Leonisa Ruffled Black Swimsuit

Confession time.  I haven’t bought a swimsuit in 8 years.  I hate the process of going into the stores and trying things on.  And I never find anything that makes me feel good.  This year I’ve been dealing with a little quarter-life body crisis.  My weight has been redistributing and settling in new places.  It’s fine.  I just dont know how to dress myself some days.  I wasn’t planning on buying a suit this year, but when Leonisa approached me about giving them a try, I figured “what the heck”.

I really wanted a good basic.  Something I could wear to the beach or the pool that was simple, slimming and provided me with coverage, while still having some style and feeling young.  I went with this one-piece with ruffled detail and open back.  Their website is great.  I took measurements and used their sizing guide to find the right fit (and I’m glad I did!  Had I gone with my first guess, I would have purchased the wrong size!).

Leonisa Ruffled One Piece with Tummy Control

It arrived on my doorstep super fast and I actually couldn’t wait to try it on.  It fits like a glove!  The measurement charts on the website were totally accurate.  It covers and controls areas I’m not super thrilled with right now, and shows off areas I love (like my back).  I love the keyhole detail in the front.  And the ruffles are great for girls who are less endowed like me.  I can tell it’s well made.  I feel super secure in it.  I’m really pleased!  I can see this being my favorite suit for years to come.  I actually feel good in it, something I never thought I’d say about a swimsuit.

I haven’t been to the lake yet, but I did wear the suit to wash the dogs.  It was very glamorous.

I’m not one to post photos of myself in a bathing suit, but you get one brave “selfie” after I gave the dogs a bath.  I do actually feel comfortable and confident enough in it that if I could I would post a full length photo modeling the suit, but this is the best I could do when I was home by myself.

    Beautiful! I had to buy a swimsuit this summer (mine was 10 yrs old and getting pretty thin). So glad you found something you love!
