THE PRIZE

shade clothing swim suit collection

Shade is giving away a swim suit (winner’s choice) to one reader!

MY REVIEW

Can you believe it’s July already! I can’t believe 2009 is halfway over – where has the summer gone? The warm weather has passed me by too quickly so far, and I am going to make up for it in July and August with some more time at the pool in my Shade swimsuit.

You all know how I feel about Shade, and this summer I got to try out my first Shade swimsuit. Just like all of other Shade clothing lines, they carry a handful of basic and classy styles in a few different prints, so it’s easy to find something that you’ll love.

My number 1 favorite thing about Shade swim suits is the honest to goodness bra in the tankini. I’m not overly busty, but I like me a supportive bra in a swimsuit, especially when I’m nursing. And the fabric is thick and just feels substantial, like you’re really covered with fabric that will hold its shape and won’t disintegrate after a summer at the pool.

I got the gorgeous plum suit up there, but it was a tough choice. Those are my 5 favorites. Can I have 5 favorites? I can’t wait to see what Shade’s swim collection looks like next summer!

Thanks, Shade!

I like the Venice top, but if i won I would get the bora bora top and give it to my sister. I know she hasn’t bought a new suit since she got home from her mission. She might not even have one.

13 Jane of SF July 6, 2009 at 7:51 am

My favorite is the Naples. I like Shade’s clothes, but I’d love it if they did more non-halter-top swimsuits, and if they’d put an underwire bra in some of them!

I like the Venice top – in black of course because who doesn’t want to look thinner in a swimsuit??? and the black swim skirt with bottoms.

A few years ago I bought a shade suit and was SHOCKED that I loved it as much as I did. Who’d have thought that a suit bought site unseen would fit perfectly and look adorable? I’ve been sold on them ever since.

42 Susan Driggers July 6, 2009 at 9:04 am

85 Mhari Fleischman July 6, 2009 at 10:36 am

I purchased a Shade swimsuit top and bottom last year and absolutely love it. I am not large chested but the top fit well and helped keep me supported and feeling great. I also love the swim bottom with skirt because it does help minimize my butt also making me feel like a million bucks!

My favorite suit this year is a tie between the Bora Bora and the Hermosa. Both look fabulous!

86 shannon July 6, 2009 at 10:38 am

My favorite swimsuit at Shade is the Balboa Print Swim Top in sea green with slimmer swim bottoms in the color light aqua. I just got it about 2 weeks and I LOVE IT!! I love how its a cute halter top and a cute cut out in the back but it is still modest and its the first swimsuit I feel comfortable in. The slimmer bottoms are amazing! I love the band around the top so they aren’t the little bottoms that fall off. Shade is definitely my favorite MODEST swimwear store. They are very good quality and their prices are VERY good! I CAN’T wait to dip into the pool again and show it off and also can’t wait for next year’s swimwear line. Thanks Shade for amazing MODEST and CUTE swimwear!!!

My favorite Shade Swim collection for 2009 is…
Venice Beach Solid Swim Top (in black) paired with the Slimmer Swim Bottoms (also in black).
After being pregnant 3 summers in a row and not swimming at all, this is the summer that is going to be different! I need and love the coverage Shade Swim offers and desperately need the bra inside (that is so rare to find) for support.
Thanks for the awesome giveaway! You are the coolest. Can’t wait to see what’s next. :)

The Naples Swim Top I love it because it is the essence of Esther Williams. it makes me want to stand up in the water. Usualy I use my unger sisters and i feel so bla that i sit with my head just above water so i wont be seen .so Esther Williams would be a real plus all women want to be a like swan lake. this top makes the person werring it the swan in the lake!

I love the balboa swim top in black and the black swim skirt with attached bottoms.

These would be sooooooo great since the last bathing suit I bought was 6 years ago – when I was 17 years old! My bottoms are ruined from a trip to Seven Peaks and my top just doesn’t cut it. Padded is much more important to me now-a-days.

Would LOVE to win this suit if you pick me!

As a new first time mom to an amazing 1 month old little boy, I would love to spend the summer out of the shade and in the sun with a shade swimsuit. With a much bustier figure, these suits look like they would provide just the support that I need to get back out into the sun and feel better about my new body. I love the Venice Beach swimsuit top! It looks so flattering and supportive providing just what I need.
