“One Piece Swimsuits?!” Or, “The One Piece Connector?”

It’s time for a vote, ladies and gentlemen! We all know that swimsuit season is around the corner and we all know that whether we ignore it or not …it will still come! While many are just looking for a classic one piece others will be searching for a flattering two piece. However, there has been one category that has yet to be recognized…I like to call it “The Connector”!

This one strip that is connecting the top of a two piece to the bottom making it a category of its own a.k.a “The Connector” certainly may be hot in a music video, in a photoshoot, or hey even laying out, but is it possible to get a descent tan line from these so called swim suits?

Remember Friends don’t let Friends get bad tan lines (well…until they see their back in the mirror). So would your friend tell you if this suit was a bad idea? Does the connector piece bunch up when you sit down? Can you actually swim in the swimsuit?

So many questions yet so little answers!

It’s time we put this growing trend to an ultimate vote: What do you think is it a HIT or a MISS?

  1. I think some of them can be cute on the right person – like the striped one in your shopstyle image. But honestly, they will forever remind me of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman … those “connector” dresses she kept wearing!

  2. I think it depends on each individual design. Sometimes it looks incredibly tacky, and sometimes it looks good. I don’t tan though, I’m pale and I like to keep it that way, so the issue of tan lines isn’t really a problem for me. Personally, I don’t think tans look good on anyone who wasn’t naturally born that way. But as far as “The Connector” goes…strictly from a style viewpoint it could be okay, but in terms of practicality…not so much.

  3. I’m looking for a swimsuit to compliment my rugged body and cover up unsightly chest hair. Do they make the connectors for men?
