Talk about a famous and notorious swimsuit!  This flesh colored one piece swimsuit became an instant icon when Bo Derek wore the swimsuit in the movie “10”.  

Derek was as natural as possible without having clothes off with this skin colored one piece.  Her corn row adorned hair added an original touch to the outfit.  The second she put on this swimsuit in the movie, this picture became an icon of what a perfect 10 looks like.

This tan color swimsuit is as popular today as it once was.  The main attraction factor is that the swimsuit looks just like natural skin color.  From a distance it looks like there are no clothes on at all.  Do you think men love this?  Yes they do because it is sexy!  While not being overly skimpy the mere color and body clinging nature of this one piece are nevertheless sexy as all get out. 

Sexy swimwear does not have to mean skimpy swimwear

As you prepare to slip into your swimsuit this season, just be aware that a skimpy string bikini is not your only sexy option.  You can look sexy with interesting fabric or unique color. Novel details and a variety of swimsuit styles can be sexy.  If you think you can’t wear a suit like this as plus size you are wrong.  The fact is, this natural looking suit is something you can easily couple with a crochet or nice beach cover-up that is loose and opens in the front.  A swimsuit like this paired with a soft coverup can help hide figure flaws. With a cover-up draped over, you get a sexy peek-a-boo look with a flesh toned swimsuit underneath.

If you want to adopt a classic supermodel look, try a flesh toned swimsuit and couple it with a cool hair style like a braid.  If you have modesty issues try an open beach coverup to go over the swimsuit so you don’t feel quite so exposed in it.  Hot!

Flesh colored one piece swimsuit


Certain women have figures that are perfect except for one area which is the tummy area. It’s almost like they have a male type figure and the gut. It’s totally random but some women gain their weight in the hips and guts and others carry it more in the rear end or buttock.

If you are the type that has hip bulge or a small tummy, or even excess skin in that are after childbirth, this is swimsuit is a fabulous design. What is nice is that the fabric is light and area but still does the job of concealing flaws. The elastic down the sides will definitely help hide hip bulge. And, the puckered tummy will help diminish the notice-ability of a chubby stomach.

When you combine the concealing textures of the tummy and sides of this cute one piece with the sexy top, you’ve got a great figure flattering swimsuit. This is a great suit for showing off a nice chest and legs while down playing a chubby gut or hip rolls. The color seems a bit drab yet all one color suits are quite slenderizing. The skin tone color can actually be sexy as it blends to the skin and looks bare even though you are fully covered. Sweet!

Elle looks right at home at the beach.  

The photo was taken in Australia by Queen International.  You can picture Elle on an adventurous tropical vacation enjoying the beach without a care in the world.  It’s a timeless photograph and perfect example of the natural beauty look.
