One Piece Domination

Resort 2016 has me in One Piece paradise, floating on cloud nine with a multitude of choices.

What’s not to love about a One Piece, with so many sexy, sophistocated, boho, retro and sporty styles. Leaving more to the imagination than their bikini counterpart, having us breathing easier around our midsections and relaxing our posture. I’m ecstatic that the One Piece has made a come back, with this season looking to outdo all previous offerings.
One Piece swimwear gives you a form of comfort without sacrificing style. It’s a combination of comfort luxe sportswear and the look of haute couture. Compared to the bikini, this season the One Piece is the chicer of the two. Don’t get me wrong, I stand by my beloved bikinis, but there’s room for both. Take a look at MARA HOFFMAN’S new line of One Pieces and I’m sure you’ll agree. Continue Reading

Brazilian, Cheeky, Itsy and Teeny all names used for the cut in between the Californian and Tanga Styles.
This being my favorite cut as for so many of you out there, and I see we are not alone. With  the trend growing, so many established brands are expanding, or, should I say saving on fabric and  becoming less reserved creating their own Brazilian lines. With new Swimwear brands making the Brazilian their standard cut, Dare I say its not seen as risqué as it was with smaller Tanga cuts moving in taking that spot.
Why is this cut so popular? In my opinion the obvious one being less tan lines, youthful, freespirted and a flattering cut for our peach shape behinds. Let me elaborate, with as many shaped peaches, there are as many brands with their take on the Brazilian bikini bottom, and I know them all! Continue Reading

Tori Praver Swimwear

After mentioning this brand the last few blog posts I thought they deserved a post of their own!

I’ve been buying Tori’s swimwear for a couple of years now but this year I ‘ve bought 5 bikinis and a one piece swimsuit, and am still left wanting more!

With the year not over, Resort 2016 is slowly popping up for pre-order and I am both excited and scared, as it looks like my tally of Tori Praver will be going up!!!
Tori’s swimwear makes you feel like a mix between a pin up girl and boho chic goddess, and Isn’t that how we all want to feel ?. Tori Praver-Fuller’s swimwear reflects who she is, effortlessly beautiful, understated yet with just enough detail to get attention.
No over embellishing, just fabulous fits, a variety of cuts and techniques with the fabrics like braiding and signature smocking. Smocking modernly does what ruching used to do: hide flaws with an added bonus of lift and support without the bulk. Continue Reading
