"This swimsuit is super flattering and hides my tummy (hallelujah)," wrote one happy swimsuit shopper. "I have the worst time finding a swimsuit that fits me well and doesn’t make me look like a busted can of biscuits every time I want to swim with my kids. I’ve actually purchased two of these. The first looked so good that I had to get one more because I loved it so much..."
"I love these glasses," wrote a shaded shopper. "Truly, they are comfortable and look fabulous. The polarized lenses make driving so much easier on sunny days. The case is a generous addition. I love having the case hooked right onto my purse so I never leave these anywhere. And the price! I'm buying a second pair just because!"
"These shorts are perfect for curvy girls," wrote a satisfied shopper. "I CANNOT wear standard fit women’s clothing because I have thighs, hips and a [butt] for days. The waist is always too big. The curvy fit option fit me like a glove with room to move at the thighs which almost never happens. Buy these!"
"...I get horrible back, leg and foot pain," a shopper shared. "This literally helps relieve my pain while I’m working standing on my feet. They are super cute. I get tons of compliments on them and they are breathable, lightweight and easy to keep clean."
"Did I need another tote?" wrote an excited shopper. "NO. Did I pass up buying this cute and stylish summer bag? Also, NO. This bag will not disappoint whether you are using it for a day at the beach or as a fun summer tote to take you all the places you need to go. It's sturdy and constructed well with a zipper and lining. Arm straps are a great length for carrying either with your hands or on the shoulder. It comes in a nice bag for storage. I have sunshine all summer long with this fantastic find!"
"Baywatch better watch out!" wrote a happy swimmer. "Let me tell y’all… I LOVE this swimsuit. I bought it for an 80s jazzercise costume but it quickly revealed itself to be my new favorite swimsuit. I feel incredibly beautiful and I’ve already gotten so many compliments on it. I feel like a certified Baywatch lifeguard waiting for David Hasselhoff to give me orders."
"I really wanted to buy some Birks, but couldn't bring myself to pay the price, so I decided to go for these instead, and I was pleasantly surprised!" a happy traveler shared. "They are so cute, and I had more than one friend think they were the real deal. They go with everything and hold up very well. I wore them everywhere on my vacation to Tulum, Mexico, and they were perfect. I've been dealing with painful plantar fasciitis in my feet, and I've discovered on the days I wear these shoes my feet do not hurt nearly as much by the end of the day. I just bought a pair in another color and a pair for each of my teenagers because they keep stealing mine!"
"Absolutely love these!" wrote a delighted fashionista. "Not only do they look great, but they are genuine polarized glasses. My eyes are getting weaker and I can’t tolerate a lot of bright light. I’m finely aging!!! I can see very clearly with them whilst attempting to look hot. Life is good!"
