As you gear up to celebrate America’s greatness, you may be packing your Vuitton overnight bag with a few Fourth of July weekend essentials. But a monokini should not be one of them. Why not, you ask?
Oh, let’s have deposed Danity Kane singer Aubrey O’Day show us…
I think the look of terror and shame on Aubrey’s face says it all.
While the monokini may seem like a great garment to hide all those wobbly bits you won’t want to flaunt in a two-piece, it actually has the reverse effect and makes you appear boxy and shapeless thanks to that middle strip that only serves to highlight the fact that you are in fact wider than it is.
So loves, if you aren’t quite ready to show off your not-so-hard body, stick to a one piece with high-cut legs or a string bikini, which is universally flattering and–most importantly–adjustable so you won’t get muffin tops and spillage.
Aren’t you glad you have me to steer you away from Aubrey-like mistakes and toward summer gorgeousness? God bless America, darlings!
