Is it just me or is it every woman’s worst nightmare to go swimsuit shopping every summer season? Seriously, I haven’t had a single instance where swimsuit shopping has been fun! It’s even worse when you see all of the trending swimwear and know that you wouldn’t feel comfortable in any of them! Fortunately, a little thing called the monokini suit is just what I needed to love the way I look in a swimsuit. Plus, they’re incredibly stylish! Check out this cute suit style today!
What Is A Monokini Suit?
First thing is first, what exactly is a monokini? Designed by Rudi Gernrich in 1964, the monokini was designed to be completely topless. Thank goodness style has since evolved, am I right? Nowadays, a monokini is very similar to a one-piece swimming suit. And yes, your top half is covered, I promise! In fact, it’s just like a one-piece swimming suit except for the fact that it has fashionable cutouts on the sides!
These cute cutouts are exactly what makes a monokini so fashionable: it shows just the perfect amount of skin. Seriously! I love my monokini because it hides my belly pouch that was leftover from my pregnancies while still looking fun and fashionable. You can find a monokini as revealing (or unrevealing) as you would like! I’m always left with pretty gnarly tan lines after a day on the beach in one of these. But isn’t that half of the fun?
Have I convinced you to try one out? You won’t regret it! Take a look at some of the options below when choosing your own monokini:
This swimsuit makes it easy to see why monokinis are trending swimwear! Though still chic and fashionable, this high neckline monokini will keep you from having a dreaded nip-slip in the surf while looking fashionable. And it rings in at an affordable $27.99. Much cheaper than a bikini set!
I would describe my style as mostly bohemian, so I really loved this monokini from Cupshe. And at first glance, you can’t even tell that there are cutouts at all! This monokini is also available in a variety of colors, so you can pick the one that works the best with your skin tone.
I love the retro feel of the monokini below, from Target. And not only is it super retro-inspired and still trendy, but this swimsuit seriously looks incredible on just about any kind of body shape. You’ll love the way you look in this cute suit! Find it at Target.
I love this monokini because all of the cute cutouts are covered in a layer of see-through mesh, for a super unique look. Not only that, but the styling of the neckline and shaping of the cutouts around the stomach remind me of a figure skating dress and I love it! Find it at Target for $49.99.
