Swimsuit shopping is the worst. There’s no getting around the fact that you have to try on hundreds of swimsuits to find just one or two that make you feel great, are worth the cost, and are well made. In fact, you could say it’s like dating. You have to kiss (or try on, in this case) a lot of frogs before you find a “prince.” It’s even more frustrating when you’re looking for cute swimsuits that will work with a body type not found on the catwalk at Miami Swim Week.
Because of all the above, I’ve never been a huge fan of shopping for swimsuits online. Don’t get me wrong, I always do it, but that’s because most in-store options don’t fit my taste or body. When I was looking at Snapper Rock’s new women’s swimsuit collection, I was nervous about my choices. I have a larger chest, so tops are extra difficult to size from a computer screen. Plus, I wasn’t sure it was really my style. Snapper Rock has a classic nautical aesthetic, which fits Earn Spend Live’s brand — but I’m personally more 50-shades-of-black-with-a-sprinkling-of-white-some-days. Nonetheless, I chose the Navy Bora Bora Bustier Bikini Top and Bottom, crossed my fingers, and anxiously awaited their delivery.
The Prodigal Swimsuit has Arrived
Color me shocked because I actually loved the entire suit. By the sheer grace of God I ordered the right top size and it was incredibly flattering. The straps are removable so the top can be strapless, and it has underwire cups that provide ample support. The bottom fit like a glove as well, and the ruching on the sides was a subtle but sexy detail. Both the top and bottom are lined as well.
I wore the swimsuit at both the beach and the pool on my vacation, and was happy to find out that no matter how many oceans waves crashed over me or jumps my nieces begged me to make into the pool with them, both the top and bottom stayed perfectly in place.
Added Protection to Keep You Cool
The coolest part of the swimsuit though (aside from the fact that it looked amazing) is that the fabric is actually UV50 proof. The swimsuit, and all of Snapper Rocks clothing/swimwear, blocks 98% of harmful UVA and UVB rays. That means you get added protection from the sun on the skin you don’t normally put sunscreen on. I love a good tan, but I also love not having skin cancer, so the suit gave me some much-needed piece of mind while I spent a week in the sun.
The top cost $69 and the bottoms were $55, but I honestly think the set was worth the price. Finding a swimsuit with a flattering cut for my body is practically impossible, but the Bora Bora Bustier Top and Bottom did all the things I wanted them too, and the suit even got a glowing compliment from my mother, who is the harshest critic when it comes to swimwear.
Snapper Rock’s Customer Service: A+
I loved my suit, but there was a slightly hiccup at first. The original top I received in the mail actually had a hole in the lining right below of the cups and several runs in the fabric on the side. Thankfully, Snapper Rock quickly answered my email and sent me a replacement top within two days, which arrived in time for my trip. Sometimes items end up damaged from production, but Snapper Rock was easy to work with and made sure that I got a top free of errors. When you’re spending that much money on a swimsuit, it’s important to know you’ll get high quality customer service from the company should there be an issue.
Thanks to Snapper Rock’s customer service and seriously amazing swimsuits, I’ll be adding them into my yearly swimsuit shopping rotation. I’ve actually got my eye on the Raspberry Bora Bora Bustier Top and Bottom — I think it’d be a good suit to have on hand the rest of the summer.
