Searching for the right fit in a swimsuit can become the worlds biggest struggle. It’s something I never anticipate being difficult, and usually enter into the task feeling fairly optimistic. Six stores, at least twenty swimsuits, and zero purchases later, I’m completely shot. I’m frustrated, upset, and starting to think that there’s something abnormal about my body that doesn’t allow me to properly fit into the swimsuits in these general stores. They’re either running too big, or the straps are too snug, or making the upper half of my body look somewhat disproportionate. The simple task of getting a swimsuit for vacation has now turned into a complete debacle, leaving me less excited for my trip and more stressed about having nothing to wear on the beach.
Here’s a little background on me, to give you a clearer view on my struggles. I’m about 5’3″, somewhat petite in size, with a little bit of a curve. I’ve also got a long torso, so many of the one-pieces I’d have to buy as a kid were too snug, or if I went the next size up, too big. Matched swimsuit sets were another hassle, since then I’d have to buy two sets – one for the proper fitting top, another for the bottom – and ending up with two extra pieces. So you can understand why I’ve had such problems in the past.
Thankfully, Coco Reef (and our sister brand, Coco Rave) has come up with the perfect solution to the problems I’ve faced all too often – Bra-Sized Swimwear. Many of us don’t fit into tops that are sized Small, Medium, Large, etc., which can cause a massive disruption in fit. Perfection Fit swimsuits are fitted the same way your bra is, allowing you to find a more specific size, allowing for a more custom feel, without the custom price tag. Mix and match bottoms allow you to decide what leg line and style is best for your body shape, so you’ll never feel uncomfortable with something that’s not offering as much coverage as you’d like. Basically, they’ve done everything possible to help you look and feel your best in and out of the water.
I could go on and on about the benefits of bra-sized swimwear, but honestly, you’ll need to try it to understand my enthusiasm. Every suit feels as though it’s been perfectly fitted to your body, solely by offering a better fit and more accurate sizing structure.
