So you know how much I'm all for not only wearing clothing that flatters your figure, but also bathing suits! A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend a showing of a swimsuit line that keeps our figures in mind throughout the entire design process. The name of the line is called Swimtarte. Of course I was interested to learn more and view the collection, since it corresponds to what I sincerely believe and flows with the natural content of my blog.
Since I was able to attend the showing, I of course was able to touch, feel, and even try on the swimsuits and can boldly say that they're of great quality, which is super important with a swimsuit because of the effect salt and chlorine can have on a poorly made suit. I actually purchased an expensive and designer brand, which would automatically make one assume that it would be of great quality, and the bathing suit bottom actually got ruined after one wear at the beach! I still have the top and as I feel it, it's obvious as to why it got ruined and stretched out so easily, the fabric was not of great quality.
Another reason I took an interest to Swimtarte is because the pieces are made in NYC! I mean, how often do you come across a line that's not only made in the U.S., but also in NYC?! Sadly to say, not very often. So not only are they making great swimsuits, they're providing New Yorkers with job opportunities, which I think is pretty awesome!
Take a look at some of their pieces that I particularly love:
Ruby Ruffle Top (I LOVE THIS FOR PEAR SHAPES!):
Isabel Twist Top (I have this one in their solid purple and red strap, love!):
Eva Triangle Top:
Bonbon One Piece (I lOVE THIS FOR INVERTED TRIANGLES):
