This swimsuit is called Bill.

I’m telling you this, partly because it’s totally not what I’d have expected (I mean, I’d have said it was more of a Tallulah, personally, or maybe a Scarlett, wouldn’t you?), but mostly to try and distract you from the fact that I just posted photos of myself in a swimsuit, because if there’s something MORE cringeworthy than that, I don’t know what it is.

I mean, let’s face it, taking photos of your outfits is weird enough without adding swimsuit shots into the mix, right? It’s hard not to feel like you’re doing some kind of low-rent glamour shoot, and even harder not to imagine everyone looking at the photos and being all, “Who the hell does she think she is?” and then zeroing in on all the things you hate about your body.

It’s kind of a shame to always feel embarrassed about being seen in a swimsuit, though, because we all wear them, and they’re the probably one of the hardest items of clothing to shop for, so let the record show that:

a) This is the best swimsuit I’ve ever worn, seriously.

b) Also the most expensive – YIKES. (Full disclosure: I saved up Shopbop credits for it – I’d never have justified it otherwise…)

c) Worth it, though. Because it’s basically like a dress in swimsuit form. It pulls you in, holds you up, doesn’t ride up when you walk, or have to be constantly yanked up in case you inadvertently flash someone…

Oh,, and no, it doesn’t turn see-through in the water: I did make sure to test that in private first, though!

  • I’m in love with Norma Kamali, i wanted to buy a swimwear from the Bill mio Collection, only black was available, so I bought a Wolford swimbra and bottom from the Tabitha serie. The style is something not too far, I paid half the price (the white one was on sale) than Norma Kamali, I think is beautiful but i still love the NK…
