Imagine your perfect beach day: Does it include laying out and enjoying the sunshine? Splashing in the waves? Chasing after grandkids or pets? Whatever floats your boat, you'll need a swimsuit that can keep up — and stay put no matter what.
It's not easy finding a suit that you feel comfortable in, let alone one that accentuates the stuff you want to show off. But Amazon shoppers believe they've discovered a one-piece unicorn. And it's on sale!
The Prettygarden Backless One-Piece, down to just $19 (from $35) in select sizes and colors, has thousands of five-star reviews. Plus, if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
It really is a special suit. For starters, it has a flattering U-shaped neckline that provides enough coverage that you won't spill out mid-dip. And the sides are cut in just the right way to offer a slimming effect. Thanks to built-in tummy control, the one-piece flatters your midsection while the high-cut bottom makes your legs look miles long.
"Two very enthusiastic thumbs up from a confirmed mom bod," shared one of over 4,400 five-star shoppers. "This suit hides my bleh-parts and highlights my yay-bits. Absolutely getting more colors!"
Speaking of which, there are 25 options to choose from! The solid colors have adjustable straps, while the prints have fixed straps.
Shared another beach babe: "I am a very curvy lady who enjoys bikinis, but was looking for a one-piece that still felt sexy. This is a great choice. I have a very long torso and was worried this would be like every other suit I've tried on in the past...But I was pleasantly surprised! It fit amazing...It is low cut, shows a little side boob and is flattering on the butt!"
A third fan writes: "This swimsuit fits like a glove and really hugged my body in all the right places! I don't normally wear one-piece swimsuits because I love to tan my body as much as possible, but once I tried this swimsuit on I knew I had to wear it even if that meant my tummy would be deprived of some vitamin D. The back part had a cheeky coverage so it did a great job at exposing the right amount of skin. The material was great and it looked fantastic. I knew I had to get a mini photo shoot in this swimsuit!"
Shoppers report feeling fantastic in this suit. "The last thing I wanted to do was be in a bathing suit last year, five months postpartum/c-section. I wanted to make memories with my family and friends, so I chose to suck it up...or in," says a five-star reviewer. "THIS swimsuit gave me confidence. It covers, supports and is so flattering in the back! I’ve sent the link to several friends who had similar body concerns and I hope it brings them confidence this summer."
Did we mention this superhero swimsuit is nearly 50% off right now? The water's fine! It's time to add to cart and hit the beach!

(Reuters) -Judges in Florida and Kentucky on Thursday moved to block those states from enforcing bans or restrictions on abortion after the U.S. Supreme Court last week overturned the 1973 Roe v.
