I need a bathing suit!

1/2/3/4/5/6

I've worn the same bathing suit for SIX summers. (You can see it here.)  I wore a maternity bathing suit a few summers ago, but besides that, I've busted that red one out every year.  I love it, and it's still in great condish, but it's time for a new one.

After searching around online, these are the 6 contenders.  I'm probably going to throw #5 out the window first, just because it's not a full on one-piece, (and I can't be having any wardrobe malfunctions on the beach with two babies), but it was just way too cute not to consider.

Out of these 6, which one would you choose?  Do you have your bathing suit for this summer?

I don't have one ready for summer and you have reminded me that I need to get on that! I love the looks of numbers 2 and 4. Very retro. I love the polka dots.

I like 2 and 4 the best. I have one like 2, but it's red. I love the polka dots! I got a one piece (red polka dots) last year, but barely wore it so it's practically new.

Ahhhh I love them all but number one is my fave!'

Oops, accidently deleted my comment. I like 2 and 3 best! Very cute!!

Niki Caron said...

Oh my gosh I love all of these!! The black polka dot one is my favorite!

Sarah said...

I immediately fell in love with #6! The peplum is adorable. Number four is a close second...

Helene said...

OMG! all of these are seriously so cute! but my fave is #5!

Julie Wiard said...

My votes goes to number 4 the best! Number 1 is super cute but without any straps it could be difficult because you have to keep pulling it up all the time. Number 6 is cute but a white bathing suit is just asking for something to be spilled on it. Hope this helped!

#2 is really calling out to me! So adorable!

GoldenGirls said...

Ohhhhh I love all of these but I think the first one is my fav!! Hugs from Cali! xx The Golden Girls

Katie Skelley said...

I am obsessed with polka dots, so I say either of your polka choices. I am glad that you are not getting rid of the red, it is super cute.

I can't wear one-pieces. :( I wish that I could but I am very short-waisted and being so tall, I am not proportional. I have not worn a one-piece since junior high. They look so weird on me!

Catherine Shaw said...

I love the suit with the little peplum. I could not get away with wearing it but I'm sure you'd look fab. And by the way, The Tiny Heart Sent me.

Hailey LoveLaughterandLipstick said...

I am drying over #2 seriously perfect! No need to search any further. :)

I'm straying against what almost everyone has said but I am LOVING #1 and #3. Polka dots are ALWAYS in style though, and the simple black and white will never get old. :)

However -- you can rock ANYTHING so any of these would work.

rooth said...

One or three! I'm looking for a good two piece with no straps - my skin is a little too vampirish right now

Rachel said...

2 & 3 are my favorites!

Rebecca said...

I would actually say #5! It's so cute! I've been hunting for a good pair of high waisted bikini bottoms, and those look perfect. I've actually had more almost-wardrobe-malfunction-situations with one pieces than I have with two pieces. I don't know if my torso is long or what, but one pieces always ride down on me.

Colleen said...

My vote is two! looks like it would be a flattering fit.

Emily said...

#1! #1! I've been eyeing that baby since I first saw it on Pinterest. SO cute. Although...peplum is the best.

Sherry P said...

Ohhhhh bathing suit shopping makes me NUTS! You gave me some inspiration and I will be tackling it again with this in mind, so thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu :}

Jordyn Sifferman said...

I'm in love with number one and number six! You would look adorable!
xxoo

Marsa said...

i love #1 and #2!!!

i got mine from bev swim and cant wait to wear it in hawaii :)

Laurie @ The Rookie Wife said...

For the first time in my life it appears as though I'll be wearing a whole piece this summer. Don't wanna be flabbing around on the beach like a whale after just giving birth! Haha. I really LOVE #2. Victoria's Secret has some cute ones.. I'm gunna have to find one as soon as Savanna decides to finally make her arrival!

Talisha Reupena said...

I love 2 and 4. They are all actually really cute!

Kirsten Wiemer said...

girl, i need a new swimsuit too. i dont go swimming because i dont have a swimsuit.
i love number 4!

Allyssa said...

1 & 2 are definitely my favorites!

Courtney said...

I love #1 if it comes with halter straps (can't be having it falling down while picking up kids haha) and then #3 is my second favorite. =)

Sarah said...

1 or 3 are my faves!! Im sure you will look adorable in any of them!

Mary said...

I love them all but will never wear a one piece again. Nursing is a breeze in a tankini, bathrooming soo much easier with two pieces. I don't even give the once piece a second glance!

Nicole | Pharr Away said...

I love #2 and #6! I'm on the hunt for a good suit as well. I need it by Memorial Day since we're taking a day trip to the beach that day! I'm clearly running out of time!

I have one that I LOVE but it's a two piece and I now need a one piece in order to hide the "stretchies" (i.e. stretch marks). I may end up going with one of the ones you've shown here :)!

LEIGH said...

Oh but #5 is sooo cute! But I think I'm totally into the polka dots because I'm all for #2 and #4 as well!

B said...

I love them all!! I would veto #1 unless it has straps you can attach. Strapless is great for tanning when you're sitting still but if you're gonna be chasing little boys around strapless might be tough! Let us know which one you choose.

Ragan said...

Well I am a polka dot fiend so I would definitely pick one with polka dots :) I love the one that is polka dot on top and solid on the bottom, what an interested way to break it up. Make it look like a two piece but its not!

smk053078 said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the first one...and I will say that JCP has some REALLY cute tankinis and one pieces this year. I got both my suits from there this season and they are affordable.

Charlie's Mommy (Beth) said...

#6 but in a different color if it were for me...I'm so pale!!

Sybil@PeaceitallTogether said...

These are all very cute! #6 is definitely my favorite!! I am looking for a new suit this year too.

Melissa said...

I like #2. I have a bathing suit I got and wore last year. You can see it here: http://melner.blogspot.com/2012/06/weekend-trip-to-jacksonville-arkansas.html.

It's from Pin Up Girl Clothing. It's retro and cute and has full coverage and provides lots of support. Plus it's flattering - it my opinion.

I now have it in black too. I want to get it in red too and I might eventually.

Oh and I like the one you have had for the past 6 summers. I am amazed that it is still in good condition - and you look great in it by the way!

Jamie Sefcik || Hello Little Scout said...

Yes! You can never go wrong with Anthro or J Crew. So cute!

Treasure Tromp said...

these are all fantastic but I especially love #2!

Becca Moss said...

I LOVE 1, 2, & 6 but I ain't down for all white. I'm sure you'll look great in any of them though!

Always Maylee said...

Oh I LOVE #2 and the price can't be beat! :)

xo, Yi-chia

Amy Shaughnessy said...

I like # 2. And while that strapless may be gorgeous, I can see some accidents happening with little ones. Little hands will find a way to pull your top down! (or lift it up. ugh)

I like number 2. And how the heck did you get a swimsuit to last 6 summers? Mine are completely destroyed by the end of each summer..

Ashley said...

#2! Soo cute!!!

Fit With Flash said...

#2!! You can't go wrong with that shape. I think it's flattering on everybody and would great on you. : )

brittany t said...

#2,3,4 are my faves! I love the retro look of 2 and 4 but #3 is a fun print as well!! at least we all can help you narrow it down lol. I don't even own a bathing suit..though i'd def go for these kinds of styles or tankini with a skirted bottom. I am stopping by from the tiny heart. you have such a cute family as well! hugs!

Susannah said...

I absolutely adore #2! :-)

Carlie said...

Love 2 and 4!

Kristen said...

If I had a body that looked great no matter what suit it was, I would totally go for #2! Although, I do like the tankinis (sp?) that are two pieces. I love the skirt bottom I have that I can mix up with my two long tops

carrieburke said...

I love #2 and #4, the polka dots are so cute!

Shalyse said...

Number 2 is my favorite!

Shalyse said...

Number 2 is my favorite!

JMc said...

I think #2 is really cute and I think you could totally pull off #5 too

lori said...

all of these are SO cute, but i'd have to say #2 if you MADE me choose one... i love #6- if it were in another color- because i don't think the white will last as long as your red suit.

so excited to see you tomorrow! text me when you get there :)

Helena Oops said...

Hello my deat!
I love them all!
But I would probably choose the number6..
Very nice post!

Jayme and Mendi said...

We love the first two and the last two. We say you need at least two new ones. :-) We see why you have had the red suit for 6 years. It's gorgeous and was a perfect fit. Hope you have a great weekend!!

I thought I liked #2, until I saw that topshop one. Dang, now I want it! I need a new one too. I'm going to eventually pick the one I want from lime ricki, in their parker barker line.

Tiffany said...

Ash! #4....a little colorblocking/dotting....fun

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Your #2 pick is GREAT! I love it!

Krista said...

I'm in the same boat, been wearing the same suit for like 6+ years. I so need a new one but will probably be busting out the same old one for one more year ;) These are all adorable choices, you can't go wrong!
