Unashamedly, one of the most influential movies of my life was Crocodile Dundee. Both Mick Dundee's raw outback look and Sue Charlton's, sleek, sexy style were imprinted into my young brain, as I watched all three from the trilogy countless times, often back-to-back.
One scene in particular stood out to me - the scene where Sue Charlton bathes by the river in a black, one piece thong. As a kid, this scene blew my mind. A thong on a bathing suit? You can do that? Ever since the first time I saw this scene, I have been searching for something similar.
This one piece suit from MamaZoo is like the white, slightly more modest, version of that suit (replace thong with Brazilian, and a little less side boob). And just as I suspected would happen when I finally discovered this dream suit, I can't stop wearing it. I've worn it in both the ocean and on land - both as a bathing suit, and as a body suit, pairing it with everything from jean shorts for full-length skirts, and it just seems to work with everything. It's truly the most flattering suit I've worn in a loooooooong time.
I'm considering going a little more literal and snagging it in black as well - because if Sue wore it, I want it too.
