JCrew Regal Paisley BikiniFolks, it’s time for me to state the obvious: it’s summer. And for fashion people, that means magazines are getting thinner, store shelves are getting barer, and there won’t be much to sustain us until approximately August (or September, if you’re counting in magazine months). Pre-Fall stuff is trickling in from a few brands, but overall, there’s not a lot to talk about in the handbag world that most of you guys haven’t already seen. I was talking (read: whining) about this to a guy friend earlier today, and his response was, “Well, bathing suits are summery. Why don’t you just write about those?”

My initial reaction was “Psssh, those aren’t handbags,” but then I figured, why not? He might be on to something. So I spent a little bit of time looking around the Internet today for my favorite bathing suit, and I decided that I loved the J.Crew Regal Paisley Bikini. The bold, retro pattern will cover any wear-and-tear that occurs from lazing around the pool or ocean and the slightly more substantial top will give the necessary lift and added security to a girl with a larger-than-average chest. So what bathing suit have you been wearing this summer, or do you still have your eye on several? Buy through J.Crew for $90.

    I bought a Mathew Williamson for H&M with it’s matching pareo. I can’t remember what that small sheet like thing is called in English. This suit is modeled by Daria and is very psychedelic. The quality is really great and I paid 15euros for each piece.

  • I saw some good suits from Victoria’s Secret that did not look like the bottom would push into my skin too bad. I don’t want a suit too tight on the bottom that creates a muffin top!

    I bought a Carmen Marc Valvo one piece from Victoria’s Secret online. It’s backordered unitl late June but i’m willing to wait until then. I’m excited about it because it looks very retro and flattering with the ruching. I usually don’t do one pieces but since I had a baby 3 months ago I think I would be more comfortable in a one piece.

  • JCB – I almost bought that same suit last night!!! It’s exactly what I want, I adore the retro look, but I didn’t check out since it was backordered and I hate waiting. I hope you love it!
