One Piece Or Two?

This is my new bathing suit.
I got a one piece this year because I do water aerobics once a week, and it's hard to do with your tankini bathing suit top floating around your neck. Ok, that's an exaggeration. Floating around your ribs is more the truth. But either way, it bugs. But my other suits are all two pieces. Long tankinis, I guess you'd call them. So I wondered what everyone else favors.


The once piece?

The cutaway one piece (which is big this year, I've noticed. I've also noticed that it disappears at the fattest part of my body. NOT wearing that one this year.)



The tankini?



The long tankini?


The ice skating bathing suit?



A boyshort bikini?


Do you dare the full-on bikini?

Or maybe this year you are thinking of going for the Stretch Thong, a.k.a the Super Hammock.


Do tell. Enquiring minds want to know.

I am all about the burka.

But I like John Mayer in the Borat.

I have two, last year I got the long tankini from Modbe and I love it, I can and did wear it though my pregnancy, and now will wear it after. the other one is a one peace but its kinda low cut in the front, and some people look down on that, but either way its super cute!!!

I now must use bleach to clear that last image from my brain....ACK!!

I really like that long tankini. I think I may need to look into that.

Oh, John Mayer. Why must you be such a douchey boyfriend? You are hilarious!

Sara said...

none of the above, do they make full body suits?

Melissa said...

I was so excited to comment until I saw John Mayer. Now, I'm so sick to my stomach.....

I love that long tankini---but I would pair it with boy shorts, so I would get as much coverage as possible.

On second thought---a pair of swimming capris might work.

Then I would feel comfortable.

That guy in the green thong is the most hideous thing I have ever seen! Yes, brain bleach! Hypnotic erasure! Pre-frontal lobotomy! ANYTHING BUT THAT HORRID VISION! (thanks for ruining my day! And after I baby-sat for you, too!)

I have both the long tankini and one piecers. The tankini is usually for daytime swimming, while the one-piece is usually for exercise swimming. I have the cutest 2-piece with boy shorts that I doubt I'll ever wear again. Maybe I should give it to someone who will (like you?)

i'm pretty sure this post is just an excuse to post that hideous mayer pic. =/

Thanks, Christie, but boyshorts look attrocious on me. I'm too hippy for them. The last time I wore one was when I was 20 lbs lighter. No, you'll have to pack that one away, I guess.

Ummm- how about a long sleeve shirt and long pants.. Oh I need a tan!!!

and a butt lift, a boob lift, and a muffin cut!!

I wear one-piece (just the bottom, but not the kind that goes over my shoulders).

I'm avoiding all scenarios this summer that involve water.

I definitely have to have a skirt. Too much cellulite down there.
