Swankini Swimsuits – Review & Giveaway – Frugal Novice

Swankini Swimsuits – Review & Giveaway

Summer is almost upon us, and ladies, you know what that means – it’s swimsuit season. For a lot of us, swimsuit shopping is something we avoid like the plague. I haven’t gone swimsuit shopping in years and had stuck faithfully to an unflattering suit because I just didn’t want to deal with trying to find a new one that would fit how I wanted it to, and hide what I wanted to hide!

Now, though? That old suit won’t see the light of day. I’ve discovered Swankini, and I’m really excited about my new swimsuit! ?Lois McCourt created the line of swimsuits after she wasn’t able to find a suit that fit and flattered her like she wanted. This swimwear all has a slimming lightweight lining, and is made from high quality fabrics. Swankini swimsuits are available in a wide range of colors and are made in the USA.

I received the LaRuche style in Onyx, with the yoga-style bottoms to review. The yoga bottoms are great, with a waistband that can be folded over or up depending on your preference. The band flattens the stomach, which is something I think most women are looking for.

The top is SO great. There’s a really snug-fitting lining that smooths , and then the outer layer of the suit skims over the bottom layer. The ruching helps camouflage, too – and the neckline with the halter top is very flattering too. I love this suit and will get a lot of use out of it! I would recommend this to anyone who wants a slimming, high quality swimsuit.

Swankini also has other styles available, in a variety of colors. Here are the other style options:

There are three options for bottoms – the yoga bottom I previously mentioned, traditional, or skirted.

One of you lucky readers will get a Swankini swimsuit of your choice (ARV $125)! This contest is open to all US residents. Entries will be accepted until the end of the day (midnight CST) Tuesday, May 31.

    I already like Frugal novice on Facebook. I love that you posted this today as I was just thinking this morning it’s about time for me to get a new suit…since I know the last time I purchased one was around 2005 :). These are great and exactly what I had in mind (particularly the LaRuche style in Onyx).

    I feel weird posting comment after comment in a row. This is my second comment to say that I blogged about the giveaway. http://childrensbookquotes.wordpress.com/2011/05/18/bonus-post/
    Thanks for doing this giveaway! These sound like really great swimsuits. I love that the manican model is not showing a size 2 suit. I hate it when swimwear that is supposed to be slimming is shown on models that need no slimming!!! Back when I was a skinny girl, I could just pick up a cheap suit at Target, Old Navy or wherever. It’s hard to reconcile spending so much on a swimsuit now, but the only other option is looking DREADFUL and engaging in a great deal of self-loathing. ;) Anyway, it would be great to win!
