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