The New Swim Suit

Swimsuit anxiety:
(def.) n.- The familiar general discomfort felt this time of year, every year, at the sight- let alone the donning- of bikinis and one-piece bathing suits. Statistics show that 99% of women suffer from it. The 1% that don't are Victoria's Secret models and women under the age of 16...aka betches.

So maybe strutting your stuff in a string bikini is more of a distant memory (if you're lucky!) than a reality. That's okay! My new favorite swimwear look is super practical, comfortable and fabulous...and YOU will look amazing in it!

Look Two: Halter Top + Surf Shorts
Look Three: Bandeau Top + Board Shorts

Board shorts are an over-30 gal's best friend. They say, "I'm so cool and confident that I don't have to show you my buns. Just know they are there and they are perky," even if they're not exactly. Regardless, they allow you to bend over without wedgie-worry, tuck in your pooch (wait, what pooch?! ;)), and walk over the dunes without worrying how much cellulite is showing. YES! Above, I've paired them with bikini tops but you can ABSOLUTELY wear these with a fab one piece. In fact, that's an even chicer look for the boardwalk in my opinion.

So will you wear a swimsuit in this ilk this year? You'll find me strolling next to the Atlantic as much as possible this summer...in chic shorts, of course.
