Essential Swimwear Review and Giveaway

If you remember last year, I introduced you to a new swimwear company, Essential Swimwear. I absolutely LOVED by suit I received last year, that I bought another one...and my sister bought three before we went to Hawaii. I was so excited that Brittney wanted to work with us again. I just LOVE Brittney's story...

After becoming thoroughly discouraged every season as I searched for the perfect swimsuit, I decided  that it didn't exist.  I was frustrated with expensive prices, wrong fits and the hassle of searching online for hours.  Having some sewing experience, the thought came to mind, "Why don't I make my own swimsuit?"
After a lot of trial and error, I was finally able to sew swimsuits that were comfortable, stylish and flattering.  I began making swimsuits for friends and family and soon the word started spreading.
I sold hand-sewn women's swimsuits in 2008 and 2009 and received an overwhelmingly positive response.  I gained priceless knowledge as I personally fit hundreds of women.  I was able to discover their needs, wants and insecurities.  With this knowledge I was able to design a line of swimsuits for the 2010 season.  For 2011, I have continued to improve upon previous designs and offer new styles and sizes that I'm very excited about.
To increase the quality and keep up with demand I no longer hand-make the swimsuits, but am able to offer styles, designs and a price point that fits the needs of women.

Essential Swimwear has really great suits to choose from, with really fun designs and styles. This year I was lucky enough to review the Watermelon Twist Front Top with the White High Waist Bottoms. I LOVE this suit. the ruching down the sides is perfect for everyone. Having three kids, my body isn't what it used to be. I feel like I need something to make me look a little skinnier...and this top does just that! With the bottoms, I can leave it high when I am feeling not so good...or roll it down. I was worried about the bottoms being see through...but they are not at all!

Essential Swimwear also has swim skirts and board shorts...so be sure to check those at as well!  They are perfect for us Mom's that are chasing our kids around the pool! Also, if you get the Twist Front Top, it can be worn four different ways! Perfect to change your suit and your tan line up a bit!

What I really love about Essential Swimwear is the prices. They aren't going to break the bank!! So you can afford to buy a couple! Plus the shipping is only $4.00 on you order!!!
Be sure to check out the suits from 2010...they are 40% off...I have the Ebony Halter and the Chocolate Stripe Tankini. LOVE them both.
