Summer is officially upon us, and this year I am so obsessed with one piece swimsuits. In the past, if you were a woman in your 20’s and 30’s you had to be wearing a two piece to be considered trendy. I personally am what I’ll call “top heavy” and pretty modest, so one pieces just make me feel more confident and secure and now they’re back and on the rise! What I absolutely love about them is how good they look on EVERYONE!
The problem with swimsuits is they can be rough on the wallet. I’ve recently done some research as to why swimsuits are SO expensive (I mean you’re covering my t***s and a** so why are you charging me an arm and a leg?) and came to some interesting conclusions:
- Swimsuits are more expensive because of the kind of material they’re made from (i.e. spandex and lycra). They cost more and have to withstand more (heat, salt water, chlorine, etc) than your average clothing
- They have to be cut to fit many different body types. Sure, regular clothing needs to be cut that way as well but you’re working with a lot less fabric here
- They’re not sold year round. Because they’re a seasonal item, when they are sold they’re in higher demand and designers must be sure to be economical for a product that won’t be on shelves long
With all that being said, you will definitely get what you pay for, but I’ve rounded up some of my favorite one pieces that won’t break the bank, should last you for a while, and are absolutely adorable.
