If you are thinking- there is NO way I am getting into a bathing suit this summer I am here to tell you- there is a bathing suit for your body type and all you need to do is get out there and find it. And here's my truth, I have been working out and watching my diet for three long years. Is my body perfect. NO. Do I wish I had zero cellulite on the backs of my thighs?
Yes. Am I going to tell my son, when he begs me to go into the pool with him, ” Mommy can't” because I am too ashamed to wear a swimsuit because my body is NOT READY YET? NO. Because, my body will never be ready. But I am proud of my body- it has served me for 40 long years- it has housed two kids and it has afforded me so many precious moments. And I am going to be as gentle to my body and my self esteem as possible- by not giving into my insecurities about whether or not my thighs are perfectly toned. Instead I'm on a mission to find a bathing suit that makes me feel as good as I possibly can — which means it has to have LOTS of lycra and dark colors. And then a company called Despi swimwear contacted me and asked if I'd like to try their swimwear. At fist I hesitated, and then I thought- I'm 41- I'm not getting any younger and if I don't seize the moment and Get in the pool with my kid before I know it my kid WON'T care if I get in the pool at all.
So I went for it- they send me two suits and I have to say their stuff is fun and flirty with styles, colors and patterns that will add a sexy Brazilian vibe to any summer beach getaway. With bikinis, one pieces, cover ups and accessories, there are pieces for every woman's lifestyle.
A Despi product is always innovative. It is created for women who are self-confident and want to be noticed. Each suit is crafted with unique details: whether it's a pop of color, a dramatic accessory, an unexpected style or an intriguing texture; no matter what the element of surprise is the final look will always enhance the femininity and sensuality of the woman. Despi pieces stand out by the beauty of the accessories, embroideries and different artisanal techniques such as crochets, tricots and macramÃ©'s. All the elements that adorn each masterpiece are exclusively made by Despi manufacturing. Despi suits are perfect for the modern and sophisticated woman who likes to dare news styles, a woman that is curious and dreamy, a woman that always re-invents herself.
The Lycra is incredibly soft to the touch because it's micro-fiber and it has a high flexibility thus allowing the pieces to be constructed without concern with the fit in those hard to hide places that not even a diet can accommodate. The lining is also made of microfiber in order not to interfere with comfort and look of the suit. The metallic accessories are dipped in gold; many also have Swarovski ® crystals or resins that mimic polished gemstones. Despi suites also include semi-precious stones like Jade and mother pearls and natural leathers.
