2015 Bathing Suit Picks + Brazilian Bikini Advice

I've been super obsessed with bathing suits this year. I mean, yes, I always get a little excited about summer and swim suits each spring, but this year I've been going ham, y'all! And I'm not talking about some basic Victoria's Secret pieces, either. This year, I've really started to branch out and explore some more high end swimwear lines. Here are a couple of my favorite picks!

Speaking of faves, Brazilian style bikinis are super in this year and I have to say, I'm quite a fan - with the right tan and a couple of squats, of course. Finding the right one can be so tough, though! So, I wanted to let you know that thanks to yours truly, your hunt for the perfect Brazilian bikini is over! In fact you won't have to look at all!

What am I talking about? {Warning, you will think I'm crazy, but you will thank me later.} After ordering about 3 new bathing suits, I made the most brilliant discovery!! You don't need to buy anything new! 

Simply turn one of your existing bikini bottoms backwards! The cut that typically goes around the front of your hips, actually makes for the perfect Brazilian cut bottom. What happens to the front then, you ask? Well nothing really. There's not nearly as much left over fabric as you'd think. Y'all can laugh as much as you like, but go try one of yours bottoms and you will see I'm right. You're welcome in advance. haha. 

But really, though, let me know what you think! I've tried this tactic with about5 of my bottoms and it's worked every time! Now time to get that tan on fleek.

    1. I know right! I actually figured it out because I ordered a swimsuit and thought it was a Brazilian when it was delivered and then realized I'd put it on backwards! It was like a light bulb went off haha I was like "I have to try this on all of my other ones now" and it worked! Y'all must think I'm crazy!
