Not a fan. I've already seen similar ones at our pool, on women in their late teens and early 20s. They look about as attractive as bandages.

I wonder that also. These suits are not for real. What we need is a suit that you can put on easily, take off easily, and actually move around and swim!

Especially knowing that at some point you are going to need to go to the bathroom! It should be easy to take off. When wet!

I never understood the cut out bathing suit trend. You already get bad tan lines with other suits or separates and the cut out style, makes it even worse.

I remember when the monokini started out. I thought it would be flattering on wider shapes like mine and it look worse than a tiny bikini lol.

Bandeau style tops aren't flattering either on most women.

I've seen those fringe style tops which I think is super tacky. It's like what a cowgirl would wear at the beach.

The thong or Brazilian style cut... Okay I have sort of observed something weird about this. It looks great on thin girls with no behind. It's like it almost gives them a butt lift. On girls who already have a big butt, it looks huge (maybe that's what they want though).

I was going to say the same thing. I swim every day from late May to September. I need a new suit every year because the old one ends up big, saggy, with little support in the bra area.

That said, as a lap swimmer and scuba diver, I go for a practical cut suit with good straps that won't fall off while swimming. Some divers like bikinis because they are easier to go to the bathroom on the boat. I don't like the feel of the neoprene against my skin as it is. So it's a trade off. Plus, I use the suit for lap swimming.

I have a sharkskin for snorkeling. There is no rubber in it, so it's a bit cooler than say a 3 mil wetsuit. I've had it for years though. Not sure if they still make them. Depending on the water temperature, it's worth looking in to.

I think it's rather cute.


Ladies, the secret to going to the bathroom in a one piece is this: just pull the crotch area off to the side. Make sure you have toilet paper in hand before doing this if you're not super coordinated. WARNING: this will only work if you just have to pee.
