Summer is here and, contrary to many people’s beliefs, I think it’s here to stay for a while. Thank goodness! You may think the time to buy a new swimsuit is over BUT think of all the pool parties, Labor Day Weekend celebrations and inevitable Christmas vacations still to happen this year. For me, I approached buying new swimsuits this season in the most economical way I could think, Amazon! I have seen so many bloggers I follow buy and do try-on hauls with some amazing Amazon finds, so I wanted to see for myself what all the hype was about. The best part about ordering from Amazon (especially with being a Prime member) is that I ordered my three new suits on Monday April 15 and, I’m not joking, they were on my doorstep Wednesday April 17th early in the morning. It was so fast; I was already super impressed. Off to a great start!
Below are the three swimsuits I ordered! I thought since consumers are still so skeptical about ordering clothes from Amazon, it would be beneficial, for anyone considering, to provide my honest review of the three pieces I bought. Read on as I rated all three on a scale of 1-5.
The first one I tried on was the gingham print, two-piece. The quality felt alright to the touch, but when I started to put on the bottoms, I heard the elastic stretch what sounded like a little farther than it should. I was so nervous that I had ordered the wrong size, a size too small. After putting the whole swimsuit on, I didn’t mind the fit of it, but it was far from perfect. The bottoms fit like a glove, slightly cheekier than I am comfortable with, but the top is what was really weird for me. The straps felt way too loose even after tightening them all the way, and I felt like I could lose the girls at any moment, if you know what I mean. On a scale of 1-5, I would rate this one a 2. Don’t spend your hard-earned money here.
The next one I tried one was the red, white and blue, pom pom two-piece. I cannot rave enough about this suit!! The fit is absolutely perfect, the colors are so cute, and I love the pom poms as a fun touch. The high-waisted bottoms hit in exactly the right spot on my stomach to cinch in my waist giving the perfect hourglass affect, and the top is adjustable to completely fit your needs. I ordered my true size, and it was 100% true to size. It is all around a GREAT swimsuit. I was actually so mad that I only ordered this suit in one color. I will definitely be going back to order at least two more of the different prints in this exact style. On a scale of 1-5, this one was a 5!
Last but not least, was the pink and green leaf print one piece. Another great find if I do say so myself! Not only is the print so colorful and poppy, which is great for Summer or a tropical vacation, it also fit me perfectly. Again, on this one I ordered my regular size and it was true to size. I also loved this one because it has the same appearance of a bodysuit, which would make it great to pair with jean shorts or a skirt to wear out (I did this already, as seen above). The straps are adjustable, and the quality feels like a typical Target swimsuit which is where I normally buy my swimsuits from. This one was hands down my favorite so on a scale of 1-5, I would give this one a 10!
For my first-time buying swimsuits on Amazon, I was pretty happy with my purchases. Two out of three were complete successes and made me want to be a repeat customer. If you are considering buying a swimsuit from Amazon, I highly recommend doing your research, reading reviews and studying the size chart. It can be a little daunting since there are so many options and you don’t get to physically try a piece on, but I hope this post gives you the confidence to take the leap. I am definitely looking forward to wearing these swimmies for the rest of Summer!
