Sydney’s Picks: Sweet Swimsuits for Summer
The Daybook bloggers shares her top picks for bikinis, retro two-pieces, and stylish one-pieces. By Sydney Poulton

With vacation and pool party season upon us, it’s finally time to start breaking out the swimsuits. Luckily, gone are the days of only finding style variety in the traditional bikini, and here to stay (I hope!) is the emerging alternative trend of high-waisted two-pieces and flattering one-pieces. No matter what your favorite swimsuit silhouette is, here are my favorite picks for a little splash-filled fun in the sun this summer.


Look extra flirty in these pretty little two-pieces covered in patterns, solids, and polka dots.

High-Waisted Two-Piece

This retro style comes in all sorts of styles and colors—perfect for those who want to show some skin, but not too much.

One Piece

Low backs, notice-me animal prints, sweetheart necklines—these are not your mother's speedo, that's for sure.

    Aren't mormons big advocates for modesty? Where does a bikini fit in with that?

    This column is not just for Mormon readers. She is writing these articles for all women who are interested. And, if you'll look at the actual article, Sydney is not modeling ANY bathing suits in this article, let alone anything that would be considered immodest by Mormon readers. And, to sum things up, I don't feel that you have any right to question how she chooses to present herself, regardless of what you think 'Mormons are supposed to wear'.
