Summer will officially be here in just a few days! One of the things that our family looks forward to most about the summer is cooling off in the swimming pool or at the lake. For many women, finding the perfect swimsuit can be not only challenging but stressful as well.
Let me tell you my story/struggle in searching for the perfect swimsuit – maybe you can relate. First off, I prefer to dress modestly, so I started shopping for a one piece. I don’t know about you, but every one piece swimsuit I put on made my small-busted body look shapeless. I also hate the high cut around my thighs and butt. Then I moved onto shopping tankinis, but I had a similar problem with the tops – all boob squishers – and mine needed all the help they could get! (I’m not kidding, if I’m not pregnant or nursing a baby, I’m lucky to be an AA cup size!) So then I looked at bikinis. I was able to get one size for my bottoms and a different size for the top that actually flattered my figure. Finally I had a swimsuit that fit my body BUT the modesty was gone. Last summer, I reluctantly went back to my boob squishing tankini and boy shorts, but hated how I looked in them. There really didn’t seem to be any good solution….until now! Let me introduce you to the ModKini!
ModKini is a brand new, patent pending swimwear attachment that transforms a bikini into a tankini. With ModKini, a woman can customize her swimsuit for a better fit, more coverage, flexibility, different styles and options. To put it simply, the ModKini can help you feel more comfortable for the swimsuit season!
Now, as many of you probably remember, I’m currently 39 weeks pregnant. Have you ever looked at the cost of maternity swimwear? OUCH! I wasn’t even remotely fond of any that I’ve seen, so I was just planning to skip the pool this summer. The ModKini was not designed (necessarily) with pregnant moms in mind, but after talking with the creator of ModKini, we agreed it could be a great solution for the pregnant mom. Since I know many of you are not pregnant, I also enlisted the help of my younger sister, Janice, for this review.
Here we are in our bikinis. Let’s talk about size really quick. My sister, as you can tell, is pretty thin (high metabolism runs in the family). She wears size 0 or 00 pants and a size XS top. When I’m not pregnant (and a few months postpartum, after loosing the baby weight) I wear a 0 or 2 size pants and a size small top. At 38.5 weeks pregnant (like I was in these pictures) I’m wearing size S maternity pants and size M maternity tops. Below are our after ModKini pictures: my sister is wearing an XXS Modkini, and I’m wearing a size L.
Attaching the ModKini was really very simply. There is a very easy-t0-follow instructional video on the website which will walk you through attaching it to your bikini. My sister and I were able to get our swimsuits on in less than 5 minutes. Essentially, you will attach your bikini at the back first, then attach it to the flaps that cover your breasts. Once attached, it looks like the ModKini was designed as part of your swimwear.
I’m extremely happy with the ModKini and my sister is too. Janice is excited to be able to change the look of her suit, while also having a more modest option when she needs it. I finally have that modest look I’ve been wanting, yet one that still allows me to feel feminine and shapely. I was able to transform my regular bikini into maternity swimwear, without spending a fortune on an entirely new suit. After my baby comes, I can size down in the ModKini to cover my tummy as it’s slowly returning to it’s pre-baby state. The ModKini is so simple and practical, I’m left wondering why someone didn’t invent it sooner!
