Like ninety-nine percent of the women in the world, I don’t much care for swimsuit shopping. Considering the fact that I’ve given birth to two children (one less than half a year ago), I am actually fairly pleased with my body. But the unforgiving and often nonfunctional styles of traditional swimwear means that finding a swimsuit takes at least a few hours of searching and often fails to satisfy my needs even then.
SlimPerfect, a company that offers flattering swimsuits and activewear, claimed that they could solve my problems. Their separates collection is designed to compliment every body type, provide more coverage and disguise unsightly bulges without shifting them to other areas. Needless to say, I was delighted when I was given a chance to review their swimsuits.
My previous swimsuit was a white halter-top and bikini bottom. I am fairly happy with my upper body, so when I added a white skirt as a cover-up, I did like how I looked. However, the swimsuit created two insolvable problems for me. First, I inevitably had to face a moment of total self-consciousness and discomfort as I took off my skirt and sprinted for the water, hoping all the time that nobody was looking at my jiggling thighs. And second, I continually had to check my movements both while swimming and while playing with my son for fear of accidentally flopping out of the halter-top. As the mother of an active preschooler, I had neither the interest nor the time to sit and look pretty on the beach. What I needed was comfortable mobility. I had a real problem.
Enter SlimPerfect and their revolutionary swimwear. I reviewed the Bikini Top in black and white and the SlimSkirt in black. These two pieces effortlessly solved every problem I have ever had with traditional swimwear and then some. The Bikini Top features elasticized armbands and a wide band below the chest as well as properly supportive shoulder straps. A mesh panel in front adds a little additional coverage. This is the first swimsuit top I have ever worn that both gives me proper support and ensures that my chest will stay covered no matter how active I am. The removable gel-filled bra cups offer a little extra oomph for women that want it, and the pockets that hold them are also appropriate for post mastectomy forms.
The SlimSkirt is another dream come true for me. The traditional swimsuit bikini bottom is incorporated into a sleek black skirt with a slimming flat panel in front that helps to minimize the stomach. Wearing it means that the lack of confidence I feel when I take off my skirt is a thing of the past. Now when I run for the water, my skirt comes with me and my thighs are covered!
I also reviewed the SlimDress in white and light green. It features the exact same benefits as the Bikini Top and SlimSkirt with more complete coverage that includes a taming panel around the stomach and bike shorts instead of briefs under the skirt. The SlimDress is a SlimPerfect favorite, and it’s not hard to see why. This dress is way too cute to save for the pool, and I am eagerly looking forward to warmer days so that I can wear it out around town. With its sleek, summery style and comfortable coverage, it’s the perfect dress for any occasion. I love knowing that if I have to suddenly chase down a small child, I won’t accidentally show off too much skin to anyone behind me.
SlimPerfect also offers tankinis, sleeved tankinis, and sleeved SlimDresses so that every woman is sure to find a look that’s perfect for them. With summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to shrug off swimsuit fears and experience the many great benefits a SlimPerfect swimsuit can offer. For every conceivable bathing suit woe, SlimPerfect has a solution that is fun, fresh and fashionable so that every woman can look and feel her best!
