When I use it: “I’ve been hankering for a vintage swimsuit for years and have always come up empty-handed because of the high prices. While scourging my local thrift store at the beginning of the summer, I gasped with delight when I happened upon this little ditty amongst some risque ’80s two-pieces. Women should feel beautiful, confident, and sexy in one-pieces just like they do in two-pieces. This suit makes me feel all three when I’m lazing around the pool in my cat-eye sunnies and a fashion magazine.”
Shopping tips: “Never give up on finding that ‘dream’ item. It will pop up someday in the most unexpected place.”
