10 Simple Reasons To Buy A Cute One-Piece Bathing Suit Instead Of Longing For A 'Beach Body' In A Bikini

Don't beat yourself up because you are beautiful anyway!


It is the month of March *ALREADY*. I can't believe my eyes when I look at the calendar and I see that summer is three months away! Exciting, but the time is flying in 2019!

Women run into this problem every year. It is around the time when we start to work on our summer bodies. That's cool and all; if you want to do that, amazing. But you really don't need to if you don't want to.

Here are 10 fabulous reasons to buy a cute AF one-piece bathing suit instead of searching for that bikini. Don't long for the beach body because you already have one!

1. They are super comfortable.

One-pieces are extremely comfy. They are flexible. Some of the ones I have are so comfortable that I could sleep in them. Bikinis are hard to sleep in, whether you are on the beach or at the pool.

2. They come in many different styles.

Bikinis have limited access to style. What matters there is color or pattern. One-pieces have color and pattern PLUS more. You can wear a one-piece strapless, high-necked, laced, what have you. My favorite is open-back.

3. They are simple.

Never complex. Personally, I always thought that bikinis were just too much, but for some reason, I always wore them. The strings would get messed up in the washer and dryer. A one-piece? You can slip one on easy-peasey-lemon-squeezey.

4. One-piece prices are so much better.

You have to pay for the top half and the bottom half of a bikini separately, which is bull. One-piece bathing suits would satisfy your bank account and your happiness. It is one easy price for all of it.

5. They make you feel better in your own skin.

Not that I'm trying to tell you what to wear. If you feel comfortable wearing a bikini, go for it. I personally think that one-pieces make me feel better in my own body, so you should feel that way, too.

6. They will change your mind.

From the time I was little until I was about 20 years old, I had always worn a bikini. I always felt comfortable in one. I thought I needed that to feel good. I refused to try on one-pieces because I actually thought they made me look bad. The day I tried one on was the day that I never went back to wearing a bikini. Believe me, one-pieces will change your mind.

7. They are very cute.

One-pieces make you look super cute when bikinis sometimes fail to do that.

8. They make you love yourself.

I guess this could be the same thing as the fifth reason, but all in all, it is a great piece of swimwear! It is a priority to love yourself first before anything else. You should not have to worry about what something looks like on you, but one-pieces contribute to love.

9. They are super fitting.

No matter what size you are, a one-piece will fit. When bikinis fail, one-pieces save and win.

10. They make you look better, TBH.

When you look in that mirror while wearing a one-piece, you should feel absolutely gorgeous. One-pieces make you look better, honestly. There are so many amazing features about them that show off in you.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it).

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
