Bikini, Tankini or One Piece

Let the countdown begin! With a little over 3 weeks until our trip to Atlantis I am counting down the days until we head south to the Bahamas – Give me the sun, the sand & a cocktail in my hand!

I swear, sometimes I love the time leading up to a trip just as much as the trip itself…ok, not really AS much, but I love the planning, packing, shopping & anticipation that leads up to a fun vacation!

So I am currently in the planning/shopping stage of our upcoming trip. Let me give you some more info on our vacay plans – this is a trip the Husband’s company takes their employee & significant others on.  It’s a pretty sweet deal, if I do say so myself. Charles & I have actually been on this trip 3 times before – it’s an amazing long weekend away! The annual trip was on hiatus for the past few years but for 2013 they are bringing it back  {wooohoo!!}

So here is my question – now that you know this is a work trip {of sorts}…

Which bathing suit do you like best for the trip? 

I currently only own bikinis, but I have been thinking about getting a one piece or a tankini for this trip for a few reasons:

  • Business Casual: the Hubs colleague’s/work peeps will be in attendance {let’s keep it classy kids}
  • H20: water slides , lazy rivers, dolphin encounters:  with all the amazingness that comes within the Atlantis experience, I don’t need any wardrobe malfunctions going on, especially in front of people we know!
  • Peer Pressure: 95% of all the other women going are either a) preggo or b) bringing along their toddlers – so I assume they will be wearing one pieces or tankini’s, like they have in the past – is it weird if I am one of the only one’s wearing a bikini? Or am I over-thinking it?
  • Something New: I don’t own a tankini or one piece – lots of them are super cute these days so I figure it could be a good time to try something new!

So I went through some of my favorite shopping sites and picked out a few that I like. I would love to know your thoughts on my picks as well as what’s appropriate to wear for our upcoming vacation!

So those were just a few of my favorites that I am thinking about –
a few one pieces, tankini’s & even 2 two pieces thrown in for fun!

Would love to know your thoughts! What would you pick?!


And for your reading pleasure, here is a recap from our last trip to the Atlantis

    You have some very good points about the business perspective of the trip, so I would suggest a two piece tankini (that covers the middle) or a nice one piece that is long enough to cover the backside, won’t ride up and have high enough legs to make it sexy. Love the VS one piece you have featured on the blog (the color is gorgeous and I love the back view). Just make sure whatever you buy fits properly.

    If you are thinking about it and questioning a bikini you might not be completely comfortable if you don’t have another option. All I own is bikinis as one pieces never seem to fit properly. If I were going away with work associates I think I would go for a tankini. I love the VS one you have a picture of!

    Also look a monokini. I got one and love it. Cover a little more but feels like a bikini still.
