One-Piece Wonder: A FTF Blog Event

I don't care how thin or hair-free or self-confident you are: I am convinced that every woman has days where she doesn't feel like baring it all. While itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikinis rule the beaches, there is something so alluring about the one-pieces and high-waisted retro styles that are making a comeback.

Just ask Betty Grable.

I've been on the lookout for the perfect one-piece bathing suit, and I'm finding plenty of vintage inspiration - from flappers to the sunbathers of the Beach Blanket Bingo era.

Unfortunately, Boston is a wasteland when it comes to beachwear (must be those pesky, six-month-long winters), and I'm always indecisive when it come to online shopping. ModCloth and Spanx have some decent options, though. Any other suggestions?
