One Pieces are Better than Two
Marilyn wore one. Carol Lombard did, and so did Jean Harlow. Grace Kelly hid her's under her coat. The most elegant ladies of this century can't be wrong.
They are not just for your mother anymore. And they don't necessarily mean you have something to hide. They come in so many patterns and colors and with vintage shapes, they are more stylish than a simple triangle bikini. It's like dressing up at the beach.
There is something so sophisticated about wearing a one piece. Because it is less revealing, the extra fabric makes more of a fashion statement. I already have mine for this summer, a black halter with boy shorts and ruffles on the butt and bust. It can easily be accessorized as well as translate into outfits after the beach. Bare stomachs and belly rings are bound to become a thing of the past!

Moved to Boston for the classic college experience. Spray painted graffiti in the Paris Metro during six month stay in the Marais.
