SlimPerfect (Review & Giveaway - 8/26)

For the month of July, SlimPerfectTM held a drawing. The winning subscriber would win a swimsuit of their choice. I couldn't believe it when I got an email from Casey, the President of SlimPerfectTM, telling me that I had won! She told me to pick out the suit (top and bottom or SlimDress) of my choice. I replied and told her that I'd love to have the Apple Martini Tankini with the capri bottoms. I also mentioned in my email that I figured the 2 piece suit would be better with a nursing baby.

What impressed me most was Casey's response. Instead of just allowing me to have my pick, she told me that customers who have nursing babies actually prefer the one-piece SlimDresses because it's easier to just pull down a strap and nurse, rather than pulling up the entire piece of the tankini. She could have just put my choice in a box and been done, but she went out of her way to make sure that I would be completely satisfied before she even sent the package. If she would do that for someone who won a free suit, imagine how well she must treat her paying customers! It really said a lot about her, and the way she handles her business. Professional and above board. Awesome.

After some back and forth, I decided to go with my original decision. I knew that we'd only hit the beach a few more times this summer, and next summer, Parker won't be nursing anymore. So, she got my order in the mail, and it arrived in record time.

When I opened the package, and tried on the suit, I absolutely couldn't believe it. I liked the way I looked. Did you hear that? I really, really liked the suit, and I loved what it did for my figure! Now, I am not a small woman. I used to be. When Gene and I married, I was teeny tiny. But, after 4 kids in 6 years, it's taken a real toll on my body, and I'm just not the tiny little thing my husband married almost 7 years ago. I honestly haven't worn a swimsuit in years. When we went to the beach this summer, I wore a tank top and a long pair of shorts. I wanted to do everything in my power to hide my body. When I put on this SlimPerfectTM suit, I didn't feel like that. I felt like I could show myself in public and really be ok with it! This suit is absolutely a miracle worker.

The only thing that I would even consider changing about the suit is that I wish the black mesh part at the v-neck were solid black instead of the see-through mesh. That's the ultra-conservative part of me talking, and while the suit is very modest, I'd really like it to be very, very modest. :)

Oh, and can you believe that I actually posted pictures of myself in a swimsuit? Only in a SlimPerfectTM Suit would I ever consider doing that! :) (And thanks to my beautiful daughter, Ashley, for taking the photos!)

    The Black Aqua SlimDress

  2. Kandi said...

    Congratulations for winning. I entered a few giveaways for slimperfect but decided to buy me one. I hate swimsuits and was saying just last year they need to make a dress like way back when. I want coverage! I got the black and white slim dress. I agree with you on the mesh part. It slimmed all the parts I wanted it to, it was a bit heavy. I would like to get the tank and shorts or pants next..thinking it might be a bit easier to get on. Thanks for a chance to win!

    I have never heard of these....and Angie after reading your post thought "I have to have one"

    I hate wearing a bathing suit, but with a pool and being so close to the ocean, I melt wearing my shorts and T-shirt, but after 7 babies I'am TOTALLY self concious of how I look in a bathing suit.
    I cant wait to get mine in!!!
