If it sounds like I'm always trying to talk about swimwear, it's because I am. As a bonafide lake/ocean/pool gal, I am never too far away from a bathing suit, especially when the forecast begins to creep over that 25-degree mark.
And while I have several swimwear brands on rotation (Byron Bay, Aerie and Reformation's now-defunct swim line are all worth mentioning), it's Everlane's V-Neck One-Piece that holds the title as my most-worn suit this summer — and it just so happens to be 50 per cent off this August long weekend.
To learn why the sustainable swimsuit has earned my recommendation and several compliments from strangers on the beach, scroll below.
Everlane's V-Neck One-Piece features a deep V neckline, a built-in shelf bra, removable pads and wide, adjustable straps.
The swimsuit is made from fully-lined Italian fabric with technical quick-drying and fade-resistant properties and was fit-tested on 112 different women to ensure a comfortable, flattering, and uninterrupted fit.
Each bathing suit is made from 82 per cent Econyl yarn, an earth-friendly fabric created using recycled waste like fishing nets, fabric scraps, and industrial plastic.
Everlane's V-Neck One-Piece, or my Baywatch bathing suit, as coined by my friends, has become my go-to swimsuit this summer.
As a bustier gal (I wear a 32 DD), I have always strayed away from triangle bikini tops and deeply cut swimsuits because when I head to the beach, I, shockingly, want to go swimming and when doing so, would like to avoid any peep show-type of mishaps.
While the bathing suit's V-neckline deserves its Pamela Anderson moniker, it's always kept me in place, come laps, pool parties, and braving the less-than tropical waters of Lake Ontario.
The swimsuit has earned praise from strangers on the beach, with everyone wanting to know where they could buy its equally as colourful twin.
My only critique of the swimsuit, as mentioned in the reviews below, is that the bottom could be a bit cheekier. As it sits, your full bum is covered by the suit, and while I will avoid a thong-style swimsuit until the day I die, I would have preferred something sexier to match the cleavage-baring front style.
What people are saying
With dozens (upon dozens) of reviews singing its praises, Everlane shoppers call the eco-friendly one-piece the "best fitting swimsuit [they've] ever owned."
It's "stunning," raves one user. "It has a bit of padding in the chest, covers my bum, and the straps are adjustable," they say. It's "truly the smartest design, fits great, and looks slammin'."
"As a busty gal, bathing suits that fit are hard to find," writes a second reviewer. However, because of the adjustable straps, "this one fits perfectly. The V is deep but at least on this 50-year-old, [it's] still very respectable."
A third shopper says they have "never felt so good in a swimsuit." Adding, it "shows off my assets while covering the rest."
Despite a 4.14-star rating, some users say that while the swimsuit is the "most flattering" they've ever tried, they wish it was a bit "more cheeky."
The colour and quality are "amazing," according to one reviewer; however, they "wish" the design had a higher leg and a cheekier cut.
If you're on the hunt for a sexy-meets-practical swimsuit this summer, Everlane's V-Neck One-Piece may be exactly what you're looking for. Its V-neckline will hold you in and according to dozens of Everlane reviewers, the bathing suit is one of the "best fitting" they have ever worn.
Right now, the V-Neck One-Piece is 50 per cent in the colour Beech, (shop here) and if you're looking for my Baywatch version of the suit, it will cost you a (very reasonable) $107 CAD/$70 USD. To shop the swimsuit and more Everlane swim apparel on sale, scroll below.
