Essential Swimwear Review, Discount Code & Giveaway *CLOSED*



Summer is coming, whether we think it is or not. We've had 3 nice days in the past 2 months, but I'm still not totally convinced. However, when it does decided to show it's sunny face I'll be ready thanks to Essential Swimwear.

You might remember my Review on them last year where I reviewed the Starry Night Gathered Halter in a Medium and the White Hipster Bottoms in a Small.
Well they were a bit small on me. Hard to get off especially when wet. I did use it last summer to go swimming with. As long as I dried off well afterwards then I was fine getting it off.

This Time I was sent the Watermelon Twist Front Top and the White Hipster Bottoms again. I got a Large in the top and a Medium on the bottom. it fits so much better. There's also room so I think it will fit my belly too since I'll only be about 24 weeks at the end of August when the summer is dying down!!


In the back you can either do Halter, Criss Cross (as shown) Or regular straps! It's cool that it's convertible like that, although Halter will probably be worn most often by me. It's the easiest to tie too. 

I like the twist in the front. It's really cure. And the gathers at the sides are perfect for my belly to be growing! I probably could have gotten away with a Medium on the top, but I'm happy it's a bit large for that reason. 

I can't wait to use it this summer AND use it in the hot tub next winter (after baby's born)

They have lots of styles to choose from and lots of new styles as well. Some cute things and the bottoms I received are only on sale for $11.39 right now!!!

According to their sizing I'd be a Medium all around, but that medium from last year does not fit me very well and the medium bottoms this time are a bit big. But this medium top would fit better. It's hard to determine! But based on their size I SHOULD be a Medium!

Price: Some bottoms are $11.39. The tops are about $35.99. Still worth it. They're great quality!

Overall: ***** My suit from last year has held up well. 

 Discount Code MOMMY10 will give you 10% off until May 21st
