SwimSpot {Review & Giveaway}

The weather here has been beautiful lately! It’s officially Spring and that means Summer is a whole lot closer then you think. We have a big family vacation to Idaho planned for the end of June through the 4th of July and I was chatting with a friend the other day who mentioned there are only 10 more weeks until our trip! That time is going to fly by with all the stuff we have on our calendar. I know I’ve been working out like crazy, losing weight and getting ready for swimsuit season. So I celebrated my weight loss with a new swimsuit! If you want to look your absolute best this summer let SwimSpot help you find what you need!

swimspot

SwimSpot is the #1 online swimwear boutique, featuring designer swimwear including: Tommy Hilfiger, Guess, Luxe by Lisa Vogel, Hurley, Hurley Girl, Reef, Athena, Ella Moss, Splendid and much more! I was seriously impressed by the number of choices they had online! You’ll hear me say time and time again that I’m not particularly fond of buying clothes or shoes online because it doesn’t give me the freedom to try it on before I purchase it however when it comes to Swimwear I have a really hard time finding what I want in the stores and the time spent shopping just frustrates me. SwimSpot however did a great job reassuring me that I’d be happy with what I purchased online and if I wasn’t their FREE shipping, FREE returns and FREE exchanges policy was the seller for me!

Fit Specialist Program:

SwimSpot has a great team of Fit Specialists that will do all they can to get you in the prefect fitting one piece suit for your body type and needs. You can call customer service at 1-877-684-7946 or email fitspecialist@swimspot.com and connect with a Fit Specialist to schedule a “fit” appointment. They will provide you with the best style, brand and fit recommendations for your body type.

Bikini Builder Application:

For those of you looking for a two piece suite they have a great Bikini Builder Application online where you can put different tops and bottoms together to see what they look like before your purchase, the possibilities are practically endless! (The Hurley brand alone has over 550 different combination options.)

These two options alone set them apart from any other online swimwear company out there, in my opinion!

My swimsuit pick was the Athena- Lagoon One Piece Swimdress in Pink – retail $99.00.

Whenever I start swimsuit shopping I always look for the suits that have some sort of slim-power built in because my tummy/abdomen area is the area I’d like to conceal after having had three kids. Most suites I’ve considered purchasing have been in the price range of this one so I was happy to see that their cost was comparable. Some of you might think that $100 for a swimsuit is just a little too much but I’m much more willing to spend that kind of money on a high quality swimsuit that fits my body, accentuates my better features, conceals my not so great areas, is made of high quality material and makes me feel great wearing it! I also usually keep my swimsuits for more then one summer and wear them for a few years before replacing (unless I need a size change) so the justification in spending this much on a suit was easy. By the way I have to mention that my favorite part of SwimSpot is that they have so many search options to narrow down your suit choice. My favorite was body type, which most sites have when it comes to swimwear however they definitely had the most options I’ve ever seen for body types which I loved because I don’t typically find that I fit into one of the pear or hourglass or full bust categories that you typical see.

I love the pink color with swirl print and 1950’s retro style print feel on this Athena One Piece Swim Dress. I also love how the little skirt at the bottom helps me feel more modest and confident in this swimsuit. This slimming swimsuit has molded soft cups, detachable swim strap, key-hole back detailing, and a twist front feature.

At first I was a little hesitant to order the size I did because I’ve been loosing weight and the smaller sized suit was out of stock. SwimSpot customer service did an awesome job trying to help me locate the information as to when the size I wanted might be available. However we did find out that they wouldn’t be getting any more of that size in stock for this season but I was encouraged to keep checking back with them in case someone made a return. I really wanted this swimsuit so I was a little disappointed but I made the decision to get the bigger size knowing that if it didn’t work out they had a great return policy. I’ll admit that I should have looked better at the sizing chart because the bust, hips and waist measurement numbers were a little different then the swimsuit I’ve been wearing for the last few years. So I was happy to say that when my swimsuit arrived it fit nicely. It was a little tight in some areas but with a little more work on my diet it’ll look great once swimsuit season actually gets here. (Having this swimsuit hanging in my closet will be a great motivation to me to keep up all my hard work at the gym.)

SwimSpot not only offers a wide selection of women’s swimwear but they also carry a few really cute little girls swimsuits by Hurley Girl that I’ve been considering purchasing for my girls who are quickly growing out of their old suits.
