Albion Swimsuit Review and $100 Giveaway


First, this a lovely and wonderfully comfortable bathing suit from Albion Fit that I am absolutely in love with.

Second...

Goosh.

That is a photo of me.

That is a photo of me in a swimsuit.

That is a photo of me in a swimsuit that I am actually posting.

Give me a moment to freak out in my head.

(aaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...gasp...gasp...aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....head between my knees...deep breaths....aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh)

Thanks for giving me a moment.

For those of you who know me, you know this is a Hell freezing over kind of situation.

Which is why I would only trust my very close, very talented photographer friend Lisa of Lisa Hansen Photography to snap my bathing suit photos. When I called her in hysterics, she immediately obliged. I am so very grateful she lent me her talents.

Now that I have gotten over the shock of showing the world me in a bathing suit, let me tell you about this swimsuit and why I am willing to break my cardinal law (being photographed in a swimsuit).

Albion Fit contacted me and asked me if I would like to review one of their swimsuits. In under 3 seconds of looking at their site I was eagerly typing them back with an ecstatic "YES".

I ultimately picked the Criss Cross Suit because of its vintage feel. I have also wanted a classic black suit for awhile.

I was a little nervous after I picked it because I have not worn a one piece in over a decade. I have stuck strictly to tankinis for the very simple reason that prior to this whenever I have tried a one piece it looked horrible. They would cut me off all funny. I would feel like I had to walk all hunchback to make it fit. Basically, for whatever reason I would always look like a sad and unfortunate oompa loompa.

Not normally the look one goes for on the beach.

Well, who knew that was because I had been trying on sub par cheapo suits?!!??

As soon as I slipped the Criss Cross Suit on from Albion Fit, I actually said out loud, "Well this is how a swimsuit is supposed to fit. Glory be."

Yes I did actually say GLORY BE...just ask Hubby.

I can not fully explain how comfortable and supportive this suit is.

To. Die. For.

I am now fully confident that if I jump off the diving board in my normal graceful fashion I will neither a) get a wedgie or b) come out of the top.

Besides the comfort and support of the suit, it really is rather lovely.

Like I said earlier, it is a classic and vintage looking suit. I am in love with the neck line. LOVE I tell you.

The gathering in the front adds a great detail AND if you have had a few...say like four...kids the added bonus of the gathers is that it helps disguise any deflated balloon belly.

Speaking of my kids, this suit is the perfect suit for a day trip to the pool. I can lounge and look like a carefree movie star for the 60 seconds my boys will let me. Then when the monkeys realize they are free from their cage, the suit will keep up with all the carrying, saving, and being climbed upon that having four monkeys entails.

Best. Suit. Ever.

Now Albion doesn't just make suits. They also make a pretty rockin' line of athletic wear for women that I can't wait to try!

So now on to the best part.
