The One-Piece VS The Two-Piece: The Battle of the Sexiest

While bikinis have always been a popular beach choice for everyone from celebrities to your average neighbor down the street, the one-piece has taken over, my friends, and it may be here to stay. Now that the summer is about to begin, it's time to do that dreaded thing we struggle with every year: shop for a bathing suit.

When it comes to shopping, finding something that suits your body type is everything. Whether we like it or not, our bodies dictate much of what we wear, even more so than our tastes. Bathing suit shopping is no different. When fantasizing about our next purchase, Pinterest may inspire, but body shape makes the final decision.

In today's day and age, when one-piece bathing suits are no longer associated with matronly figures, we can finally feel sexy without exposing our midriff. Though a cutout may not permit the best tanning experience, society has turned over a new leaf, one that recognizes the dangers of tanning and the value of protecting our skin. While bandeaus may still be popular, they are no longer necessary and with the wide variety of choice that exists, bikinis and one-piece bathing suits can now go head-to-head in the battle of the sexiest.

The bikini remains sexy in a conventional way. It shows off the midriff and accentuates your curves. However, the one piece leaves more to the imagination, especially when cutouts are involved. Moreover, even when it comes to bikinis, the waistline is getting higher and reverting to a more retro look. Can it be that imagination is being favored to exposing our skin? Is it time to reconsider our natural inclination towards the two-piece? 

Ponder it,
