Summer in the South: Essential Swimwear Review & Giveaway

When summer rolls around, every woman and girl out there knows how important it is to get the perfect swimsuit! If you have one that just isn't quite right, or doesn't fit the way it should, there is no way you can go out and have fun! You want to be comfortable and wear a suit that flatters you and makes you feel beautiful!

In my opinion, Essential Swimwear has accomplished that! Their suits are made with our insecurities and assets in mind! Brittney, the owner of Essential Swimwear used to hand-make the suits! She fitted hundreds of women and learned what we want and need! She no longer hand-makes the suits, but has gained tons of knowledge that makes essential swimwear truly unique!

On the site, they offer a fit guide. It will help you pick out the perfect suit for your body shape. It walks you through things to look for and what is going to make you look better! Hiding what you don't want seen, and showing off the other areas that you want people to notice! Such a great read! I learned a lot!

Essential Swimwear offers halter tops, tankini tops, and sweetheart tops. Basic bottoms, hipster bottoms, front seam bottoms, skirted bottoms, and swim skirts. There is literally something for everyone!

For my review, I picked out the Chocolate Stripe Tankini Top and the Brown Basic Bottoms.

No that's not me in the picture. I wish! :)

I 100% LOVE my suit! It is sooo comfortable! I have a huge problem trying to keep my rear end covered, but these bottoms work great. They fit securely, without cutting off my circulation.

The top is wonderful as well. I am small chested, so I am VERY picky about tops. I hate having to walk around wearing something that makes me look like a boy! This top is very flattering! It covers my little love handles and fits my chest very well. It's front lined with built-in, seamless soft cups. It doesn't get any better than that!
And because it's got the tie on and the elastic on the top, I don't have to keep pulling on it to make sure it's staying where it should! Basically, I put it on and go! No fussing and pulling here and there! I have for sure found the place I will be buying more suits from in the future!

You can also host an Essential Swimwear party! Here is a little about hosting:
