The Find: a hot and sexy one-piece swimsuit for the ladies who are tired of bikini season
Bathing suit shopping is never fun, especially with teeny-tiny low-rise bikinis all over the place (come on, now). But in the last couple of years we have seen a shift from the super-tiny, barely-covering-the-pubic-area two-piece to sexy high-rise bikinis inspired by 1940s styles and one-piece options that have strategically positioned cutouts, setting them apart from the boring scoop-necked Speedo. One of our favourites this season is this almost wrap-like suit by Canadian designer Tosca Delfino, available now at Rac Boutique in Yorkville.
After 10 years of experience working in fashion houses like Missoni and Arthur Mendonça, Delfino launched her first and very personal line of swimwear this season in Canadian retail outlets. Every print is designed in house and has been inspired by Delfino’s travels, and every suit in the line is named after someone very close to her. This twisted teardrop paisley suit is named “Rita” after one of her best friends, a fashion stylist and editor in Toronto. But that only means something to about three people, so just buy it and look (and feel) smoking hot. $210.
