Most people dread wearing a bathing suit because it exposes part of their bodies that even they are not comfortable seeing. Even though I have the same insecurities as every woman, for me, getting into a bathing suit is something I fear because, if you haven’t noticed, the sun and I don’t hang out often or for too long. I have a very fair complexion. That doesn’t mean wearing a bathing suit is out of the question – I love being at the beach, on a boat, or by the pool just as everyone else does – but it means I have to outfit my porcelain skin correctly. With a mission to provide women with luxurious, flattering, and hassle free-fitness/leisure wear and swimsuits, Albion Fit contacted me in the beginning of the summer to try on and host a giveaway. Looking around their site, their suits were the perfect solution for how to flatter not only my skin (my biggest insecurity) but my body. Also, the’re products are ladylike without compromise exposure – just enough skin is revealed. I chose the Icon Swimsuit to review and when I received it, I was more than impressed with the construction and the fit. The fabric is sturdy and the fit keeps everything in place. Plus, I loved the one shoulder!
What I love most about Albion is their ethics and commitment to the environment and sense of community. They strive to make their manufacturing facilities greener by recycling plant waste and by using earth friendly materials in their products. They also follow fair labor practices with all of their employees and business partners to create a sustainable work environment. Even though I am becoming more and more committed to make and wear a handmade wardrobe, I know that I can’t escape buying manufactured clothing in this day and age. So I appreciate companies who make efforts to be green, however big or small their gestures are.
