A Return To Modesty (And The One-Piece) Has Bikinis On The Endangered Species List

May 15, 2008 by Bryn

At last, the day has come when shopping for swimwear doesn't mean browsing through endless racks of barely-there bikinis and miniscule pieces of fabric held together by dental floss. According to today's New York Times, women are saying goodbye to glitzy, flashy, teeny bathing suits and embracing more demure one-pieces, boy shorts, and flattering halter tops. Hallelujah!

Not that I have anything against the bikini, but for once, I'd like the suit to fit my body as is, and not feel I have to fit in those extra crunches right before my weekend getaway. Below are three suits that will keep you covered but don't sacrifice on style.

This contrast suit by Marysia Reeves ($152) is sophisticated enough to wear season after season. Throw on a chic sarong and some metallic sandals, and you can head straight to evening cocktails by the beach.

For a true retro feel, opt for this Diane von Furstenberg design ($200). Diane knows what it takes to make a woman feel fabulous in anything she wears.

If you really want to up the ante, throw on this fiery red Lisa Curran halter one-piece ($160). All eyes will be on you and your killer suit.
