The One-Piece That Won't Embarrass You in Front of Relatives

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked editorial director Izzy Grinspan

Keyhole tanksuit in french stripe, $110 at Madewell

In an ideal world, we'd all own a zillion bathing suits: cute bikinis, sophisticated maillots, sporty one-pieces. But in reality, a girl can only buy so much swimwear, and if you don't pick carefully, you'll wind up at your boyfriend's family reunion looking like an extra in Spring Breakers —or worse, on a beach filled with Vanessa Hudgenses, looking like your boyfriend's mom. This Madewell tank is cool enough not to feel dowdy, but covered-up enough that you can wear it to work or family events without worrying about flashing anyone. In case you really don't trust your boobs to behave themselves, the tie around the back adds extra support.
