Essential Swimwear #Review and $50 GC #Giveaway

Finding the perfect bathing suit is a grueling process, it is probably the only shopping event of the year that I actually dread.  Searching through racks of swimwear that range from ultra-skimpy to frumpy is frustrating and usually leaves me feeling utterly depressed. Since I have entered motherhood my body just isn’t the same as it was ten years ago and although the mirror is telling me I can’t wear that string bikini anymore, my ego is not quite ready to banish my bikini.  This year Essential Swimwear has saved me from this dreaded experience.

The Chocolate Brown Twist Front Top has rapidly become my go-to swimsuit this year. With its retro-style look, and its magical ability to hide my flaws, I feel confident and sexy as I soak up the rays.  The top was designed using extra fabric which makes it perfect for my long torso. The additional fabric is also great because it creates ruffled pleats around my waist which helps to camouflage my not so tight middle.  The twist top design accentuates my curves and creates an optical illusion that I’m slightly bustier without a lot of additional padding.  The top also has adjustable halter straps that can be worn multiple ways which adds interest to the back of the suit making it even more unique.

The suit came with the high waist bottoms. These bottoms are designed with a three inch band which provides additional tummy control. If you don’t need the added control, you can simply fold the band down giving the suit more of a hipster look.  Initially I wasn’t fond of the idea of the high waistband and I assumed that I would be wearing the bottoms with the three inch band folded down.  Much to my surprise, the high waist bottoms are extremely comfortable. The three inch band provides the added tummy control without making the suit look frumpy, and the bottoms blend perfectly with the top to create a one-piece look with the convenience of a two-piece.
