Sexy One Piece Bathing Suits

. . .but I haven’t found one that is flattering on me …though I haven’t tried in ages. But usually they are too short and ride up in the crotch then simultaneously flatten my chest. Neither of which are appealing. I think they look best on women with large chests and small waists because those both seem to be where the eye is drawn. Also, I don’t actually want too much coverage on the butt because like a bikini, the more fabric that covers the butt, the bigger it looks {and by bigger I mean wider}. I like a big butt but not in width 🙂

In my quest to find a one piece that works for my body type I’ve also noticed that a few companies are now making them in a “long torso” variety and that will hopefully solve my riding up/flatting & pulling issue. I never really considered myself long-torso’d but I can’t seem to put on a bathing suit or leotard that doesn’t feel like it’s about to cut me in half!

There are a TON of super cute one-piece bathing suits but the suits shown below I think fit the bill as far as my needs are concerned: long enough, boobacious {doesn’t flatten or pull down the chest}, no squeezing {extra skin out the sides}, great ass! …with links below.

As much as I like many of these prints {the top four are my favorite} I’ll probably just go with black …I love black bathing suits. Though prints are great at disguising imperfections 😉
