If I Were Skinny I Would Wear That: Hot-Now Bathing Suits

Cut-out Twist One Piece $68 USd

My fashion-stylist friend Afiya Francisco tells me that cutouts are a big trend in swimwear this summer. Again. She can't figure out why -- "Worst tan lines ever," she points out.

If I were skinny, I would totes wear this suit from Victoria's Secret (my inner skinny would absolutely flaunt). And I'd be damned sure to wear Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100 ($12.99), despite my issue with it -- if you do the math you'd erroneously think you'll be protected for 25 hours instead of just two and a half.

For more on hot-now suits, tips on bra-size swimwear, and a picture of boys in board shorts, check out my story in the Metro News today (the print version is here, on pages 47 and 48).
