The Bikini

It's common knowledge that there are many bikini types, the brazilian, the american, the string and blabla.
 I love these retro styles, and especially the one pieces. So elegant. But I'm against one pieces in general, they kind of ruin your tan, I know shallow but truth. And the brazilian, eeeh what? well yes not THE brazilian, the tiny winy but the low cut let's say, even Victoria Secret has some ;) 
What do you wear?

yeah, I don't look like Gisele by any chance but... oh well!

  13. These swimsuits are fantastic! I would wear all of them... I truly despise swimsuit shopping, because I am very petite, and find sets to be challenging. I will most definitely try these on, though, as they look perfect :)

    Wishing you the most lovely weekend...thanks so much for all of your comments. You always have the nicest things to say...

    xoxo,

  23. I love them all except string bikinis and too-shiny metallic ones. One piece, bikinis, tankinis, monokinis even.... though f course I cannot really pull the latter off, as a plus-size gal. I don't expose my tummy so it doesn't bother me that I don't get tanned there when I wear my fab vintage-looking halter one-piece! I loooove it!

  24. I really love bandeu tops - but those one pieces are so pretty too!

  25. Bikinis just may be an option again looking at those high waisted retro suits. I am thinking they just may be enough to coverthe aftermath of my triplet belly:-)

    Great roundup.

  26. I so agree with you about tanning issues with one pieces. I'm all about the string bikini. I've got curves so I need that wiggle room :)

    Great post honey!
