In my last post I wrote about shopping online for bathing suits. I promised I would provide an update once I received the suits and tried them on.
Recap: I ordered three suits from Amazon. The manufacturer is Cocoship.
The price of each of the suites was around $24.00.
A general opinion about all three.
Quality: I would rate the quality of the suits as fair. If, like me, you are going to be using these in a chlorine filtered pool, the suits are most likely only going to be one season suits. They were worth the $24.00.
Fit: Personally they were true to a size I would normally wear. The material is soft and silky. I felt comfortable in the suits.
Vanity: Since not one of the three invisible models shown below have an ounce of fat, and I have more than an ounce, and since their curves are all in the right places and mine have shifted somewhat, I have to say the suits were more flattering to their figures than they were to mine. :)
|Suit No. 1|
I liked the cut of the “boy short" style bottoms.
The top’s peek-a-boo cut out was too revealing for my taste.
|Suit No. 2|
I would give suit No. 2 ☆☆☆ out of 5.
This is the suit I was hoping would have been the one for me. It wasn’t.
Because the bottoms have a high waist line and shirring, the style does hide certain problem areas, mainly stomach.
However the top, again was too revealing for my taste.
|Suit No. 3|
I would give suit No. 3 ☆☆☆☆ out of 5.
It’s the one I will keep.
First, I like the vintage style cherry pattern of the fabric.
The waist is shirred, which is a great concealer.
The top is modest enough for my taste.
I have already worn this to water aerobics and I felt comfortable.
By the way, Ross thought I looked great in all three.
But, I made him take photos of me wearing each of the suits, front, side and back.
Ross, you are sweet. And I especially am grateful that your eyes are aging more gracefully than I am.
Now I just have to figure out how to return the other two suits.
