How many times have you gone swimsuit shopping and walked away empty handed?
You were all set on finding that perfect suit, but then you refused to pay that astronomical price.
Or the fit was just not right. The bottom was too small. The top was uncomfortable.
For me, it is even harder to find a swimsuit that works because I choose to wear modest swimwear.
My reasoning is simple. I am a mom to five children. Four of them are boys. I want to show my sons what a modest girl wears. This does not mean that I have to dress frumpy. I choose to wear suits that cover my belly.
I am also raising a daughter. I do not allow her to wear two pieces, and the same rule applies to me. She is only five right now, but this choice has opened many healthy conversations between the two of us about choosing modesty and choosing modest clothes.
Maybe you share my beliefs. Perhaps you do not.
Whatever your reason for having a hard time finding swimwear, I am here to help!
And I am even more excited to share with you THE only four websites you will ever need to purchase swimwear.
But before we get to that, let me clear up one question you may already have: I bet I already know what you are thinking.
How am I going to purchase swimwear online?
First, you are going to order your suits in advance before summer. By planning ahead, you will have time to try several and return the ones you do not like. And possibly, order some more and maybe return again.
This sounds like more of a pain than it really is.
There are so many advantages to buying swimwear online.
First, there is much more variety online. You will find hundreds more swimsuits from stores online than you will actually in the physical store itself.
Another reason it is easier to buy online is that there are more sizes readily available. You are almost guaranteed to find your size online where at a store you are gambling that they will happen to have your size.
Finally, you can read reviews. You can see what aspects of this swimsuit worked for others and decide if you think this suit will be a good pick for you by reading what other shoppers have experienced with the product.
I am going to make this much easier by showing you some top picks for summer.
LIME RICKI SWIMWEAR
Let’s start with the best way to shop on Lime Ricki.
I browse through the Tankini Tops first. I place all the ones I love in my cart.
I then browse through matching bottoms and styles that I like.
Then, it all comes together like a puzzle when you find the perfect tankini top and bottom.
My favorite combinations:
I have fallen in love with one piece swimsuits. They hold the tummy in and feel great. They are super comfortable, provide coverage, and allow me to be active on the beach with my kids.
My favorite Lime Ricki one piece is this Zippered Ivy One-Piece.
Love what you see?
