get through email).
