Summer is almost here – Time to check out new Swimwear!

Summer is on its way and I’m making some space for a swimsuit or two! I haven’t got over my body hang-ups, so I’m still in the one piece frame of mind. While I’ve seen some fabulous monokinis, I’m considering (albeit warily) a few two pieces and of course, a budget stays on my mind.

So, with a goal to stay sexy despite being self-conscious, I’ve found some sweet stuff. So here’s a peek at some of my fave one pieces so far, all under $100! Enjoy 🙂

Summer is just around the corner and I’m excited for one (or two) new pieces to wear to the beach this year 🙂

Recently, I came across this super chic piece from Ryan Chan’s Goddess Reign collection and I absolutely love it.
Here’s a swimsuit I’d snag!

It’s Getting Hot Out Here – Time To Cop Some Beachwear!

Despite the fact that it has been raining every day, the last few weeks have been terribly hot. Of course, this blistering heat  is an indicator that summer’s around the corner and swimsuit shopping is in order!

If you’ve been following my blog you know I am ‘back conscious’ and only do one pieces. Well, I’m pleased to announce that I debuted my DKNY ruched one piece swimsuit and it was a hit! Not only did I feel lithe and sexy (despite being ‘covered up’), but I also got compliments 😉

So in welcoming the summer, I’ve decided to share some of the swimsuits I posted originally as well as some new ones I found!

Sexy One-Piece Swimwear – Is It Out There?

My dear friend is coming to Jamaica and with much talk and growing excitement about visiting the beach in Negril, soaking up some sun and possibly snorkelling, I figured the time had come for me to get some swimwear.

So I set out in search of a fabulously sexy one-piece – and with the options in today’s marketplace you’re thinking the same thing I was – “This shouldn’t be too hard.” Except I was looking for something that covers my back as much as possible.

Well, it’s like… I kinda have a progressive & irreversible ‘skin condition’ which makes me way less than confident about showing skin ‘in back’ – so I decided to vigilantly go on the prowl and find exactly what I wanted!

I was on the net all gung-ho trying to find something (why I didn’t go ‘store shopping’ is a different post for a different time), ’til I saw the frickin prices and was like ‘whoooooaa.’  The first thing I realized is that the more skin you show is the less you pay! I was like “daaamn, yea you had to use more material to create this, but… daaamn.”

Let me tell you how I saw some show-stopping, breath-taking bathing suits. I would picture myself in these gorgeous garbs; running along the beach, ‘hair blowing in the wind’, guys raising themselves and their jaws off the sand as they asked, “Who’s that girl?”… RECORD SCRATCH, then I’d see the prices and my breath would stop (instant headache) and the beach scene I was about to star would end abruptly. Too many times it happened 😥 That shit breaks a girl’s heart!

I also realized that there are barely any sexy swimsuits that provide back coverage! When I would run into one, it was always sold the f@(! out 😡

My goal was to find something sexy under US$100, but I was having no luck and just when I was about to throw in the towel – voila – I found something!
