This is the summer of the one-piece bathing suit, and I have to say, it's a welcome change to the typical bikinis that resurface every year. I'm glad that the one-piece is finally seeing its (pun intended) day in the sun.
But let's dispel a common assumption that too many people have about one-pieces; that they're unsexy, and reserved for moms and professional swimmers. Trust me, when you see what's in style for one-pieces this year, you'll realize that myth couldn't be further from the truth.
There are no rules or rigid ideals about who can rock a one-piece; it just comes down to the style and design that you love best. It's time to show these awesome swimsuits the love they deserve. After all, the safety and security that a one-piece provides will save you from a lot of potentially embarrassing and stressful moments.
This is the style that seems to appear most often in one-pieces this summer; no matter what type or shape you're wearing, low and cut-out backs are a feature in most suits. The great thing is, the many variations mean that you can definitely find one that works for you.
I love how effortlessly sexy the laced-up look is. For this season, lacing across the bust is most popular, but if you want to show off your legs, pick one that has lace-ups on the side. The adjustable strings allow you to be as modest or as daring as you please.
I think this might be my favourite one-piece look; I love how you get great coverage while still looking stylish and sexy. Halters come in many variations, from high up to the neck, to lower cuts with longer straps. Whatever you choose, I highly recommend trying out one of these suits - they're very adaptable for different bust sizes, which is a relief for all of us.
If there's any style that proves one-pieces aren't boring or prudish, it's the daring cut-out styles that are all the rage right now. These lean more towards the tankini side of the swimsuit spectrum, so if you're a die-hard two piece girl, consider this style if you're hesitantly foraying into the one-piece world.
That deep v, though. This suit is going to be a guaranteed jaw-dropper, but at the same time, it's so simplistic and elegant. If you're nervous about a potential slippage of sorts, then start off with a mid-length v, and once you build up more confidence, you can proudly move on to that plunging neckline.
Anyone else feel like low-key side boob is the most popular trend of 2016? From bralettes, to tattoos, to open-sided shirts, girls are rocking side boob on the daily. And you know what? More power to us. One-piece bikinis with the "side scoop" are an awesome way to continue this trend, and the simple shape of the suit can work for any body type.
Mesh offers a whole new way to get that sultry look without sacrificing coverage or support. Whether you choose a suit with more mesh, like the one above, or one with just a hint on the sides or back, like the second photo, it's a simple and sexy way to rock a one-piece.
While there are obviously tons of trendy options for one-pieces this year, the classic and simple shape never fails. These work well if you need endurance and reliable coverage in all places; like if you're going water skiing at a cottage, or playing in the waves all day. Aside from the durability factor, there's always something sexy about simplicity - find one that hugs your curves and accentuates your best features, and you're set.
CF Fairview Pointe Claire is officially welcoming its very own Simons coming spring 2022 and the store is hiring a bunch of employees. It will be the West Island's very first Simons location. The popular department store already operates in downtown Montreal and the Galeries D'Anjou.
In a Facebook announcement posted on January 24, Simons shared its opening and hiring plans. "In addition to putting the finishing touches on this spectacular new store, we are currently forming the team that will give it its warm and one-of-a-kind personality," they wrote.
Simons invited the public to visit its career page to review the seven available positions, including a sales associate job, a divisional manager role and even a mannequin stylist.
Cadillac Fairview issued a press release saying Simons will be located in the space formerly occupied by Sears situated in the shopping mall's western end. The Fairview location will occupy the second and third floors, offering shoppers access to its many brand names, including the exclusive Le 31 collection and Simons home department.
Simons also boasted about the new store's fresh and distinctive look. "In this new space, unique design elements highlight the beauty of noble natural materials like wood and stone. They blend beautifully together in this lively and bright environment that will also be home to a permanent installation by the talented artist, Brendan Tang," the post reads.
After shopping 'till you drop, you can also pay a visit to Fairview's other new space, the District Gourmand, a cafeteria located on the main level, a floor below Simons.
