Bathing Beauty: One Piece Swimwear

Nashville's summer heat and humidity is wasting no time settling in which is leaving me with beach on the brain. It's so hot I feel the need to be in a pool at all times. I'm also prepping for two beach trips later this year, so I've been searching for a few new swimsuits. But swimsuit shopping is a daunting task. I don't know anyone who enjoys doing it. The reality is we're much too hard on ourselves. We look way better in that bathing suit than we think we do. So let's stop worrying about it and just have fun.

One pieces are still having a moment. Cut outs, sheer panels and decorative back details make these suits a far cry from those basic swim team one pieces we wore as kids. Today's one pieces are cooler and sexier. They also make a great basic layering piece. Pair them with wide leg pants, embellished sandals and a tied chambray shirt and you're ready for brunch before the pool.

Here are a few of my favorite one pieces. Hover over the items and click the "+" to shop.
