While clicking around online yesterday I stumbled on something that made me stop and do somewhat of a double take.

And yes, it’s a women’s bathing suit.

No, it’s not some skimpy little two piece that shows off every insecurity known to man females.

It’s a patchwork one piece by Anthropologie, formally called the Sweetheart Patchwork Maillot. Yes, I said “one piece.” Take a look below.

So, how do you like it?

Females with a longer torso will likely be able to pull this off with ease, but if that’s not you, it still might be worth a shot.

The patchwork is a nice look, as is the green belt just above the waistline. Also, the straps are adjustable/removable, which will help give you a couple ways to wear it.

If you’re still scratching your head about the fact that this is a one piece, remember, I’m a guy. You can go search for the “best” two piece all day long, and fully expect to blend in with all the other girls at the beach/pool. If you put this suit on you’re going to stand out from the crowd, and probably look really darn great along the way.

One thing to consider is that when you wear a one piece, you’ll need to do so with confidence. Why? Because they aren’t worn all that often and will get attention, which means you’ll get a few looks, regardless if you’re wearing this Sweetheart Patchwork Maillot suite from Anthropologie.

It’s not the most inexpensive bathing suit in the world, but you can click here to pick one up for yourself.
