A couple of weeks ago, I received an opportunity to review a product from Albion Fit. The choice was mine, so I decided to go with the ‘Show Stopper, Black and White' swimsuit. I'm going on a memorial day weekend house boat trip with a large group of people, so I figured that a new swimsuit would be a great choice. I'm so excited about the trip, and I was even more excited about this review proposal. Perfect timing indeed. They were very prompt with shipping, and the swimsuit was sitting on my doorstep within a couple of days.
Flirty and fun, this striped suit makes a bold statement even as it flatters. There’s no hiding in this little number but no need to be shy either. Featuring a sweetheart neckline and a bright sash to tie at the side, back, or front, feel longer and leaner and confident as you make your appearance. Contrasting wide straps, criss-cross at back to complete the look with an added pop. Fully lined, with a built in shelf bra (and removable cups), this suit is perfect for being active in the water or laying out and soaking in the rays. 90/10 nylon spandex, wash after use in cold water and lay flat to dry.
My first impression was, “Wow, this swimsuit is equally as beautiful in person as it is online!” As we all know, pictures can be deceiving online, but the red was just as vibrant. I love anything retro or vintage-esque, which explains why this swimsuit had caught my eye in the first place. It sort of put me in the mind of the first Barbie doll circa 1959.
But I’m also drawn to neutral colors paired with a special pop of color.
Clearly, I must have something for black, white, and red.
The material of the swimsuit definitely has that triple S threat; silky, soft, and smooth. It’s blatantly obvious that this company pays close attention to detail, so you can rest assured that you’ll get what you pay for.
I apologize for the lack of better pictures!
I’m absolutely in love with the way that this swimsuit fits and feels. It’s extremely comfortable, and I don’t feel the urge to constantly adjust myself as I have with many of my suits from the past. I have excess skin on my belly from my weight loss, and this swimsuit hides it very well. Plus, I also like the freedom of tying the red sash any which way you please! It’s my favorite aspect of the swimsuit! I think that this swimsuit would work well on so many different shapes and sizes. It’s classy, yet modern.
