I know that I am not the only one that will spend hours trying on swimsuits only to wind up leaving a store with nothing. Last time I went to the mall to find a swimsuit I left empty handed after trying on at least 50 swimsuits and deciding against over 100. While they would normally be my size, they would make things that aren't my best features look even worse. After having 2 kids anything that makes these features worse is just not something I even want to think about, let alone wear. Sure I could spend a good $400 on a swimsuit that fits, but I would be settling for a design I do not like and doesn't make me feel any better about myself.
That's when I found Spanx. Spanx has a lot of different products that will help you look great, and make you feel great too. I received their Blue Nile Bra-llelujah Swim Dress to review for you. I was a little worried about ordering a swimsuit online, not only because of size issues, but because of how different products are then in their pictures. When I received my Swim Dress I couldn't have been happier. It was beautiful! Sure it looks pretty in the picture, but the picture just does not do it justice! Normally swimsuits are too thick, whether it is in the padding, or even just the swimsuit itself. This swimsuit is perfect. It's very hard for me to find a bathing suit that fits my stomach, my butt, and my chest. I wear a 36 DDD/F in most bras, while I am a 38DD in others. So finding a swimsuit that can keep everything contained is a little difficult, at least not without it being too big somewhere else.
I absolutely love this swimsuit and all the sizing options they come in. I was able to choose a 16 D/DD which was pretty exciting to be because normally you can't choose both a bra size and an actually swimsuit size. I guess that is why they call it a "Bra-llelujah" swim dress. Another reason I think they call it this is because it has a bra attached to it. Yes, an actual bra, under-wire and all. Best part was that it fit! It took me a minute to get the suit over my hips, but once that part was over it went on easily and immediately made my body look a little more slim. I felt like I had lost 10 lbs just by putting on a swimsuit.
This swimsuit also has tie strings on each side. Why you ask? You can wear this swimsuit as a medium length dress (about mid thigh), or you can wear it high up like in the picture below. I love that I don't have to change out of my swimsuit just to feel comfortable. I can just pull it down a little and I feel like I am wearing a normal summer dress.
It is extremely comfortable, in fact it is the most comfortable swimsuit I have ever put on. I love that this swimsuit makes me feel and look great, which is so hard to find! It helps make everything that needs help on my body look so much better. This is my new favorite swimsuit, as well as my new favorite dress. If you are looking for a new swimsuit I would definitely try looking at Spanx Swimsuits. They have so many different styles and designs that will not only fit your style, but will fit your body.
