Swimwear Designs for Modesty Warriors and Glamazons

There many reasons I am grateful that one-piece swimwear is making a comeback — the retro styling,  less tugging to keep everything in place,  reduced bikini line maintenance, and most of all, covering up regrettable lower back tattoo. The 2000s were a different time. I was still technically a TEENAGER, and that whole Y2K thing had me really stressed out.  Fine, let’s just chalk it up to youthful indiscretion and be grateful it wasn’t an unplanned pregnancy.

Until I can get my hands on some Turlington’s Lower Back Tattoo Remover, I will embrace this glamorous trend  in the spirit Betty Grable and Ester Williams.   With the following criteria in mind, I went online window shopping and found the suits you see here:

  1. It must come in size shrimpy
  2. Have a padded bust to enhance what I got (not much)
  3. Cover my shame
  4. Be something I would actually pull off
  5. Be age appropriate  I can say I was shopping in the junior’s department for my niece, right?
