A Swimsuit For Women Who Hate Swimsuits

I did not have the emotional bandwidth to go through the process of looking for swimwear this summer. And yet, I ordered close to 30 swimsuits to try on at home.

All but one left me curled up in a ball of self-loathing.

I’m long past the point in life when I could mindlessly throw a bikini in my duffle bag and head to the beach. Having babies, turning 40, non-stop work and all of 2020 took a massive toll on my body.

The Miraclesuit Illusionists Crossover One-Piece
is hands down the best suit I’ve worn in years.

Dare I say, it makes me feel pretty?

It’s chic and youthful, while still taking care of all the things it needs to take care of. 

It’s not inexpensive, but I’m am asking for a lot. I need something supportive that covers my butt and also stylish.

The Miraclesuit Illusionists Crossover One-Piece



This suit will work for any body type. The v-neck line is universally flattering and the illusion waist line provides a visual slimming while also providing an element of tummy control.

Can you believe we have to ask not to let our cheeks hanging out? Thankfully, this suit provided full coverage. 

There are still sizes available, but at a variety of retailers. I ordered mine from Amazon since they had the most options. Sizes start at an 8 and go to a 24.  I ordered the 10.

I broke them down below:

Amazon (Black, Midnight, Sangria and Shiraz) all Sizes. 

Macy’s (Black and Midnight) Sizes 10 – 16. 

Neiman Marcus (Midnight) Sizes 8, 14, 16

Neiman Marcus (Black) Plus Sizes 16 – 24

Bloomingdales (Midnight) Sizes 14 – 16

Thanks for the tip, Meg. Does it run true to size?
