red halter swimsuit vintage plus sizeHere comes summertime and all its pool parties, beach trips, and picnics along the river! Are you groaning? Fretting over all the swimsuit time in your future? Trying to figure out how you can skip THEM ALL? Well, you can if you must, but bathing suit worries shouldn't keep you away from all the fun in the sun. Girl, you need to get out there and work what you got! And we all got something!

The good news is that this year's swimsuits have lots of built-in solutions for what you probably consider "flaws." Yes, finally!
