It's Not You, It's My Muffin Top: My Break-Up With The Bikini

July 13, 2010 by Brittany Zwillich

After receiving this American Apparel Malibu bathing suit ($42) as a gift, I decided to try it, and cheat on my bikinis, even though I haven’t worn a one piece since middle school. The results were surprising and slimming: the high hip cut made my legs look longer and leaner, the scoop neck lifted my chest, and best of all – I could eat anything that morning, because my midsection was tucked safely inside. It’s safe to say I’m hooked.

So I encourage you, cheat on your bikini-at least once. You might find that your relationship with the one-piece could turn into a long-term affair. With the new colorful prints and sexy cutouts, the one-piece has been reborn. Here are a few to get you started:

Fun Prints: The eye-catching print will turn heads on this Tommy Bahama ‘Garden Trellis’ ($129) while the white band gives the impression of lifting your chest.

Ruched: The J. Crew Jaipur Paisely Ruched Swimsuit ($84) slims your waistline and hides your tummy with the ruching on both sides.

Solid Color: This retro-inspired BDG Cross Back Swimsuit ($49, down from $88) seems basic, but the criss-cross straps will narrow the broadest shoulders.

Plunging Neck: There is no way any bikini could be sexier than this fully-lined Carmen Marc Valvo ‘Metal Mesh’ Plunging Swimsuit ($167) with this ultra deep V-neck and gold belt buckle.
