What's a better way to kick off summer than to score your very own *FREE* swimsuit?! Albion Fit came knocking on my virtual door last month and wanted to partner up on a fun summer giveaway for all of you fab ladies here at LCH. They also offered to send me two swimsuits of my choosing so I could actually check out the Albion Fit experience first hand and share my thoughts. Albion Fit is all about being a local, family owned business that strives for ethical, fair trade labor while being environmentally aware. Not only do they create quality swimwear, but they're also the makers of stylish active wear. I can only speak for the swimwear portion of their brand, but to say I'm impressed is an understatement!
I promise I'm not saying any of this because they're sponsoring a giveaway, but for real... they're good! I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Criss Cross one piece (!!!) and the Midnight Dip swimsuit. I immediately knew the Criss Cross was a total homerun when I opened it. It's the most crisp, summertime yellow, and the gathered detail is so incredibly flattering. I wore this while we were boating and camping at the river for Memorial Day weekend. Even around dozens upon dozens of people, I felt confident and comfortable. The straps up top are a bit wide, so when I was sunbathing I just tucked them down into the sides to make it a strapless number (I like to avoid wonky tan lines if possible!) It also dips down in the back so it allows me to avoid a weird tan line there, too. I am head over heels in love with this swimsuit! I wish the website had better photos of it because it does not even remotely do it justice! // The Midnight Dip swimsuit (bottom left in the photo above) is equally as gorgeous, but I haven't had a chance to really spend a lot of time in it yet (I jump for the Criss Cross without even thinking!) It's a "dressy" sort of suit and I like that aspect a lot. It also has removable straps which you can convert to wear in multiple ways. In terms of sizing, I'd say it ran a smidge small (at least compared to the Criss Cross which I got in the same size).
Had the Sunrise high waisted bathing suit been up when I picked my two out, I would've jumped at it without thinking twice! I am absolutely in love with the color combination and the cut of both the top and bottom. I love that it's a fresh take on what you would otherwise see in a high waisted swimsuit.
Now you get to choose which swimsuit you'd want to frolic around in!
