Swimsuit shopping is the only time I truly despair about fashion. Refusing to even enter a dressing room with a bathing suit, I do all my swimwear shopping at home, over the Internet. This season, so far, I have bought and returned about $700 worth of swimsuits. And that is excluding the five suits I bought in the spring anticipating some sort of abdominal transformation that did not happen. I cannot return those.
There is no hiding in a swimsuit–no layering, pulling, holding it in is going to change what’s going on in my post-three-kids body. So I was intrigued–and desperate–when I heard there may be a solution as easy as turning off those harsh dressing room lights.
Is it possible to look 10 pounds lighter in the time it takes to pull up a swimsuit? Miraclesuit Swimwear will be showing normal, regular, you-and-me, non-model-type women around New York City that the right bathing suit can change your profile and your attitude about pool parties.
Miraclesuit Swimwear, a leader in shaping garments for women, is teaming up with Momtrends, another expert on making moms feel better and sexier, to celebrate the official beginning of summer and the start of its “Summer in the City” campaign. The exquisite model and fashion expert Roshumba Williams will be traveling through Manhattan accompanied by bloggers who are also real moms as they show off their Miraclesuits.
By following on Twitter using the hashtag #miraclesuitcelebratessummer, many lucky women of New York will meet the lovely Ms. Williams and her entourage of moms as they tour the city.
This Thursday, June 21, look for the red double decker bus as you follow Momtrends and Miraclesuit Swimwear (@miraclesuitswim and @momtrends) from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET around the city.
