I'm emailing you now! Congrats!

I know, it's the end of September, so a slightly strange time to be doing a swimwear review and giveaway, but it'll be a good thing for you all! Keep reading to find out why.

Since I hit my mid-teenage years, I've been a fairly curvy woman.  Particularly my top half.  This situation has only been made worse by having two children.  Buying bathing suits was challenging even pre-kids, even when I was 30 pounds thinner, as I tried to find suits that looked nice and that kept me decently covered.  Now that I've got baby weight and stretch marks and such to deal with, swimsuit shopping is nearly impossible.  The other challenge I have had is finding a suit that can stand up to a mom's active life- we can't have any of those flimsy suits with tie on tops- that's just not going to work!

Then I found out about the SlimPerfect swimsuits and was very intrigued. SlimPerfect makes suits that are versatile and can be worn at the pool, gym or beach. I love multipurpose items!  And they're cute too!

The nice people at SlimPerfect sent me a gift certificate to choose some swim items to review. Thanks to the GREAT sale they have going on right now, I was able to get several pieces to mix and match.

I got the tankini top, which I especially liked (no, this isn't me in the photos) since I'm not terribly happy with my mid-section (two pregnancies and two c-sections in 2 years does not leave your midsection in good shape!).  The tankini is cute, with nice, substantial straps, removable gel-filled bra cups, and a tummy tamer (my favorite part).  Thanks to the great sale, I was able to get tankini tops in several colors.



To go with the tankini tops, I also ordered a  SlimSkort. I liked the idea of having my thighs covered (can't blame that on the kids, but the cake I ate while pregnant with the kids).  The skort has a nice cute black skirt with bike short style shorts underneath. And it has great tummy control! So necessary with a post c-section tummy!



I was so excited to try on my new swimwear when it arrived, and I was not disappointed! The tummy tamer in both the top and bottom worked well, I looked so much thinner that I hated to take it off and put back on my regular clothes. I felt comfortable and well-covered in the both the top and bottom, but not in a restrictive way.  I will definitely still be able to chase the kids in this, but now I wont be worrying about my bosoms falling out of my top while I run around. The gel-filled cups did have to come out of my top immediately, but that was easy. I can see that those would be great if you need a little help up top.  I can hardly wait to take my swimsuit to a pool to test it out! We're planning a trip to the local indoor waterpark later this year and I can hardly wait to wear the suits then!
SlimPerfect carries mix and match pieces, like the tankini and the slimskort, as well as bikini tops and slimskirts. They also have nice one-piece slimdresses which are also really cute.  And right now, prices on the items are great, as low as $17.90 (for the bikini top).  Go check out their sale!

One of you will get to try out some of these too! SlimPerfect is offering one of you a $50 gift certificate! This will buy you a nice new swimsuit, so go enter! (You will need to pay shipping and handling on the items you buy, but it's not at all expensive). Giveaway open to US/Canadian mailing addresses only. I'll take entries until 9 PM PST on October 17, 2009. Winner will be chosen by random.org and will have 48 hours to respond to my email.

To enter:
1) Go visit SlimPerfect and come back and leave me a comment letting me know what you like best. Be sure to include your email address in your comment unless it's visible in your profile.
