10 Cute but Not Skimpy Cossies

Summer is officially here and I am SO happy about it. As a water baby, I love going to the beach or splashing around in the pool on glorious summer days. But, in order to enjoy myself fully, I need to feel comfortable and confident.

Over the past few years, I’ve learned what style of cossie I prefer and which are the most flattering. In the process, I ditched the skimpy bikinis that made me feel self-conscious and replaced them with cool one-piece costumes that make me feel more confident and help me to enjoy the summer months to the fullest. I’m currently looking for the ideal high-waisted bikini to add to my collection – I think they’re super flattering and so #fashionable too. While scouring the internet, I found tons of amazing swimming costume options that are a little more modest (but not at all granny-ish). I saw Tails of a Mermaid do a one-piece edit, so I thought I’d share my picks too – and just in time for Black Friday!
