What guys really think

ONE-PIECE BATHING SUITS

Lisa: LOVE! Especially because my belly is not firm enough yet to wear a bikini. It's flat again, but not firm. And who wants to see my rolls as I'm bending over grabbing the kiddos this summer at the lake house, beach, and pool! I will be wearing a 2 piece in my yard, but that's about it! I think one-pieces are beautiful, stylish, and appropriate for women of all ages and sizes. Plus, how beautiful are these options?! I found all of these online at Victoria's secret!

Ryan: LISA! Firstly, you look great and if I can show off my burrito belly & cheesy nautical star tats at the pool, you can show off your slammin' MILF bod. SECONDLY, you're being disingenuous by only showing Victoria's Secret models in one-pieces. C'mon, those girls are so photo shopped you could put them in potato sacks and it would look good (and yes, they are exceptionally good-looking as well). I will say this - one-pieces appear to have come a long way from Aunt Merthel's 1952 vacation photos, but LADIES - guys look forward to summer for one thing & one thing only - we want to see some skin! We love when you lose all the layers and start reminding us of what we've forgotten you had over the dreary, seemingly never-ending winter months (especially us Midwest guys - you west-coasters don't know how good you have it!). Sure, there's hypocritical, asshole dudes out there who have the nerve to slam girls physiques while they have their beer belly hanging out (fuck those tools), but most of us are way less judgemental and love to see you in all your imperfect glory. Lisa - grab the kids - we're going bikini shopping at Target!

Lisa: Oh shit, I already ordered a one-piece from Victoria's Secret (not shown because the style sold out). Ummmm, a girl can never have too many suits right?! I'll take you up on the bathing suit shopping trip babe!
I've got an amazing hubby!

Great post, I love this one. I have been looking for a one piece and I really like the bandeau one on the bottom left corner. Thanks for sharing your and your husbands thoughts.

LOVE this post....I think my hubs appreciates my body too...having given birth to his son and somehow managed to get back in SOME sort of shape. Maybe not my old pre baby self, but pretty darn close lol.
Keep the one peice...and go bikini shopping anyway!
Happy Memorial Day weekend.

I love it!!!
You're hubby needs to speak to all men (although my hubby is very encouraging like that too). I totally love the looks of the one pieces these days, but I decided that I won't wear one until I have to. And I very much doubt that you "have to"

Awesome post! Sadly, some of our mommy bods have a lot more than a lack of firmness. I'll forever keep my stretchmarks hidden under a one piece! I'm so glad one pieces are so stylish these days.

Gwen said...

Ryan is too funny! I love the honesty. Great post. There are so many new stylish one piece suits now too, it is hard to choose just one style!

Stacy said...

Ms.Fashionista said...

Love all those suits! SO agree about all the Victoria Secret's models looking good in anything b/c they are photoshopped!

I have one that looks exactly like the two on the left, but it's white with black polka dots! The strap is removable so it can be worn either way. I love it because it's comfortable, flattering and everyone says it's cute.
Ryan's point of view is hilarious and awesome. What a great husband!

Elizabeth said...

I have been thinking the exact same way! I literally just asked my husband if I need to start wearing tankinis, the good man said no way, but I don't believe him :) I love these one pieces!

Grace said...

Melody said...
