Alright girls, it’s officially swimsuit time. I dread this time of year EVERY year. However, I live in Texas where’s it is HOT. So, it’s either wear a swimsuit or hibernate from June – October. No joke. It’s hot here. Anyway, I am not her to tell you how to not dread it, but I am here to tell you about a place where I’ve had some swimsuit luck. That’s right. I have found swimsuits you will not dread wearing. #theholygrailofswimsuits
So, a couple of years ago I found this little online shop. I’m sure I found it from some Pinterest picture. I really did love the suit and I took a leap of faith and ordered it. Let me first tell you, I am not affiliated in any way with this company. I am just sharing the luck I’ve had. So, they are called Divine Modestee. The idea is that you can wear a cute, fashionable swimsuit that does not have to be revealing. Now although, they want you to be modest, I am just concerned with keeping certain parts covered out of sheer vanity. After all, no one wants or needs to see that! Plus, I do feel like after a certain age, it’s not appropriate to wear some things. Do you think that’s just because I can’t pull them off? ha!
Anyway, I ordered this suit.
It looks just like this on me. It looks nothing like this on me. #notamodel However, I still love it. Did I just say love about a swimsuit?
The top has plenty of ruching. Gotta love ruching. It disguises stuff well. 🙂 The bottoms are mid-rise,so not too skimpy, but not total granny panties either. Overall, I think it’s cute, it covers, and it’s not frumpy. The fabric is thick so it wears well and does not become see-through when wet. Also, the top is lined. It’s not the cheapest suit, but it’s not the most expensive by far. The bottoms are about $32 and the top is $78. However, right now you can save 10% when you buy tops and bottoms together. I have to say, I love a two piece suit for the ease of getting it on and off ~ especially if you have to take a potty break while it’s wet. Have you ever tried to peel off a one piece when wet? #thestruggleisreal
So, now that’s it’s been a couple of years with this suit, I decided to get a new one this year. Here are a few pieces I’ve got my eye on.
Again, ruching on the top and the halter style is flattering on most women.
I love this print! These stripes are small enough that it almost reads as a solid. I don’t think we have to worry about the horizontal stripes. Also, I really like the vertical ruching at the top. If you’d like to add to that area, this would give you the illusion of a fuller bust. I say, the fuller the bust, the smaller the waist… Plus the little ruffle at the bottom is cute too.
So, I think this is a pic of a bikini bottom. I, of course, would not order bikinis. Rather, I would go for a mid-rise. However, I do love the bright print. Would it keep the eye moving so that it doesn’t settle on an unwanted area? Best to keep the eye moving.
Here’s the mid-rise bottoms. I have never done a floral print like this, but I kind of dig this. I wonder how it would look across your back end? Anyone ever tried a print like this? It looks great on the model, so how could it look bad on me? ha ha.
I really love this print!
There are tons more on their site. It’s awesome because you can mix and match tops and bottoms ~ customize the size of each. They have skirted bottoms too if you like those. You can also mix and match prints, which I think is a super-cute look.
Okay girls, I hope this post is helpful. I know swimsuit season is stressful, maybe this made it a little easier. If you do decide to give them a try, I hope you’ll let me know what you think. I want you to love it like I do. Well, at least as much as you can love a swimsuit!
Until next time~
