I am known to exaggerate a tad for the benefit of a good story, but I promise you the title of this post is no exaggeration. I also must be up front and let you know that I did not discover this flattering bathing suit on my own, it was my friend Amelia who let me know. In fact, a couple weeks ago we were meeting for dinner and waiting at the bar for our third friend to arrive. We were lamenting that we are of a certain age and how I’ve had 2 children and finding a flattering bathing suit is just impossible these days when Amelia alerted me that the most flattering bathing suit ever is the mesh inset microgoddess bandeau one-piece from….TARGET, no less.
I went online on my phone and bought the suit right then and there without even trying it on and let me tell you…this weekend I wore the suit to the beach for the first time and I felt like a million bucks. In fact, I was hit on (as witnessed by my mother) while at the beach with my 2 children, cute husband, and parents – that’s not a usual scenario for being hit on, am I right? It was the suit! You must order one immediately, it will change your summer.
You can wear the suit strapless or with a thing around the neck and I went with the latter based on the fact that I’d be swimming with and chasing after my 2 small children. There’s something about the mesh part (the shape and the material) that is so flattering and a little sexy – which I don’t usually go for with bathing suits these days (aforementioned 2 small children) but hey, why not? Anyway, just thought I’d give you the heads up – think of this as a general PSA on flatting bathing suits – YOU’RE WELCOME!
