No matter whether you boast a flawless body or prefer to camouflage a few trouble spots, there are times when a slightly modest swimsuit feels more appropriate (hello, office swim party). Finding the perfect suit for such occasions can be harder than it sounds. It has to stay in place while chasing kids, perform as intended in the water and show off your figure’s assets all at the same time. For this dilemma, it’s a smart idea to go retro. In one or two-piece options, the swimwear featured below looks a bit sexy but doesn’t reveal anything you wouldn’t want your boss (or your kids’ friends) to see. And if you’re pregnant, styles like these are perfect as you progress from trimester to trimester.
