Wonderful….one piece swimsuits were all the rage in the 1950’s.

Below are a few images that I hope will give you a “very vintage visual” on just how lovely this look can be today.

Swimsuit Inspiration

Leave it to J. Lo, to give us all a little “push” in our push up routine. La Lopez looks drop dead gorgeous in all the swimwear she’s sporting in her latest Vogue shoot.  (Photographed by uber fabu photographer Mario Testino). So.o.o.o if you’re in need of a little work out motivation (just in time for the impending swimsuit season-which by my calculations start in exactly 4 days)  keep the latest issue of Vogue near by. Chances are it will inspire you to do “one more” set….

Remember it’s called work-out for a reason.

Swimsuit Season-Rules to Live By

Posted By: Terri

Just as we’re licking the last bits of Chocolate off our Cadbury Easter eggs we realize that in just a few short weeks we will be smack dab in the throws of swimsuit season. Yes-it’s THAT time of year again. Soon you can slip into that perfect little bikini number you bought on sale in  a moment of wishful grandeur last season or the two piece you purchased sometime mid-January after you survived the flu and lost 10 pounds because you couldn’t keep anything down.

Unless you have the genetic blessings of a supermodel there are few women on the planet that look to this time of year with Glee-and by Glee I am NOT referring to the TV show but instead the circus mirrors that a woman must encounter in every dressing room-be it upscale retail or designer discount. Just the other day my darling friend Penny –who P.S. by the way is a perfect size 2 (but I still keep her as a dear friend  because quite frankly I’m a giver) but back to the dressing room mirrors-called up to say you must write something about dressing room mirrors. They are horrible. They make you look fat/thin/freakishly tan or deathly pale-insert whichever scenario applies. Rarely if ever do they represent how you really look. So, here’s a bit of advice for all you Glamour Girls looking to swimsuit shop for the season at hand:

Rule number 1: DO NOT-I repeat DO NOT go swimsuit shopping and enter any  dressing room  if your feeling the least bit bloated, depressed or hormonal on any level.

Rule Number 2: Lighting is key. If your dressing room lights are turned up brighter than a disco ball abort mission and just put the swimsuit on your charge card to try on at home. *Make sure you check the store return policy and NEVER take the tags off until you are 100 per cent sure that your suit is a keeper.

Rule Number 3: No woman on the planet is perfect-(well MAYBE Giselle –but she is a bonafide supermodel-so it doesn’t count-She’s just “Born that way”). Every woman has a few imperfections. The whole point of every swimsuit is to make you look fabulous! Accent the positive and detract from the negative. When in doubt about wearing your latest swimsuit-remeber these two words: self tanner and cover-up! They somehow make the whole swimsuit season do-able.
