How to Avoid the Most Common One-Piece Bathing Suit Mistakes

Bathing suit season is basically here, which means it’s time to flaunt what you got.

While bikinis have been all the rage for forever, one-pieces have had a resurgence this season.

If you’re not sure whether a one-piece is right for you, have no fear.

We’ve put together a list of the most common one-piece bathing suit mistakes and how you can avoid them.

1. Wax instead of shaving

If you’re into the au naturel look, then by all means, skip this portion of the syllabus. But if you’d rather be Barbie-smooth, read on.

Getting yourself a wax is always a good look when you know your crotchal area is going to be on display, but it’s especially important if you’re wearing a one pice.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but one-pieces tend to show off more crotch than regular bikinis, which tend to sit lower on your hips and cover more of your Netherlands.

Granted, you could always just shave, but girl, unless you remember to change your razor, your bikini line might be in for a bumpy ride. Either way, you might want to check out fur oil — it’s apparently miraculous when it comes to getting rid of ingrown hairs.

Set yourself up for success on this one and save yourself the effort in Facetune later.

2. Make sure you won’t be able to read your lips in it

I sort of just touched on this earlier, but I can’t bring up this point enough: one pieces cover less of your crotch.

On the one hand, that’s hot. You’re basically walking sex.

But on the other hand, it’s a recipe for disaster.

If you have to readjust your bathing suit every five seconds so your friends won’t be able to read your lips, then no matter how cute your bathing suit looks, it probably wasn’t worth the $40-$80 you spent on it.

And don’t even get me started on all the extra sand that’ll get all up in your business without a solid form of border control in place.

The idea of a wall between Mexico and the US isn’t a great idea, but your nether regions could use one unless you want a public indecency fine.

3. Don’t buy a wedgie suit

There’s nothing worse in this life than the sight of a wedgie suit.

If you don’t know, that’s the name we here at Galore have given to swimsuits that are cut so high they expose your entire pelvic bone.

For the most part, they don’t even look good on the 100-pound models of the world, and not to harp on this, but your labia will always be in danger of falling out.

Honestly, if you want to show off that much of your pelvis, you should just be naked.

You’ll look better and you won’t have to deal with a constant front and back wedgie situation. 
Seriously. Don’t do this to yourself.

4. Choose your slogans wisely

I won’t tell you not to wear a cutesy slogan-y one piece because they’re trendy and it’s your body so who cares, but I will offer this word of advice: 
if you can’t handle strangers making 10+ puns or jokes or conversations about it every single time you wear it, then you shouldn’t buy it. 
Because that will happen.

5. Know your body

Just because one-pieces cover more of your body than a traditional bikini, you’re lying to yourself if you think a one piece will be some form of magic coverup. In fact, they might leave you feeling even more exposed.

If you have big boobs, don’t buy something you’ll constantly be falling out of.
 Buy something like this.

If you don’t like your midsection, don‘t buy something with ruching down the sides. 
Buy something like this.

One pieces are basically just bodysuits made out of different fabric, so use your common sense when it comes to buying them.

6. Always keep your tanlines in mind

Obviously you’re wearing a one piece so there will be parts of you that just don’t get tan, but make sure you’re not setting yourself up for disaster.

7. Keep it thotty

Unless you’re going for the modesty/mommy blogger look, 
it’s safe to assume you still want to look hot in your one piece.

While haters say only babes wear bikinis, they clearly don’t get out much.

Here are some tips to keep things hot:

When you’re choosing your prints, don’t go for anything you think could be sold at a Limited Too. 
If you have your choice of prints, maybe go for a leopard print instead of an orange and pink tropical print. 
Like this one.

If you have your choice of cuts, maybe go for the one that looks like a thotty bodysuit you always bought on Dollskill that one time but were like, when would I ever wear this IRL. Like this one.

Remember, half of the fun of bathing suits is racking up the likes on Instagram, so choose wisely.

8. Buy something you can also wear to the club

Like I literally just said, one piece swimsuits basically look like bodysuits anyway, so if you really have your mind on your money and your money on your mind, choose something you can wear day and night.

Like this one.

Happy day thotting, fam.
