Made in France

Picking a summer swimsuit is hard, isn’t it? I have the hardest time every year! I want something cute, but not too revealing. Something sexy but not really sexy. And something I can actually get int he pool with and enjoy my kids.

This year a friend from France sent me an amazing suit. They are handmade in France and they are so beautiful. For me, it’s been the perfect blend of sexy but not too revealing. I love the bottoms because they fit so perfect on my bum that nothing is falling out places that it shouldn’t be, but they don’t look like little boys underwear either if you know what I mean…


It looks darker here than the pictures below because I had just got out of the water. Honestly, it’s hard to get a body shot of yourself in a bikini without feeling really awkward about it. Or at least for me. I am no model and don’t claim to be! But I wanted you to see how well the swimsuit is made and how cute and fun the details all are!


The main material is regular swimsuit material and the sides is made from thread. There is a pretty stitching around the sides and I love the contrast of the orange and pink. They have a lot of beautiful colors too, I love how they are so bright and fun they are! I am all for colors any time of year, but for the summer, they just work.

The strings wrap around and tie in the front. I like the little tassels in front too. But my favorite part of the suit is the bottoms.

I just love the way that they’re cut and the way that they fit. I have a hard time finding bottoms, I have a bigger tushie, but the way the cut doesn’t cut into my butt, but just sits nicely. It’s had to describe, but they just fit the best I think I’ve ever had!


I also love this one. I love the different design for the bottoms and the fun bandeau top.

    This is so cute! I love the thread! Did it hold up in the wash? My swim suit this year is a mess because I was nursing my son when I bought it, I’m not nursing anymore and it’s totally sagging and falling off. LOL! Wish I had the confidence to wear a bikini like you 🙂

      The thread did hold up! It’s really well-made for sure. And you can do it, I mean, why not! Wear what you want to wear and what you feel comfortable in! I like two pieces more than bikinis so that’s what I wear! 🙂
