I Found the Best Source for Cheap and Sexy Bathing Suits

Some clothing is so wrong that it has to be right. In Why Do I Like This? we work through all the feelings that come with finding love in the least likely of places.

I?€?ve been avoiding one-piece swimsuits for the past decade, ever since the summer I was a camp counselor and had to wear one during swim lessons. It?€?s not that I dislike the aesthetic, but in a fit of rebellion against the mandatory uniform, I chose an unlined, unpadded, not-very-functional suit from American Apparel. It looked retro, but was no help when I was getting punched in the chest by 4-year-olds in floaties. For the next ten years, I favored more conservative bikinis.

This summer, though, my swimwear priorities changed. I wanted to surf, which meant I needed something that could keep my bust in place while being knocked around by waves. I also wanted the most butt stretch-mark coverage coupled with the least boob sag. Inevitably, that led me to the one-piece market.

The problem is the bulk of popular one-pieces right now don?€?t take tan lines into account. (Belly cutouts seem especially popular.) If they didn?€?t reveal my waist in the least practical way, they required that I pay more attention to my bikini line than there?€?s time for. I wanted a stylish, playful swimsuit that didn?€?t seem too thirsty. Lucky for me, the swimwear gods didn?€?t care what I wanted. I accidentally got a thirsty suit in the mail, and I?€?m so glad I did.

What I wanted was a timeless, ruffled, off-the-shoulder one-piece in black. Maybe it?€?d make Rockaway feel like Saint-Tropez? Except that?€?s not what came ?€‘± I received the brand?€?sBlack Cruise Control suit instead. The style felt trendy, with a high-cut bottom, open back, and a lace-up front that from the right angle showed everything between my navel and bra line. ?€?Oh, it is sexy,?€? my colleague said on Slack when I showed her what arrived. (Oddly enough, my boyfriend didn?€?t think there was anything overly revealing about it at all.)

If there?€?s one beach for test-driving a more revealing swimsuit than you?€?re used to, it?€?s Brighton in Brooklyn. It?€?s full of of women (and men) of all ages and body types making the case for thong bottoms ?€‘± there?€?s no room for shame. What better place to take a bag of cherries and my semi-exposed butt?

Getting ready for the beach, I realized under cutoffs, the suit could pass as the kind of lace-up going-out top everyone wore last year. I took the padding out, though I can see how it might come in handy on a chillier day, or for the extra support.??My rack did stay in place ?€‘± though, full disclosure, there were hardly any waves. Another perk: You can be as modest about your cleavage you want, thanks to the option to tighten or loosen the front.

The silhouette?€?s open back managed to make me feel pretty sexy even??after a meal of Nathan?€?s cheese fries and funnel cake. I did have to walk around with my hands down my shorts to keep the high cut from riding up, but that was a small price to pay (in addition to $109) for the suit?€?s food-baby coverage, made possible by its adjustable string.

Most importantly, the suit seems durable, so if I?€?m lucky it?€?ll be a very long time before I shop for one again. Bless shipping errors, for making me realize a starter thirsty suit was exactly what I needed.
