I have been on a hunt for the perfect one piece for our upcoming trip to Hawaii. It took a bit for me to get this far - I've always been a bikini girl and it's taken a bit of mental work to realize that no matter how in shape I get, after being pregnant with and breastfeeding two children I am probably going to be a one piece gal from now on. *sigh* Now that I've done a bit of research, however, I've realized that there are a lot of really cute one piece options out there. I'm a huge fan of rucheing - it adds a little bit of (ahem) bulk to areas that need it and distracts from other areas I wish had less bulk.
The other day two possible swimsuits arrived in the mail and I locked myself in the room to try them on, telling my husband that I would be a LONG time and that if I came out crying he was to just leave me alone and not ask any questions. However, I was pleasantly surprised by both - NOT ugly, NOT frumpy, actually quite flattering and cute. I am no longer dreading my vacation! How about you - are you a one piecer or a bikini gal? Any good one piece suggestions for me?
