Its Hot in Here! The Swimsuit Edition

Today is a bit of a double duty post...2 tours 1 post Its part of The Swimsuit Edition Tour but also part of Ti's monthly tours.

I now I really don't have an excuse not to have more fun in the sun! Swimsuit No.2 which is the Agility Tank and Riptide Shorties by 5 Out Of 4 patterns.

At first I was concerned that this pattern wouldn't make the best swimsuit due to the amount of fabric on the tank top, but I really wanted something to hide the not so pretty results of having 4 kids. I know its a fact of life and just about everyone who's had kids have these warrior marks, right?! The amount of fabric doesn't weigh the suit down but I would suggest wearing it if you plan to win a swim race.

I also love how high the shorties go, they are really highwaisted. And the coverage on the butt is perfect!

I just want to quickly touch on all the options in the Agility Tank pattern. Seriously so full, including instructions on how to put in cups, on how to make it nursing friendly and what fabric to use to get the best suppport, because obviously it can also be used to make workout outfits paired with the Ninja leggings.

  1. I have been eyeing that Agility Tank and wondering about it as a swim top! I love the fabric on yours. My husband might not be too excited that I stopped by to check out this tour as I do believe I will be adding to my collection! Love your make!!

  2. This looks great! I love that it offers the coverage of a whole piece swimsuit without the "hassle" (having to FULLY take the suit off for bathroom breaks-lol!)

  3. Looks greats! I especially love the gathering on the bottoms.

  4. You did a great job on that, Deb!

  5. I am a big fan in the Riptide shorties...they make everyone's backsides look amazing. 😂

  6. I'm loving the look of the Agility Top for a tankini top! You look like you are totally ready to get out there and enjoy some summer fun! Nice job!
