Little Black Swimsuit

If there is one beach essential that every woman should own, it is a little black swimsuit. Consider it the beach time equivalent to a LBD. But shopping for a little black swimsuit is easier said than done. It took me 10 tries (that is not a typo) to find one that fit! Simply put, “petite fit” swimwear does not exist.

Although only five feet tall, I have a curvy body. My bottom and XS have nothing in common. The only problem is, the next size up is too long in the torso! When you spend a pretty penny on a brand new item, the last thing you want to do is pay a tailor! I literally jumped for joy when I discovered TAVIK swim after reading a plethora of customer reviews. The most common complaint of this brand is that the swimsuits are cut short in the torso. BINGO – that is just what I was looking for! The Emme one piece suit is sexy and sophisticated. It provides moderate coverage while still accentuating your assets. Although a frustrating experience, it is a relief knowing there is at least one reliable bathing suit brand out there. Whether or not it was intentional, TAVIK tapped into a niche for shorties like me!

I LOVE a little black swimsuit because it is like a blank canvas. Piecing together an ensemble is so much fun when you do not have any limitations! It is always a good idea to start with the boldest accessory, then build up from there. I began with this round beach towel. After seeing the black, blue, and white together, I did not want to introduce another hue. Rather I stacked up on gold jewelry, including this striking necklace. Sticking with the minimalist color scheme, I covered up in a white sarong and matching hat.
