OB reader Alanna H. sent us an email begging for "...(M)ore one-piece sexy swimsuits. I really liked the black with white trim from Vix but that is sold out and I'm having trouble finding other cute one-pieces for young (not moms) people. Thanks!" Well, Alanna, your wish is our command - we get sick of skimpy bikinis, too!
Add some couture flair to your poolside lounging with this J. Crew Jersey Lomellina Ruffled Tank ($175). The sash tie makes waists look itsy bitsy, and the tiered ruffles do double duty, both making smaller chests look bigger and draping themselves flatteringly over tummies that have seen a few too many brownies.
An OYE Trinity Maillot ($300) will make you look like you just came from the French Riviera: sleek and sophisticated. We love the gold-tone chain accents linking the coyly placed cutouts.
Want to look Sexy-with-a-capital-"S"? Slap on some SPF 50, pick out a big umbrella or sun hat, and don a Zimmerman Papillon Cutout One Piece Tank ($230). Why the umbrella/SPF recommendation? If you're not careful, you could end up with some rather odd tan lines, thanks to the lattice cutout across the chest & collarbone.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Kenneth Cole, for your bougainvillea-hued Smocked Plunge One-Piece ($98). Removable pads + ruching across the bust help accent the bust while gently pulling the stomach in. We can't guarantee you'll look like the Victoria's Secret model shown here (please, don't catch her case of 24/7 SexyFaceitis), but you will look awesome.
