Popina Swimwear Review & Giveaway...

It seems that over the years trends
 have lead to swimwear
 consisting of less and less fabric...
A trend that can make shopping for a new swimsuit especially
 daunting for us moms. 

We want a swimsuit that
fits and flatters our figure,
that highlights our positives, 
distracting from and concealing 
our negative and problem areas...

A Swimsuit that is Not Too Skimpy & Yet Not Too Frumpy!

Am I Right?

I find myself looking at old family photos & longing for the return of the swimwear styles of the 40's and 50's.
{My Grandma in 1946}
I love the classic styles of the swimwear from that era & the fact that women could look feminine & sexy without showing too much skin.

As Luck Would Have It....
Retro-Inspired Swimsuits Might Just Be
The Hottest Trend In Swimwear This Year!!!
What does this mean?
It means....
 just might have
The Perfect Suit For You This Summer!
The Popina Retro Swimwear Boutique offers Jantzen Swimwear and Popina Vintage Swimwear Inspired styles.
What Are You Waiting For???
Go Check Them Out!
 These Are Not Your Grandma's Swimsuits!
(although, there may be some notable similarities)
Popina Swimwear Owner/Designer, Pamela Levenson creates "styles with the influence of days gone by but with the modern convenience of today’s fabric innovations and bathing suit construction."
When I received my "Grace" Swimsuit
(sent free of charge for this review) I could tell that it was a high quality suit right away and could not wait to try it on!
I can't tell you the last time I wore a one-piece swimsuit....but I absolutely love this Pin-up Style Suit!
It fits great and I just adore all the similarities to the
one my grandma wore back in 1946...The halter straps, the cute little tie in the center and the modest cut of the legs.  The swimsuit features a soft cup bra for smooth coverage and the snug fit of the elastic around the legs ensures that this suit won't ride up.
The "Grace" swimsuit is such a cute "retro-style" swimsuit that I feel really highlights Popina's special niche in swimwear.  But Popina offers a wide variety of styles so  even if you are not necessarily seeking a retro-style suit...  Popina may still have just the right suit for you.   In fact, one of my other favorite suits, The Halter Tankini Top (which could be paired with a large selection of different bottoms) had a very classic look that I would not immediately describe as retro.

So I know that you are all going to want to enter this giveaway...

  3. What is most important to me in looking for a swimsuit is like what you talked about, I look for a style that makes me feel sexy but doesn't show off too much and has a nice fit so you don't have to constantly adjust.
