Essential Swimwear Review and Giveaway CLOSED

I am pretty sure every woman on the planet dreads when swimsuit season rolls around. The pushy sales assistants, harsh lights, and overcrowded fitting rooms can make shopping a nightmare.


Luckily, EssentialSwimwear.com offers swimsuits for every body! They offer various types of tankini tops and many different types of bottoms that range from hipster bottoms to swimskirts.


I was lucky enough to be able to review one of their swimsuits and I chose the Vixen Gathered Halter  and Black Swimskirt




Upon receiving my new swimsuit, I was amazed at the suit's quality and felt confident wearing it. However, I made the mistake of sizing up thinking that these suits would run small like many other brands. But I was wrong and my suit is a size too big. If you normally take a size large (10-12) like I do then order just that size, there is no need to size up with EssentialSwimwear.com


Luckily, the folks at EssentialSwimwear.com allow you to return all unworn swimwear and exchange it for a different size! All you have to do is pay to ship it back to them and they take care of the rest. Talk about service!


If you really want to make sure you get a good fit, you can also host a party with EssentialSwimwear.com:


"For your swimsuit party, essential swimwear will ship you samples of each swimsuit style in every size (XS-XL).  During the party, you and your guests will be able to see and try on all of the samples.  Each guest will fill out an order form, which you will return with the samples after your party is over (a pre-paid return label will be included with your shipment). The party host also earns free swimwear and discounts depending on how much swimwear she sells!"


You can also win your very own EssentialSwimwear.com suit right here at Young, Free and Frugal!


Main Entry: You must follow me on Google Friend Connect (right hand side of the page) to enter.
