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.
