If all the world wore a one-piece…

then I wouldn’t have to worry about getting bikini-ready for my upcoming Mexication. And I wouldn’t have to take an hour out of my evening to “squeeze those abs” in front of the TV. Life for us women would be a heckuva lot easier if one-piece bathing suits were the only bathing suit to buy. Am I right or am I right?

The hubs is quick to point out that I have mucho swimsuits to choose from for the Mexication. And that there’s absolutely no need for bathing suits of any kind — one-piece, two piece, speedo, whatever — to be on my mind. This is true. But I haven’t been able to escape it lately with all the swimwear that has been making its way into stores as of late. One-piece bathing suits, in particular, have especially been catching my eye.

I actually feel like one-piece bathing suits are becoming more stylish than your standard triangle bikini. One-pieces are unexpected. It feels like more of a risk to wear a one-piece with more coverage than a basic two-piece. And wearing one makes so much more sense if you’re going to an all-inclusive resort where 24-hour room service is at your beck and call and all-you-can-eat restaurants are the name of the game.

The downside is that these one-pieces seem to be more expensive. Really? Four more inches of material means upping the price by $50?! I guess that’s the price you pay for fashion. Although I still don’t know if I’m willing to pay 100 bones for one of these babies. I may just stick to my usual swimsuit buying routine — which involves me going to Target to pick up a few toiletries and I walk out with a bathing suit for under $25. (Those of you who heart Target understand that this is totally normal.) In the meantime, I’ll keep squeezing those abs, pulling in that powerhouse and pulsing for eight counts in front of the TV.

    I fully support the widespread wearing of one-piece swim suits. I’m really glad they’re in fashion, and that you, my fashion-forward friend, have confirmed this!
