the PERFECT bathing suit!

Attention ladies! 
(or gents or anyone who is in need of a slimming one piece)

By some random miracle, I stumbled upon and am now the owner of the world's most flattering one piece. I honestly just picked it up without trying it on at Target and drug it to the beach, tags attached, a few weeks ago. Low and behold, as I wrestled it onto my lumps and bumps, it transformed into the most flattering bathing suit of all time.

And we all know I don't make claims like that lightly. 

The boning in the suit is strong enough (so, industrial strength) that I actually do not need the included halter strap to keep it from buckling under the weight of my DD ladies, the backside is appropriately covered to contain my cheeks and the rouching over my tummy is slimming and forgiving. The "flounce" is laser cut and makes the suit look a little more pricey than it really is. 

During wear, I did not need to keep adjusting the top (which is news worthy in of itself) and I would have added the halter strap if we were playing in the ocean or I was at the pool with the baby. I did adjust the bottom a bit here and there but that's because I was blessed with a throwback Khloe K. backside. I'm rocking a size Large in the suit.

Bottom line:

You need this suit.
(it comes in plus size, too!) 

And no, I will not be modeling it for you. 
A girl can only scrape up so much self esteem before 10am.

As an aside, Target is kinda killing it in the Black One Piece department so I'm linking a few of my faves below - if you have a fave, please report back in the comments so others can snag it!

  1. Too funny...I love it! I want to find a high cut one piece for this summer! -xo Wendie

  2. That's probably the cutest one piece I've ever seen... I would love a one piece. I haven't rocked anything but bikinis in years but that whole just-had-a-baby business is not looking so hot right now. My biggest qualm of moving to Hawaii is definitely it being swimsuit season FOREVER.

  3. Believe it or not, Jcrew has some really awesome one pieces too. I am going to look there once it gets a little closer to summer. I'm just not at the ready to look for bathing suits stage yet (although I know that's what time it really is)

  4. Thanks for sharing! I'm in serious need of a swimsuit for this season and I don't think I can bring myself to wear a bikini just yet.

  5. Super cute! I am in the market for a bikini alternative, for when I'm in the need of something easy and modest. I normally buy cup-size bikini tops due to my "ladies" (DDD), and wear a size 10 on average. Any words of advice for the sizing of this suit? I will need to buy it online. Thanks!

    1. So sorry! I should have said what size I'm wearing! I'm in a large and I wear a 30/10-12/L in pants and a Large in most tops thanks to my DD chest :-)

    2. Thanks, Stephanie! Just checked back here and saw this as I'm planning to order soon. Do you think there is a little extra room in the top for someone with a slightly larger chest? I think large is probably the best size for me overall, but I'm worried that my ladies will be bursting at the seams if its already a tight fit for DD. Thanks for the sizing expertise :)

  6. i love the detail on the top of that suit! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  7. I just got two swimsuits from target and was shocked at how much I love them!

  8. Goodness I need this. My husband is less than thrilled about me transitioning to the one piece because we have no babes yet so can I please HURRY UP and get pregnant so I have an excuse to cover my belly? But forreal!

    1. I think a one piece can be crazy sexy! And is your tummy bruised?? There's your excuse to make the move! ;-)

  9. Target is killing the swimsuit game right now!

  10. Perfect timing! I was just thinking I should get a new suit for my post c-section mom bod! Thanks!

  11. Bless you for posting this! I have been on the hunt.

  12. I love this suit! So, so cute, especially with the bright yellow outfit details!

    xo, Anna Elizabeth

  13. Oh! I've been looking for a cute one piece! I love the ruffle part!
    Have a lovely day,

    Kathryn, The Sugared Lemon

  14. I need this for my beach trip! So sassy!
