After a winter of indulging in carbs and chocolate, there’s nothing quite as traumatic as trying on a bathing suit for the first time in months. Such was my experience a few days ago when I slipped into a bikini I remember fitting so much better last summer. Needless to say, I won’t be wearing it again this year, so instead I’ve set my sights on this amazing one-piece by Marysia. Thanks to the strategically placed cutout, it’s just as sexy as a bikini, except that I can also hide the fact that I haven’t hit up the gym at all this year. Plus, it’s bound to stand out in a sea of bikinis at the beach and the tan lines will be perfect for when I rock a crop top. Win-win, if you ask me.
