Essential Swimwear Review & Giveaway



We have a hot tub so I always need a bathing suit. They aren't just for summer here at my house. Because Jon is a disabled veteran I would say that we get in the hot tub close to 4 times a week. It's relaxing and we really enjoy it. So that means I need quite a few bathing suits!

I was sent a GORGEOUS Swimsuit from Essential Swimwear and I really like it!

 Looks like I have  a mirror to clean... Whew!!

I enjoy this swimsuit, however it was kind of small and tight on me and when we got out of the hot tub I had a LOT of trouble getting it off. Because it was so wet and tight it was stuck to me. Jon had to help so it was definitely a 2 person job.
I would wear this suit if I were going to the beach or something and not actually planning on swimming, but to actually get wet in it is a big no-no. 

I received the Starry Night gathered halter top with the White Hipster bottoms. Just like normal I got a medium top and a small bottom. Bottoms fit, but I should've got a large top. 
Other than that I enjoy this suit and thankfully it didn't shrink when I washed it. 

They have plenty of other cute tops, like this one
and this one
Price: The tops are $32.99 and the bottoms are $18.99. They also have skirted bottoms for $24.99 and skirts for $19.99! Pretty generous prices, except I can get a whole suit for about $33, but these aren't bad

Overall: **** I should've ordered a large, but other than that these are fine!

 *Disclaimer* I received these products directly from the Company for Review. I was not paid to try out these products!*
