DownEast Basics swimwear review and {GIVEAWAY!!}


Not to be outdone by the other swimsuit reviews that have recently been done on here, I present you with DownEast Basics swimwear line. If you are in the market for a modest swim suit, you will not be disappointed by the options at DownEast. Here are few of my favorites:


If you're anything like me, the more a swimsuit covers, the better. That is why I am in need of this adorable Malibu Swim Skirt. It is so adorable and goes with several of the suits at DownEast.

I was able to review the Sausalito Halter suit:

You have the option of choosing different colors for the top and bottom which is fun because you can mix and match colors. I chose orange and pink and could not love this suit more! It is the cutest swim suit I have ever owned and it fits really well. It was longer then I expected and fully covered my stomach which is always something I am looking for.

If you thought I was going to put a picture of myself wearing it on here, you definitely thought wrong. I am almost 3 month pregnant and am getting just chubby enough that showing off my body in a swimsuit is not an option.
