Summer is always present in equatorial Singapore, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t still dressÂ for Spring/Summer 15 with my newest love courtesy of Vedette Shapewear! This one-piece Bessie swimsuit shapewear features the cutest boyshorts cut andÂ light boning on the sides, which enables movement without compromising on its structure, so you know, swimming is actually possible in it. But what really got me was its watercolour florals and parrot motifs. I’m such a sucker for this section of the color spectrum.
Getting into this swimsuit (as with most one-piece swimsuits) proved to be a bit of a problem, since my hips are ten inches larger than my waist (I measured multiple timesÂ just to be sure because I just don’t look it). To make things harder, gravity was working against what strength my bony arms could afford trying to pull this piece up my butt. Woe becomes the pear-shaped. I’m still so in love with it though! Trying to figure out a way to make getting into it easier without destroying the piece. Any ideas?
As usual, I’m styling this swimsuit into my everyday outfit, because only wearing swimsuits to the pool is a waste of such pretty clothes, no? My lime green denim shorts was naturally the perfect fit in the grand colour scheme of things while I sought to root myself through the brown of my JC boots. A pair of pink sunnies and dried flowers to top off my floral outfit (there’s even a cute little flower detail to tie the swimsuit together!) and I was good to to wander the outside world as an honorary member of my namesake (Ficus Microcarpa).
Anyway, I’m so pleased to finally be trying on one of Vedette Shapewear’s swimsuit shapers. My original collaboration with them was supposed to be for their growing swimsuit collection, but they’re so popular that they ran out of my size! I took a lucky shot at their newest additions and here I am, finally the happy owner of such a beautiful turquoise piece. I hope they come out with a two-piece in the future, I’ll definitely be getting my hands on one of those now that I know how good a quality their swimsuits are.
