This momma does not like shopping for swimwear. Yuck. Every year, the same ol’ same ol’. I need different sizes on the bottom than on the top. The cup runneth over (if you know what I mean) on every single suit I put on. The suits that look chic on smaller women look down right skanky on me. If I go in the ocean I end up flashing the entire beach my big bazoongas when the tops fly off or up. And after one summer of jacuzzis and pool-time, the suits are pilly, stretched out and done for. Sound familiar?
Well this year, I couldn’t me more excited to have found Albion-a great site for women’s fitness and swimwear–plus the fact that vintage swimsuit styles are in style right now is really working for me. I got size XL. At first I didn’t think they were going to fit and I had to wiggle a little to get the suits on–but once they were on they fit SO well–and they actually HOLD ME IN. I think that because they also make workout clothing, the suits are more substantial and durable than other suits I have. I’m also stoked the the straps are adjustable. Makes a big difference. The styles that I got make me feel good about myself-I feel like they highlight my (hem-hem) assets and distract from the parts of my body that I feel more self-conscious about. I can’t believe it’s only June 1st and I’ve already solved my summer swimsuit conundrum. That’s a first.
Albion has been kind enough to offer y’all $15 off of any purchase of $50 or more. The code is justina15 and it’s valid through 6/3.
