Swimsuits are back! They were off the radar for quite a while, caused by the popularity of the bikini. Such a pity, because swimsuits are really amazing. Apart from the fact that they’re not great for tanning, the swimsuit has many benefits. It's flattering, comfortable (no more fumbling with sagging bikini tops and bottoms after a jump in the water) and you can just throw a pair of Levi’s shorts on top of it and you’re good to go.
There are now
all kinds of different swimsuits. Personally, I’m a big fan of the simple ones,
with a scoop back, round neck and not too much going on. A black colored
one was on my shopping list for this summer. Eventually I succeeded at J.Crew
(a.k.a. provider of the best basic swimwear), however, not with the black one
like I’d planned, but with a red one.
I don’t really
know why – I normally never wear the color red – but I had to have it. However,
I have to admit that I had my doubts at first. Wasn’t it a bit too sexy (à la
Baywatch – the hit TV show back in the 90s), too showy? Too dramatic? It’s an
eye catcher for sure. But I decided to just go for it, to step out my comfort
zone. And I have absolutely no regrets.
So, I’m curious
to know what you guys think of a red Baywatch-inspired swimsuit. Yay or nay? Leave
