This summer, we've been spending a lot of time outdoors. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous, and with a fun waterpark right down the road, we have been taking full advantage of it! My kids love playing in the water, and it's a wonderful way to enjoy quality family time.
Of course with water comes the need for good swimwear. Like many women, the mere mention of swimsuit season makes me feel more than a little bit self-conscious. I have had 3 children, and my body is far from model-perfection. I am not overweight, but I do have the dreaded belly pooch that comes with having 3 c-sections, and I have stretch marks, too. It comes with the territory of motherhood, and while it's worth it, there is definitely some body-related anxiety involved.
So needless to say, when choosing swimwear, I tend to look for brands that offer slimming options that conceal my problem areas so I can look my best while hitting the pool. One company that offers some amazing options is Leonisa. This amazing brand is truly dedicated to making women look and feel their best. They offer a large selection of swimwear, both slimming and conventional, and they also carry some positively gorgeous shapewear and lingerie. There are even options for the man in your life, too!
Here are some of my favorite swimsuits from Leonisa. Prepare to drool!
My Top Leonisa Swimwear Picks :
While I would never be brave enough to wear a bikini myself, I absolutely love this bright, feminine design. The color scheme is amazing, and I like the paisley print.
This tankini is just my style. I love the red color, and the fact that this is sexy without being too revealing. As a mom, I don't want to expose too much around my kids and their friends. This is the perfect solution, since it's stylish without looking too matronly.
I also really like this ruffled monokini style. Again, I probably wouldn't be brave enough to wear it, but it's definitely super cute and flirty. This is great for the girly-girls out there who may want to show a little skin while leaving plenty to the imagination.
Aren't these styles wonderful? These are just a few of the many available options at Leonisa! They have something for every woman, regardless of taste, so you're bound to find something you love.
My Review of the Reduce a Size One Piece :
The wonderful folks at Leonisa sent me their Reduce a Size One Piece in black to try out for myself. Since I am a 36D, I ordered a large. (I wear a size 8 in clothing, to give you an idea of my size.) My swimsuit arrived very quickly, and I was immediately impressed by the quality of the fabric. This suit is made from a very soft and stretchy material, which offers a good amount of tummy control. It also has underwire, push-up contour cups and ties in the back to adjust the fit to your own personal figure.
This swimsuit slims you by 1 size instantly, since it reduces the entire torso, even the sides! It gives a smooth silhouette, and is very natural looking. I am not going to force you to look at photos of me in the suit, but here are some photos of the Reduce a Size One Piece from Leonisa. Isn't is beautiful?!
Recently, I wore this suit to our local waterpark. I was amazed when it put it on, because it really did slim me instantly! My belly pooch was non-existent, and my entire torso was pulled-in and smoothed. The suit is very comfortable, too. While it acts like some pretty powerful shapewear, it also allows you to breathe, which is always a plus. I also really like the fact that it has wide straps that don't dig into the shoulders.
We spent about 6 hours at the waterpark, and I swam, chased the kids, and went down several waterslides all day. This swimsuit didn't ride up or bunch together, and stayed in place beautifully. I did choose to wear a sarong-style skirt with it when I wasn't in the water, since I didn't want my thighs showing. Overall, I was very pleased with this swimsuit's performance. It did everything it suggests and gave me a little added confidence in a crowded waterpark. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a mini-body-makeover this summer!
